Let’s be honest, we always reach for neutral colors for daily eye shadow, don’t we all? Unless you work in the industry where it requires you to put on creative makeup, normally people will reach for the neutral look for everyday use (hence tons of youtube tutorial on smokey look, neutral look, matte look) Maybe occasionally a little pop of color to match your outfit sometimes, but me personally will reach for the palette that I know for sure what look I can create out of it without thinking to combine it with other palettes
So here I am, looking at my collections and realize how many neutral palettes that I have. But, Here are my top 3 palettes for everyday look
1. Too Faced Semi Sweet
Why is this on my top of the list? One, it’s because it has pops of blue in this. Two, it is because it smells like chocolate. Yes, I said it! Who wouldn’t love to have chocolate smell in the morning while putting on makeup? (I love me some nice smell on my products) Not to mention that you can get tons of cool and warm neutral colors in this palette. I also love how the shimmer in this palette looks, not too gliterry but still give a nice glow to brighten the eye look.If I can only choose one from Too Faced big palette, I will definitely choose this one.
Little tips for look that I do many times with this palette:
Mousse+Puddin for crease, Hot Fudge for outer corner, Bon bon for the lid, Butter Pecan for brow bone highlight
2. Tartelette In Bloom
This palette won’t be in a lot of Beauty Guru’s favorite palette if it isn’t good. If you follow me on Instagram, the In Bloom palette is a very recent palette that I got but I’ve been eyeing for it for quite some time. When I finally got it, I can tell that it’s love in the first swipe. The pigmentation is awesome, the texture is all so soft and so easy to blend it, it also smell like chocolate (not as strong as Too Faced, people says it smells like Vanilla but for me it smells like coco powder but very subtle)
You can definitely get various look from this palette. From a very simple no-makeup look to a sultry smokey eye look, that’s not too dark, because it’s more on the deep brown side instead of black.
A nice nude look that I have tried with this palette:
Smarty Pants + Jetsetter for crease, Funny Girl for the lid, Flower Child for brow bone highlight
3. Too Faced Sweet Peach
For you who love warm tones and girly shade for everyday look, this palette is the BOMB. You can pull a lot of look from this refreshing smell palette. If you would like to have a neutral look, you can go with the browns in this palette. Add up that peachy, pink, subtle green for pop of colors, or purple and deep brown smokey look. I always love Too Faced shimmer shadows, and this palette is no exception
Peachy girly look from this palette:
Peaches n Cream for base, Georgia + Candied Peach for crease, Bellini for lid. For more defined look, I sometimes use Tempted or Delectable as eyeliner (only thin line right on the roots of the lash line)
Lorac Pro Palette (the original)
Why don’t I put this one as the 4th? Lorac Palettes are all so great in pigmentation and their eyeshadow are also very soft. One issue though, since it’s so soft, you will need to be light handed when applying it. Well for me, especially in the morning, I don’t feel like thinking doing my makeup or ended up with bold colors. Yes you can opt for the light color, but the crease color can go bold from 0 to 100 with just one swipe. So if you know for sure how much product you can get from one dip of brush, this palette is really good for a simple look, with a pop of gunmetal, or bronzy color.
