Anastasia’s Beverly Hills makeup has been on my makeup wish list for the longest time, that’s why I am dedicating one post each to review the Shadow Couture World Traveller palette, and the next post will be on the Artist Palette.
Each palette is priced at CAD$39 before tax, 12 colours in each palette (shimmers and mattes), one dual-ended brush, and an interior mirror. Packaging isn’t heavy and quite sturdy, so you can definitely carry it around your purse when you’re travelling.
The colour payoff (swatch-based) are mostly pigmented, buttery, easy to blend. I applied a good eye base primer, and the colour build-up is just amazing.
My absolute favourite colours from the Shadow Couture are Morocco, Bellini, Pink Champagne, Chic, Azure, Intense Gaze, and Metallic.
Below are 2 looks I created. The first was using the Shadow Couture palette, and the second was a mix with the Artist palette. Makeup details are described below each picture.
1. I will say that this was my take on an Earthy smoky look. I used Soft Peach all over lid, Morocco on top and outer corner crease, Fudge on corner crease and a also used it to create a soft cut-crease effect, Spoiled on center of lid, Pink Champagne on inner corners, then Fudge on lower lash line.
2. Dubbed this the “Smoky Unicorn” on our Instagram account (@laregazze). This look was created in combination with the Artist Palette. I used Buttery all over lid, Blue Velvet on outer crease, Unicorn all over lid and on lower lash line, Azure as a transition colour, Heirloom to further accentuate the outer corners, then Pink Champagne in inner corners.
God knows that leopard pattern always has a special place in my heart, so I did not think twice to take this baby home (a.k.a I’m an impulsive buyer). I purchased this leopard skirt a while ago from Forever 21 and I cant wait to wear it again this summer! The weather has been very very hot lately in Vancouver and for some reason, this skirt reminds me of watermelon. Yes, the temperature has been so hot that I am now imagining watermelons! And perhaps you think so too?
For this post, I decided to style it up with my black off-shoulder crop top from H&M. As for my shoes, I’m wearing my all time favourite heels from Charles & Keith.
Hope you guys enjoy this summer as much as I enjoy pairing up this look for you!
