Anastasia Beverly Hills just launched in Arnotts and whether you're the kind of girl that does a full face when opening the door to the postman or the kind of girl who just about put some brows on, this brand is for you. Here's what to shop.
The rumours are true, Anastasia Beverly Hills has finally landed in Ireland and we couldn’t be more excited. We no longer have to beg any family member going to America to bring us home eyeshadow palettes, we can now get them for ourselves. Santa lists at the ready ladies because here’s what products you need no matter what kind of makeup buzz you’re into.
If you’re a full face all day, everyday kind of gal
If you’re the kind of girl who wouldn’t dream of leaving the house without your face on (not even to put the bins out) then you need any of the eyeshadow palettes in your life like yesterday. The one on the top of our wish list though is The Modern Renaissance palette. It’s the original and best-selling eyeshadow product for Anastasia Beverly Hills and you need in your life like yesterday. The shadows are so easy to work with, they blend out like a dream and the shades have you covered for when you want a simple brown smokey eye or want something a bit more dramatic. Our favourite shades? It’s a tie between Love Letter and Vermeer.
If you’re a no makeup, makeup kind of gal
The key to a good no makeup, makeup look is getting that right kind of glow. Enter: Liquid Glow. Most liquid highlighters can be a bit overbearing but this product gives that perfect subtle sheen but you can also build the product up if you’re into blinding people with your shine. It doesn’t dry too quickly so it gives you plenty of time to work with it. Our advice: use a beauty blender to apply.
If makeup for you isn’t all that
Whether you’re into makeup or not, you still need brows. The brow whiz pencil just might make you enjoy the thought of putting muck on your face. It’s also a two in one product so you’re getting value for your buck. The spoolie on the bottom is great for giving your brows into shape but it’ll also help blend out your brows once they’re drawn. The pencil is super easy to use and there’s not a product out there that will give you precise hair-like strokes like this can.
If you’re a full-blown MUA
If you’re a makeup artist, then you don’t need us telling you to go out and buy every product ASAP because you already know that. But what you do need, is a place to start. This is where the Brow Pro Palette comes in. An entire palette dedicated to the art of brows, yep - we like the sound of that. Being a MUA is all about having a kit you can take anywhere so this product is really great as it has every kind of brow shade you could ever need for a client.
If you’re a wear makeup when going somewhere nice kind of gal
Lipstick can tie an entire look together so there really is no other makeup product you need more for a night out than a lipstick. Luckily, Anastasia Beverly Hills doesn’t come to play when it comes to liquid lipsticks. From the neutralist of nudes to the vampiest of reds, the shades on offer are to die for. The great thing about these liquid lipsticks is that when it’s time to top up your lipstick, you don’t get left with that gross crust of the hardened lipstick that was on before.
If you’re the experimental type
Stick foundation is giving us serious stage school flashbacks but we’re kind of into it. It’s only natural to feel a little apprehensive when it comes to using a stick foundation but these bad boys are raved about by drag queens everywhere and if you’re not going to take makeup advice from a drag queen, then who are you going to take advice from?
So, what are you waiting for? Get yourself on over to Arnotts, we'll see you in the queue.
