Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Pen
I’m still having a bit of a brow-obsession at the moment – I’m loving the effect that filling my brows in a bit has on my face. It gives it more definition and really helps ‘frame’ the eyes. So if you’re like me and have pale/blonde brows – don’t dismiss brow-love as something darker haired lovelies. If anything I think a bit of brow filler is almost more important for those of us with pale hair!
Of course, when I say filling in brows – I don’t mean making them look like they have been gone-over with a black marker pen, or drawn on with a thick pencil line. What you want is something that’s a shade or two darker than your natural colour but still close – so it looks natural. The overall effect should just to be like your brows are a bit ‘fuller’ (ie they have more hairs) than they looked before.
A couple of months ago I spotted this little beauty at Amsterdam Airport and had heard amazing things about the Anastasia Beverly Hills brand so decided to pick one up.
I chose the Universal Light shade as felt this would be the closest match for my paler brows and as you can see from the swatch above – this is one of the very few coloured make-up products that you WANT to not be pigmented. You want something sheer and build-able - so you can achieve a naturally looking level of intensity (you might want it layered darker on fatter bits of the brow – but paler on the thinner sections.
The mug shot above is to give an idea of the difference brows make to a look. Yes, this has the wonders of an instagram filter over it – but this was a day where I was wearing no make-up other than filling my brows in with my Anastasia Pen and a bit of mascara. I absolutely love the difference it makes to my face and highly recommend that if you haven’t tried doing anything with your brows before give it a go – there are lots of very cheap products out there so for a little investment you can make a big difference to your look!
