Shu Uemura Dreamy Petal Palette

Even though I love summer make up, I’m starting to notice some very lovely autumn colours sneaking onto counters already! So while my make up bag is full of bright colours, shimmering bronzers and gorgeous glossy pinks, it’s only a matter of time before gold, sparkling browns and purples start to make an appearance. Here’s my pick of the early autumn crop.

Shu Uemura Dreamy Petal Palette

A blend of powdery pinks, gold and splashes of dramatic black and purple for perfect, lined eyes, are complimented by a red, creamy blush. Its winter blooms at their very best, with unique packaging by up and coming Japanese artist, Lisa Kohno.

£49, Stockists: 020 7240 7635.

Estee Lauder Blue Dahlia Five Colour Eyeshadow Palette in Surreal Violet

Estee Lauder Blue Dahlia Five Colour Eyeshadow Palette in Surreal Violet

I love this mix of blues and purples for dramatic eyes or touches of colour to a neutral look making it versatile for day or night. Each shade can be blended beautifully or worn alone for mono-magic – the compact is neat and sleek – perfect for a bit of ‘show off’ touch ups!

£34, at counters nationwide.

Guerlain Ecrin 6 Couleurs Palette in Champs Elysees

Guerlain Ecrin 6 Couleurs Palette in Champs Elysees

Try not to squeak at the price of these amazingly intricate eye palettes; they’re worth every single penny. Chiselled, metal latticework with the signature Guerlain bee for starters, and an easel effect, side opening mirror gives it the kind of detail that other palettes can only aspire to! The shades are dark in nuances of grey and brown but each colour-way has a pop of bright to bring up the look.

£51, at counters nationwide.
