The best winter eyeshadow palettes

Rewind a few years and I really wasn't that bothered about eyeshadow, I was all about the black liner. And while I still love liner, I've evolved from pencil lined eyes, to liquid black wings over a beautiful shadow. This time of year I feel like the right colours can really bring some life back into your look.

Because this cold weather is dreary enough right? So with that in mind, here's my favourite eyeshadow palettes and shades for this time of year. 

First up we have the low cost version of the three palettes I'm talking about today, the Maybelline The Rock Nudes Pallette. Personally, I tend to use the shimmer shades more than the mattes as I love a bit of glitter at this time of the year, it just helps to brighten. These palettes have such good quality shadows, they're so soft, really blendable and long lasting.

I have three shades that I absolutely love. The first and foremost is a really soft, grey lilac shimmer shade. It's so gorgeous, and the perfect everyday shade over winter. Although I'm a brown eyed lass, but it just looks so incredibly pretty teamed with a black winged line. To go a little darker, there is this beautiful deep purple, which goes perfectly with the lilac for more of a smokey rock look. I do absolutely love the navy shade, it's so different for me, and as a lover or navy, this is my ultimate. Again, all super blendable and I love the colours, they're just perfect for the colder months.

I have recently rediscovered this next palette, and it's unfortunately not available anymore. Which sucks, but you might be able to find it somewhere. It's the Estee Lauder Pure Colour Duo in Raisins. It's utterly beautiful. The pale pink is the absolute perfect just for everyday wear, it's so subtle and totally warming. It's really soft and easy to apply, it's also incredibly long wearing. I love teaming it with the deeper purple shade in the outer corner and crease, it's glams it up a bit more and again, blends super smoothly. It's also got a touch of shimmer to it, which I love because it brightens everything. Super pretty.

Last, but by no means least, is one you've probably seen a couple of times on here now. It's the Urban Decay Naked Smoky Palette. It's just a bit of an all around beaut. You get 12 super gorgeous, really high quality, incredibly soft shades. Some shimmer, some matte, but again I love the shimmers right now. In particular, the first three shades which are beautiful champagne, gold and bronze shades, that all go beautifully together. They're so warm, and perfect for brown eyed gals. Like me! They last all day long, and blend beautifully. I feel like I've said that a lot, But, they're only gonna be good if they blend! I think this is my favourite of the three as I do love a bit of warm golds right now.

All three palettes are perfect for this time of year, and if you can get hold of the Estee Lauder one, definitely nab it while you can. I'd love to hear what you're favourite winter shades on, so definitely put you recommendations below.

Much love, Lisa May
