Got a beauty lover on your holiday gift list this year? A makeup palette is the way to go.
Palettes ― whether eyeshadows, highlighters, lip colors, blushes or a combination of products ― are convenient and versatile. They offer a number of shades in one handy case, which offers a great bang for your buck, and since they come in so many varieties, there’s sure to be a perfect palette for your gift.
We understand that picking a palette for another person can be a little tricky. If you’re not sure exactly what colors your giftee likes, opt for something with more neutral colors than bold options. (You can never go wrong with neutrals!) If you’re buying for someone who loves experimenting with color, there are plenty of palettes that offer bright, bold or even sparkly shades that are sure to excite the most adventurous person.
On top of all that, palettes are the kind of thing people don’t always want to buy for themselves, as they tend to be a little pricier than single-shade shadows or one-off highlighters. That’s just another reason they make great gifts.
To help you find the best of the best palettes, we asked professional makeup artists to share their favorite palette picks for holiday gifting. Check them out below:
