If I'm looking for a light wash of colour or a highlighter for the inner corners of my eyes then I always reach for the Nars Rigel Eyeshadow, a dreamy must have for the Christmas parties! Another single eyeshadow I've recently dug out is the Clarins Aquatic Rose* offering; a one sweep wonder that gives the perfect hit of rose gold to my makeup. The H&M Eyeshadow in Paradise Lost, a champagne pink that has speckles of gold in, makes for a great Christmas pick too.
Sometimes the best golds are found within palettes and the hue pop in the Charlotte Tilbury Dolce Vita is the perfect intense shade when applied with a wet brush and it contrasts well with a darker matte brown for a super easy smokey eye.
The Zoeva Rose Golden Palette* has the perfect ten shades for the festive season, ranging from a rich metallic copper to a foiled golden hue. This palette is very limited online, but the cocoa blend palette looks like a great alternative with similar golden shades. Zoeva's palettes are incredible affordable and the formulas they use are super dreamy and creamy, perfect for blending.
If you're looking for a palette that not only serves you up a lot of golden tones but will cover you for all occasions, then look no further because the Urban Decay Naked 3- a twelve shadow palette- is a divine option. The rose gold and dark gold hues all work in sync together to create a shimmery, smokey eye that looks perfect paired with a vivid red lipstick.
