If there is one staple makeup product to have, a neutral eye palette is what I would recommend. A good neutral palette should be able to give you a full look with just the shadows in the palette.
What I look for in a neutral palette include: shimmery white or bright pink shade for highlighting, light pinks, shimmery gold, matte or semi-frosty taupe, and a matte black shade.
This Nude 'Tude palette by theBalm palette offers just that.... and more great options!
Don't get me wrong, I love my Urban Decay Naked palettes, but those can run you about $50 each. And this palette is not a "dupe" by any means, but it offers some similar everyday neutral shades that are just as great of quality as the UD palettes. There's also some great dark shades that can easily be used for any smokey eye if you prefer a more dramatic look.
Not to mention, any packaging by theBalm is super cute!
