My Favorite Eyeshadow Palettes + Gift Guide Collaboration

My Favorite Eyeshadow Palettes + Gift Guide Collaboration

A few days ago my twitter friend Kyshira hit me up to do a favorite palette collab and nothing brings a Howard grad and a Hampton grad together like the bonding of makeup. While I’m not *that* much of an eyeshadow girl, I have fallen in love with some key palettes for when I get my nerve up. Above all else I look for quality, shades I like and can use and the most bang for my buck. And since this is the season, this will also double a gift guide. So no matter your budget, my favorites has you covered this holiday season and beyond.


Friendly Finds

Morphe 35F Fall Into Frost Palette, $22.99

Morphe palettes are IG classics. They are very budget friendly items without looking or feeling cheap. And they come in a ton of color combinations. Personally, I lean toward the frosted palette because duh warm, metallic shadows.


Makeup Revolution Fortune Favors the Brave Ultra 30 Eyeshadow Palette, $15.00

This is another inexpensive palette that looks a-mazing. Baked marble shades in rich jewel tones?! Yes. If nothing else, this palette is IG worthy.


BH Cosmetics Carli Bybel 14 Color Eyeshadow & Highlighter Palette, $14.50

Reviews are mixed on this one, but for $14.50 I think it worth mentioning. It has the backing of a huge YouTube star and has 10 everyday nude shades and four highlighters. That’s a win in my book.


Fancy Finds

ABH Modern Renaissance Eye Shadow Palette, $42.00

Scroll any IG makeup page and you won’t get far with seeing this palette. It’s something about the rich and diverse colors in this one that has made it a fave favorite.


The Original Naked Palette, $54

This is the first palette I owned (because go big or go home right?) and I’ve made some great looks with this. The classic is a classic for a reason. Pigmented, longlasting shades that suit a variety of people. But again there are other palettes in the Naked line. Naked 3 is popular for its rose gold shades and the smokey palette for  - well - smokey looks.

Huda Beauty Eyeshadow Palette - Rose Gold Edition, $65.00

This is my favorite palette of all. Do you see that glitter? Those shades? No wonder at the time this article was published it was sold out. (But they do restock often so check back!)
