If you knew you were going to be stuck on a desert island, what eyeshadow palette would you bring with you? The options are abundant, but we’ve narrowed it down to these five beauties!

Top 5 Eyeshadow Palettes

Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance Eyeshadow Palette

This one shouldn’t come to anyone’s surprise as it’s one of the most talked about and love palettes in the industry. ABH eyeshadows are notorious for their high pigment, so you we know these would last you a lifetime on the any desert island!  What makes this warm palette so great, is the ability to layer the colors together to create multi-dimensional looks with its variety of shimmers, matts and metallics. If you don’t have this yet, you’re missing out!

COLOR TO TRY: Venitian Red (dark red shimmer with pink undertones)

Morphe x Jaclyn Hill Eyeshadow Palette

This beauty cult favorite is at the top of our list! These buttery shadows are so easy to work with, buildable, and create beautiful looks. The palette is certainly warm toned, but it does incorporate some fun pops up color that are bound to inspire any creator.

We love the two highlight shadows (Enlight and Beam) – one is white golden and the other slightly iridescent pink. They are shadows but you can use them as intense highlighter on cheeks if you dare 😉

COLOR TO TRY: Huntz (bright matte terracotta orange)

Makeup Geek x MannyMUA Eyeshadow Palette

Although this one isn’t talked about as much as our other pics, it’s a wonderfully versatile collection of shadows. The quality: amazing! Although the palette has technically been discontinued, you can still purchase the shadows individually. The palette is on the warmer side but leans a little more neutral that other ‘warm’ palettes. You can actually manage to use all of the colors in this eyeshadow palette, sometimes in one look, which is not something we can say about most palettes!

COLOR TO TRY: Insomnia (warm red brown with blue reflects and a foiled finish)

BH Cosmetics x Carli Bybel Deluxe Edition Eyeshadow & Highlighter Palette

A newbie, but a goodie. This palette is extremely versatile as it comes with several cheek / face highlighting and bronzy powders that can also double up as shadows. This palette is amazing for lighter complexions, although the shimmers and metallics look amazing on all skin tones. If you want to embody natural day time vibes, this palette is a must.

COLOR TO TRY: Large rosegold highlighter pan (neutral rosegold smooth shimmer)
