Go Mauve! Go Bronze! Go Wild!
Makeup palettes are absolutely the best way to transform your total makeup look instantly. You can use them to create subtle makeup looks, do summer makeup in a minute or even go totally wild with bright vivid color. The choice is yours. Find out which kits are Makeup Notebook favorites.
Combination Makeup Kits
If you’ve read all about choosing a makeup kit then you know that combination makeup palettes are designed around a central color theme and they’re the easiest way to switch looks.
If you have difficulty choosing makeup colors or want a look that works for anytime then start off with a kit that offers makeup colors in the mauve range or that contains neutral colors.
Here’s why: Mauve is a universal makeup color. That’s because it is one of the most wearable colors for most skin tones. If you don’t care for mauve then look for one that is for creating natural makeup looks.
Once you have your basic colors, then expand to other kits. Just think, whenever you want to create a look, you just grab your favorite kit and it’s all there for you.
Top Combination Makeup Palettes
Here are two kits you can count on to deliver beautiful neutral looks that work for anytime. Since cosmetic companies change their kits frequently, remember to check on eBay if you find your favorite one is sold out.
Jane Iredale Sample Kit, Medium – Imagine a combination makeup palette with colors that are actually good for your complexion. That’s exactly what this mineral makeup kit contains.
It include two foundations, natural and radiant, with a beautiful natural blush color called Dubonnet. The eye color is a perfect peach. It also contains lip plumper, lip balm and even concealer. All for just $28.
Sonia Kashuk How to Look Organically Natural 01 – If ever there was a perfect combination makeup palette, then this is it. Everything you need to create a natural look for daytime or even for the office is in this kit. The neutral colors and the very affordable price make this one even more tempting. Plus, it’s thin enough to fit in your purse easily. Just $19.
Bronze Makeup Palettes
Once upon a time it was very difficult to find good bronzing makeup products, but that’s not the case anymore. There are some outstanding bronzing selections out there, perfectly coordinated with the right blush, eye shadow and lip gloss colors to get a great summer makeup look or one to use if you’re a fan of sunless tanning in the winter.
Color Goes Wild
When it’s wildly wonderful color you want then choose a kit with both bright colors, a deep color and a highlight. Why? Because the highlight colors will actually make the deeper ones appear even darker when they’re used side by side. When you’re using bright colors try and find a kit that also has opposite color choices.
The best kits to use for fantasy makeup looks are the ones with lots of colors. Again, there are some very affordable selections. One of my favorites is the Sephora palettes. Although they’re mostly sheer colors, there are enough to really play with and create a number of looks. In fact, these kits were so popular last year that the only place you could find one was on eBay.
