5 Must Have Eye Shadow Palettes For A Smokey Eye To Die For

5 Must Have Eye Shadow Palettes For A Smokey Eye To Die For

It’s 4:45pm and already beginning to get dark outside. How do you handle this predicament of soul-sucking astronomical alignment? Really there are two options: succumb to the darkness and fall asleep right then and there, or turn up your eye makeup game and live like you’ve never lived before. Let’s choose the latter, everyone. Fall and winter are the perfect time of year to level up your eyeshadow routine and stay feeling empowered and strong through the darkness and cold. The smoky eye is your secret power source that will enable you to conquer all. With the modern miracle of pre-composed smoky eye palettes, you can get this ultra-strong look with a most basic understanding of eye anatomy and without looking like Ozzy Osbourne post very windy flight out of hell. Brushes at the ready:

1. Sephora Collection Mixology Eyeshadow Palette
