Once upon a time, there was an intrepid explorer, both worldly and beautiful. A jewelry designer, philanthropist, and world traveler at large, our beauty (named Belle) was literally flawless both inside and out. She was a paragon of perfection, if ever there was one.
One morning, our striking lady found herself in the somewhat foreign (to her, at least) land called Beverly Hills, on business. After a particularly long but wonderful evening of partying, she awoke to find that her visage was looking less than lively. When those situations arose in the past, her m.o would be to slap on some concealer and a large pair of frames and call it a day. Unfortunately, that very afternoon she had a very important meeting, and frames simply wouldn’t do. Slightly afraid of her tired eyes and pallid, dull complexion, she immediately grabbed her purse and ventured out in hot pursuit of a cure for what ailed her.
Her purposeful strides (and an iPhone app) led her to a salon and shop just off Rodeo drive, known as Anastasia Beverly Hills. The pristine salon was certainly a site for her sore eyes, and she proceeded to peruse both the service and product offerings. Approached by one of the gals in the salon, she proceeded to list all of her complexion grievances.
The woman, who turned out to be Anastasia herself, explained that the first step to a brighter, more awake appearance is a well-sculpted brow. Belle then learned about Anastasia’s very special technique. Anastasia’s Golden Ratio Technique involves “establishing three precise points (on the brow): one that lies on an imaginary line running vertically through the middle of the nostril; the High Point on the eyebrow arch, which can be found on a line connecting the tip of the nose to the center of the iris; and finally, the point that lies on a line running through the edge of the corresponding nostril through the outer edge of the eye. The High Point divides the eyebrow arch in precisely the Golden Ratio.”
At once, Incredibly impressed with Anastasia’s aesthetic expertise (as a jewelry designer, Belle had an eye for ratios, herself), Belle processed all of that information as Anastasia found her three points, and transformed her brows into something magnificent. Belle forgot about her tired appearance as she gazed at her brows, instantly noticing how delightfully big and bright her peepers looked. Belle had a taste of Anastasia’s magic, and she wanted more.
Fortunately for Belle, Anastasia offered up her wonderful selection of products, the instruments to keeping up that beautifully sculpted brow that Anastasia had just given her. Anastasia led Belle to a lovely little display, and walked her through the range.
First up was the Beauty Express Brow Kit, a palette that offers up light-reflecting eye shadows to adorn the lids, silky smooth brow powders to fill and define brows, brow stencils to ensure a perfect shape every single time, complimenting brushes (the tools for perfection), and a brow wax cream to tame stubborn stray hairs.
To finish up her brows, Clear Brow Gel did the trick quite nicely. The formula left her brows tamed and not stiff or sticky.
To lift and open up her eyes even more, Anastasia applied Lash Lifting Mascara in rich black. The mascara left her lashes looking lush, rich, full, and curled. Not a bad way to look at all.
Already over the moon over how bright and glowy she looked, Belle asked Anastasia for a finishing touch. She wanted a product that would bring her complexion all of the luminosity that her eyes now possessed. Anastasia’s presented her with Highlighting Crème Duo, a double duty beauty product that instantly blushes and brightens eyes, cheeks, and lips.
Inside the glass jar is a sumptuously sparkling liquid highlighter that is chock full of luminous microsparkles; while on the top is a universally flattering pink lip/cheek cream. Used together, this magical duo transformed Belle’s face, in a miraculous way. It even came in a warm golden variety (with pink blush), St Tropez, and a cooler white version (with a peachier blush), Aspen.
Last but not least, Anastasia presented Belle with a set of delightfully pink, precisely sharp Precision Tweezers, to keep her wayward brow hairs at bay in between appointments.
Looking and feeling bright eyed and bushy tailed, Belle felt like she was once again ready to take on the world. It might have been Belle’s first trip to the Anastasia Beverly Hills salon, but she knew that it would certainly not be her last.
As for you, dear reader, a sculpted brow, brighter eyes, and a more radiant complexion awaits, and you don’t even have to journey all the way over to Beverly Hills like our gal Belle. All of these Anastasia products are available both online, and at your local Sephora. Select Sephora stores also have Anastasia brow salons, so make sure you check those out as well.
