Much to my delight, Spring is now in full swing. We’ve had a few nice warm days and hopefully they’ll be here to stay soon. I love the lighter evenings, the warmer weather and just the general feel good of the spring/summer months. I also love the switch in my make up – lighter bases, coral lips and gorgeous eyeshadows – I love my rose gold/dusty pink hues which I think are the prime shades for Spring and that is why I consider these two the ‘perfect’ spring palettes..
Urban Decay Naked 3
My all time favourite palette! I love each shade in this one but my favourites would have to be Dust, Buzz and Trick, they are just so beautiful. As you can see, the Naked 3 contains 12 rose-hued neutrals. There are pale, shimmery pinks and a deep black matte containing red micro glitter which is absolutely stunning. It really does cater for a lot of different eye looks and for this, it’s a great spring palette. Whether you like a light, barely there look or a sultry smokey eye, it’s all achievable with the Naked 3. It’s well worth it’s £38 price tag, in my opinion. All 12 shades are immensely pigmented and there is little fall out especially with the matte shades. I know shimmery eyeshadows aren’t to everyone’s taste but the ones in the Naked 3 are just so damn pretty and I love them.
L’Oreal La Palette Nude Rose
If you can’t splurge on the Naked 3, this palette from L’Oreal is a great alternative at £15. Not only does it include 10 gorgeous shades which are all fairly similar to the shades featured in the Naked 3, this palette is also handy for travel as it’s pretty compact so you can just pop it in your handbag! In La Palette Nude Rose, the shimmer shades are far less glittery than those in the Naked 3, so if you’re not a huge lover of shimmer, this might be perfect for you! The only downside to this palette is that the shades are a lot less pigmented than Naked 3, in my opinion. However, you can still create some gorgeous looks with this and it is one of my most reached for palettes.
