So, I wanted my first “official” post to be about my favorite eye shadow palette! I definitely utilize it everyday, whether that’s for the amazing, smooth, and blendable transition colors or it is for their gorgeous, bright pink and purple tone shades. I absolutely LOVE the Anastasia Beverly Hills Renaissance palette. Now, I know it is a pretty old palette, and many more have been released since then (waiting to get my hands on the Jaclyn Hill Palette!!), however, I just had to highlight how truly blendable, charming, and stunning it is.
In the look above, I solely used the Renaissance palette. I love all things pink and glitter so it was fitting that this would be my first look here!
To start off, I used “Golden Ochre” and dusted it over my entire lid, to the brow bone. I like to do that because it ensures a smooth, matte base.
Afterward, I used “Raw Sienna” to blend into the inner to outer lid. This is my transition color. My favorite brush to do this with is my Morphe fluffy blending brush.
**Side note: Morphe brushes are my favorite!
Next, I dusted a little “Buon Fresco” in the outer lid of my eye, making sure not to go too outside the crease. This helps form a bit of a deeper shadow and transition from “Raw Sienna”. I keep packing this color on until there is a smooth transition between both colors and it is deep enough that it is noticeable.
Now for the fun color! Using a smaller Morphe dome shaped blending brush, I slowly began adding in “Love Letter” from the outer corner to the midpoint of my eye- where my iris is. Again, shadows can be a little tricky, so it is important to start off light, and build the color by consistently adding more. Make sure to keep this color inside your crease. After packing on the color to its desired brightness, I blended out the edges with the first Morphe fluffy blending brush I used.
Glitter time! Because this was a pink toned look, I decided to keep the glittery color with the same undertone. I applied “Vermeer” into my inner corner, until meeting my pink matte shadow. This was done using a flat Morphe shader brush. I like to use the smaller one, which helps guarantee a more precise application.
To blend the two colors together, I used the smaller Morphe dome brush to blend the two colors into a smooth transition.
I have attached the links to my favorite Morphe brush set as well as the Anastasia Beverly Hills Renaissance palette below!

After that, I just applied my favorite Kat Von Dee Tattoo Liner as well as Maybelline’s The Falsies Volume Express Mascara. That’s it for my eyes!
I hope this post helped you remember just how fabulous this palette is and tomorrow you’ll pull it out of the back of your drawer to use it.
Talk to you later guys!
