Anastasia Soare is the innovator behind Anastasia Beverly Hills. A well-known brow expert, she’s the go-to beauty specialist for celebrities. Her line includes brow accessories such as tools, brow prep, brow fix and brow serum in addition to gorgeous eye shadows and lip glosses. Her new Bold & Beautiful Kit is one-stop shopping for brows and eyes. The travel-friendly kit is perfect for the office or on the go. Check out some eyebrow tips here.
Anastasia describes the two-volume set: “Bold brows and beautiful eyes are the easiest way to pull together a fashionable makeup look, and are easily attained with the Bold & Beautiful Kit. Volume 1 for Bold Brows features a brow powder, brow pomade to set and tint and a professional dual-ended brow brush to expertly define and groom your brows. It also includes a mini stainless steel tweezer to perfectly shape your brows. My favorite part about this brow palette is the brow pomade, which sets and tints the brows for a bold, all day finish. Volume 2 is for Beautiful Eyes, and it includes four gorgeous neutral matte and shimmer shades that you can build for any look you want. They look great on any skin tone and can be worn wet or dry.” (Available at Sephora.com.)
