Best budget eyeshadow palettes

Prefer a power lip over a statement eye? It might be time to change your ways. Of course, we’re not saying to do away with lipstick altogether, but while our face masks have become part of our daily uniform, it’s worth taking some time to up your shadow stakes. From soft honey tones to fluoro brights, a swirl of eyeshadow has the instant ability to pull together any make-up look. Just take your cue from the Autumn/Winter’20 runway where swoops of colour around the eyes at Matty Bovan proved that more is definitely more. And at Self-Portrait, things went day-glo with fluoro pink.

The trick? Have some fun with it. Forget about colouring within the lines and being neat – the more lived-in and smudged it looks, the better. To help you nail the trend, we’ve rounded up the best budget eyeshadow palettes that will set you back from as little as £3. Nowadays, you needn’t splash the cash to own an army of eyeshadows. There are so many brilliant purse-friendly palettes that house a huge variety of colours in pigment-rich formulas that stay put for hours.

So, without further ado, scroll on down to discover our curated edit of the best budget eyeshadow palettes 2020…
