Modern Renaissance

Hi there! Today, I was inspired by the Modern Renaissance palette from Anastasia Beverly Hills. I was thinking of making an eye makeup which I would create with one palette only (I mean the eye part). I didn't want to create any natural or any colourful makeup. I was thinking about something in between.


The first step was the same as usual. I cleaned the whole face with micellar water before applying the makeup.

The real work begun with the foundation. I mixed up the Born This Way foundation from Too Faced with the Face and Body foundation from MAC and applied it with the 104/BUFFER brush. The Born This Way has a creamy medium-coverage and the Face and Body is water based with a pretty light one. Using them together I created a natural but perfect coverage.

I skip the powder during photoshoots usually, and I did it this time again.

I finished shaping this part with the contour and the blush. I chose the Natural Face palette from Too Faced this time and picked up the Pink Wink and the Sunny Honey shades with the 101/LUXE FACE DEFINER.

The last product on my face was the highlighter. I decided to use the Sun Dropped Glow Kit from Anastasia Beverly Hills and mixed up the Summer and the Moonstone shades. I applied them with the 129/LUXE FAN brush.


The best and the most important part of this makeup. If this isn't the first post you read on my blog, it may be boring for you to read this part because I always write it down in all of my makeup articles, BUT it's the best way to make the perfect eyebrows. I needed only one brush for this part the #12 from Anastasia Beverly Hills. The very first step is to comb out the eyebrows. To have them stay on their place, I used the Hydro Mastix Washable Spirit Gum from Kryolan. The second step is drawing the missing threads with the Dipbrow Pomade's Medium Brown shade from Anastasia Beverly Hills. It's important to draw only the threads, because this makes the natural eyebrow look.


As you see in the title, the only palette I used on my eyes was the Modern Renaissance from Anastasia Beverly Hills (concerning on the shades).

The first thing to apply was the Prep + Prime eyeshadow base primer from MAC. It helps to prolong the shades and keeps them vibrant all day.

I applied the Red Ochre shade on my outer and inner eyelids with the 234/SMOKY SHADER. The next shade I used was the Burnt Orange, which I needed on the crease, and worked with the 231/LUXE PETIT CREASE. The Primavera shade was the last on the middle of my eyelids. The 237/DETAIL SHADER was the best brush for this process, because I needed a small brush for a precise application. I blended the shades to create nice transitions. I used the 227/LUXE SOFT DEFINER brush for this step. On the lower eyelids I used only one shade, the Burnt Orange.

To emphasise my eyes even better, I decided to use the Waterproof Créme Color gel liner from Anastasia Beverly Hills. You can see it on my eyelids and waterline, too. It was applied with the 317/WING LINER, which is thin tipped and I can only recommend it, if you're looking for the right product to create pro eyeliner look.

Let's get on the lashes. I used the Lash Curler from MAC to have my lashes look longer than they are. Another thing this makeup needed were the false lashes and I tried out my new Natural Black Wispies from Ardell and glued them up with the Lash Glue Dark Tone from Huda Beauty.


We came to the last part. The product I used was the Matte Lipstick's Spice shade from Anastasia Beverly Hills and I applied it with the 331/PRECISION LIP brush. I know I came up with this at least a dozens of times, but I need to repeat myself again. The lipstick is something I always use to emphasise lips. The lips look bigger, healthier and you have that glowing look on them.

Time Spent: 1 hour and 30 minutes

I was thinking about to do more makeup looks using one palette only. Of course not for the whole makeup, but just for the eye. It's my favourite part and I would love to show you what can you achieve with your palettes (at least the palettes I currently have).

Thank you for reading my blog!
