YouTube – Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance Palette Makeup Tutorial!

Hi everyone! I’m back again with another YouTube video – I enjoyed filming the first one so much I pretty much got straight into filming my next one!

As  some of you will know I recently made an order with Sephora and one of the items I ordered was the Modern Renaissance palette by Anastasia Beverly Hills. I am seriously loving this palette – it’s absolutely beautiful, full of warm-toned shades and perfect for summer. So of course, I had to film a makeup tutorial for you guys!

I’m hoping to keep posting at least one video a week – this is my second this week so i’m going to try my best to keep this up!

Here is a link to the video and I’ve also embedded it below: https://youtu.be/_gFXpjOjiAg

 

Thank you so much for watching – if any of you guys have a YouTube channel then please leave a link below so I can subscribe to you! 🙂

Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance Palette – Swatches and First Impressions!

Hi everyone! I hope you are all well. Today I received the new Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance palette that I ordered from Sephora, so I wanted to show you guys the palette and swatches with my first impressions of the product.

The palette itself is beautiful, a lilac velvet with white and gold lettering. It’s very pretty packaging and also very simple, with a magnetic closure.

The palette contains 14 shadows and a dual-ended brush – I have had one of these brushes in another ABH palette and they’re really good to add to your collection, they’re very soft and apply and blend shadows well. One end is a fluffy blending brush and the other is a more precise brush, for applying shadow on the lid or blending underneath the eyes.

The shadows are pretty much all very warm-toned, which I love as I don’t own a palette with a lot of warm shades all in one place. There are a lot of pink, orange and red-toned shadows, so it will be really easy to match together shadows to create lots of different looks. The palette contains a lot of shades that are perfect for summer and there is a mixture of mattes and shimmers, so this palette has the perfect mixture of different shadows and the included brush makes it travel-friendly, too.

Now for the most exciting part – the swatches! All of the shades were easy to swatch and have a lovely, pigmented formula. Here are the two rows swatched separately with each shade labelled:

Bottom row:

As you can see, the shades are all lovely and the pigmentation of each shadow really shows up in the swatches. I love the shimmery shades, Primavera and Vermeer, and the bottom row is my favourite – the shades are all so beautiful and I love the range of rich, orangey-red tones. My favourite shadows are Burnt Orange, Red Ochre, Venetian Red and Primavera and all shadows seem to have excellent pigmentation – I can’t find one shadow that doesn’t live up to the rest in terms of formula and colour pay-off.

I haven’t used the shadows to create an eye look yet, but will definitely be trying them out so keep a look out for another post soon! I can’t wait to try a few different looks out and have high hopes from the swatches, as they all seem very soft and easy to blend. I’m so pleased that I decided to buy this palette and think it is an excellent addition to the collection of any beauty lover!
