Stars like Scarlett Johansson and Thandie Newton rocked this palette to glorious effect on the Emmys red carpet. Take a look at their makeup from the night and you'll get a pretty good idea of just how versatile this palette is. The pinks and corals are about as high-impact and arresting as they come and they're perfectly complemented by a lovely curation of bronzes, golds and warm browns.
Catrice Paradise Desert Eyeshadow Palette, $14.99
We're in love! This palette is home to a veritable rainbow of shades, perfectly coordinated to create a wide array of gorgeous eye looks. Focus on the upper right corner for a sunset-hued smoky eye, or the bottom left corner for a fun, vibrant purple look — the options are endless. The color payoff is great, especially on the shimmery shades and there are enough neutrals included that you can use the palette for daytime looks too.
Anastasia Beverly Hills Sultry Eyeshadow Palette, $45
The glittery shades in this palette are so pretty it's not even fair (and the buttery mattes ain't too bad either). Plus, since this new option features cool-toned shades, you don't have to feel guilty about adding it to your growing collection of Anastasia Beverly Hills eyeshadow palettes.
Shiseido Essentialist Eye Palette in Jizoh Street Reds, $34
Shiseido recently relaunched and reformulated its entire makeup collection and the new-and-improved eyeshadow palettes are gorgeous. We're especially enjoying the Jizoh Street Reds quad with its wearable red, orange-y gold and two neutrals — it's absolutely perfect for fall.
