Anastasia Beverly Hills Sultry Palette
Anastasia Beverly Hills

The holidays are in full swing, and you know what that means. It’s time to spend all our money on makeup! Yes, it’s tempting to buy all the most amazing stuff for ourselves, but it’s the giving season. So, we’re actually talking spending all our money on the most gorgeous palettes to gift our friends. Luckily, we know exactly what they’re guaranteed to love, and if you’re looking for suggestions, you’re in the right place.

Sultry Eyeshadow Palette – Anastasia Beverly Hills ($45)

One of the first thing to sell out on the ABH website during their Black Friday sale was this palette. And you definitely don’t need to ask why, because it’s obvious. This highly-pigmented, limited edition palette is a total show stopper. It’s got both great mattes and gorgeous metallics that anyone can use.

Alternatively, the ABH Norvina palette is also pretty popular as well.

Sex, Gold and Chocolate Set – Too Faced ($49)

On sale at Nordstrom right now for $41.65 is this incredible set from Too Faced. Not only does it come with a gorgeous palette, it also includes a full-sized mascara and eyeshadow primer. In other words, it’s everything one needs to look absolutely fabulous.

Mini Mthrship Palettes – Pat McGrath ($55 each or $125 for a set of three)

Surprise three of your friends with these incredibly luxurious mini eye palettes. While the big Pat McGrath palettes are $125 for 10 pans of color, these are $55 for 6. (The shadows are the same size though.) If you’ve got multiple people on your list (or you want to keep one for yourself), that’s perfect! You can snag all three – Dark Star, Bronze Temptation, and Metalmorphosis – for $125 on the Pat McGrath website.


Killawatt Foil Freestyle Highlighter Palette – Fenty Beauty by Rihanna ($54)

Give the gift of glow with this gorgeous highlighter palette. While, yes, it’s a highlighter palette, it’s totally eye-safe, so it can absolutely be used for illuminating an eye look.

The New Nude Eyeshadow Palette – Huda Beauty ($65)

While this is our most expensive pick, it’s also pretty game-changing. It includes 18 incredibly pigmented shades – 10 matte shades, 4 reflective, 2 glitter, one pearl, and one base shade. It’s easy to use, highly rated, and ultimately super-coveted this season.
