    May 2014 Business Issue: Trust Me

When it comes to eyeshadow palettes, four is the magic number. If you invest in the eyeshadow foursome that suits you best, the handy compact will quickly become your new best friend. Convenient, money saving and gorgeously packaged, the right eyeshadow palette allows you to achieve a variety of effects, such as the classic smokey eye, or try out this season's hot trend for the technicolor eye.

There's more to shadows than just the colours in your quad and picking the one you need is the first point of call before you go palette shopping. If your lids are greasy, you should look for a crease-less formula. If you have trouble mixing the right colours then one containing fine powders will make less work for you and your brush. If building intense colour is your conundrum, make sure you pick a product that's heavily pigmented.

Once you've decided which type you are after, you can consider the look you want to achieve. The beauty of shadow quads is that they give you an entire eye make-up look in one perfectly packaged square. The shades are carefully selected to not only go well together but to enhance each colour with the next. As a general rule, you should try to keep the lighter hues towards the inner corners of your eyes and gradually apply the darker shades as you work your way towards the outer corners.

Whether you'd like to inject some new shades into your current eye shadow collection, or find a more bendable formula, these are some of the market favourites.

L'Oréal Paris Studio Secrets Colour Smokes Eyeshadow is one of the most long-wearing products available. This formula promises to keep your smoky eye intact for hours without so much as a smudge and the Blackened Smokes palette is ideal for producing a sultry and sexy look.

Lancôme Paris Sensational Effects Eye Shadow Quad in Mademoiselle Chic contains four super blendable shades of violets and purples that are perfect for the remainder of the winter months. The formulation of these hues includes light, finely milled powder, making them super easy to work with.

Dolce & Gabbana The Eyeshadow Smooth Eye Colour Quad in Elegance is a designer treat of mixed textures that is packaged to perfection. This palette gives you a wide range of textures from matte and metallic, to satin and pearl shadows, so you can create your own custom mix.

Givenchy Le Prisme Eyeshadow Quartet in Pastel Model is the perfect travel-friendly palette for the girl on the go. This foursome, made of incredibly designed prismatic shadows, comes with two sponge applicators and a mini brush, making it easy to use all the palette shades at once without needing to fuss with brush changes.

Laura Mercier Baked Eye Colour Palette in Free Spirit is the newest of the bunch. It contains both spring pastel brights and more earthy copper tones so you can mix up a day to night look in an instant while also staying on trend.
