3. Prima Palette – £13.99
This palette is made for the glitter babe among us and is perfect for party season if you’re an eyes over lips girl. In this magnetic palette you get 15 shadows including 6 matte shades, 4 shimmers and 5 full on glitters. While the glitter shades may be a bit hard to navigate for eyeshadow novices, we’re obsessed with the mattes and shimmers which is made up of warm/neutral hues that allow you to create some on-trend, subtle looks.

9 gorgeous warm-toned shades in a sleek little black compact case is what’s on offer in this purse-friendly, yet high-quality eyeshadow palette. Autumnal tones of pumpkin, ruby, red wine, gold and burgundy form the dominant theme, and all colours, while not heavily pigmented, give enough colour payoff for you to create a striking, statement-making eye. The gold shade in particular is quintessentially seasonal, and will suit all shades of brown.
5. Make Up For Ever – Star Lit – £20
Your makeup enthusiast sister friend will adore you forever should you gift her with this gorgeous eye palette from Make Up For Ever for Christmas. Shades range from bronzey tones with a slight shimmer, right up to browns, greys and the most striking electric blue shade called ‘Halo’. It’s unusual to find a palette where all 18 shades are complementary to dark skin tones, but such is the case with Star Lit, due to the colours being classic and fail safe, yet still offering enough sparkle to make it a worthwhile buy for the Christmas season. Added bonus: 3 handy pull out cards featuring instructions on how to achieve 3 very different eye looks. Extra bonus: this palette is now on special offer at escentual.com, slashed from £40 to £20 .
