4 Palettes For Every Level Beauty Guru On Your List

Everyone has the one beauty lover on their gift list, but has no clue what to get them. Maybe they're just starting out and you have no clue what beginner makeup palettes to get them. Or maybe they're crazy experienced, and you don't have any good idea for colorful palettes. Today I thought I would share a few awesome palettes with you guys, divided into categories for the perfect recipient.

For The Newbie:

  • Urban Decay Naked Basics Palette - Still the holy grail of beginner palettes, this palette has 5 matte shades and 1 demi-matte, ranging from a slightly shimmery, off white to a deep black. 
  • ELF Everyday Smokey Eyeshadow Palette - This palette is contains tons of shadows that can be worn on their own for simple looks, but will also give any budding makeup addict the basis for the perfect smokey eye. 
  • Bobby Brown Nude Drama Eyeshadow Palette - This palette also has a great mix of shimmers and mattes, with a wide range of shades. While they do lean a little more towards the pink-y side, there are also some great browns and nudes making this palette completely wearable. 
  • Clinique Sweet As Honey Eyeshadow Palette - Ok, another palette that leans towards the pink side, but this palette is all mattes. The shades are designed to be worn together, so with one palette, your recipient will be able to make tons of new looks. 

For the Everyday Guru:
  • Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance Palette - This palette is the perfect mix of mattes and shimmers, neutrals and colors. I love the pink tones in the palette and how easy it is to transform a look from something simple to something that pops. 
  • ColourPop Golden State of Mind Palette - While this palette is entirely shimmer shadows, each color is completely wearable and the range offered will help bring any wearer out of their comfort zone, in a not totally over-the-top kind of way (if that made any sense at all). 
  • Morphe Jaclyn Hill Eyeshadow Palette - If you're looking for a good bang for your buck, this is your palette. With 35 shadows in all different finishes, this palette covers all your bases and will be amazing for anyone looking to try to experiment a little with makeup but still offers tons of shades on the safe side (with a few pop colors). 
  • Maybelline 24K nudes Eyeshadow Palette - This is another great palette that offers a huge range of shades. It has great shades for anyone looking to do a classic look but also throws in a few extra shades to really amp it up. 

For the Expert: 
  • Fenty Beauty Galaxy Eyeshadow Palette - If your recipient is as big a makeup fan as they claim to be, they will definitely have heard of this palette (it's been all over social media). The  bright and shimmery colors in this palette are perfect for someone ready to experiment with colorful looks. 
  • NYX Brights Ultimate Shadow Palette - Wow, if you're looking for a gift with some color, this is the perfect palette. With 16 crazy bright shades from yellows to pinks, this palette will give anyone the base for tons of crazy looks. 
  • L'OrĂ©al Color Riche La Palette Noir - This eyeshadow palette contains 10 great colors to create a bold smoky eye. They're all extremely pigmented, so it does take a little practice to use, but it's an amazing gift for anyone who's willing to spend some time figuring it out. 
  • Anastasia Beverly Hills Prism Eye Shadow Palette - This palette contains 14 shades ranging from classic neutrals to prism-inspired brights. It's got a great mix of mattes and shimmers and has some very unique colors. 

Ok, so these are some new, great palettes to give as holiday gifts this year! Let me know which ones you guys are giving, or better yet, which palettes are on your wishlist!
