Anastasia Eye Lights Matte

Just when I think I have tried every great product out there I stumble upon on one that I can’t imagine living without. I recently tried some products from the Anastasia line and the standout for me was the Eye Lights Matte Pencil. Just run it under your eyebrow and voila like magic my eyes appeared more open and my eyebrows higher.

Even without makeup on Eye Lights opens up my eyes and makes a huge difference. Now my daily staple I don’t know how I lived before it.

Anastasia Eye Lights Matte

These versatile, moisturizing, cream-to-powder pencils create soft, matte highlights under brows, a smooth base for shadows, or subtle shadowing on its own.

Natural is beautiful!

Simple, chic, and sometimes with freckles shining through, the au natural look gets updated and subtly illuminated with peachy, pinky shades to give a slight punch that looks almost doll-like. Makeup artist Tyron Machusen explains, “For lips, these shades of apricot and pink are flattering on everyone and really complement a gorgeous, fresh complexion.”

For eyes that glisten, first cover dark circles, and even the upper lid with a reflective concealer. Apply champagne shadow to lids, then define the upper lash line with deep brown shadow. Bolster lashes with a coat of lash primer, and finish with blue-black mascara to instantly brighten the eyes.

PEARLY LIPS:

For lush lips, first smooth them out with a lip exfoliator. Then outline and fill them in with shimmery nude lipstick. Take the shine up a notch with a layer of peachy gloss.

TRY THIS:

Emulsion Lip Exfoliant by Smashbox is the first sugar-based, peppermint, lip exfoliator that is perfectly edible, and smells delicious. Experience a cooling sensation as poppy seeds and sugar granules gently remove dry, flaky skin, while shea butter, jojoba, and antioxidants condition and revitalize lips.

To use: Apply emulsion to top and bottom lips – working it in a circular motion to exfoliate. Allow emulsion to remain on lips for several seconds until a cooling sensation begins. To remove, moisten a cotton pad with water and gently wipe away scrub. Follow with a generous application of Smashbox’s Treatment Lipstick.

Thinning brows? I’ve got the perfect product!

p173000_hero.jpg 

I was recently sent a ton of amazing products from Anastasia, and I’ve had some time to try them out, and see how they work.  There are some AMAZING products, and here is one of my favorites!

Brow Enhancing Serum by Anastasia is a colorless and odorless gel, comprised of a unique blend of top proteins and vitamins designed to condition, repair, and restore the eyebrows.

What it is formulated to do:
Gone are the days of sparse, thin brows – say hello to fuller, thicker-looking brows with Brow Enhancing Serum. The unique gel-based formula is designed to help restore thin, over-plucked, and undernourished eyebrows. The deep conditioning action works to help stimulate brow growth, leaving them looking bold and beautiful.

What else you need to know:
Unlike other eyebrow regrowth products on the market that claim to work in a few months, Brow Enhancing Serum is clinically proven to stimulate the hair follicle in as quickly as 4-6 weeks! An easy-to-use applicator allows the non-greasy formula to glide on smooth without tugging or pulling and is gentle enough to be used every day. Brow Enhancing Serum is not harmful to the eyes or the surrounding skin area, plus as an added bonus, it also slows down excess hair loss, which results in a healthier fuller-looking brow.

For Thinning Brows:

“Play connect the dots!” says Sephora Beauty Pro Vanessa Dunn. One dot at the front of the brow, one dot at the top of the arch, and a final dot at the tail end. Then take a brow pencil and lightly shade it all in. Why dot on dots? So you can get an idea of how the end result will be shaped—after all, brows are no place for practicing your freehand.

Remember: The biggest brow boo-boo you can make is drawing on too-dark arches. Keep your coloring light-handed, and always mimic brow growth. Short, hair-like strokes look better than two filled-in hunks of color hovering over your eyes.
