How pretty is this palette? Forget about the actual eyeshadows, but the packaging is so pretty and sleek. I’ve been obsessing over this palette for a while now, but I didn’t want to cave. I didn’t want to want it…. I failed and you know, that’s okay. It’s okay to fail and buy yourself a gorgeous new palette with gorgeous new shades. Welcome to the family, Modern Renaissance.
Modern Renaissance Thoughts
Modern Renaissance is so beautful, and I really do love the shades. Some of the neutral shades are similar to the ones in my Bronze Kyshadow Palette, but there’s more variety and I love the couple of pink-ish shades. I am sure you all love how professional I sound describing these colors. Total expert. I think it has the necessary shades for an everyday look, but also a couple of shades that can be used for something more out there, night out or event.
Moreover, the shades I reach for the most are Warm Taupe and Antique Bronze. They go so beautiful together. It also makes for a really quick makeup look. There are some of the more shimmery shades like Bermeer and Primavera that I haven’t found much use for, but Love Letter and Venetian Red are stunning.
Finally, if you’re not familiar with the formula of Modern Renaissance, there are only a few things you should know. The shades are pigmented enough – meaning that they can be built up to a beautiful bold eye look, but you can also go in with a light hand for something more natural. Anastasia Beverly Hills is known for its blendable, easy to work with shadows, and that’s exactly this. Perfect for any beginner!
