Move over boring browns, some of the latest and best eyeshadow palettes for asian skin this year have tonnes of fun colours

It’s no hidden fact that the warmer your skin tone, the wider the range of colour palettes you can wear. But as an Asian you probably gravitate towards earthy tones such as browns, olives and yellow.

They are perhaps ‘safe’ and ‘convenient’ and something you can always fall back upon. However, there is a plethora of colours you haven’t tried yet and don’t believe would work on you.

But guess what, we are here to bust that myth.

We bring to you some of the best eyeshadow palettes for Asian skin that you wouldn’t normally pick up at the store. And will now.

1. TOO FACED | Life's A Festival Eye Shadow Palette (Limited Edition) | S$59

This palette has something for everybody. You get your warm toned browns and golds as well as greens and pinks that you’d probably steer away from.

This is certainly an experimental palette and if you’re game you can create some fabulous looks with it and we definitely recommend it.

4. SEPHORA COLLECTION | Colourful Eyeshadow| S$17
