The time has come to trade summer dresses in for fall sweaters. This swap also goes for your makeup palettes. While you’re shopping for the perfect fall collection this season, be sure to include these must-have palettes into your makeup collection.
Sephora Collection: Color Flip (Value $55)
What it is: It’s a compact with three tiers of color, including eight eye shadows, eight lip glosses, one bronzer and one blush. It’s compact, easy to carry, and full of gorgeous color. Plus, the palette is small enough to go anywhere but big enough to hold a range of great shades. Deep purple, greens and beiges let you create a smart look during the day. Other after work shades allow you to pump it up at night.
Where to find it: Online at www.sephora.com/browse/product.jhtml?id=P291425&categoryId=C8330&shouldPaginate=true or at any Sephora location.
Urban Decay Naked Palette (Value $48)
What it is: 12 gorgeous neutral eye shadows, ranging from delicate champagnes to dark, gritty gunmetal. The palette also features five new shades with names like Darkhorse, Virgin and Buck. The unique part about Urban Decay is that it has a range of textures—everything from glitter to shimmer to matte. The bonus to this mirrored case also includes a professional-quality, cruelty-free Good Karma Eyeshadow Brush and a travel-size Eyeshadow Primer Potion in original formula. Experiment with office-appropriate neutrals, fall leave-inspired greens or sultry smokiness.
Where to find it: Online at urbanydecay.com or in Georgia at most Ultra Store Locations or Sephora.
Dior ‘5 Couleurs’ Eyeshadow Palette (Value $59)
What is it: Dior’s best-selling eye palette creates a seductive range of rich, versatile colors designed for easy application and long wear.

Prima Donna Beauty Tip: Let the changing leaves inspire your makeup palette of fall colors. You can’t go wrong with a warm brown or olive green. This year also add a little spice into your makeup collection by introducing some plums and purples. October pumpkins even serve as inspirations for various orange shades to try. As always, dare to be different—Prima Donna style! For more beauty tips or to schedule a consultation or makeup lesson, email Dye at email@example.com.
