there’s just nothing i love so much as a multi-tasking beauty product. i remember a frightening story about my first experience with makeup (wet ‘n wild liquid foundation, thank you very much) – i was convinced it could be used as eyeshadow and even lipstick. yes, clearly, you should take your daughters to a cosmetic counter when they turn 13 so they never have to suffer as i did.
now that i’m older…and hopefully wiser…i still love my multitaskers, though i’m a lot pickier about what it takes to make that category. but ever since it arrived, this baked highlighting brow kit from anastasia beverly hills has been front and center in my makeup case. the darker matte colors can be blended together to produce the perfect brow tinting shade – just cover with brow gel, and your brows are brooke shields perfect. and the colors also work beautifully as eyeliners, with just a change of brush. ditto for the trio of shimmery highlighting shades. they’re great for brow highlighting, of course, but i’ve been using them as eyeshadows, and even facial highlighter (try it on cheekbones instead of bronzer!). in fact, take that eyeliner brush and try the gold shimmer as a liner underneath your eye. genius!
the kit even comes with a travel size of anastasia’s signature clear brow gel…so, unlike my wet ‘n wild fiasco, this little box really can do triple duty in your powder room. pick it up for $32 at nordstrom, or online at anastasia’s website.
