13 eyeshadow palettes that will make every nude lover drool

13 eyeshadow palettes that will make every nude lover drool

When shopping for the ultimate eyeshadow palette, it’s easy to get caught up in colour. But the real heroes wear capes of taupe, chocolate, copper, and cream. And while they’ll always come a time when neon yellow, lime green and royal blue need calling upon, you should never underestimate the power of natural shades.

These are the tones that will make your eyes look bigger and brighter, create shadow where depth is needed, and light to emphasise. They’re the failsafe shades that save us on the morning commute and never let us down when a glamorous occasion calls.

And if you too think nothing is better than nude, get ready for your jaw to drop as we round up the most stunning, mouth-watering and wonderfully versatile, natural eyeshadow palettes on the market…

M.A.C Eyeshadow x 9: Burgundy Times Nine

“This is the best selection of colours mac has ever done for a palette. It is super versatile, it is possible to pull out neutral looks for an everyday basis and also flashy-fancy looks for a night out. The best plum colours are there, and I loooove to pair star violet with sketch.” – bh member AP1992

Too Faced Natural Neutral Eyeshadow Collection

One of Mecca’s best-sellers and for good reason. Too Faced are known for their rich pigments and these shades are irresistable. Our eyelids are ready to be smothered in ‘Sexpresso’ (top right).

Available at Mecca.


Charlotte Tilbury Exagerr-eyes

This quad is so popular, it’s hardly ever in stock. So if you see it – nab it! We bow down to the reddish-brown and rose gold combination that makes our eyes look wider and more awake (even on four hours sleep).

Maybelline New York Burgundy Bar Eyeshadow

This bad boy won the 2019 Glosscar for best palette and with good reason. Bh member Beckiiboo says, “I was honestly shocked when I tried this pallet as I wasn’t expecting much.. however I was pleasantly surprised! The pigment is amazing and the colours work really well and blend amazingly together!”

Huda completely reinvented the nude palette category with this stunning array of dusky pinks, shimmer-drenched coppers and peach to caramel mattes. The next time someone says nude is boring, show them this.

You’ve always got to burn the first pancake. While we love the OG Naked Palette, it was just so much better the second time around.

Available at Mecca.


Australis Neutralize Nude Eyeshadow Palette

Is it warm in here or is it just us? Australis’ has nailed it with these tasty tangerines and terracottas.

Doesn’t this just make you drool? The textures are smoother than satin sheets, too. 

Available at Sephora.


Max Factor Masterpiece Nude Palette

The bh tribe has spoken. “If you only ever want one neutrals palette, especially for work, I’d highly recommend this. The shadows are buttery, pigmented and don’t smudge everywhere and, for me, aren’t too shiny”, says bh member Lizzea.

Tarte Toasted Eyeshadow Palette

Toasted is an understatement, this palette is fire.

Available at Sephora.


Chi Chi Glamorous Nudes Eyeshadow Collection

An affordable favourite of our bh members, some whom consider it as a pretty good dupe for Urban Decay’s smokey palette. “It’s great for people with hooded eyes to create lovely, open-eyed looks!”, says bh member iver2x
