The Best Multi-Purpose Makeup Palettes

Top Multipurpose Makeup Palettes

We struggle to think of a makeup item more beautiful than a palette full of gleaming, glistening, smoky, bright and bold shades winking back at us. But that’s generally in the eyeshadow department…what about face palettes? While there have been a few cult hits in the past few years, face palettes don’t really get the same love as eye palettes, but they are just as handy, and just as worthy of a place in your collection.

Here are our picks for some of the best multi-purpose makeup palettes to have you concealed, blurred, contoured and glowed-up in 2019.

Too Faced Natural Face Palette ($44)

This palette is so freaking pretty in every way. You get six different powder pans: 2 highlighters, 2 blushes and 2 bronzing powders in matte, shimmer and satin. However, it is most suited for light, medium and medium-dark complexions. We hope they come out with a deeper version! 

You can shade your eyes, sculpt the face, flush the cheeks and highlight…all with one palette. The formula has been designed for a natural, buildable application so it’s great for casual, pared-down glam looks.

Hourglass Ambient Lighting Palette ($62)

Hourglass powders…come on, they’re so good, and worth the money if the formula works for you. In this palette, you get 3 powders, all of which are extremely finely milled and made with blurring, glow-enhancing formulas.

This is a palette for anyone who holds a flawless, satiny base as the utmost feature in their beauty routine.

Depending on your skin tone you can subtly contour, blur and glow all with this little wonder palette.

Smashbox Cali Contour Palette ($39)

This is a really well thought-out face palette. It has 6 powder pans with bronze, highlight, and blush in matte and shimmer formulas. It’s the kind of palette which you can use to complete the entire face and add depth to the eyes.

This is ideal for girls and guys who love a bronzed, sculpted and glowy complexion without having to open a zillion different compacts.

Stila Correct and Perfect Palette ($45)

Stila has created a color-correcting concealer and setting powder palette to completely even out the skin tone. Color theory has been artfully put to use to cancel out redness, sallowness and purple shadows.

You’ve got peach, orange, green, lavender, pink and yellow shades strategically place all over the face for an even, clear base. Perfect for anyone who is very particular about the flawlessness of their base. 

Maybelline FaceStudio Master Blush Color and Highlight Kit ($12.99)

And finally an affordable option! Good old Maybelline has created this four-pan blush and highlight palette. It’s not for concealing, evening out or contouring, but it’s all you need for adding color and light. Peachy, mauvey and plummy blush shades and a pinky-champagne highlight can even be used to warm up the eyes.

We hope you’ve found something on this list to answer your face palette prayers! Multi-purpose makeup palettes are a great way to save money and take a bit of bulk out of your collection by replacing lots of little products with one go-to item. Have fun shopping, concealing, sculpting, blushing and glowing!
