The 6 palettes you need in your makeup collection right now


It seems like makeup palettes are the one thing we can’t get enough of (aside from lipsticks, of course). Beauty brands are constantly releasing new editions of old favorites – think Urban Decay’s Naked palettes collections. But because the industry is constantly changing and influenced by high fashion, it isn’t unusual to want to reach for new shades. This fall, these are the palettes you need.

Quo – All About Eye Shadow Palette

This new Quo release is neutrals heaven, with its combination of mattes and shimmers and just enough taupe colors to get you through the fall. The beautiful harmonies of the darker colors can help transition an eyeshadow-less day look to a night look with just a few strokes.

L’Oréal Paris — Infallible Concealing & Contour Kit ($19.49 at Jean-Coutu)

Many wonder why concealing palettes are so popular, because only one shade is the right one. I’ve learned to use the darker shades in concealing palettes as cream bronzer, or as a primer for powders (both eyeshadow and bronzers)! They are longer-lasting than actual primers because they are made to last, and really help bring out the shade applied on top.

Physicians Formula – Bronze Booster Highlight & Contour Palette ($14.95 online)

The Physicians Formula butter bronzers are well-known across the beauty community, but the brand’s powder cheek products are some of the best on the market for the price. The palette comes in two tones, one lighter version for whoever wishes to highlight a lighter complexion. I have to admit that they look better when applied with your finger, because the product gets picked up easier!


Make Up Forever – Flash Color Palette ($110 at Sephora)

These cream palettes have stirred up quite a bit of controversy, mostly because people can’t figure out how to use them. I’m not a pro myself, but I do love cream multi-use palettes. They serve as a light tint when used on the lips and help bring out powder blushes when you use these as a ‘primer’ for your blush!

Dior – Eyes & Lips Palette ($98 at Sephora)

Perfect for your purse, this small but mighty palette has everything you need to transition from a day look to a night look – including lip products. The neutral shimmery shades can be blended together for a stunning gradient, or simply used on their own. If you’re lucky enough, that brown shade is your eyebrow shade, so you don’t even need to bring a brow product!

Studio Makeup – On The Go Eyeshadow Palette in Warm Up ($39 online)

A good makeup palette usually has a matte black, a matte brown, and a copper shade. Guess which one has all three? For the price, you get amazing quality shadows in a compact palette that you can easily work with to achieve the look you are going for. These warm tones are perfect for fall. I use the third color on the top row all over my lid and the black shade as eyeliner on lazy days!
