You can never go wrong with a neutral eye-shadow palette. Your makeup look can be easily transformed from a natural day look to a bold evening look. Each neutral palette suits all skin complexions. Here are 10 of our favorites at the moment.
1. Smashbox “Shape Matters Palette” - $65
A palette that features eye shadows, eyebrow powders, contour/highlight and a wax to keep your brows in place. It is the ultimate neutral palette all in one, whether you are a professional makeup artist or just a makeup lover.
2. Marc Jacobs “Style Eye-Con No.7” #The Lover- $59
This palette is the latest from Marc Jacob’s makeup collection. The creamy nude shadows are every bit as stylish as they look.
Estee Lauder, Bronze Goddess ‘’Shimmering Nudes Palette’’ - $55
Estee Lauder has really stepped up the quality of its eye-shadow palettes lately. This palette contains five daring nude shades and three highly pigmented metallics. At first glance the nudes appear a little bland, but layer with a swipe of one of the shimmery highlight shades, and boring is the last word that comes to mind.
Urban Decay “Naked Palette 2”- $54
This palette will always remain a classic among neutral palettes. It features all the shades and formulas you will possibly need. The palette is packed with 12 gorgeous neutrals, ranging from a soft champagne to a barely-there bronze.
Bobbi Brown “Rich Caramel Eye Palette”- $49
If you are more of a toned-down kind of person when it comes to makeup, this palette by Bobbi Brown is definitely worth a try. This sheer palette contains warm cream, caramel and brown shadows in matt, shimmer and sparkle finishes. It also works great for a day or night look.
Lorac “Unzipped Palette” - $42
The colors are almost too gorgeous to use. These 10 gleaming shadows give the prettiest subtle sparkle. Apply them individually, or blend them for a golden glow.
Urban Decay, “Naked Basics” - $27
Urban Decay knows how to create the best neutral palettes. The name of this travel-friendly palette says it all.
Too Faced, Natural Eye Neutral Palette - $36
A great thing about this palette is that there are recommended color combinations, but all the shades will still play well together. Having larger pans of the shades you are likely to use up first is a big bonus. The packaging is playful and quirky, which makes it a cute accessory.
Stila, “Eyes Are The Window Shadow Palette” - $49
To celebrate Stila’s 20th birthday, the brand has released four eye-shadow palettes. This one features all the neutral shades you need. It is very similar to Urban Decay’s Naked 2 palette, just with less shades. It is a great light-weight palette for travel, and the shades are highly pigmented.
Tarte, Down to Earth - $44
The deep plum shade seems out of place alongside the family of beige- and brown-toned neutrals, but surprisingly it is the most beautiful complement. These complementary shades can be mixed and matched for a range of sweet-to-sultry eye looks.
