Face Palette FAQs

What is a face palette?

A face palette is your one stop shop for all the base makeup you need. It can include everything from concealers, colour correctors, bronzers, contour, blusher and highlighter. Whether you want a compact kit with a few everyday shades or a mega face palette with every product you could ever need, there's something to suit every routine. Face palettes are perfect for travelling as you have all your face makeup in one handy t case, often including a mirror and sometimes a makeup brush.

Find your new favourite palettes here at Cosmetify, with a range of luxury and affordable goodies for you to choose from.

How do you use a face palette?

This all depends on the colours, shades and formats. The beauty of a face palette is that it's a versatile option with a range of colours to work with, so don't be afraid to blend shades together to find your perfect hue.

If the palette includes concealers and colour correctors, apply these first with a soft concealer brush. Use these formulas on any areas with redness, blemishes or uneven skin tone. Then with the contour or bronzing shades, buff them into the skin with a fluffy angled brush on the cheekbones, around the forehead and across the jawline. Blusher shades should then be swirled across the apples of the cheeks and the aluminising highlighter colours should be applied to the tops of the cheekbones, down the bridge of the nose and on the cupids bow.

How do I choose a face makeup palette?

When it comes to finding the perfect fit, we recommend finding a face makeup palette that suits your skin tone, skin type and your style. At Cosmetify, we have an inclusive range of face palettes to suit every routine and every skin tone.

For dry skin, try searching for cream face makeup palettes, whereas oily skin should opt for powder formulas. Also refine your search by makeup concern to find a face palette that suits your needs completely. For example, if you struggle with redness, makeup palettes that include colour correctors can help minimise any unwanted tones. Or, if you want to combat any dullness in your complexion, choose a face palette that includes gorgeous, glowy highlighters.
