With January-itis in full effect, we all could use a little pep in our step. New makeup products ALWAYS lift my spirits and give me that extra boost I need when I’m feeling blahhh. One makeup brand that I can count on to have beautiful, quality products is Bobbi Brown. It was actually one of the first brands I bought when I started wearing makeup.
Does anyone remember her book, “Teenage Beauty?” Such a classic and taught me everything I needed to know about creating natural makeup looks. I love that Bobbi’s products enhance your beauty rather than giving you a caked on appearance.
Winter Beauty Must Haves:
Two Bobbi Brown products I’ve been using for 10+ years are this eyeshadow in Mahogany (with a brow brush) to pencil in my eyebrows, and this bronzer in shade Bali Brown. I know it sounds weird to use an eyeshadow for your brows, but trust me – it fills in all the little empty spots, and looks so natural. The bronzer gives me that sunkissed look – and really makes my cheekbones pop. I order both of these from Nordstrom every 6 months – they last a long time!
Other Bobbi Brown products I’ve loved for years are her moisturizer and eye cream. The smell and consistency are soooo nice and makeup layers really well over both. Her lipgloss glides on flawlessly – you know how some lipgloss is too thick/tacky feeling? This is the opposite! I wear her Liquid Lip Balm in “Lychee Baby” from Nordstrom and it adds just the right amount of a warm pink color to my lips. I also love the classic Nude lipgloss.
Julia (who has the best lashes) got me hooked on the Eye Opening mascara – which she’s been wearing for ages! If you’re looking for a new eyeshadow palette that’s a “one stop shop” buy this one. It has the ideal mix of colors to create an everyday eye, a smoky eye, or something fun with a hint of sparkle. The colors are so easy to work with and blend right into your crease. Use this Cream Shadow stick in Vanilla as a base so your shadow stays put. For flawless skin – you need this foundation and bonus it has SPF (saves me an extra step in my skincare routine!) If you’re looking for a brush cleaner (it’s so important to clean your brushes regularly) this one will do the job.
