19 Aug Top 3 Eye Shadow Palettes
With the amount of makeup brands out there it can be hard to choose one over the other. When it comes to makeup kits, my rules are that they have to be 1) pigmented & 2) affordable.
Below is a list of my top 3 essential eye shadow palettes.
Palettes are great because you can go from day time to night time using a single palette. It’s also a lot easier than carrying around 5 or more shadows in your makeup bag. We already have enough in our bags. Why not make our lives a bit easier right?
NAKED BASICS by Urban Decay –This palette is probably my favorite. Great if you like more of a matte look. With 6 colors it may seem small but this palette packs a lot of punch. Because of the neutral tones it makes it the perfect palette to wear alone or to incorporate into another.
NATURAL EYE by Too Faced– This palette is packed with 9 beautiful eye shadows. I love this one because of the rich pigments and how creamy they feel. “Honey Pot” and “Chocolate Martini” are a favorite combo of mine if you are looking for something softer. Pair that with a bold black liner and Red lips and you are ready for a night out!
NAKED 3 by Urban Decay– (this one is more of a splurge but VERY worth it!) This beautifully colored palette of soft pinks, brows and plums are the perfect combo for any girly girl. It has just the right amount of sparkle to wear for a day look and i love using the darker colors as eyeliner for a softer smoked out look.
As always, the best way to make your makeup last is to start with a good base.
My go-to eye shadow primer is PAINTERLY by MAC COSMETICS. Applied with a firm brush or your fingers, it goes on creamy and sets firm. Out of experience I’ve had my eye shadow last over 9 hours using this product!
