If you’ve ever been flummoxed by the insane amount of eyeshadow colors out there, then we suggest you try out a palette. Check out our favorites below for the upcoming fall season.
We love the fall. Back to school, changing leaves, and pumpkin spice everything. But unfortunately, between school and work, it can be one of the busiest times of the year. And with such little time to spare, why waste another second trying to figure out which eyeshadows go together when you put on your makeup in the morning? With palettes, we get perfect combinations of colors and a whole extra minute to sleep in on a chilly fall morning. Check out all our favorites and SHOP in the gallery.
Best Neutral Palettes
Ain’t no shame if you’re on your neutral-eye game, ladies. A neutral eye is the perfect daytime look that can transition perfectly into a smokey eye before heading out for the night. For those who want a super basic, but still super pretty eye, we suggest Sonia Kashuk Eyeshadow Quad. It features four peachy-neutral shades from matte to full-on glitter. If you’re looking for a bit more color, try Colorescience Mineral Eyeshadow Quad Palette in Royal Purple. This cool-toned palette features shades of grey to deep purple and looks especially amazing with green eyes.
If you’re still a little unsure about your makeup application skills, then use Revlon Photoready, Primer, Shadow + Sparkle. This clever little compact has shadow in the shape of an eye to show you exactly where to place it. Plus, it contains a primer and highlight shade. For those who are makeup experts or just daring, try Anastasia Catwalk Eyeshadow Palette — it has 10 shades of perfect neutrals.
Brights & More
Sure, neutrals are the backbone of the cosmetics industry, but every now and then we find ourselves wanting a little more flash and excitement. For those times, we love Too Faced Pretty Rebel Eyeshadow Palette because while it has lots of brights, it still has a few neutrals that make blending a breeze. We also love Sonia Kashuk Instructional Eye Palette-Eye on Pure Color. This palette packs in the colors, as well as some glitter, so you can create any look you want.
Pacifica Solar Palette is fantastic because it has lots of colors, but isn’t so intensely pigmented that they look cartoonish — you can build the color to your desired intensity. And finally, for those makeup pros, we suggest SEPHORA+PANTONE UNIVERSE Elemental Energy Eye Shadow Palette because it has 16 amazingly different shades.
