1. Becca Ombre Rouge Eye Palette

Neutral shadows will never go out of style, so if you’re looking to invest in some good eye shadows, something like Becca’s Ombre Rouge palette is failsafe. The no nonsense range of browns is perfect for five-minute eye makeup, and the deep burgundy is also a great choice for a sultry smokey eye or instant eyeliner.

If you have any relatives or friends coming home from overseas, work your charm and ask them to bring one of these home. This palette has converted even the biggest luxury beauty skeptics with its smooth, buttery formula. Cocoa Mirage #4 is a chocolate brown that’s definitely worth the hefty price. It’s one of those shades that even someone who abhors eye shadow can rock.
3. Chanel Les 4 Ombres Eyeshadow Quad in Tissé Cambon

Not a fan of neutrals? Fear not, because Chanel’s baked eye shadows come in statement colors of all kinds. One swipe of the pink and purple shades on your eyes and you can make it summer all day, every day.
4. Viseart Eyeshadow Palette in Sultry Muse
Viseart Eyeshadow Palette in Sultry Muse, P4000, Digital Traincase
Viseart first made a name for itself for having the perfect palettes for make-up artists. The brand has nine different variations of this palette, but Sultry Muse has satin and metallic finishes that aren’t chalky and glittery like your typical shimmer palette. They’re amazing for playing up your usual matte eye looks and are pigmented with a capital P.
5. Make Up For Ever Artist Palette
Make Up For Ever Artist Palette, P2500, Greenbelt 3
MUFE has pretty much mastered the art of formulating bomb eyeshadows, so buying a palette from them is almost a must. Don’t let this palette’s name fool you, though. You don’t have to be an artist or a blending master to go far with it. Pick your poison among their nudes, brights, and smokey palettes.
Which one are you getting next payday?
