Favorite Eyeshadow Palettes

I've got a roundup of my favorite eyeshadow palettes today -- I use these four palettes on the regular and love the hues! I have blue eyes and feel like these work really well for both my eye and skin color.


1. Naked Ultimate Basics // Urban Decay
Hands-down, this is my favorite palette! I love the collection of matte eyeshadows and it's so perfect for creating an everyday look. I tend to lean towards the browns in this collection, but once in awhile will add in the plum-colored hues for a pop of color! Also, this one is currently on sale for 50% off!

2. Naked2 // Urban Decay
This was my first Urban Decay palette and I purchased it using birthday money many years ago. I used to use this one daily, but then after trying the Naked Basics palette (listed below), I realized that I tend to lean more towards matte eyeshadows rather than shimmery ones. This one is great for special occasion makeup -- I love using it for holidays and events since all of the colors have a pretty sheen to them! 

3. Naked Basics // Urban Decay
This is the PERFECT mini palette for tossing in your purse, gym bag, or carry-on! These matte neutrals can be mixed and matched for an easy every day look or for a dramatic smokey eye. 

4. Warm Neutral Palette // MAC
This palette was recommended to me a few years ago when I scheduled a makeup consult at the MAC store at the Mall of America. I was a little hesitant about all of the rosy hues, but I ended up using those up way faster than the browns and golds! Will definitely purchase this one again in the near future since my favorite colors are almost all used up.

Also, I love to use this eyeshadow primer before applying any eyeshadows -- it keeps things crease-free all day, even in the summer humidity!

P.S. Old Navy's athletic wear is currently 50% off (ends today). I scooped up a pair of these shorts (in black), this tank (in seafoam and and in black), and this tank (in both pocket full of posy  and winter plum).
