How to: Smokey Look Using the New Anastasia Beverly Hills Maya Mia Palette and Tamanna Palette

Recently I’ve received Anastasia Beverly Hills’ new beauty blogger palettes–the Maya Mia Palette and Tamanna Palette–and have been playing around with a bunch of different looks ranging from simple everyday looks to full on dramatic ones.  I’m really impressed with the quality of the shadows in each palette.  They’re super pigmented and easy to blend.

Here is a look I created using both of the palettes.  It’s perfect for going out at night.  It’s an almost all matte look with some shimmer in the inner corners of the eyes.



I used the @anastasiabeverlyhills Maya Mia and Tamanna Palettes, ABH Waterproof Crème Color in Jet, # 415 Black lashes by @elegantlashes, @anastasiabeverlyhills Dipbrow in Dark Brown, and @hairandmakeupaddiction brushes.

Product info:
1.) Prime your lid(I used Urban Decay Anti-aging Primer Potion).
2.) Apply Fresh all over your lid with a flat shader brush.
3.) Blend Caramel into your crease using a fluffy blending brush.
4.) Deepen your crease with Deep Brown using a crease brush.
5.) Line your upper lash line with the Waterproof Crème Color in Jet and smudge Noir over top.
6.) Line your lower lash line with Noir and blend out with Caramel.
7.) Line your waterline with Tarte Cosmetics Skinny SmolderEYES in Onyx.
8.) Apply @tartecosmetics Lights, Camera, Lashes mascara, # 415 @elegantlashes, and highlight your tear duct with Blush.
On my brows, I used @anastasiabeverlyhills Dipbrow in Dark Brown.

Review: de Prettilicious Lashes




At first glance De Prettilicious Lashes reminded me of the bulk false lashes that come in packs of 10 on Ebay.  I’ve tried those and found them to be extremely hard to work with and cheaply made.  To my surprise, however, these turned out to be great.  They are made of high quality synthetic hair, are handmade, and really natural looking.  Even though these lashes are synthetic they look and feel like human hair lashes.  I love the fact that they have very thin bands because it makes them reallly easy to apply and blend with your natural lashes.  I also like how the pack of lashes comes with 10 different styles.  Included are a good mix of dramatic, as well as more natural looking lashes.

The only downfall is that there are no printed style names on the package.  To figure the names out you have to visit @deprettilicious on Instagram.  Having printed names would be convenient so people could tell others what style they’re wearing. 

De Prettilicious Lashes come in a pack of 10 and retail for around $13 on  In my opinion, that price is a steal since each pair equates to about $1.30 each and basic good quality lashes go for around $4 to $6.  The direct link to purchase them is
