We can never have too much makeup and there’s no such thing as makeup hoarding (right?). Because the best makeup palettes of 2020 are all of the makeup palettes. Don’t tell us any differently. They save space (no more carrying around 1,000 different containers), cut down on get-ready time and inspire us to use more of the shades we would normally. Because they’re right there.
Makeup palettes make great gifts, too. While giving a single eyeshadow to your mom doesn’t seem super exciting, a new eyeshadow palette is! And if she’s obsessed with getting her brows just right, an eyebrow palette will give her all the colors and tools she needs. And we can’t forget about highlighting, contouring and blush palettes that give you multiple hues and finishes you can play around with depending on the day.
Because we love makeup palettes so much, we’re rounded up some of our favorites to give and to treat yourself.
Our mission at STYLECASTER is to bring style to the people, and we only feature products we think you’ll love as much as we do. Please note that if you purchase something by clicking on a link within this story, we may receive a small commission of the sale.
