My first makeup palette was a beautiful Chantecaille eyeshadow quad my sister gave me as a birthday present when I was a teenager. At the time, I admit I didn’t know much about the brand, but just one look at the intricate, detailed designs of those eyeshadows (very much similar to Chantecaille’s versions available now) and I knew that makeup palette was something special. I remember being terrified of messing up the pretty packaging at first, but weeks later when I couldn’t wait any longer to experiment with my new gift, I ended up wearing all the shadows down to the very last speck.
One of the greatest things about makeup palettes is their versatility. Wear the colors alone, or mix and match each product to create tons of different looks. Palettes are made to easily toss in your purse, and they take the guesswork out of which makeup colors will match with what—incredibly time-saving and super convenient.
Aside from having stunning packaging, these beauty palettes are extremely helpful when you’re trying to edit down your makeup bag and create a lot of great looks for day or night. Above, shop the luxe options that are worth every cent—trust us, no shadow will be left behind.
