Eyeshadow Palettes FAQs
How do I choose an eyeshadow palette?
Eyeshadow palettes are irresistible paintboxes full of different colors for your eyes. They contain multiple eyeshadow colors, either in harmonizing colors or in a variety of shades. They usually offer a selection of textures as well, including matte, satin, shimmer or glitter.
To choose an eyeshadow palette, start by determining your needs. Do you want a basic or neutral color palette for every day? Then a palette containing natural shades, like the New Classics Eyeshadow Palette, should do the trick. Do you want to experiment with fashion colors or textures? Many limited-edition palettes, such as the Game Up Ready to Play Eyeshadow Palette, offer trendy hues. Are you looking for a cost-effective way to test out some new shades? Something like a cost-effective Bite Size Eyeshadow Palettes could be the perfect solution.
Next, assess the actual palette you are considering and determine how many of the shades you will actually use. If you think you might only use one or two colors, keep looking. Once you make your selection, don’t hesitate to try as many shades as possible. Check out tutorials and use your imagination to make the most of every hue in the palette.
How do I choose a beginner eyeshadow palette?
If you’re a makeup beginner, you will want to pick an eyeshadow palette that contains a wide enough range of colors--from light to dark—to use as base shades, highlighter shades and contouring shades for every day looks. Matte shades are the easiest to work with and the most suitable for daily wear, but your palette should also include some satin and shimmer textures for when you want to create an amped-up or glamorous look. Be sure there are plenty of shades that complement your skin tone—warm, cool or neutral; deep, medium or fair. And finally, look for a few shades that really “pop” for when you’re in the mood to try a trendy look.
How long do eyeshadow palettes last?
It depends on how often you use your eyeshadow palette. The more you use the colors, the faster you’ll go through them. However, keep in mind that with eyeshadow palettes, there are more colors to choose from so it’s likely all the shades will last longer.
