They always say, there's no time like the present. In this case, that statement rings truer than ever. The holiday season calls for you kick your daily beauty regimen up a notch, and the best way to do just that is by switching out your daily one-swatch wonder for a palette of rich shimmering hues. Building a palette wardrobe of sorts will have you covered for any occasion that may arise during the most wonderful time of the year. Here are my picks for anyone looking to start amping up their eye makeup game, and best of all, these palettes work on almost all skin types and tones.

The Glimmering Gemstones - Tom Ford Eye Color Quad in 05 Silvered Topaz. The perfect palette to accustom yourself to the depths of the smokey eye world. The muted, but still rich, shades are super versatile that most can be worn day and night in many a variation. It's also great that it includes a matte espresso shade for some crease werk, and a shimmering champagne for adding some highlight effect.

The Platinum Smokey Shades - Chanel Les 4 Ombres in 246 Tisse Smoky. The perfect array of silvers and a sexy, satiny black to create a seamless smokey eye as precise as a work of art. These shadows work perfectly when swirled onto a dry brush, but if you're up for some extra intensity, a small wet brush will help define the crease and lower lash line with serious depth. Each shade is so multi-faceted, that they'd even look beautiful worn on their own should you be short on time.

The Rusted Bronzes - Charlotte Tilbury Luxury Palette in The Dolce Vita. The palette for creating a heavily bronzed lid with a touch of warm rusted elegance. The name of the shades speaks volumes to their effect, they create the doe-eyed allure of an Italian bombshell without having to put forth too much effort. Charlotte's already decoded the how-to of application right on the back of each compact.

The Edgy Satin Neutrals - Dior 5 Couleurs Eyeshadow Palette in 796 Cuir Cannage. This palette is stocked with rich, smooth, satiny neutrals with a bit of an edge. The deep purple adds depth and an unexpected element to an otherwise neutral eye, but even the bronze shades aren't your run-of-the mill. They're a bit more exciting, and if you're an eyeshadow newb, you'll appreciate their blendability.
