By Srijita Poddar

Hi my lovely ladies,

How are you doing? Ask a girl for a list of things she loves and you would, for sure, find makeup products in the list. However, most girls need to start somewhere and that is where we at IMBB aim to help you. So today we will tell you how to choose the perfect eyeshadow palette. Follow these simple tips and you will find the perfect palette that will be your best value for money.

How to Choose the Perfect Eyeshadow Palette

⦁ Choose the type of eyeshadow you want

Before you pick your palette, you must be sure of the texture and the type of eyeshadow you want. You can choose from matte, mineral, shimmer, metallic, or even cream eyeshadow palettes. Matte is flat with no sparkle or shine and is fairly long-lasting. It is especially a good choice for all you oily skinned beauties out there. Mineral eyeshadows are made from strictly natural mineral components; this property makes mineral eyeshadows a good choice for the skin and should be ideal for the sensitive, allergy- prone skin. Shimmer and metallic are for those who want to party into the wee hours of the night. Cream eyeshadows hold on for longer and are better for dry skin.

⦁ Find the eyeshadows that complement your eye color

Just like every skin tone is unique, our eyes also have diverse colours and there are these beautiful shades which assist in bringing out the best in them.
Brown or black eyes: Browns and blacks are the most common eye colours and they look exquisite with rich jewel tones such as burgundy. However, if you want to go for a safer and more neutral choice, you can go for palettes with warm browns. If a sexy and dramatic effect is your pick then rich navy and midnight blues give a sexy dramatic effect to your eyes.
Green eyes: Beautiful mustards and warm peaches will give a brightening effect and natural flair to green eyes. These colours blended with milk chocolate shadow gives intensity and richness whereas you can add cool taupe for a modern look. Golds are also a good choice to add highlight and dimension.
Blue eyes: If you want your blue eyes to appear greyer toned, your choice of colours should be purple or shades of lavender. Rust coloured shadows are a more edgy choice as using this colour will make your eyes most electric.

Use this guide to pick an eye palette that will predominantly cater to the needs of your eyes and you can ensure that the one you picked will be the best value for your money.

⦁ If you’re a beginner, go for a nude palette

If you want a versatile palette that will go with almost all your outfits then you must opt for a nude eye palette. As a beginner, it is also the best palette to start learning how to work with your eyes. With a nude palette, you can understand the basic difference in the colours that need to be applied to the crease or the outer v as well as the eyelid and brow bone. If you are looking for drugstore options then you can try Maybelline or L’Oréal. However, if you are looking for high end pigmented eye shadows then Urban Decay and Too Faced should be your pick.

⦁ If budget is an issue, pick a price range and look for the best

Sometimes we all have a crunch in the amount of money we can spend on our beauty products. If that is your case, then worry not. You can still find an eye palette which is just meant for you. All you need to do is predetermine your price range, and then go on from there. List a couple of brands that operate in the similar price range, then read up reviews and try on some colours at the store to check the pigmentation and you can buy your very own budgeted eye palette.

⦁ Don’t choose quantity over quality

Often you’ll come across eye palettes which offer you 52 or more shadows in one palette but have absolutely no pigmentation. While buying the palette keep your personality and tastes in mind. If you are a girl who has never been seen going for wild or experimental clothing or makeup in the past, chances are that it will reflect in your choice of eyeshadow as well. Pick an eye palette that contains well-pigmented colours that go with your skin tone, eye colour as well as personality and that will ensure that your eye palette is a good purchase.

⦁ Get a range of useful colors

While it’s essential to not go overboard with the quantity, do not choose an entire palette because there is just one colour in it that you like. It is essential that you feel that you are going to end up using at least 80 percent of the colours in your eye palette otherwise it would make more sense to go for a single. When choosing a palette, make sure it has a good mix of colours and textures that tie in with one another: a light and a dark shade, a neutral, and one with shimmer.

⦁ Try to find a palette with a chart if you’re a beginner

If you are a makeup beginner you might want to look for palettes which come with cute handy charts and a guide that show the usage and application of various colors. Such charts help you utilise all the colors and enhance your makeup skills too.
