Christmas is a time for giving, but gifts can sometimes be a bit tricky. One thing for sure though is that any make-up lover would appreciate a good eye shadow palette! It doesn’t matter what your budget is as there’s a price mark for everyone – so whether it’s a secret Santa or your well-deserving best friend, here are a few recommendations!

Too Faced Sweet Peach Palette
I actually received this one as a birthday gift as I’d had my eye on it for a long time and hadn’t tried out any Too Faced products at the time! I know that at first glance it might seem like more of a spring and summer palette but don’t let the collective look deceive you! There are some great neutrals in here and some more vibrant shades that can be built up for some great Christmas and New Year looks – meaning they can get some use out of it straight away! It may be more high-end with a steeper price tag but it’s definitely worth it!

Desert Sun Palette
This palette just screams the word ‘dupe’ at me but I can’t quite put my finger on which palette it reminds me of most. It’s a cross between the ABH Modern Renaissance, Huda Beauty Desert Dusk and the Natasha Denona Sunset palettes, so a great mix of some raved about palettes! I love a good dupe because life on a budget doesn’t always allow a big splurge on a high-end product and dupes are a great replacement to fill that void! This one is $19.99 which some people may not see as a huge bargain but it’s a palette that you could use every single day and still find various looks for! It covers all seasons and occasions and is so versatile that I’d recommend it to everyone – form beginners to experts!

Kylie Cosmetics Nice Palette
I feel like the Kylie hype has worn off slightly this year but you can’t deny she still creates some great products! The Nice palette is the product that caught my eye in her latest Holiday collection and I think it’d make the perfect gift! I’ve tried some of her palettes before (Bronze is my go-to) and they really did pleasantly surprise me. Nice has such a lovely color range to suit any eye color so it’s a great palette to buy for a Kardashian/Jenner fan!

Glam & Glitter Palette
Everybody loves glitter right? It’s not very often you actually find a glitter palette with so many colours – I mean Urban Decay tried but they didn’t reach 24 shades. Glitter goes with everything so even if you know somebody into makeup but you don’t have a clue where to start, I think this would be a good pick! There’s a colour to match every look and it’s only $19.99 – you really can’t go wrong here!

Morphe Fall into Frost Palette
Don’t get me wrong, there are a few palettes that look similar to each other but Fall into Frost definitely stands out to me! I’ve seen a few posts on Instagram and I just fall more in love each time. There’s a mixture of matte and shimmer shades in there, both neutrals and subtle hints of color and it really is perfect for fall and winter! This ones a true winner for me and I’m sure any makeup guru would be more than pleased to open this up on Christmas day!
