8 Makeup Palettes For Lazy-Day Perfection

Sure, primping is fun — but we could do without the myriad products it can sometimes involve, especially when the weather warms up and we’re hoping to travel a bit lighter. The obvious solution? Makeup palettes, the supposed overachievers of the makeup world. While many claim to have everything you need to create an entire beauty look, often you find there’s only one color that’s actually worth using — which totally defeats the purpose of investing in a palette in the first place. 

Thankfully, this season is offering up some gorge collections that will lighten your load — and we promise there isn’t one dud shade in the mix. From rainbow eye shades (one of the biggest trends for spring) to waterproof colors for your entire face, these all-in-one sets will get you gorgeous in a snap. Scroll through to meet your makeup multitasker match.


If you’re a lover of neutral eye shades, you need to pick up this new set toute de suite. These six shades will majorly pump up your look, and are proof-positive that neutrals can in fact look hella sexy. 

NARS And God Created The Woman Set, $59, available at Sephora.


Truth time: We’ve been waiting with bated breath for Bobbi Brown’s Lilac Rose collection ever since she dropped the hint to us backstage at Fashion Week last fall. Now that it’s arrived, we’re smitten — and we’re going to have a hard time wearing anything else on our lids this spring. 

Bobbi Brown Lilac Rose Eye Palette, $60, available at Nordstrom.


This all-in-one, summery kit provides everything you need to create the perfect fresh-faced date look.

Inspired by water-ballet group The Aqualillies, this paraben-free (and waterproof, naturally) palette will add the perfect amount of color to your face for a glam day at the beach. FYI, that deep teal makes a seriously amazing eyeliner. 

Aqualillies for Tarte Amazonian Clay Waterproof Eye And Cheek Palette, $38, available at Tarte.


These gorgeous eye shades remind us of a stormy spring sky — blend them in endless combinations for a plethora of pretty wear-anywhere looks.

Even if you’ve shied away from bright palettes in the past, we promise you will love the rich, velvety shades in this package. Try the orange as an accent in your crease, or the aqua as a pop of color on the lower lash line. 

Lorac Glogetter Palette, $20, available at Ulta.


WIth five percent of proceeds going towards fighting unregulated shark-fin trading, this lovely palette (with a mix of eye shades and cheek shades) creates a beautiful summer face — with benefits for a very worthy cause.
