Best Makeup Palettes

Tuesday, June 17, 2014

It's summertime! And that means keeping your summer makeup routine quick and easy. No one likes having caked-on layers in the summer heat and sweat. So in these summer months, I keep it light by sticking to some SPF, blush/bronzer and eyeshadow. Mascara and eyeliner melt, so I skip those. With a summer tan and highlights, you don't need much anyway.

Below are some of my favorite makeup palettes to keep it fresh and simple. Palettes are a convenient way to keep everything together, so you can just throw one in your bag for a refresher when you're on the go. 

Three eyeshadow palettes I recommend are: Urban Decay Naked ($54), Smashbox Full Exposure ($49), and Stila In the Light ($39). Naked has great soft shimmers, and Full Exposure's matte shades are flattering. But the best combination of shimmer and matte would have to be Stila's In the Light. If you're looking for just one palette, my favorite all-around is Lorac Pro-to-Go ($38). It's got everything you need - light and dark shadows, blush, and bronzer. (And the dark shadows can always double as smokey liners). A lot of palettes out there highlight cute packaging and skip quality pigment. But this one from Lorac has great deep color, so a little goes a long away. It's not too big either, so it will fit anywhere conveniently. 

Hope you're enjoying your summer so far! What are some of your favorite summer beauty tips?
