THE ANNA EDIT'S GUIDE TO THE YSL BROW WARDROBE
My eyebrows and I, I've been on quite the journey. From hacking them completely off in junior school and having to make the excuse that the 'face glitter I was using made them dissolve' when I had in fact cut them off the night before with nail scissors, to the single-row tadpoles that I wore on my forehead for most of my teenage period - it's only been in the last couple of years that I've given them the TLC that they truly deserve and for once I don't look permanently shocked.
I've been experimenting with a wardrobe of products to define where needed and shape my brows into place - that's where the eyebrow line-up from YSL comes in. They have four products to suit all needs; whether they're out of control like mine, or if you need some serious beefing up. Let me introduce you to the Brow Wardrobe by YSL
DESSIN DES SOURCILS (EYEBROW PENCIL)
If your eyebrows are on the sparser side of things, then you'll want to equip yourself with the Dessin des Sourcils, which is a classic eyebrow pencil available in 4 shades. It's waxy, but soft and so blends in beautifully without ever looking harsh
COUTURE BROW PALETTE
For soft definition there's the Couture Brow Palette which comes in two colours. I tend to the use the darker of the two, but also love it for eyeshadow and I'm wearing the lightest colour from the compact all over my lids in the photos above. The fact that it also comes with a mini brush and a set of tweezers and it can be used as eyeshadow makes it a great travel companion.
COUTURE BROW MARKER
The Couture Brow Marker is almost like a watercolour-filled brush for your brows and let me tell you - this stuff doesn't budge once it's dried down. I find it best for adding shape to the top of the brows and use the paler colour of the two shades.
COUTURE BROW MASCARA
If your brows just need a bit of stabilisation, then you can't go wrong with the Couture Brow, which again comes in two shades (I use the lightest). It's a tinted gel that's delivered on the tiniest brush ever and really allows you get some texture into your brows whilst also pinning them down.
