5 Great Eyeshadow Palettes for Any Occasion


by Taila Ross

Sometimes your eyes need to look on point and you don’t have a good palette. I’ve been there, and I’m here to bring you my top 5 eyeshadow palettes. Whether you want to create a basic eye look or an iconic look, these palettes should get the job done.


Modern Renaissance, $42 

By Anastasia Beverly Hills

This is a super-classic palette. Everybody knows about it and anyone who takes makeup seriously has it. You can create the most soft looks with these; or you can blend the pinks and reds to make a bevy of deep red looks. 


The Masquerade Mini, $25

By Juvia’s Place

This palette is the palette for people who do pressed shimmer looks or look for a palette with pigment. The palette is mainly shimmers, but it’s not a bad thing. You can still clock looks with this palette.


Electric Obsessions, $26

By Huda Beauty 

This mini palette is an essential for bold colored looks. It does have a lot of kickback in the pan, but when it gets on the eyelid it’s the most boldest. It’s glitters are buttery and smooth and the matte shades are perfect on their own. The palette is very summery with its brightly colored shades.


Saint + Sinner, $62

By Kat Von D

This is the most expensive palette on the list, but it’s worth it because of the colors in the palette. Half of the colors are for more casual and softer looks and the other half is more bright, exciting colors, both halves being equally pigmented. The shimmer shadows are smooth and are great for blending. Even though the names (which are religious terms i.e,“Stigmata””) make no sense for some colors, it’s still a great palette. 


Alyssa Edwards X ABH, $45

By Anastasia Beverly Hills

This is a recent palette on the list, made for Pride month and now sold year-long. It’s ABH’s collab with drag queen Alyssa Edwards who is best known for their appearance as a contestant on the reality show “RuPaul’s Drag Race.” Its colors are eye popping and mostly on the random-ish side. The shadows need to be built up to give it a vivid look, but with eye primer and strong will, you’ll get a good eye-look.
