Out of all the more cultural parts of our life, the only one where I feel truly at home at is literature. Ever since I can remember I was reading, lots and lots, and even though it isn´t nearly as much as it used to be, I consider myself a well-read person.
The others, like music and art, are things I enjoy, but don´t really know much about. So when I received the Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance palette in a giveaway, it got me thinking.
The renaissance as epoch that celebrated the rediscovery of ancient wisdom, the artists Boticelli, Da Vinci and Dürer, that was what immediately came to my mind. But how did that translate to color scheme and naming of the shadows? Google needed to help.
I am still not one hundred percent sure, but one thing needs addressing: From all the artists and philosophers they could have picked to name the shades, Vermeer was the wrong one. He is, albeit famous, one of the leading painters of the epoch Barock, almost 100 years after the epoch of Renaissance…
Any other flaws I found in the Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance palette? Let´s see.
October done and dusted, and things are getting cold here. Outside, that is. And inside, when our heating was broken. But it is fixed again. One thing I did not include in the October recap, but rest assured, it was on of my favorite things happening.
The fixing, not the breaking.
I seem to have lost track here. Back to the video: My October Favorites and some other stuff. As it goes.
When I started making videos, I had no idea how different my makeup would look on camera as opposed to real life.
Of course I had heard people mention it, but as always you only ever really believe the things you experience yourself. So after a lot of trial and error, all documented on camera of course, I finally have settled for a routine I am content with.
After the positive feedback I got on my latest First Impressions video (watch here in case you missed it), and because they are so much fun to film, I decided to stick to the concept and do another one.
The one thing I need to work on is my language (you´d think I would have learned that by now, with a two year old around that repeats everything) and my rambling. Oh wait, that makes two things. Maybe on my maths as well, to make it three.
But without further ado, here is the video and my thoughts on the products.
