Eyeshadow Palettes — The ‘No-Makeup’ Makeup Palettes
Nude eyeshadows are perfect for the “no-makeup” makeup looks, or as Beyonce calls it the “I woke up like this” look. Neutral shades are perfect for the office or school — especially if you did not get enough sleep the night before. Just swipe on the natural colors to camouflage your tired eyes.
We love the new MAYBELLINE The Nudes Expert Wear Palette, and think it is perfect for everyone. No matter what color eyes you have, get ready for them to be enhanced with these 12 neutral, shimmering shades!
Another favorite is the NYX Cosmetics Dream Catcher Palette. The palette contains 10 gorgeous neutral shades that you can mix and match however you please. This palette is also perfect for every eye color and skin tone.
Nudes shadows can be worn discreetly during the day, and then amplified with a darker application at night.
Neutral colors can be too boring for some people. A way to make your eyes fun is to add a bright color to your look. A great palette to use is the Too Faced COUNTRY. This is another favorite because, not only did Too Faced create beautiful shades, they also included a Glamour Guide that shows you three beauty looks to start you off so you can create looks your best looks. “Bluebird” has to be the prettiest blue eyeshadow we have seen yet!
One color not enough for you? If color is your thing, we love Lancôme Color Design Eye Brightening All-In-One 5 Shadow & Liner Palette. The gorgeous purple shades create a dramatic full eye look — for day or night!
Palettes For the Sexy Smokey Eye
Dark smokey eyes are a perfect way to spice up your night. Dark eyeshadows are best to use at night because they can make a statement in harsh club lighting, whereas neutrals will get lost. Smokey eyes are very dramatic and can turn any innocent look into a sultry, sexy look.
Drew Barrymore made it easy with her FLOWER Shadow Play Eye Shadow Quad. The palette includes 4 shades, one white, two grays, and one black. These colors blend together perfectly, and can create a beautiful smokey ombre effect around the eyes.
Of course, we have to mention another Too Faced palette, because they make makeup application so much easier with their Glam Guide. If you are new to smokey eyes, Too Faced SMOKEY EYE palette will be great for you. The palette is broken up into 3 sections; day, classic, and fashion.
So which palette is your favorite, HollywoodLifers?
