When it comes to eye-shadow palettes, cult make-up brand W7 Cosmetics is upping the ante with its Eye Contour selections, which come in an array of totally wearable colours.
With its shimmering tones, Space Out, £9.95, is the perfect ‘paint-box’ to dip into to create a smoky eye as well as a nude-look for day-time. Taking you from day to evening, the on-trend palette has 12 glimmering shades: from Orbit, a soft beige and Blast Off, a bronze with rose-gold undertones to Black Hole, a black with silvery pigments and Meteor Shower, a deep bronze.
For day, I have been rocking the natural nudes, sometimes enhancing with a touch of earthy brown or copper. While, for evening, the darker, more dramatic hues are my go-to. Best of all, you can use each colour as a single eye ‘enhancer’ or blend them together to create a defined, after-dark look.
For those wanting a lighter eye, the Life’s A Peach eye shadow palette, £9.95, offers 12 shades of peach tones with matte finishes. From six delicate neutral pales, such as Delicious and Peach Please, to brighter, pops of colour, such as Nice and Fruity, a purple-brown shade, and Sweet Stalk, a dark brown – the whole palette is really versatile and just the thing for the summer months.
As ever, W7 Cosmetics has become the industry insider’s favourite for its extensive range of high-quality cosmetics at affordable prices. Since it launched in 2002, it has grown steadily and now boasts a collection of over 500 products, none of which are tested on animals. Known for its useable palettes, it is also an industry leader with its Ebony Collection for darker skin tones, making them so much more than just a pretty face…
