On the eight day of christmas South and Finsbury brings to you …….

Five beautiful makeup palettes for the eyes, cheeks and lips 🙂

Now a good quality make up palette makes the perfect gift or treat. I’m talking about the palettes that are all rounder’s cover a multitude of features and that slip into your purse or bag for those essential little touch up’s. Every Christmas we are exposed to some beauties that I think are truly worth the money. Great for, nights out, weekends away, holidays, so you see palettes aren’t just for Christmas!

There are some brands I would not touch with a barge pole the quality is crap, some that sadly due to where I live, I cant get my hands on and then there are the ones I have featured below, that are little palettes of perfection. So at this point it is worth mentioning, I would not buy with out trying, the palettes below are the ones that I love , some houses have a wider range(and I have not featured, so its worth going to their counters), they are some colour variations, its worth spending that little bit more for a higher quality of product and little applicators that are in some too.
