This Palette Ticks Off *Every* Make-Up Trend

When it comes to buying make-up most of us go through that inevitable argument with our conscience, “can I really justify spending £25 on a lipstick… Do I *really* need another neutral eyeshadow palette… Surely THIS foundation will be my perfect match…” It’s fair to say buying new make-up comes with a whole whirlwind of emotional guilt (teamed with a lot fun, obvs).

But each season MAC set about simplifying make-up trends, so we don’t have to walk out with half the products on their counter, just to create this season’s version of a cool smoky eye. That’s where their Trend Forecast Palette, £35, comes in. The handy little palette contains 6 shades that the beauty brains at MAC (aka, the ultimate trendsetting artists), have deemed THE colours of the season. The cream formulas can be used across eyes, lips and cheeks, and can be mixed together to create different colours, so it’s really all you need this season. We’ve already thought up 17 ways to wear this wonder palette, here are our favourites…

We’re LOVING khaki liner this season using the shade ‘About to sprout’, while cool copper eyes are guarenteed to be a winner, all year round. Mix the mustard shade (Back in the swing) with brown (A new brew) to create the perfect colour.

MAC Trend Forecast Palette, £35


Use a stippling brush with a little of the brown cream colour (A New Brew) to buff over cheeks for an instant bronze boost. While the lilac-pink ‘The In Thing’ shade is perfect for creating a candy-cool pout.

Ditch your boring black flick and create a hazelnut liner by mixing a little of the brown (A New Brew) with khaki green (About To Sprout). Blend a little of berry shade (Coming Into Season) toward the outer corners and into the crease of your eyes to cheat a red-russet finish.
