What’s your go-to neutral palette? Natasha Denona Star Palette. It’s so lovely!

What’s your go-to colorful palette? Natasha Denona Safari, Coloured Raine Safari Raine, Sugarpill Fun Size.

Do you prefer palettes or singles? Palettes. I find singles overwhelming and I’m not great at coming up with color stories with the thousands of options out there. I’d much rather be able to choose a few shades from a palette that’s been curated for me. Plus, palettes tend to be more cost effective,

What’s your go-to neutral palette? Lately – as in since December – it’s been the Textured Neutrals palette by Tati Beauty. It’s really a nice palette and covers everything I ever want out of a neutral eye. I try to use other neutral palettes but I can’t seem to break my love affair with this one.

What’s your go-to colorful palette? Well, I recently ordered the Natasha Denona Tropic palette because it was on sale and I marked it down further by using my Sephora coupon. I really like it as well, and I’ve been using it for my colorful looks as of late. My Sugarpill 12-pan custom palette is also a good go-to for colorful looks as I built it with every vibrant shade of the rainbow. I can count on both to be of good quality.

Do you prefer palettes or singles? Palettes, without a doubt. They’re just easier for me to store. With singles I feel obligated to buy those magnetic palettes and I have so many palettes already.

“Your skin tone/coloring: Pale as the newly fallen snow and just as jarring to the senses.” I can relate to this far too well.

I’m not a very “colourful” palette person (hence my reaction to that new Norvina one coming down the pipes) so probably UD’s BOS 3 (an oldie) or Vice 3. That’s “colourful” for me – a palette with some decent neutrals and a few more colourful shadows thrown in for fun.
