I’m back at it. My first makeup tutorial and my first glam look since I started my dental restoration. I’m half way done so don’t judge the teeth yet, those are temps. Anyway, I was dying to play with the Rivera Palette and the shade called Seaside caught my attention because of it’s unique shift that sadly doesn’t translate in photographs. Of course the vibrant pinks and purples called to me too but this look is a little more tame. I was still getting my makeup groove back and getting a feel for the palette.
So if you want to see how I got this Spring time glam using the Anastasia Beverly Hills new Rivera Palette, just keep reading below.
The star of today’s show is the ABH Rivera Palette. I mean, look at this beauty.
Those colors are gorgeous. You would think I would straight for the hot pink and purple but nope, that odd little seaside shade pulled me in. In some lights it looks silver, like in the pictures but in person it’s a silvery lilac with a really cool golden shift. I thought it would pair beautifully with the softer peaches and pinks.
I started this look with brows done and eyes primed with concealer then set lightly with translucent powder. I went under the brow bone with the matte white called Sails from the Rivera palette.
Next, I went in with Estate, a matte soft pastel peachy pink on a large fluffy brush as my transition shade.
Estate was a bit softer than I was expecting but works nice for blending out shades.
To build more depth in the transition and start bringing in some color I went in with Coastline, a matte pastel soft peach on the same fluffy brush just slightly lower down and blending it into Estate.
Next, I went in on a smaller fluffy brush with Monte Carlo, matte cool mid-tone pink lower into the crease area and blended into Coastline.
I blended out Monte Carlo with Coastline and did a little back and forth between the two shades.
To deepen up the outer V and add some depth to the look I went in with Palm which is a lovely matte dark chocolate brown pressed pigment. To apply Palm, I used a dense packing brush.
I blended Palm into the outer portion of the lid and into the Monte Carlo, again hopping back and forth between Palm and Monte Carlo until the blend was seamless.
Moving on to the lid, I cut the crease with some concealer on a flat brush about a third of the way across leaving the outer most portion of the lid deep with the matte brown.
On the lid, I patted the shade Seaside, a Duo Chrome silver with a subtle blue shift according the ABH. I see gold and lilac, me.
Seaside went all over the lid, merging into Palm.
I blended a touch more Palm on the outer corner to so the transition between the shades was smooth.
Next, I added some winged liner to give it a little something extra.
Moving on to the lower lash line.
I decided to go in with a little bit of Cannes, the matte bright violet purple pressed pigment just along the outer part of the lower lash line.
I blended in some of Monte Carlo on the inner blank part and married it onto the purple.
And did some more blending with Coastline to pull in some of the peach tones.
I finished off the eyeshadow but adding a pale liner to the waterline and highlighting the inner corner with Pink Heart from the Moon Child Glow Kit which I also used on my cheek bones. Looks like I added some more Coastline and Monte Carlo to lower lash line as well.
I finished the eyes with some faux mink lashes from Ardell and mascara.
For the face. I used Anastasia Beverly Hills Moon Child Glow Kit in Pink Heart as my highlighter and Milani Rose Blush in Tea Rose as my blush. On the lips is Too Faced Melted Liquid Lipstick in Queen B topped with Wet N Wild Color Icon Zodiac Lip Gloss in Pisces.
And here is the finished look. Nothing too crazy. I just wanted to feel pretty after a week of pain and misery. Dental stuff is no fun. I can’t wait until it’s over. I gotta get some glam looks in where I can while I am between appointments and getting a break to heal.
In case you missed my last post here. I started a YouTube and I am hoping to attempt some tutorials on there. Be patience with me though, I am still figuring out how I want to set up lighting and all that fun stuff. I am going to try vlogging in the mean time, just random clips to get the hang of using YouTube and editing video. This is all new to me. You can see more about that in the linked post and the my first little vlog.
