For the ultimate eye:
For a true eye shadow fanatic, this palette offers a variety of soft, sultry, glam and romantic looks. Mix the neutrals for a shimmery natural eye, or add a dash of the deep violet for extra drama. They’re even organized by day, classic and fashion categories, so you can start with the suggested color and branch out from there with the other shades.

For the freshest flush:
Urban Decay’s Naked palette eyeshadows are cult classics, and its latest invention is bound to become one, too. Offering a mix of blush, bronzer and highlighter, you can use the color separately or swirl them from the apples of your cheeks up toward your temples in a C-shape to brighten and enhance your complexion.

For a statement lip and neutral eye:
This kit includes shadows and lip colors for creating a neutral or vibrant look depending on your mood. Use the white shadow in the corners of your eyes to brighten and layer over the sparkly cement color for emphasis. Pair it with a pale mauve lip to complement, or amp up the look with a touch of vibrant pink gloss.
