Staying home 24/7 has really gotten to us, to the point where we’re starting to see the life getting sucked out of our complexion. But lucky for us, face palettes have come in really handy these past few months to bring the glow back in a snap, even for just a little while. From emphasising our facial structure to adding colour to our cheeks in a matter of minutes, they’ve landed a special place in our hearts and makeup kits during this lockdown.

Now with seasons shifting, we’re seeing some of the most exciting summer face palettes launching in the market with colours that would simply elevate our WFH looks while making us feel like we’re on a much-needed beach getaway! That said, we thought we’d list down some of our favourite ones for the ultimate must-haves you need that’ll leave you looking sculpted, radiant and beaming – even if you’re going nowhere. Check them out below:

1. Anastasia Beverly Hills All-In-One Face Palette

No doubt, we’re all dreaming of a summer vacay right now and Anastasia Beverly Hills is giving it to us with two holiday-inspired palettes, namely ‘Italian Summer’ and ‘Off To Costa Rica’! Featuring highly-pigmented shades that come in the form of a bronzer, blusher and highlighter with just the right amount of sparkle, these palettes are all you need for a summer glow when you can’t get one naturally. Plus point: the compact packaging and wide mirror allow for on-the-go touch-ups whenever you need them!

2. Benefit Fouroscope Earth Angel Cheek Palette

We love it when brands incorporate horoscopes into their products just like how Benefit has with its ‘Fouroscope Cheek Palettes’! Building around three astrological elements – earth, fire and air (sorry water signs!), we’re specifically spotlighting the ‘Earth Angel Palette’ as it features an exclusive and brand-new shade called ‘Honey Moon’ – a warm, natural pink that’s perfect to swipe on for an everyday look. Accompanying this are three other iconic shades – ‘Cookie’, ‘Hoola’ and ‘Georgia’ that’ll have you looking like a glowy earth goddess!

3. Burberry Beauty Essential Glow Face Palette

Distinctively Burberry from the casing right down to the shades and fabric-like textured pans, this gorgeous palette boasts five satin-finish powders – a pair of blushers and highlighters plus a bronzer – and a buildable cream formula for sculpting. While we don’t usually see the latter in most of the face palettes that we come across, the creamy texture actually works great to give off a naturally sculpted look, especially when used under a foundation. The best part about this palette is how versatile it is thanks to the array of available shades, and it comes in two variants – ‘01 Light Harmony’ and ‘02 Dark Harmony’. From creating multiple looks to match your moods to adding dimension to your face and eyes, this palette is definitely worth every penny!

4. Dior Backstage Glow Face Palette in 002 Glitz

The Dior Backstage Glow Face Palette has been one of our all-time favourites ever since it was launched three years ago. Coming in warmer shades, ‘002 Glitz’ features a light, shimmery bronze for soft sculpting, a soft peach blush and two glitter highlighters in gold and pink to delicately capture and bounce the light off your cheekbones. What we love about this palette is how easily it transfers on the skin, how buildable the formula is and how well it works to create a natural, ethereal glow!

5. Givenchy Prisme Libre Blush

While this isn’t your usual face palette, the Givenchy Prisme Libre Blush comes in the form of loose powder blushers in one compact little box – and four variants at that! Formulated with a matte finish, the four shades in the case range from soft to intense to create one gorgeous cheek colour. Equipped with a powder puff, simply give the box a gentle shake and blend all four colours onto your cheeks. For a subtler look, swirl a fluffy brush to pick up the loose powders and blend it to your heart’s desire!

6. Nars On The Beach Cheek Palette

The all-new face palette from Nars takes inspiration from its iconic ‘Orgasm’ blusher with five other complementing shades that easily allow you to colour, highlight and sculpt for a perfectly sunkissed look! Packed in a luxurious palette with a huge mirror, ‘On The Beach’ Cheek Palette includes a mix of shimmery and satin-finished powders that have been formulated with translucent micro-spheres. Highly pigmented yet easily blendable, the powders create a dewy and natural flush even with the slightest amount!

7. Sephora Collection Gleaming Stones Face Palette

Wallet- and beginner-friendly, Sephora Collection’s ‘Gleaming Stones Face Palette’ is great for everyday makeup. With two options available – ‘Pure Stones’ for a warm, earthy look and ‘Pink Minerals’ that features nude to coral shades, the pressed powders blend easily with one another and provide a natural finish – perfect for our WFH meetings! With pigmented blushers and subtle bronzers, the powders have a buildable and blendable formula (a combo we love!) that lets you quickly correct any mishaps, should you encounter any.
