If You're New to Makeup, These 6 Eyeshadow Palettes Are a Great Place to Start

In the wise words of Marilyn Monroe: "A smile is the best makeup any girl can wear."

Let's be clear—you don'need makeup, but you probably want it. From a young age, most girls love playing around with lipsticks, eyeshadows and nail polishes. It's a fun way to express your creativity. So, if you're a newcomer to the makeup game and don't know where to begin, we'll keep it simple for you.

Keep reading for the six eyeshadow palettes you should start out with if you're new to makeup:

1. HipDot Bikini Bottom Eye Palette: $36

Why not start out with an impressive collab with Spongebob for your first palette? The colors are bright, exuberant and oh so sparkly. Plus (since we've tried this baby out for ourselves), we know it'll last all day long. The pigmentation is downright impressive—just imagine all the fun looks you can create!

2. Pixi Beauty Dream Shadow Palette: $32

With 28 colors in just one eyeshadow palette, Pixi covers all the bases. If you're new to makeup, it's best to start out with more neutral tones and then work your way into bright, fun shades. The shadows are buildable and look amazing on all skin types.
