Look Like a Masterpiece with the Modern Renaissance Palette

By  |  0 Comments

Move over, Naked Palettes, there is a new eyeshadow in town and it’s beautiful. The Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance palette was recently released and has become very popular with vloggers. Anastasia Beverly Hills has become one of the beauty world’s most powerful brands, and their contour palettes and eyebrow products have quickly gained cult status.

This is their brand’s first permanent eyeshadow palette. The palette is $42 and can be found online or in Sephora stores. While this is still a pricey palette, it’s also $12 less than Urban Decay’s Naked palettes, which retail for $54 each. The Modern Renaissance palette has 14 shades. Three of those shades come in a metallic, pearl finish while the other 11 are matte. It also comes with a soft, dual-ended brush that works great for blending. This is definitely a great palette for the girls who like the Naked palettes but want something a little less sparkly and maybe more sophisticated.


The shades, which were inspired by the pigments used in Renaissance art, include warm neutrals, metallics, reds and berries, all of which blend beautifully. The formulas are creamy and don’t have much fallout. The colors have excellent pigmentation without being too bold. The colors look great on both light and dark skin tones, and the palette can be used to create both soft, dreamy day looks and sultry night looks.

If the intensity of some of the darker reds and berries frighten you, check out some of the numerous tutorials on Youtube to learn how to use the palette in a way that flatters you. Overall, I’d say this palette is an excellent choice for someone who wants to add a bit more color to their eyeshadows. It is definitely one I’ll be using this fall.

I'm an avid reader and love writing more than anything. My favorite authors include Stephen King, Neil Gaiman, and J.K. Rowling. I love fashion, and though you'd never tell by looking at me, I'm a horror movie junkie. Painting is one of my talents, and my ultimate career goal is to be an author.
