It’s been a couple of weeks since the television show Euphoria completely stole our hearts, and to be quite honest—we’re still not over how glam each character’s face looked. Each and every Sunday, we continued to be blown away by the bright and colorful makeup on Zendaya, Barbie Ferreira, and Hunter Schafer. With Alexa Demie and makeup artist Donni Davy using a mood board filled with the likes of Showgirls and Nina Simone, how could they go wrong? Along with fellow makeup artist Kirin Rider, a phenomenon and cult following grew at hyper speed—a sea of bright, flashy looks were all over our newsfeeds and saved pins, practically overnight.
Don’t get us wrong, we’re definitely here for glitter, crazy lashes, and the occasional gluing of a few pearls on our eyelids. But we think the best Euphoria starter pack begins with eyeshadow that’ll step up any makeup look.
Below, we’ve rounded up the best of the best eyeshadow palettes that’ll keep you standing out through the fall!
1. Huda Beauty Desert Dusk Palette ($ 65)
This palette screams ‘Euphoria’ and nothing else. From its glittery browns to its intergalactic turquoises, there are about a million and a half reiterations of the show you could create. With immediate color payoff, you have 18 (yes, 18) shades in four unique textures: glitter, matte, shimmery pearl, and chrome to pay homage with.
2. Natasha Denona Eyeshadow Palette 5 ($ 48)
A smokey, sultry eye look is done perfectly with Natasha Denona’s Eyeshadow Palette 5. These shadows pair together on skin seamlessly, and the formula is super-pigmented, blendable, and extremely long-lasting.
3. Lime Crime Venus XL Ii Eyeshadow Palette ($ 56)
Whimsical and romantic are the theme of some of the characters on the show, and what better way to embody Jules than by using Lime Crime’s Venus XL Ii Eyeshadow Palette? 18 all-new shades on top of four rich, buttery-smooth formulas? Matte, metallic, foil and sheer iridescent shades galore? Say no more.
4. Urban Decay Naked Heat Palette Naked Heat ($ 54)
The OG eyeshadow palette still reigns supreme, and we’re looking forward to using this guy forever. This amber-hued neutral eyeshadow colors will be used for any sort of firey look.
5. Pat McGrath Mothership III: Subversive Palette Eyeshadow Palette ($ 125)
Mother Pat McGrath’s products could solely be used on the set of Euphoria, and we think that the Mothership III Palette is ideal for even the most grandiose of makeup ideas. Violets, blues, and greens saturate the lids while matte neutrals help fade the outer corners of any completed look.
6.MAC Girls Qween Supreme Palette ($ 41)
With MAC’s Girls Queen Supreme Palette, we’re easily able to go big or go home. A neutral eye look is achievable, but if you really want to go for it, you can pack on a brighter shade and impress. Bonus points for the highlighter included.
7. The Crème Shop So Shady Eyeshadow Palette All Day Every Day ($ 15)
If you’re more of a Cassie, try on the Crème Shop’s So Shady Eyeshadow Palette on for size. This to die for collection boasts four easy to wear eyeshadows that are a mix of shimmer and matte. Easy to apply, fast, and buildable—we’re always ready to put on a natural glam.
8. Morphe 39S Such A Gem Artistry Palette ($ 35)
32 shades of bright pinks, stunning purples, and gorgeous neutral shades fill this palette. We love that there’s some fun glitter included, making spicing up your look take no time at all.
9. Revlon ColorStay Looks Book Palette 910 Player ($ 6)
Finding the eyeshadow to recreate Maddy’s iconic game night makeup was no easy feat to accomplish. Thankfully, Revlon was able to take us from 0 to 100 with their ColorStay Looks Book Player Palette. The highly pigmented formula builds an intense color payoff all while maintaining a smooth texture. The best part? 24 hours of wear.
