anna kendrick's oscar look and the sephora star gazer natural believer palette

Makeup artist Sara Glick did Anna Kendrick's look for the Oscars last Sunday, and OMG did she look amazing. There has been a lot of talk about a bold red or orange lip lately; I love a bold lip as much as the next girl, but to look this beautiful and appear to be wearing very little makeup is not an easy task. I am all about this rosy cheek and slightly smokey eye for spring!

For Anna's sultry look Sara used:

Arcona Magic White Ice moisturizer
Temptu's Retouch highlighter in Champagne Shimmer
Tarte Eco Cheek
Tarte stain in Charmed
Dior's 5-color eyeshadow palette in Sunset Café
Dior Show Unlimited mascara in black

After seeing Anna's makeup, I concluded that I needed a spring palette to achieve this look (or get as close to it as possible at least). I found the perfect purse friendly compact from Sephora called the Star Gazer Edition Natural Believer Palette. For $15 this palette is a steal! It is also eco-friendly and formulated without parabens, sulfates, phthalates or GMOs.

This palette is small enough to carry in your bag and contains a beautiful cheek color (very Anna K.) as well as six shadows that range from a light sparkly purple to a gorgeous cobalt blue.

It also contains a black that is perfect for an eyeliner. I have used this palette everyday for the last week and am considering ordering another! Love. IT. As you can kind of tell from the picture, being very natural these have a slightly different texture to them than say a Chanel or a MAC shadow. They are not as quit as silky, but they look great on and stayed put for 9 hours!
