Lorac Pro Palette
The shadows included in this palette are highly pigmented and last for ages. The best part of this palette is that the shadows can be used wet or dry. Swirling with water will create a beautiful shimmer effect.

Tarte NeutralEYEs Palette
This little palette has enough variety to create several shimmery and matte looks. The eye shadows are magnetic so they can be popped out and replaced, rather than going out and buying a new one each time.

Sephora Collection Moonshadow Baked
If you love shimmery glittery shadows than this is one of the best palettes for that. The colors are basic nudes, however the shimmery finish is really what sets them apart from other neutral shades. This is a great palette to use for both day and night.

NYX Nude on Nude Palette
Can’t afford the Urban Decay Naked Palette? This is one of the best makeup palettes to use as a dupe. The colors and shades match many of those that are found in the Naked 2 palette. Not only does this work as a great substitute, but it also comes with 10 different lip shades, which is something that the naked palette doesn’t have.
