Makeup 101: Eye shadow palettes for a beginner


Hey “BD beauties”!

I’m coming to you today with another post part of the Makeup 101 segment i started recently! You can read the previous post of this segment HERE. I figured one of the things beginners suffer with when starting off with makeup is trying to get the right products. With all these makeup items in the market, it can be pretty overwhelming! I would recommend you purchasing eye shadow palettes when you start out as they are the most cost effective makeup products with variety!

Even with eye shadow palettes, you can see many! The brands I would recommend are BH cosmetics and Coastal scents. Bothe put out almost identical palettes with very similar quality. If you like in the US or Europe, you might find this cheap. However, if you’re like me and live in Asia I would suggest you purchase these off of ebay or other Asian based companies like tmart.com. I find these way cheaper than coastal scents or BH cosmetics and they provide the same products without a brand name.
The palette I would recommend you get is the 168 eyeshadow palette (REVIEW HERE). If you’re a huge lover of neutral shades, I would also recommend the 28 neutral eyeshadow palette (REVIEW HERE).


The 168 eye shadow palette

I bought this for $16.74
This is my favourite palette! Though I’m no longer a beginner, I find myself gravitating towards this palette a lot often than my single products. Because of its versatility, it makes a tutorial easier for me as I do not have to dig in various products and mess up my makeup table (I anyway do end up having a messy table -_-). Why this palette is a favourite for me, is because it has 2 layers of colours one of which is more towards neutrals and the other has more brighter options this way you can do your daily neutral eye at the same time, experiment with color which most girls are scared of!

The 28 neutral eye shadow palette

I bought this for $9.49 
This palette is the go to palette for an everyday look! It has all the shades you would need, the brow bone highlight, the crease colour, the definition shades and so on! it has a lovely champagne for the lids, and an extremely pigmented plum shade which is my favourite shade from this palette. The only thing i which it had was a rich matte black shade as I use lack for almost all my looks! However, if you sure that you would never wear color, and that neutral is your way to go, i would suggest you purchase this instead of the 168 shadow palette. The size of the shadow is comparable to a standard MAC eye shadow, which is pretty good.

Overall if you have the money, I would definitely tell you to go for both the palettes! They are such a great deal and if you’re lucky you might even get them cheaper than the price i got them for!
Hope this post helped all my lovely beginners out there!
