Happy New Year with Anastasia Beverly Hills

Oh hi there strangers, 2019 has dragged me back to my humble little blog after what seems like there anyone still out there!? I hope everyone has had a wonderful festive period and have kicked off the new year feeling good about what's to come. After a slightly turbulent 2018 I'm determined to make this year more productive and fulfilling and create more time for things I usually tell myself I can't fit in, like this.

I've had a few eyeshadow palettes that I've loved using over the past few months and really wanted to share on here but being out of the blogging loop I just never remembered to take photos. If you follow me on Instagram you may have seen this Christmas makeup look already when I posted it a few weeks back.

I had a lot of fun creating a makeup that was simple yet also a little whimsical, the rosy cheeks and pink nose were inspired by the chilly weather outside, and some fake freckles seemed like a cute addition. Oh how I wish I was as blessed in real life. However the reason I tempted you over here today was to share a palette with you, Prism by Anastasia Beverly Hills.

I've had this palette sat in a drawer for a little while without many opportunities to use it, I love the mix of mattes and shimmers, with some gorgeous peachy tones but mostly those golds! I was gagging to get them on my face over Christmas and in this look I used a combination of the four I've pointed out above. Sphinx and Eternal in particular are stunning and so rich, in fact there is really good pay off from all the shades I've tried in this palette, I'm very impressed.

EDIT: It niggled at me all weekend so I came back and added swatches, I don't know what I was thinking!? Also, I now have a new favourite shade I can't wait to try, Lure. The colour order corresponds with the palette so hopefully it's easy to see which is which.

This is the first time I've really used any eyeshadows from ABH. I'm a massive fan of their brow pomade and a lover of their bronzers but that's pretty much the extent of my experience with the brand, hopefully I can get my hands on some other bits to try this year.

I'd really love to hear if you've been using this palette, or have any other recommendations for products of theirs. Or just pop me a comment to say hi so I know I'm not talking to myself...who am I kidding, I'm quite content talking to myself. I'm just happy not to be covered in tinsel anymore, HAPPY NEW YEAR!
