A neutral eyeshadow palette is as essential to a girls makeup kit as an LBD is to her wardrobe. Today we are showing you our top picks for neutral palettes - with everything from drugstore and high-end, to vegan and even indie brands.
FOR THE DRUGSTORE LOVER
L'Oreal colour riche la palette nude ($20.00) / Wet 'n' wild trio in Walking on Eggshells ($3) / Morphe Brushes Natural Beauty Palette(£15.00) / Maybelline The Nudes Palette (£9.99) / E.L.F Studio Need it Nude Palette(£12.50) /
We all love a good drugstore bargain, they're affordable and more often that not they rival the quality of higher end brands. The Wet'N'Wild Trios are perfect for stashing in your handbag for touch-ups throughout the day, they come in a variety of colours, with 3 simple shades to highlight the brow bone, define the crease, and beautify the lid, plus they are only around $3! We also love the E.L.F palettes as they are super versatile with a range of shades and finishes in each palette you can create a plethora of looks!
FOR THE SPLURGER
Charlotte Tilbury Luxury Palette 'The Dolce Vita' (£39.00) / Tom Ford Eye Quad in 'Cocoa Mirage' ($82) / Dior Eye Reviver in '001' (£42.50) / Chanel Les 4 Ombres in 'Candeur et Experience (£42.00) /
If you're a believer in treating yo'self then take a look at these gorgeous pieces. Charlotte Tilbury are really making a name in the beauty world and we can see why with this gorgeous packaging, we also love that the compact comes with a mirror making it a god send for gals on the go. Dior have impressed again with their ultra glam Eye Reviver, the powders are pressed with Dior's signature logo and the chrome finish to the packaging is just swoon-worthy.
FOR THE VEGAN QUEEN
Carli Bybel palette ($14.50) / Kat Von D contour quad in 'Rust' ($22.00)/ Obsessive compulsive cosmetics loose colour concenrates ($15.00) / B.Defined Brow Kit (£3.00) / Illamasqua neutral palette (£34.00) /
Looking for some cruelty free beauty? We hear ya! We love that cruelty free pieces are getting more attainable nowadays and we just want to pick up all of these. Youtuber Carli Bybel created her debut palette with BH Cosmetics last year and it is filled 14 stunning shadows and highlighters which can be worked into everyday looks and even more glammed up ones. Not strictly an eyeshadow palette but we think the B. Defined brow kit would be amazing for throwing in your bag, the shades will work perfectly to define the brows as well as giving the eyes a little pop of colour.
FOR THE INDIE BRAND FAN
Milani Everyday eyes palette ($10.00) / BellaPierre XIII Go Natural palette ($50.00) / Saucebox Cosmetics Etude Palette ($50.00)/ Profusion cosmetics Pro eyes tin in 'Natural' (£7.86)/ Flower Beauty Shimmer&Shade palette in 'Warm neutral' ($16.00)/
With so many brands about how can you decide which one to go for? How about supporting an indie brand?! You'll be the first one in your squad to own a piece and could stumble across a holy grail item! The Saucebox Cosmetics Etude palette is a real go-to piece with a neutral shade for every skintone and makeup look, plus the packaging is so kitsch.
FOR THE MATTE LOVER
Makeup Revolution Flawless matte (£8.00) / E.L.F Studio mad for matte Palette (£12.50)/ LORAC Pro matte eyeshadow palette (£23.76)/ Tarte Amizonian Clay matte eyeshadow palette ($46.00) / Too Faced Natural Matte Eyeshadow Palette ($36.00) /
Matte products are super hot right now and brands are jumping on the trend releasing entire palettes dedicated to it. We adore the Too Faced Natural Matte palette, its got that stunning signature Too Faced packaging as well as a variety of shades for use on the eyes and face. The Lorac Pro palette is also a real all rounder with shades from light to dark to create some real stunning looks, plus it has a handy mirror for on-the-go use.
