Anastasia Eye-Lights Matte


Anastasia Soare is the leading expert in shaping the perfect brow. For years, she has styled some of Hollywood's greatest stars. Her line, Anastasia Beverly Hills, carries makeup products, tools and kits to help you achieve well-groomed, well-shaped eyebrows that compliment the face. Anastasia has many locations across the world, including fourteen salons in Japan.


The March issue of MAQUIA featured Anastasia's matte and shimmer highlighters, known as "Eye-Lights," in their eyebrow makeup tutorials. I recently purchased the matte Eye-Lights from Sephora. The highlighter defines the arch of the brow and gives the eyebrow a clean, more polished look. Sephora only offers the matte highlighter in one color, Camille, but Anastasia carries five different shades for their matte highlighter and six for the shimmer version. Camille is a peach, skin-colored shade that is a bit too dark and orange for my skin but after applying SUQQU's Contour Shadow in EX02 Kasumizakura, looks natural. The highlighter is applied along the bottom brow line and blended into the skin with your fingers or a brush, which is what MAQUIA recommends. According to Anastasia's website, the highlighter can also be used along the lip line to prevent lip color from bleeding and as an eye shadow base. The highlighting pencil is smooth and creamy but be sure your eyebrows are not dry prior to application. The highlighter will make your dry skin more apparent so remember to moisturize. The highlighter definitely works in defining the brow but also makes uneven brows appear more symmetrical. If you're someone concerned about your brow shape or how polished you look, Anastasia's highlighters are a must.
