These are all versatile and can be used for a dark and dramatic look or for something more everyday appropriate. Make sure you comment your favorite down below. Enjoy!

For some reason, nobody ever hypes up Lorac in general. The brand has a variety of different eyeshadow palettes that are available in department stores like Kohl’s, and beauty stores like Ulta.
