Must Have Eye Shadow Palettes
Let me begin with the basics. In order to create a great eye you should have at least 3 colors to blend together. Eye shadow palettes are amazing for this reason. Usually created in themes, palette collections usually theme their choices into a complimentary pattern that you will be able to create several looks out of. I have lately began a love affair with 2 palettes that I now cannot live my life without. Here we go!
The Urban Decay “Naked” Palette is almost everything I look for. Its only downfall would be the lack of matte colors, in which it only has 2. This is an amazing palette for creating many different looks, from fresh and natural to the fullest of the smokey eye. My favorite look right now is a little Virgin over the whole eye, accented with Naked along the crease, add some Toasted in the crease for boosting shine, and a little Hustle on the outer edge. All blended, it is great for day or night.
Stila’s “Happily Ever After Palette” is one I am using every day. The colors in the photo above actually do it NO justice, so let me break it down a bit. The colors of the palette start with Bliss (matte ivory), Kitten (vanilla shimmer), Veil (grey/taupe shimmer), Beauty (matte fawn brown), Twinkle (deep blackberry), and Forever (shimmer lilac). These colors are a genius combination for a shimmering OR matte look, or combo of both! Now, I have not hit on the bonus features of this palette. On the right hand side we have a lipstick (and cheek combo) in the color Love and a Lip gloss in The Kiss. Both compliment the shadows so incredibly well, creating a romantic and bohemian overall look. That’s not all. Slide a drawer out from underneath and you will find an extra boost for your face! Cheek color in Flush and a Bronzer. Literally, this palette has all bases covered and will be your one stop to creating a look without having to go buy several products to clutter up your drawers.
