If the title of this post strikes fear into your heart, makes you panic a little, and/or causes you to break into a cold sweat, you're not alone. While they might be pretty, eye shadow palettes with five, ten, or even more options can overwhelm even a seasoned makeup junkie. Whenever I get stuck due to eye shadow overload, I go back to the basics. Since we recently discussed eye shadow 101, all you have to do is pick out a base, crease, lid, and liner color (or whatever combination you want) from the palette.

Here are three of my favorites:
1. Urban Decay Naked 2
Although I don't think this is the "prettiest" of the Naked palettes, this is the one I reach for the most because it holds my favorite base, crease, and liner shades.
2. Lorac Pro
The most complete palette out there in my opinion. Equal parts matte and satin/metallic shades, there are plenty of color choices.
3. NARS NARSissist Blush, Contour, and Lip Palette
Finally, my entire face in a case. I love to use the darker blushes as eye shadow.
