Today I’m rounding up my Top 5 Everyday Eyeshadow Palettes! These are the ones I’ve been reaching for the most this year I feel are best suited for everyday wear. Would love to hear what your favorites are in the comments!
Chanel Candeur Et Experience
Chanel Les 4 Ombres in Candeur Et Experience 268 ($62) is probably one that has surprised me as being super wearable. It has a red shade which I normally don’t wear but the combination of the other browns with the red makes for a really good everyday eye look for me. It’s the one of the top 3 eyeshadow quads that get the most compliments. Pigment is medium but buildable for a soft look. Lasting power is good and stays put all day.
Wearing: Les Beiges Healthy Glow Foundation in B50, Poudre Universelle Libre in 30, Les 4 Ombres in Candeur Et Experience, Joues Contraste Blush in Alezane, Rouge Allure Velvet in Low-Key
If you want a more neutral-cool or cooler toned option, try Chanel Les 4 Ombres Clair Obscur (all matte cool neutrals) or Tisse Rivoli (neutral-cool shimmers)
Charlotte Tilbury Bella Sofia
Charlotte Tilbury Luxury Eye Palette in Bella Sofia ($53) is one of my all-time favorites for an everyday look. It has wearable brown and bronze tones I think are flattering on a wide range of skin tones and eye colors. Colors include a soft pale champagne shimmer, warm coppery brown shimmer, deeper brown shimmer and a gold sparkle topper. (The name of this used to be Dolce Vita but they changed it to Bella Sofia.)
If you want no sparkle/glitter try her Super Nudes Easy Eye Palette (soft velvety luminous matte) or The Sophisticate (all matte, neutral-cool tones).
Makeup By Mario Master Mattes Eyeshadow Palette
Makeup By Mario Master Mattes Eyeshadow Palette ($48) is one of my newest discoveries and I cannot believe how long it took me to finally try it. It 100% lives up to the hype with soft blendable mattes. All the colors perform well (no chalky finish in any of them). It has a good range of neutrals with different undertones and browns in super flattering colors.
If you like all mattes and neutrals, get this one.
Patrick Ta Major Dimension Eyeshadow Palette
Patrick Ta Major Dimension Eyeshadow Palette ($68) is neutral bronze champagne perfection. It has everything you need for a complete eye look including 2 cream browns that work really well as a base. The remaining colors include a mix of mattes, shimmers, sparkle toppers. This is the second most complimented palette I own. You can create a lot of looks with this one and I think it’s very wearable even with the sparkle glitters.
Quality wise this one is not the best that I have tried. Other brands like Natasha Denona, Tom Ford and Anastasia Beverly Hills have a better more finely milled quality and texture, but the one from Patrick Ta is still very good and wearable.
Too Faced Born This Way Natural Nudes
Too Faced Born This Way Natural Nudes ($48) is another favorite I tried this year and I also think this is lovely! I was worried the metallic shimmers and sparkles would be too trendy for me but they are really wearable when layered on top of the mattes. There is a definitely a noticeable sparkle with the lighter shades but they adhere well and I think they are very wearable. I love this one because it has a great range of colors from light, medium and deep.
Worn in my Rose Hermes Silky Blush Review:
A few of you have asked whether I prefer the Patrick Ta or Too Faced and I would say it’s a tough pick. They’re both unique in their own way. I like that the Patrick Ta Palette has 2 creams that are really good in quality and pigment. I also like the color range. The Too Faced has a bit more variety with the pink and rose tones mixed in.
Out of the two I would say the one from Patrick Ta is a bit more conservative on the sparkle side while the Too Faced is a bit more glitzy/trendy. Both have some intense sparkle toppers so your mileage may vary depending on how much sparkle you are comfortable wearing.
There are lots of other great eyeshadow palettes I own and still wear. It was tough to narrow it down to my top 5 but after careful thought I picked the ones I find myself reaching for the most this year. Runner ups I would also consider everyday kind of eyeshadow palettes include:
- Anastasia Beverly Hills Soft Glam (swatches here)
- Natasha Denona Mini Nude (review here)
- Natasha Denona Biba (swatches here)
- Natasha Denona Glam Palette (review here)
- Tom Ford Mink Mirage (swatches here)
