Current Make Up Bag Staple for the Working Girl – Anastasia Brow Duality

An unsung hero, but a staple in my personal everyday make up bag, is Anastasia's Brow Duality 


It comes in two shade choices, I have the one in "Shell and Lace"

I must admit I use Shell the Matte Pink highlighter the least of the two. I don't hate it, I just don't use it too often, but it reminds me of a less white version of Benefit's Eye Bright and is quite effective to give your brows a more polished effect if they look a bit scraggly at the end of the day.

The reason why I love this product is the "Lace" side
A smooth gold shade that is not as creamy as all the shadow sticks that are coming out, but is thicker meaning it will  stick on!

I apply this to my "inner corner"
My eye shape does not have the traditional V shape where most people place a light colored shadow to open their eyes. 
When I tried that it looked WEIRD.

I apply this about 1 centimeter to where my eyes create a "V" and just dab a little on. Then I take my finger and gently press on the product to spread it a bit and blend out the edges. 
Straight on you actually do not see it as being obvious but whenever I move my head slightly there is a light effect on my eyes wake them up a bit and brightening them.

In hurried moments this either side can be used on the lid. The matte side to clear discoloration and slightly brighten, and the shimmery side as a champagne wash.
I sometimes apply the Lace side on my lower lash line for additional oomph! 

Final plus to this product?
I've used it nearly everyday for a year and have only sharpened it a handful of times because I just need a dot of the gold and a mini swipe of the pink.
In short, this will last ages. 

My favorite and daily habit of brightening my "inner corner"

  3. I absolutely love this product, have been using it for a few years ;) It does an amazing job "lifting" my eyebrows, I should try it on the inner corners too!

  4. I adore this too! The matte side is superb for running on the inner bridge of my nose to brighten it up. I actually really like the shimmer side as a waterline brightener. Most are too light for me, but this works magic. I don't know that it "should" be used that way, but it's never caused irritation. One problem I have noticed is that if I use it to highlight my brow bone and don't set it with powder, my *waterproof* mascara comes off and leaves lash marks. How weird is that!
