Pack a hol lot of make-up; Palettes are a great way to safely pack all those essentials.


KNOWING what make-up to pack for a holiday is a tricky business.

There is the worry of some items breaking and covering the rest of your luggage in powder.

Also, all that stuff is heavy and no one wants to have to pay for excess baggage.

We can't solve all these issues but one way to take the hassle out of packing for a summer trip is with a make-up palette.

With a range of brands now offering customisable trays, you can create your perfect holiday kit, or choose from the season's coolest new edits for eyes and cheeks.

Here's our pick of the best space-savers for summer Benecos It Pieces Refillable Makeup Palette in Freaking Hot, PS26.45, Pravera With the new It Pieces collection from affordable eco brand Benecos, you start with an empty palette (PS5.65) then fill it with refills, choosing from pressed powder, contour, blush, highlighter, bronzer and eyeshadow. Can't decide what to go for? There are also two pre-filled palettes, the warm-toned Freaking Hot and cool-toned Pretty Cold.

Tropic Colour Palette with five trays, PS68 Tropic's travel-friendly palette lets you slot up to seven pans from a choice of 13 different products, including concealer, brow gel, highlighter and eyeshadow, with prices starting from PS8. The magnetic pans snap into place, so there's no danger of them being dislodged, plus it comes with a big mirror for easy on-the-go touch-ups.

Revolution Pro Colour Focus Palette in Black Earth & Stone, PS12 All of Revolution's eyeshadow palettes come with round pans that snap in and out, so you can tailor the selection to suit your trip. The gorgeous metallic and pinky hues of the new Earth & Stone palette are ideal for a romantic Mediterranean getaway but you might want to swap in some brighter shades if you're heading for a week of partying in Ibiza with your girl gang.

Make Beauty Nude Palette, PS32, Net-a-Porter An expert-does-it-all edit from NYC-based brand Make, the Nude Palette features eight great shadows in neutral tones (half matte, half shimmering) plus a pair of sheer cream colours in pink and coral, that can be used on your lips or cheeks.

Guerlain Terracotta Contour & Glow Palette, PS45, Escentual Guerlain's bronzers are second to none and this chic compact contains everything that you need to enhance your holiday glow. The palette combines matte contour and bronzing powder with shimmering rose blush and highlighter.

Zoeva Soft Sun Voyager Eye Palette, PS15, Beauty Bay This small but perfectly formed palette from Zoeva is designed to enhance your eyes, but thanks to the pink and tan shades, the matte powders could easily double up as blush, contour or bronzer, meaning fewer products for you to pack.

Misslyn Travel Kit All In One Teint Palette, PS14.50, Beauty Bay Housed in a Parisianthemed palette, this great value quartet features bronzer, highlighter, blush and fixing powder, making it ideal for trips to humid destinations.

It's available in two shades - peachy Globetrotter for warm-toned complexions and Jetsetter for cool tones.
