Top Ten Eye Shadow Palettes
Mar 31, 2014
I am currently battling an addiction to eyeshadow palettes and being within walking distance to a mall (and Sephora) isn’t helping my illness at all!
What’s not to love about eyeshadow palettes? I love that one palette contains multiple, complimenting shades that, when mixed, can create endless looks, taking you from day to-night.
Here are my top ten favourite palettes, most of which can take you from day to-night.
