This weekend I went searching in vain hopes that I would find the Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance Palette. I really wanted this palette for the wedding last weekend, but honestly I am tired of waiting for it. Although now that I have said this it will probably get re-stocked this week, le sigh

I spent a lot of time at Ulta and consulting with my make up guru (She's Leaning In).  I eventually settled on the Tarte Tartelette 2 Palette In Bloom. I was really attracted to the color selection. My earrings I was wearing had hints of purples ad pinks so I wanted to incorporate that in my make up. I am not a super pink kind of gal, so when I do pink it is always more magenta and burgundy that bubblegum pink. I was told that Tarte shadows can be really hit or miss so I took a big risk.  

Turns out my risk was worth the reward. I really love these shadow colors. I am bit over all the browns for Fall. Like I get it, Fall= brown. I prefer to start whipping out some of the cool burgundys of Fall. I think being a redhead for so long has encouraged me to experiment more with color. I am working my color to a brighter blonde so I am hopeful these colors will still translate. Anyway, that was an aside. The colors are pigmented really well. You know how some shadows you have to sweep, sweep, sweep and keep sweeping to get the color to match what you see in the palette. I love that there is a mix of light shadows for day time and a couple of options to punch it up for night time. The darks are very potent, you need very little on the brush to go a long way. I like to layer the metallic colors or their matte counterparts to add a little sparkle to day time. 

For my wedding look I had funny girl on the brow, smarty pants on the lid, fire cracker on the crease and a blend of rebel and leader in the outer crease. 

What do you think? Leave me a comment below I would love to hear from you!
