Her pick: Tarte Unleashed palette
Why it's her fave: This palette checks all of my boxes: large pans for shadows, a gigantic mirror that makes it great for traveling, and a mix of matte and shimmer shades. The palette is also cruelty-free and the shades have the cutest names like Hawkward, Camelflauge, and No Fox Given. Oh, and it even comes with a travel-size mascara!

Her pick: Urban Decay Naked3 palette
Why it's her fave: This update to the original Naked palette has the prettiest rose-hued shades, which gives warmth to your eye shadow look. I love that it has metallics, mattes, and pearl colors to accommodate multiple looks—and you can’t beat the staying power of an Urban Decay eyeshadow.

Her pick: Urban Decay Naked palette
Why it's her fave: I don't where shadow much, but when I saw it on sale as it was being discontinued, I had to at least try it! I'm sad it's no longer available because it's the only palette I own, and it simply has everything I need. I love the shades because of how soft and layerable they are.

Her pick: Anastasia Beverly Hills Sultry palette
Why it's her fave: I adore the neutral and berry tones in this because they bring out the best and brightest of my blue eyes. The mattes are deeply pigmented and rich, meaning I can keep building and creating such gorgeous looks, effortlessly!

Her pick: Morphe 35O palette
Why it's her fave: From matte browns to copper shimmers, the 35O has TONS of options for any warm look. I can create glam and casual looks with this one pallette. Also, the shadows themselves are pigmented and butter smooth.
