We’re not ones to pass up a chance to go super glam or bold when it comes to our makeup. In fact, we’re usually the first to try every single colorful mascara, glittery eye shadow or bright lipstick we can get our gel-manicured hands on. However, no matter how much we adore bright colors and wild makeup textures, there are some days when only a natural makeup look will do. In honor of Earth Day, we’ve narrowed down the four prettiest, Mother Nature-inspired palettes (sent to us by our pals at L’Oréal) that are ideal for honoring the ground we walk on!

Urban Decay Naked Smoky Eye Shadow Palette

Urban Decay’s classic eye shadow palette is a Pinterest favorite for a reason. Not only are the eye shadows super-pigmented, but the earthy color range allows for versatility in accomplishing a variety of looks, ranging from dramatic eye makeup to soft and subtle lids.

NYX Mosaic Powder Blush in Truth

There are nine blushes to choose from in the NYX Mosaic Powder Blush Collection, but it’s this neutral-colored shade that really stands out. A matte blush with subtle shimmer, the gold and coppery colors in this compact blend together flawlessly and are ideal for highlighting.

Maybelline ExpertWear Eye Shadow 8 Pan in Sunbaked Neutrals

Another classic product, this eight-pan palette is by far one of the prettiest earth-toned drugstore finds out there. Ideal for creating eye makeup looks that are simple and sophisticated, the natural cream, tan, brown and green shades complement each other seamlessly, making this palette perfect for everyday wear.

 The Body Shop’s Honey Bronze Shimmer Waves

This is what we like to call Mother Nature-inspired beauty with a twist! This bronze-hued illuminator is stacked with shimmering pink, tan, deep brown, gold and copper shades, which look stunning separately or when combined. Perfect for strobing and contouring, use as little or as much of these shades as you want!
