Hypothetical Palette Talk: If you could have any colours….

I just lurrrveeee palettes and sticking everything into a palette.  Check out my Unii!

I think I have this idea that one day there will be a huge disaster, like an explosion in a marshmallow factory and I’ll be stuck (literally) on a bus or something.  Then I’ll be able to whip out my all in one palette and have perfectly co-ordinated colours, even if we are all starving to death and being suffocated by bright pink flump.

My palette style is, huge compact with as much variety as possible. I am not very sensible when choosing colours, I go with my heart rather than obvious choices.  Choices, choices…

Cat too much choice

I am hoping to get my paws on a 12 pan palette and I have been browsing a site to see what colours appeal to me.  Without a doubt with as much choice as 12, I need to have my favourites, a blue, a green and a black in there.  I need to have basic shades I can use with all the colours like a base colour, possibly a sparkly white for evening looks.

Everyone says I suit purple, so I need to have a purple and so I can use it as a blush a pink.  That’s 7 colours….I need your help here!

So I have down:

Matte Black

Rich Peacock Green

Metallic Ocean Blue

Matte Rich Violet Purple

Soft Baby Pink

White/Base

Sparkly White

Metallic Taupe

Chocolate Brown

Cork Brown

Yellow Gold

My question to you is this….

I am missing one more colour. Am I missing something? What is the colour I am missing?

You can be as specific as you like, the range I am thinking of has a vast range of colours.

Or am I going the wrong way about this colour combination? Have I set myself up for a palette fit for Ronald McDonald (note: this will cost me £££ so it has to be good!).

Or here’s another question – if it was you and you could pick 12 shades of eyeshadow to keep you going in a marshmallow factory explosion, what would they be???

  1. Some sort of lovely melony colour? Something like UD’s X/Muchness – such a versatile but beautiful colour that can be transformed from easy day wear to a bit more glam and jujjy at night :)

    • Hi Emily

      Melony…oh yes there used to be a MAC pigment called melon which was very pretty!

    I’m old enough and sensible enough to take three matte browns of different intensities for shading and to mix for brows, a deep cream, for a base colour, a peach for a simple wash of colour, a champagne satin for highlighting of brow and cheekbones and deep brown and black for intense shading and lining, shimmery taupe, MAC club, a satin pink and a teal to add a few more creative possibilities. I know this because this is what I’ve happily got my collection down to, I love them all but know anything else wouldn’t be any use as I know what I can get away with (no gray, purple or gold), and eye makeup is not my first love…I couldn’t choose 12 lipsticks!

    What I’ve learned over the years is that

    • Hi emilyjane

      Hmmm sounds really lovely!!! Your palette would be a keeper I think! My first love is eye make up although I do like lip products I can take or leave them. I am still looking for the ‘ultimate’ palette I can just take anywhere with me!

    oops…I was going to finish by saying go for it Row, Ronald McDonald be damned, wear what you can while you can!

  4. either a metallic lilac or some kind of graphite silver shade. Is this Inglot we are talking about?

    • Hi Toyboys

      No it’s not it’s an Asian brand :) I have a Inglot palette, it’s impressive but I choose some really odd shades!

  5. Hm, I don’t really know what to suggest. I’m bad at suggestions. D: Maybe a sparkly champagne color or a gunmetal grey?

    For my own 12 colors, I’d probably go with: matte black, shimmery champagne (i.e. Stila’s Kitten), gunmetal grey, dark metallic blue, dark metallic green, olive green, medium shimmery blue, metallic taupe, metallic medium brown, metallic dark brown, dark reddish-purple, a metallic light blue-green.

    • Hi Strawberry
      I was thinking a gunmetal grey too – I don’t know why but I am naturally drawn to greys and metallics.

      I love your choices! You love metallics too. When I first collected Shu Uemura all my shadows were metallic.
