I have been waiting to get my hands on this palette and today, I can finally bring you my thoughts.  After months of waiting eagerly after setting my eyes on the palette personally with Mario himself, I could barely contain myself.  The Master Palette by Mario Dedivanovic from Anastasia Beverly Hills is quite a beaut.  I’m exciting to share my own little back story regarding this palette, so hold on tight as I take you on the journey.

Ah, in all of its gorgeous beauty, I finally have my hands on this palette… yay me.  The Master Palette was created by the famed makeup artist to the stars – Mario Dedivanovic.  If you are not sure who he is, I’ll give you a little information on him.  Mario is best known for working with the Kardashian family and celebrities like Jennifer Lopez and Chrissy Teigen.  He and Norvina (Claudia) from Anastasia Beverly Hills made mention of a palette in the works many months ago, but no one really got a good look at it till August or so.  I met with Mario at a Master Class in August where I had the opportunity to be one of two people in a class of over 80 to see the palette live and in color.  I even had the opportunity to swatch the palette, but out of respect for Mario, I didn’t take any photos of the palette and was just overwhelmed with excitement that I was given the opportunity to do so.  A few weeks later, Mario posted the palette on his Snapchat and Instagram and everyone was able to see what it looked like prior to being released the first week of October.

Now, to be honest, if I hadn’t seen the palette first hand with my own two eyes, I would have swooned over it some… but probably wouldn’t have made the purchase and pick it up.  I am a fan of Anastasia Beverly Hills Palettes (I own at least 5 of them), but if I were just looking at images online, I would have thought to skip it since the colors are so similar to those from palettes I already owned.  But, that was not the case, I did see the palette before most of the World and the colors are those that I knew I would use – so I NEEDED IT!

Let’s talk about the packaging.  This palette has the same type of casing and packaging as other palettes that Anastasia Beverly Hills has created – but it comes an all black casing with gold detailing.  If you know anything about me, then you know that the packaging alone may have won me over… I love black and gold.  While simple, I think overall it offers much of what ABH palettes do, portable, not too bulky, easy to travel with and able to take a beating when traveling.  Since this is a palette that I know Mario takes on the road, I can see the durability and purpose in the packaging in its self.

The colors, oh hello colors.  This palette honestly offers fairly basic shades, right?  Well… yes, and no!  The shades are definitely neutral and wearable – which I know that Mario was aiming for, since he’s honestly about classic beauty and glamour, not the done up instagram trends we see all over the internet.  While he is known as the King of Contour, he is a huge fan of effortless beauty and loves creating those looks personally on his clientele.

Each shadow, whether matte or shimmer through out the palette offer such great pigmentation… high intensity color.  Each have such a gorgeous texture, smooth and buttery.  I have used several palettes from ABH, the Modern Renaissance being my favorite before I tried this one, and I absolutely love the quality of this palette.  Smooth, satin shades are just the plus side to how wonderful this palette is.  The colors, while neutral – offer anyone a wide range of shades to create an every day look or a show stopping smoky eye.  The options are endless.

Like most (if not all) of the ABH palettes, this particular one comes with a duo-ended makeup brush.  A shadow end and one for blending – which makes this the perfect palette for on the go.  Each eye shadow (12 shades in all) is named after women and places that have given Mario inspiration over the years.  Do you see Lula (Mario’s mom), Marina (Mario’s sister), Kim and Claudia in the mix?  Need I say more?  This definitely was a palette created with the inspiration that Mario found in his life.

Bottom Row Swatches – From Left to Right:  Lula, Isabel, Violeta, 5th Ave., Bronx, Paris.

All of the shades are gorgeous and I love that there are a mixture of matte and shimmer shades.  Each shadow offers such gorgeous color payoff and while some of the shimmer shades can have a bit of fall out, honestly, they are so pigmented and buttery… a little product goes a long way.  Rich gorgeous color in one swipe and no patchy application – even with the matte shades.

I haven’t been using much makeup lately so I was very excited to dip into the palette and create a look.  On my eyes I’m using a blend of Violeta and Isabel in the crease and as my transition shade, Marina on the lid and blended up towards the crease, Muse blended into the outer v and Hollywood as an inner corner highlight and to highlight a little on my brow bone.

Let’s face it, as a makeup addict, I can honestly say that you can NEVER have enough neutral palettes.  But I’m so happy with this palette.  It’s not your average, every day neutral palette – it’s definitely a master piece created by a master artist.  The Master Palette by Mario is a gorgeous palette with beautiful and stunning shades that will work with any skin tone, eye color and age and I think it’s definitely an essential to any makeup lovers collection.  This will be my go-to travel palette and I think it will be a favorite for years to come.  Of course, it helps that I have a personal connection to the palette and the artist, so I’m proud to sport this palette and use it with pride.

Here’s a little glimpse of Mario’s instagram – a slideshow he created.  Take a look, you might see someone you know in the mix. 😉

The palette is gorgeous and I definitely suggest checking it out and seeing for yourself. It should be available at select Ulta and Sephora stores if it has been sold out online at Anastasia Beverly Hills.  I do think it’s a must have for anyone, but I think after hearing about Mario’s humble beginnings and how he started as a makeup artist won my heart over more than anything.  Nonetheless, if you have the opportunity to check it out and pick up one for yourself… do it!

I don’t use a lot of makeup during the summer time and lately I have found that I have really been enjoying a simple look – mascara and lip balm.  But, after getting my hands on the Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance Palette, I’ve really been enjoying working with it and creating looks.  Contrary to how it looks, this palette is much more than a pink toned palette like it seems.  I’ve been loving the combination of warm tones to create showstopping looks.  Today I share with you a look I created using mainly this palette with a little pop of color on my lower lash line with ColourPop’s Flower Shop (from their Spring / Summer collection).  I’ll be sharing this look with you as well as swatches of the palette and more.  Be sure to click on the video if you want to chit chat with me and watch me GRWM when I create this look.

Let’s chit chat about this palette first before we get into the whole makeup look, shall we?  The Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance Palette retails for $42.00 and includes 14 beautiful shades appropriate for any time of year.  This palette also includes a duo-ended brush to help create those stunning looks.

The Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance palette is an essential eye shadow collection that includes a variety of neutral and berry tones.  It’s the first permanent palette in the ABH line – which I love, since so many of the palettes I own from her were Limited Editions.  This palette includes gorgeously pigmented shades that offer you the opportunity to create endless looks for daytime and evening.  I am absolutely in love with the pigmentation of each color even if some of them did kick up a bit of dust and a little bit of fall out it’s a beautifully pigmented palette.  At first glance, this eye shadow palette looks like it would be too berry or too pink to create many looks, but I have found that I’ve been able to create a variety of looks with the shades.

The palette has faux suede packaging that make it feel really nice and soft and so far it has been easy to clean.  I love that each name is listed under the individual shades – which is always a great thing in any eye shadow palette.  The magnetic closure seals the palette up tightly, but not too tight as to make it difficult to open and close.  The mirror is a good size and this palette really offers a variety of shades for your money and make it a good travel palette.  I’m impressed overall with this palette, the packaging and the shades.

To create my look I used the neutral tones in the Modern Renaissance Palette to create the base of my makeup look.  For the pop of color, I decided that I would use Flower Shop from ColourPop as a little pop of color on the lower lash line.  Of course, you could totally utilize one of the berry shades in it’s place to really make the look pop.

It is not often that I purchase a palette and find almost immediately that I am a huge fan, but the Anastasia Beverly Hills Tamanna Dress Your Face Palette has been one of those palettes that I immediately crushed on.  I’m not gonna lie, I wasn’t really intrigued by it when I first seen it released.  I thought to myself… eh, I’ll skip this one, but decided to cash in on a discount I had and it was a great investment.

Anastasia Beverly Hills does it again with a collaboration with Makeup Artist Tamanna Roashan, also known as Dress Your Face on social media. This collection of shadows includes Tamanna’s “must have” shades to achieve her most requested looks that can easily be paired with any skin tone.  A combination of warm and cool tones combined to create anything from smoky eyes to intricate cut creases and everything in between can be accomplished using this palette.

At $29.00 this palette is a HUGE steal – including ten show stopping shades.  This is my third eye shadow palette produced by Anastasia Beverly Hills and quite honestly my favorite.  Be sure to click and watch the video embedded below for a live review and my thoughts on this palette or click here to watch directly on YouTube.

Already a show stopper, this gorgeous palette with a cover design that makes you intrigued, includes highly pigmented shadows from stunning neutrals to shimmering jewel tones that are really easy to blend and definitely fun to work with.

Anastasia Beverly Hills Tamanna Palette

If you are someone who loves neutral shades but are looking for a palette that may offer you a little pop of color, I think this would be a great find for you.  It is a rare thing for me to find a small palette that offers a matte browbone highlight shade, a deep matte black and then a good transition shade and this palette offers Fresh which is a matte browbone shade I like to use, Bengal which I use as the perfect transition and then Noir or Chocolate which will help to deepen the outer V or crease.  The rest of the shades are bonuses.

In my swatches Sangria shows up a lot less pigmented then it really is so I’ve included makeup looks with the colors in this palette so you can see how they look on the eyes.  Below I am using Sangria all over the lid and while it is used over a base, the color is very vibrant naturally in comparison to the swatch which became washed out due to lighting.  Sorry about that.

Fall Berry Smokey Eye

I also used the Tamanna palette to recreate this look (above) and again, as you can see, the color is quite bold when taken in proper lighting.  Tutorial for this look can be found here.

Considering there are a plethora of palettes on the market today all ranging in prices and some quite on the high end price spectrum, I definitely suggest this palette for anyone looking to add a new makeup palette to your list.  With the holidays so quickly approaching, this would be a great gift for any makeup lover on your Christmas list and of course – a great palette for you too.

This is still available at Anastasiabeverlyhills.com and Ulta.com.  Get up to 6% cash back if you sign up with Ebates right now (click here) and purchase on Ulta.com.

Fall Berry Smokey Eye

On Halloween I did a makeup look that really sparked a lot of interest… woohoo – it’s nice to do something right for once. lol  I was actually rushing through the eye look so I could do the skull makeup look but the eye makeup look is what caught the attention of everyone and I was asked to do a tutorial.  Now mind you, I’ve been sick pretty much since Halloween, so I haven’t had the chance to really get the tutorial up and when I finally decided to get it going… it turned out much longer than I would have liked.  But, oh well – I digress and move forward.  So since I was feeling like I needed to put some makeup on, I decided to “dress my face” – see what I did there? And, now… onto the tutorial.  It’s a long one because I am chit chatting and talking through all the steps.  Click here to watch directly on YouTube.  All details on the products used as well as photos are posted below.  I hope you all enjoy this Fall Berry Smoky Eye.

Hope you liked my talk through – now onto the photos and all the details.

Fall Berry Smokey Eye

 

Products used:

  • Coastal Scents Step One Eye Primer
  • Anastasia Beverly Hills Tamanna Dress Your Face Palette – Sangria (used in the brows and on the lid), Bengal (used as transition shade), Chocolate (used in the crease), China Rose (used on the inner third of the eye lid), Noir (used to deepen the outer V), Fresh (used to highlight the browbone) and Venezia (the pop of color used on the inner corner of the eyes).
  • Anastasia Beverly Hills Amrezy Palette – Iridescent Purple (used on the brows as well as the lower lash line), Legend (used to highlight my cheekbones).

In the original eye look for Halloween, I used a blend of Sangria (Tamanna) and Iridescent Purple (Amrezy) but for this specific tutorial I only used Iridescent Purple.  So sorry about that, I just wasn’t feeling well and forgot to add Sangria.

  • Tarte Smolder-eyes Pencil in Fig (used as a base for Sangria and applied on the lower lash line)
  • Jordana 12 Hour Made To Last Liquid Pencil Liner in Black Point (applied to waterline/tightline)
  • New York Color (NYC) Liquid Eye liner in Black (used to create the winged liner)
  • Jordana Best Lash Volumizing Mascara (upper and lower lashes)
  • Kiss EZ Lashes in 11 – false lashes
  • NYX Matte Lip Cream in Istanbul (applied to my lips)
  • Paula Dorf 2+1 For Brows (used to create the shape and define the tail and arch of my brows)

Fall Berry Smokey Eye

I know I said this earlier but this look is very easy to create.  It’s just about layering colors, color placement and of course the colors you choose.  While I didn’t get a chance to do so – you can certainly pair this look with a darker lip shade like a berry or wine or even a nice berry pink.  Nude was the choice I went with because it was right within my reach and I wasn’t feeling very well, otherwise I may have chosen to go for a berry shade myself.

Fall Berry Smokey Eye

Now for the fashion sense, I wasn’t feeling quite well but I do what I always love to do during the Fall and Winter months and that’s throw on a beanie or scarf and rock it out.  On this day I decided a beanie and a pair of gold hoop earrings would suffice.  I also have on a t-shirt… adorned with big bold letters that describe me to a “t”. lol

Fall Berry Smokey Eye

My shirt was custom made by me at HICustom.com in their design lab.  I’ll be sure to have more information on the brand and about the company in a later post.  I’m using a pair of jeans – which is my go to during the colder months.

Fall Berry Smokey Eye

I hope you guys enjoyed this super easy look.  I will have a review on the Tamanna Palette coming soon so stay tuned for that.  Wishing you all the best of these chilly months to come. xo

“Forever & Always!”

Oh Fall… where are you?  Maui is super hot and humid and man I would love some cool chilled air my way, but it just hasn’t been so lately.  It was so warm today that a tank and shorts was on my outfit list… less is better, right? (did I just say that? lol)  So here is my Plus Sized Outfit of the Day…

OOTD Old Navy

You know in Hawaii we rock out flip flops like they are about to be discontinued, lol.  So here is my super quick outfit for going out and tackling Costco with my three sons.  Overall I have to say it was a fun day… we picked up my lil sis and spent a few hours with her while we tackled some errands… overall, I consider it a WIN.

  • Top – Love is Forever Graphic Tank from Old Navy
  • Bottoms – Denim Bermudas/Cut offs from Torrid
  • Flip flops – Guess
  • Watch – Invicta
  • Sunglasses – Maui Jim
  • Necklace – And I always get a lot of questions about my Teddy Bear Necklace.  Sadly I don’t know where it is from, my husband bought me this pendant before we had children, over 10 years ago.  I have heard that some jewelers carry it – but I have not seen it at local stores.

OOTD Old Navy

For my makeup today… I really was aiming to bring Fall into my life, even if it meant I had to do my makeup like Fall was in full swing. lol I also have had my Tamanna palette now for a couple of weeks and each opportunity I have I try to play with new shade combinations and had a few in mind I wanted to pair today. Since I only really wear makeup once a week, I was sure gonna make sure to get some makeup lovin’ in.

FOTD Tamanna Palette

I’ve been working on a review for the Tamanna palette, and hope to have it up soon since I see that it is still available.  It drives me nuts when things are limited edition and I have to run out and get them because I just have to have it, but that also means that by the time I have had it long enough for me to actually state my thoughts on the product… I don’t get around to it.  Ooh – and on another note… have you seen my hair?  I know these pictures don’t show it well, but I went dark again… I’m actually really diggin’ it.

This plus sized girl was all about comfort and cool today.  I have been loving the Old Navy Tees and Tanks that they have been releasing lately and I’m all about a graphic tee if it means I can be comfortable.  I love those types of shirts for underneath my slouchy sweaters especially… now if Fall can just make its way here so I can start using them. lol  Wishing you all a wonderful Aloha Friday and a kick ass weekend.

Smooches.

I’ve had the Anastasia Beverly Hills Amrezy Palette now for about a month or more and I have been really enjoying it.  But, I realized that I didn’t have a tutorial up using the product and I always like to do that before posting a review.  Since Hawaii has been dealing with Tropical Storms and hurricanes, it has left me with a bit of cabin fever so I figured the best way to combat the blues is to do a makeup and then head out for some grocery shopping.

Check out my video tutorial embedded before.  Well, actually it is a GRWM (Get Ready with Me) with a little chit chat.  I’ll show you the steps on how I achieved my look and hang out like girlfriends as we talk story a bit. lol  If you want, you can click here to watch directly on YouTube.

GRWM feat. Amrezy Palette

If I were to decide to wear makeup every day – which everyone knows I normally use eye makeup maybe once a week… this would be what I would choose to do – a soft brown smoky eye.  It’s simple to create and since the area between my eye lid and brow is so large… I normally need a soft wash of color to pull a look together.  The Amrezy Palette offers some really nice shades to create just a look for a daytime wearable ensemble or something with a soft pop of color.

Products used (eyes):
