If there is one thing I love, it is a good neutral eyeshadow palette. A good neutral palette is great for everything from creating subtle non-makeup looks to a glamourous sparkly eye. The versatility of these palettes makes them essential for everyone’s makeup bag.
Because there are tons of options, it can be a bit overwhelming to pick the best palette for your budget. But don’t worry, I’ve done the hard work of trying and testing for you. Here are the 5 best neutral eyeshadow palettes on the market.
Natasha Denona Glam Eyeshadow Palette
Natasha Denona makes some very beautiful eyeshadow palettes, but the price puts them out of reach for most makeup lovers. Thankfully, she has started releasing min and midi palettes so we can test out the beautiful shadows without the $100+ investment.
This cool-toned palette is truly one of a kind. Instead of shade names, this palette tells you where to apply them. That means anyone can get a beautiful eye look, even beginners. If $65 is still more than you want to spend or if you are looking for a smaller palette, consider picking up the Mini Glam instead.

Anastasia Beverly Hills Soft Glam Eyeshadow Palette
Neutral palettes don’t need to be 100% tan and brown eyeshadow shades. This beautiful palette from ABH also includes oranges, mauves, and pinks. The 14 shades in this palette include 9 matte and 5 metallic shades that look amazing on most skin tones.
The Soft Glam Palette looks very colorful at first glance. However, the warm tones blend out to give a soft and natural look. Another thing to love about this palette is its versatility. It is perfect for day-to-day, you can make a smokey eye for the evening, and it’s a go-to for wedding looks.
PS. There is a limited edition Mini Soft Glam available at Sephora.

PATRICK TA Major Dimension Eyeshadow Palette
While it is the most expensive palette on the list with only 12 shades, this palette is worth the splurge if you love warm tones.
Yes, this palette is more expensive than most, but Patrick Ta’s formulas are perfect. You can make a super glam look with metallic shades and pearl toppers. For every day, you can do very pretty one-and-done looks with the palette as well.

Revlon Illuminance Crème Shadow, Not Just Nudes
Cream shadows are still having a moment. While you could buy pots of individual cream shadows, this palette is a much more affordable option. You get four colors for around $7.
This cute little palette is easy to use and since it is so small you can bring it with you anywhere. The Illuminance Crème Shadow Palettes are available in multiple colorways but Nit Just Nudes and Skinlights are both neutral options.

e.l.f. Bite-Size Palette in Cream & Sugar
Who doesn’t love e.l.f products? They have a wide range of products at really great prices. This particular palette might not make many looks, but at $3 we are willing to overlook that. We plan on picking up Pumpkin Pie for additional complimenting shades.

If You Can Only Pick One Neutral Palette
Five palettes might not be a lot for a blogger, but I know for the average person, you probably only want one neutral palette. If you can only pick one, I recommend picking either the Natasha Denona Glam palette or the ABH Soft Glam. If you like cool tones pick the Natasha Denona and if you love warm shades opt for the ABH Soft Glam.
Now that you know my top five, leave a comment with your favorite neutral eyeshadow palette.
