Day 2 of my March Favorites features the warm-toned eyeshadow palettes I reach for most often.
Favorite Warm-Toned Palette (high-end):
Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance Palette ($42)
This probably isn't a surprise, because I've mentioned this palette pretty often, but it's honestly been my most reached-for palette since last Spring when it first launched. Even though it has some deeper smokier shades, the majority are really wearable, warm-toned, everyday shades so I can use this for literally any occasion (there are 14 shades total). For daily looks, I love dipping into the left side of the palette, using shades like Tempera, Burnt orange, Raw Sienna, and Vermeer. For a night out, I love Red Ochre, Realgar, Antique Bronze, and Cyprus Umber to create a warm, smoky eye. Aside from the shade selection, the quality is just top-notch...not many eyeshadows compare to Anastasia's formula in my opinion. They're so pigmented, easy to pick up and blend, and they last a long time on the eyes. If you've been contemplating getting this palette, my advice would be to just go for it...you won't be disappointed!
Favorite Warm-Toned Palette (drugstore):
NYX Ultimate Eyeshadow Palette in Warm Neutrals
I purchased this palette a few months ago and have already used it a ton. It's a very affordable version of the Modern Renaissance palette and while the formula isn't quite as amazing as Anastasia's, it's still nicely pigmented and applies beautifully to the eyes. I don't always love NYX's eyeshadows but this one is definitely an exception (it's comparable to their Avant Pop palettes if you've tried those).
I love the mix of matte and shimmer shades and just like the Modern Renaissance palette, there are plenty of everyday wearable nudes to choose from as well as richer, smokier shades (16 shades total).
Available at Target and Macy's for $17.99-$18.
