My Bobbi Brown favourites
It’s been way too long since we did the topic beauty here on the blog. As you already know my makeup bag mainly consists of Chantecaille and Laura Mercier products, with the occasional something from Nars. During my recent visit to LA I met the loveliest makeup artist from Bobbi Brown. Amanda Flood introduced me to the entire range, from skincare to make up and I must say she had me converted. So very often I end up buying products that sound great in the store, but once I get home I don’t use them more than once or twice. These three star buys I use daily and can’t imagine going without now:
Bobbi Brown Foundation Stick: This is truly the most amazing foundation I’ve ever used. A makeup artist at work first used it on me and I fell in love with the coverage and texture, so in LA I purchased this award winning stick in the shade Natural. It’s easy to carry around, easy to apply and blends in like silk. You can use it all over the face, or like me use a small concealer brush to pick up a little product to cover up problem areas. This product is buildable; you can go for light, medium or full coverage depending on how much you use and how you apply it. The best thing about it is that it doubIes as a concealer which you can use under the eyes to brighten up. It looks really natural and stays put all day.
Bobbi Brown Sheer Lip Gloss – Pretty in Pink (Limited edition): This is my favourite lipgloss ever. I’m much more of a lipstick person because most glosses feel too sticky for me but I haven’t gone a day without using this product since I got it. This super sheer and wearable gloss is designed to enhance your lips. When you first apply it you feel a slight cooling tingle which I really like. You can wear in on top of any lipstick for extra shine.
Bobbi Brown Bronzing Powder (Golden light): For years the only bronzing powder I would go near was Benefits Hoola bronzer and even that could look muddy at times, but when Amanda applied this bronzer on me I instantly saw the difference. The problems I have with most bronzers are that they are either too orange, too muddy or have too much shimmer in them. This soft matte bronzer gives your skin the look of a flawless natural tan. It blends nicely and will never look patchy or orange. You can use it all over for an even tan or like me add a little to your complexion to warm it up. I also this product together with another Bobbi Brown product which is the Shimmer Brick Compact in Bronze, it helps achieving the perfect sun kissed look.
