Review on the Modern Renaissance Palette and eye look.

I’m sure you’ve all heard of this palette by now because it is everywhere ! And I can honestly say this is by FAR my favourite palette of all time.If you follow me on snapchat and watch my tutorials you will know that I love creating eye looks with burnt oranges and  cranburry shades.Its my favourite eye look on me because oranges make blue eyes pop! and I have blue eyes.

 Ok so lets get on with the Review !
So this palette has 14 eyeshadows that are a mix of oranges /pink and reds.It has mostly matte shades and the pigmentation is amazing in this palette even without an eyeshadow base.

Lets take a look at all the shades.
  1. Tempera is the first shade and it is a light beige with a little sheen.
  2. Raw Sienna is one of my favourite shades its a medium brown shade which is the perfect transition shade.
  3. Golden Ochre is a beautiful shade its mostly matte but has some golden undertones.
  4. Burnt Orange is my favourite shade its orange obvs hence the name it has warm undertones and a matte finish.
  5. Vermeer is the next shade its a perfect inner highlight colour , its a bright peachy shade with a sheen.
  6. Primavera is the last shade on this picture  its also a peachy colour but with more golden undertones its a lightly metallic finish.
  1. Buon Fresco is the first shade on this picture and its a light mauve shade with a matte finish.
  2. Red Ochre is a gorgeous shade its a reddish brown with warm undertones and again matte finish which are my favourite types of eyeshadow finishes 
  3.  Antique Bronze is a dark brown with reddish undertones.
  4.  Venetian red is a more muted shade to love letter its still matte.
  5.  Love letter is as cute as the name is a dark berry pink with cool undertones and its the perfect shade.
  6.  Warm taupe is a lovely shade to have a clear base its a taupe-brown and matte finish
  7.  Cyprus umber is a deep brown with warmer undertones and a matte finish perfect to darken up the outer V
  8.  Realgar is a medium -dark orange-brown shade  and is perfect I love it for making the perfect smokey eye.
As you can see I have been using mine a little too much and its well loved.
When I first felt the brush I thought it felt really cheap and plasticily  but once I used it I fell in love its the best blending brush I have ever used and I’ve used a lot!And the other side of the brush is brilliant for packing on shades and for blending shades on the bottom lash line.
I can already tell this palette will be hitting pan before I know and it will be very used on a day to day routine!
For the eye look I created .


After doing my brows I placed Tempera all over my lid to have a white base to make the colours more vibrant.

I then placed vermeer on my brow bone to highlight it and also in the inner corner.
I then started blending raw sienna into my crease and just above it as I have hooded eyelids this will give the look of a higher crease.

Over that shade I blended in the shade burnt orange this is the most perfect shade ever im obsessed ! At this stage your eye should look something like this 

The next step is to darken up that outer V and just to give the eye a bit more dimension and shape. I used Red Ochre with the blending brush that came with the palette. I blended that just in the outer V.

 Like so 
 it should look like this then.
     Finally I added the shade Primavera to the center of my eye .

I then added liner and made a wing and also brought it in the inner corner a bit.I used the Kiko Gel Liner and I love this liner.
Popped on some lashes these ones are the BOMB there only 3 euro ?? Unreal! 
And then there ya go 
Such an easy eye look 
Hope you all enjoyed and if anyone else has this palette do let me know!
