5 Must Have Eyeshadow Palettes

January 6, 2017

I often get asked by family members and friends what eyeshadow palettes I recommend the most — and well, that’s very tricky for me, because I am obsessed LOVE makeup and I could go on and on about which palettes I like best. So, I go to thinking about my crazy collection and if I had to narrow it down to 5 palettes, which ones would I keep and why. It was much harder than I thought!

I think 5 eyeshadow palettes is a reasonable amount of eyeshadows for a person who likes makeup, likes to experiment with different looks, and likes a bit of variety. So let’s get into the palettes I recommend! 

Kat Von D Shade + Light Eyeshadow Palette 

Not only is this palette packed with neutral matte eyeshadows, but it’s also one of the best eyeshadow formulas I have tired. This palette can easily take you from day to night. 

Lorac Unzipped Palette 

This palette is great alone, but I prefer to use it alongside other eyeshadow palettes — it’s full of rose toned eyeshadows — which I think look amazing on all skin tones. 

Tarte Tarteltte In Bloom 

This palette is perfect for beginners and advanced makeup artists — you can follow the rows horizontally to create an easy eye look or you can play around with all of the other rows. It has a great selection of warm, cool, and rose toned shades. (Speaking of beginners, these are the best eyeshadow palettes for beginners!)

Anastasia Modern Renaissance Palette 

This palette brings more color to the table, but nothing that is over the top. Just like the Lorac palette mentioned earlier, this matches up really well with other palettes. The deeper burgundy shades are stunning and it also includes beautiful warm colors. 

Urban Decay Naked 2 Palette 

All of the other palettes are pretty neutral or warm toned — although not many people are fans of cool toned eyeshadows, I think it’s nice to have a good quality palette that gives you that option. The metallic shadows in this palette are out of this world!  

As you can see, most of these are oldies, but goodies! 

Hopefully this list can help some of you out next time you are out shopping for your next eyeshadow palette.
