From the day, no-makeup (naked) beauty created quite the stir (Re: all hail Kim K), neutral eyeshadow palettes have become the LBD of the beauty world. What do we mean by neutral eyeshadows? These are gorgeous, earthy, au natural shades of nude that can be worn daily, suit every skin tone, complement every outfit and event out there; plus, these not-so-basic palettes can be mixed and matched to create an impact like none other. However, the biggest allure for us, is that you can pair it with a bright red pout or a glossy nude lip — without even a second thought! Yay. Cons? There are so many beautiful hues to choose from, we want them all!!
Scroll down below for our pick of neutral eyeshadow palettes that deserves a place in your beauty kit STAT.
