Top 5 Eyeshadow Palettes
The clear-cut winner of our Glossilist 2020 poll, Viseart Paris actually placed not one, not two, not even three...but fourpalettes on our Top 10 list (see download at the end of this list)! And it’s pretty easy to see why. Yeah, they’re a little on the pricey side, but man, do these palettes kick major ass!
Their Neutral Mattes palette is one of Viseart’s best sellers, with gorgeous beiges and browns that do an incredible job of shading, highlighting, and defining. Based on the results of this poll, I don’t need to tell you that this is THE must-have palette for your kit.
This is one badass palette! And as some of you already know, it’s an absolute essential for a professional makeup artist. The Viseart Grande Pro Volume 1 offers 30 pigment-rich matte shades that do a masterful job of shading, highlighting, and defining. Plus, it’s got individually magnetized pans, a folding easel, and a full-sized mirror.
So, to sum it up, this bad boy has got the goods and will make a statement.
With 15 essentials, Natasha Dedona’s Biba Palette is a great addition to anyone’s bag. It offers multiple textures of the shades you’ll use most, like mauves and burgundies to warm grays and black. It’s also on the expensive side but, again, you get what you pay for and you’ll love having this palette in your makeup bag.
The next three eyeshadow palettes finished with the same number of votes, so we’ll look at these alphabetically.
A few reasons to have tarte’s tartelette in bloom clay palette in your kit:
- It’s super-affordable (under $40 for 12 shades!)
- It’s a warm-toned mix of lid, crease, and liner shades
- It’s infused with tarte’s signature Amazonian clay for amazing payoff and smooth blending without a chalky look or feel
- Plus, mixing and matching is super-simple thanks to the assortment of microshimmers and mattes. It may not be quite up there with some of the pro products like Viseart, but you get plenty of bang for your buck and a reliable palette for your work.
