7 Neutral Eyeshadow Palettes to Pick Up from the Drugstore
Truth be told, we have a lot of “favorite” eyeshadow palettes. Practically every palette we hoard in our makeup collection is one that we cherish: the palette we’ve had since we were 14, the palette that’s falling apart but we refuse to give up on and the palette that we spent way too much on, but don’t regret one bit. Then there’s the neutral palette, the one we reach for when we’re in a pinch, or to bring a no-fuss-but-classic makeup look to life. Everyone needs one and if you’ve been using the same one since 2010, it’s time for an upgrade.
Ahead, click through for seven affordable, neutral eyeshadow palettes you need to find the perfect option for you.
