Hey! So, I had a request to try and do a Soft Natural look using the ABH Modern Renaissance palette and that’s what I’ve done today! Well, tried to anyway.
This was the look I came up with. I was intending to do a more natural look but I think it ended up looking slightly more intense than I was hoping. Lesson learnt- ALWAYS use a light hand with this palette. Literally, the only downside with this palette (if this is even possible) is the intense pigment! I know, it sounds daft- can you really have too much pigment? NO.
(Please ignore how bad my lashes are looking in today’s post, they would not work with me!) As always, I started with my eyes. I primed using my Urban Decay Primer Potion in Original and set using Tempera. I only used 3 shadows in the palette to actually create the look. For the crease, I used Raw Sienna on a fluffy blending brush from Zoeva. I buffed this well into my crease as it is the only shadow that is going to make the look have more dimension. I then wanted to carve out the first half of my eyelid and to do this I used my concealer. Using my Mac Pro Longwear concealer in NW15, I pumped the tiniest bit of this onto the back of my hand and used a precise flat brush to carve out the area I wanted. Make sure you don’t look up when doing this as the concealer could transfer to places you don’t want it to! I then set the concealer using Tempera.
For my lid colour, I first went in with Primavera and applied this directly onto the middle of my eyelid using my finger. For the inner part of my eyelid, I used Vermeer. I, again, applied this with my finger.
As I have naturally ginger lashes, mascara doesn’t usually look that great on me without having liner on. Because of this reason, I decided to use my liner and simply draw a line across my lash line, not winging it out. For my inner corner and brow highlight, I used my Mary Lou. I also ran Raw Sienna under my lash line for a smoky effect and to finally finish off the eyes, I applied my Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara.
