What’s not to love about this gorgeous palette from Shu Umeura, with the prettest palette case we’ve seen for years? Manga style festive illustrations make it a Christmas must-have. Inside, the shades are beautifully frosty – anyone can make this look work – it’s icy beauty at it’s very best. Colour your lower lid with any of the blue/grey hues and use the cream highlighter to accentuate and add light above the lid towards the eye brow. You can then line just above the lash line with the plum shade to add depth to the look. Alternatively, try using the pale cream eyeshadow over the entire eye area and line with the vivid turquoise for eyes that just pop with drama! Give your cheeks a Nordic style flush with pretty pink, and just add a slick of sheer gloss to complete the look.
