I have had quite a few friends come to me recently and ask me about my favorite eyeshadow palettes so I decided to share with you all!
For my everyday look: Tarte palettes
I love to use Tarte for my everyday look because they are so quick and easy to use! Between going to work two days a week and starting to get ready for class at the last possible second, I like to go with a very quick and simple look. The main reason why I like these palettes is because I hardly have to spend anytime blending; I am so impatient when it comes to blending so using Tarte while I’m crunched for time really cuts time out of my routine. I am so sorry that I do not have the exact links to these palettes! I got them awhile ago but I have links to similar ones 🙂
For going out and more “glam” looks: Urban Decay Gwen Stefani Eyeshadow Palette and Urban Decay Naked Smoky Palette
Like [almost] every college student, I like to go out with my friends and have a good time too! So for the nights that I have more time to get ready or just want to look a bit more “glam” I turn to this palette. I like this palette because it has a lot of fun colors to play with but also some more “safe” colors. I use this when a do a smokey eye with a pop of gold or blue. The lighter colors are also really good to use in the corner of your eye to make your eyes really pop. Unfortunately a lot of places no longer carry this, but I see it at Nordstrom Rack all the time!!
I have already posted about the Smoky palette but I just wanted to stress how great it is! I just gifted a few of these to some friends for Christmas who are just starting to get into makeup and they love them! There is enough variety in it so you don’t have to always do a dramatic eye if you don’t want to. It also has colors that go with every eye color, so you don’t have to worry about it not working out for you.
So there are my go-to palettes! Please continue to reach out to me with any questions you might have!
