To celebrate the launch of the Michelle Fox palette, we have not one but TWO palettes to give away to one lucky Irish Tatler reader.
Mourning the end of summer might be one of our favourite pre-fall activities — RIP rooftop Fridays and BBQ filled weekends — but it's important not to forget all the things we're getting as the air crisps.
For one, we can celebrate our makeup staying in place for the first time in months, which means it's an appropriate time to dust off our eyeshadow brushes and smoky palettes for the first time in months.
Yet, eyeshadow palettes can be tricky. It's a bit like Forrest Gump's box of chocolates - you really never know what you're going to get and there's almost always one shade that you never touch. It's totally cool, I understand. I've spent money on popular palettes only to realize they were a total waste of money because I'm not using half the shades available.

When it comes to eye shadow palettes for Autumn, I try to find a mostly neutral palette with pops of signature fall colours like orange, gold, and brown. Warm shades look beautiful with whatever sweater or scarf I choose to rock, and gold and red hues are my go-to when elevating a look. However, the biggest challenge is finding a palette that compliments your skin tone, isn't sold out, and has enough colours to justify the cash you spend. Cue Michelle Fox.

Last week the Irish makeup artist released an eyeshadow palette in collaboration with Fuschia and - if I do say so myself - it's the perfect autumnal palette.
Out of the 12 eyeshadow colours, there isn't a single shade I've yet to use as they are all surprisingly wearable. The pans are a generous size, the names make me laugh (Brown Sugar - nice The Rolling Stones reference and Mahogs, which is such an Irish thing) and there isn't a single shade I couldn't use alone, together or in conjunction with any other eye palette you have in my collection.
Currently, I'm wearing an eye made up of Creme Brûlée, Salted Caramel, Warm Up, Mahogs and with a touch of 24K Gold in my tear ducts and I've received five compliments so far today.
Further proving that it's the only palette that should ever grace my makeup bag again, there's also a contour shade, one peach blush and one highlighter shade. The palette is sturdy but light and comes with a giant mirror making it the ultimate palette for women on the go.
But you don't have to take my word for it, to celebrate the launch of the Michelle Fox X Fuschia palette, we have not one but TWO Michelle Fox palettes to give away to one lucky reader for them and a friend.
