In the unlikely event you’ve felt that your neutral eye shadow stash is rather scanty, here’s the answer! The Freedom Pro Artist Pad Black Arts Edition has 48 (yes!) shades all built to look a little like an iPad – so you flip it open to reveal the colours and an integral mirror.

There is pretty much nothing neutral that isn’t covered off in this – I love the fact that it’s slim and fits very nicely in my makeup drawer. As you can see it’s a mix of mattes and shimmers but unusually, the shade selection is good for warm and cool tones – there are warmer browns and cooler greys. Freedom is pitched as an affordable ‘pro’ range, so it makes perfect sense that one multi-shade palette covers many tones. At £15, I think this is very good value, especially if you love to dabble with colour and be experimental with neutral shades. I think it’s the only way to really understand neutrals (I am the biggest complainer that all nude palettes look the same, but the Pro Artist Pad, I think, allows you to really get to grips with nuance which I guess is something very much required of make up artists). Anyway, kit or stash, I’m a big fan of this. You can find it HERE.

Quality wise, Freedom is from the same beauty stable as Makeup Revolution, so they’re soft and blendable with plenty of pay-off.
