08 Aug Meet the Basics by B Face Palette: Your New Go-To Makeup Palette
Creating a face and eye palette that is versatile, filled only with colour you actually use and that suits every skin tone, eye colour, hair colour and age is no small feat. However, it’s been done! Meet the Face Palette from Basics by B.
If you struggle to break yourself out of your standard routine, this palette is for you! It’s filled with multipurpose, fun and eye-catching colours that are all extremely wearable. You can create soft and diffused looks, edgy and bold looks or anything in between simply by changing up your colour combinations and the density you apply the pigments in.
If you’re travelling overseas, this palette will fit perfectly in your carry on (and have you seen how big the mirror is!). No need to take your entire drawer of beauty products. It’s also great for women who want to simplify their morning routine with every shade they need to create a whole range of different looks in the palm of their hand.
As for the formulas, they’re super buttery and densely pigmented so a little goes a long way. You don’t need to be a pro to get the perfect buff and blend with these shadows. The colours last on your face all day and there’s no annoying fall off with the eyeshadows.
Hot tip: For a denser colour, use your finger and press the shadow into your eyelid. If you’re going for a softer look, you can slowly build colour by gently blending with a flat, fluffy eyeshadow brush.
The Face and Eye Shades
Ibiza is a soft yet sparkling illuminate that offers a glow and a touch of rosiness without making you look glittery. It’s everything you want in a highlighter and more. It has a subtle rose gold fleck in it and goes on smoothly for easy blending. It’s best for adding a touch of light to the high points of your face such as cheekbones, brow bones, cupids bow and also the inner corners of your eyes.
Santorini is a peachy coral tone blush with a touch of pink undertone and has a matte finish. It has fairly neutral undertones so works as a lovely pop of colour on the apples of the cheek for both warm and cool toned girls. It’s nicely pigmented so a little goes a long way and you can easily blend it out for a natural looking flush.
Crete is your new go-to bronzer and eye shadow base. The versatile matte shade is warm enough to suit all complexions but not so warm you risk looking too orange or too tan like with many other bronzers. Despite being a matte shade, it still has a velvety finish that gives you a natural looking radiance. It’s perfect for under the cheekbones, across your forehead and as an everyday eyeshadow colour. If you pop a light dusting on the bridge of your nose you can fake having spent a day in the sun.
Demelza Wears ‘Crete’ as bronzer and on the eyes to contour the socket line. She also wears ‘Ibiza’ on the eyelids and on the cheekbones as a highlight, with ‘Santorini’ blush on top.
Cannes is a beautifully metallic dusty pink colour with a touch of rose gold that is reminiscent of a Mediterranean sunset. Unlike your traditional glittery metallics, the metallic shades in this palette are finely milled for a diffused and radiant shine. Whether you’re wanting a rosy and fresh daytime look or are creating a deeper eye for the night time, this shade is must.
St Tropez is a golden metallic apricot shade with a luminous finish. While it may look a little out of your comfort zone at first, the colour is deceptively soft and is great for giving the lid of your eyes a little pop. Similar to the other metallic shades, it’s more of a radiant metallic than a glittery sparkle so you don’t have to worry about looking disco. You can add a light sweep for a bit of glow or use your finger to build the golden colour.
Palma is the metallic plum shade of your dreams. Sitting beautifully between a deep pink and smoky purple with a hint of copper, it delivers a pop of elegant colour to your lids. You can use it as an all over shade by diffusing it with a soft and fluffy shadow brush or use it to highlight your lids by densely swiping the colour on the lower part of your lids. If you dare, it also makes a gorgeous finish over a nude lipstick to give you that 90’s metallic lip look that’s everywhere right now.

Tuscany is a matte terracotta brown shade with warm undertones. Thanks to the buttery finish of the eyeshadow formulas, you can easily blend out the shade for a softer colour or use it all over your lid for an on trend monotonal look. It brings warmth to the eyes and can even help to neutralise dark shadows under your eyes thanks to the subtle touch of red that makes it a terracotta.
Sicily is a universal true brown shade that has a matte finish and neutral undertones. Like all of the shades in the palette, it suits every skin tone and eye colour making it the perfect neutral to bring definition and a little weight to your look. You can use it define your lash line in place of eyeliner or deepen your crease. For something different, blend it into your outer corner for a diffused smoky eye that is bold yet Summery.
Jaimee wears ‘Cannes’ and ‘Sicily’ on the eyes and ‘Crete’, ‘Santorini’ and ‘Ibiza’ on the cheeks.
