Recently when I went to Howletts Animal Park, I used my Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance palette for the first time.
I didn’t have a particular idea of what look I wanted to achieve, but my makeup turned out to be warm, glowing and summery.
Below is some photos from when I went to Howletts.
And now it’s time to recreate the look! The focus is on glowing cheeks and warm tones for the eyes.
I started with a slanted Eco Tools blush brush and applied Laura Geller’s Baked Blush-N-Brighten in the shade Tropic Hues to the apples of my cheeks and blended out.
This blusher is a pretty mix of coral, peach and pink tones and is highly pigmented, so I built up the colour gradually.
I then used Sleek’s Solstice Highlighting Palette and applied the warm orange shade called Equinox.
All of the shades are highly pigmented, so I used a fan brush to lightly apply the highlighter to the top of my cheeks. I then blended the highlighter in slightly with my fingers and a damp beauty sponge, to soften the look.
Moving on to eyes. I started with a flat packing brush and applied Tempera, which is a creamy off white, on to my eyelids and just into the crease.
I then used a slanted/angled brush and applied the vibrant orange Realgar tightly into my crease, before blending out with a fluffy blending brush.
I then used the same blending brush to apply a combination of Burnt Orange and Raw Sienna into the crease and again blended out. I forgot to take a photo of this stage!
The final eyeshadow I went in with, is the warm golden shade Primavera. I went back to using a packing brush and applied this over my whole eyelid, being careful not to go too far into the crease. I also took a smaller brush to apply Primavera into my inner corners to open up my eyes.
I finished my eyes with a couple of coats of Benefit’s Roller Lash mascara.
Before finishing my overall look, with Essence’s XXXL Shine Lipgloss in the colour Life Is Sweet.
And here’s the finished look!
