I probably have an unhealthy obsession with eyeshadow palettes. I own more eyeshadow palettes than any other category of makeup. That being said, these are the ones I reach for the most. I don't wear eyeshadow on a daily basis simply because I'm a college student who works from home and only leaves my house twice every week. So when I'm not wearing makeup, I'm just wearing brows and mascara. When I go to church, or on the rare occasion that I actually go out for fun, these are my most-reached-for, go-to eyeshadow palettes.
- Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance Palette | This has to be my MOST reached for palette ever. My sidekick. My travel buddy. It has mostly red-tone based shadows, which is amazing for all eye colors but makes blue and green eyes pop. In addition to the beautiful red shades, this palette also has neutral, everyday-wear shades. All of these colors combined into a single beautiful palette. It's a dream come true. The shadows are very pigmented and soft so if you dip your brush into them too harshly, the powder will in fact go everywhere. So just keep that in mind when using this palette!

- Jaclyn Hill Morphe Palette | This palette is absolutely BRILLIANT in every way. It's fun, it's simple, it's glamorous. It's literally has every shade you could possibly need if you're not a palette hoarder like I am. The shadows and palette are also massive, so you get a lot of product, but it makes it more difficult with to travel. The formula in Morphe eyeshadows is absolutely amazing, they're super easy to blend out and the quality of them is unreal. I HIGHLY recommend this product.
- Price | $38.00
- Too Faced Chocolate Bar Palette | Not a fan of all the red shades? Do crazy colors scare you away from buying eyeshadows? Never fret, for my long-term partner in makeup has your back. A beautiful, natural, bronze-y delicious palette. Before the Modern Renaissance Palette came out, this one was my favorite, most-reached-for palette. It has everything you could need for everyday eye looks, with a couple of fun shades thrown in for those of you who like to spice up your looks a bit. The palette is infused with cocoa powder and smells like chocolate, I LOVE this, but I thought it was worth mentioning for those of you who are sensitive to smells.
- Price | $49.00
- Maybelline 'The Nudes' & 'The Blushed Nudes' Palettes | My all-time favorite drugstore eyeshadow palettes! When I first started playing with makeup, these were my go-to, everyday eyeshadows. The formula is amazing for drugstore products, the lighter shades are a bit chalky and not as buttery to blend as the other shades, but I never use light shades anyway so it wasn't much of a problem for me. If you're just starting out with makeup, I suggest picking up one (or both) of these palettes!
- Price | $10.99
