The Best Single Eye Shadows for When One Shade Is Enough

Don't get us wrong—we love a good eye shadow palette, but sometimes you end up spending £40 on a palette only to use the same two or three shades over and over again. Then there's the space that palettes inevitably take up. If you travel a lot tend to do your makeup on the go, big and bulky palettes aren't ideal.

This is where the humble single eye shadow comes into play. Sometimes we tend to forget just how great these little guys are. They're dinky enough to be carried around in even the tiniest of clutch bags, and it's such a satisfying feeling when you completely finish an eye shadow right down to the pan.

But if you're going to put all your money into one single eye shadow, you need to make sure it's the best out there. That's where we come in. We've tried and tested the best single eye shadows for you, so you know you won't be disappointed.
