Eyelids on fleeek!
First, let’s give you a minute to digest that we’re already riding the last leg of the year. While it’s now too late to take back the year, you can make putting away your summer wardrobe a bit easier – by changing up your makeup game! Shortest route: switch your current eyeshadow palette for deeper, richer tones that blend in with #fallvibes. Just like getting a new fall wardrobe, but for your face!
And with the current slew of our favourite makeup brand releases and celeb collabs flooding the beauty market, these eyeshadow palettes offer gorgeous possibilities that will last you beyond the season. Check out the hottest, trending palettes below!
Urban Decay Naked Heat Palette
Considering the 7-years young UD Naked line is a universal favourite, we’re super excited about the latest palette to join the fam – the Naked Heat. In fact, when it launched back in June, it promptly sold out in a whopping 13 hours!
The palette features 12 trendy shades – an impressive array of burnt orange, terracotta, and rust hues that flatter a range of skin tones and hair colours. What’s special is that each of the shades is infused with a flash of red that brightens up any eye.
Kylie Cosmetics The Purple Palette
After her successful Birthday Edition, King Kylie is back with her upcoming fall offering, dropping this week. The Snapchat queen revealed five new autumnal lip kit shades earlier this week in signature style, but what we’re most excited about is her newest eyeshadow palette – dominated by fall-favourite purple, and supported by a few neutrals.
Plus, the new shades have the prettiest names: Blueberry, Purple Smoke, Amethyst, Wine N' Dine, Turning Violet, Lilac, Stone, Trophy, and Periwinkle!
Huda Beauty Desert Dusk Eyeshadow Palette
This one just dropped but takes the award for the most anticipated palette of the season. With her previous hit launch – the Huda Beauty Rose Gold Palette (now discontinued, #RIP) – Youtube star and beauty maven Huda Kattan is all set to take over fall with her brand new offering, reminiscent of the hues of the Arabian desert.
And this isn’t the average palette either – its 18 vibrant, highly-pigmented shades including holographic duo-chrome toppers and a pure glitter, create four different finishes. So if you want to up the drama this fall, you know where to look.
Maybelline 24K Nudes
Though this 12-pan palette released earlier this year, its rich jewel-tones, glimmering metals and go-to neutrals make it the perfect drugstore pick for fall. The product has incredible colour payoff and staying power, and also a good selection of shimmers. Try forest green or sparkly gold for a pretty fall lid.
Pat McGrath Labs Mothership II: Sublime Palette
With 7 sold-out limited-edition makeup collections (remember those divine Lust glitter lipsticks?), the goddess of red carpet makeup, Pat McGrath, is finally launching her first permanent range – centring on three eye palettes, dubbed the "Mothership" palettes, each with a range of 10 plush powder eyeshadows in matte neutrals, holographic metallics and shimmery bold pigments.
The second Mothership palette, in particular, is a great fall splurge – a celestial collection of 10 cult-classic shades in mesmerizing jewel tones and signature matte neutrals. Needless to say, the results are nothing short of stunning.
Anastasia Beverley Hills Subculture Eye Palette
Controversy aside, this newest palette from ABH is great because of the entire spectrum of fall-worthy shades it covers. The palette perfectly combines the warm tones that are currently the rage, with cooler teals and purples, in both mattes and metallics, so you have a good variety of shades and finishes to create endless sultry looks this season.
Morphe x Jaclyn Hill Eyeshadow Palette
Having sold out in less than an hour twice already, this super popular palette by YouTube beauty royalty in collaboration with Morphe is back in stock and ready to be sold out again. A collection of 35 mattes, shimmers, satins, foils, and glitter, all pressed to perfection into one large, super affordable palette that’s poised to be your go-to this season – and will probably take you well into next year.
