The Best Eyeshadow Palettes for Makeup Beginners

Considering a new eyeshadow palette seems to drop every week, it can be difficult to figure out which you should add to your collection, especially if your stash is in the early stages of development. Personally, we feel like a kid in a candy store when it comes to shopping for new eye palettes. If you’re an eyeshadow beginner, makeup artists and beauty influencers alike recommend stocking up on essential palettes that you’ll reach for everyday, and we couldn’t agree more.
