Right from when I started wearing make up, Bobbi Brown was always my go to place and it still is! It's always great to go for one of their make overs as it opens your eyes to so many of the products available where I really tend to stick to my basics that I always go back to!
For my latest make over I asked the artist to use all products that I didn't have... and here I am using a few of them. First off though, my favourite and most trusted item ever from Bobbi Brown is the foundation stick. I wear it everyday with out fail and as soon as it's close to running out I'll get a top up. My favourite product yet!
So starting with skin, I always moisturise my face and let it sink in for at least 5 mintues. I then go on with the foundation stick which I apply like war paint, and blend in using a buffing brush. You can apply as much or as little as you want and is really great for building up if you want a little more coverage for a special occasion.
I then add concealer (retouching face pencil) where it's needed and buff again. I always add a bit under my eyes for brightening and then over any red patches I have.
I then brush over my whole face the nude illuminating powder to take away any shine. This powder does have a shimmer to it which is lovely so you don't get completely mattified which I love!
To add some definition back in to my face, next to apply is bronzer and then some blusher. That's the face make up done. Super quick and easy!
Next I move on to the brows. I'm so excited to be using this brow gel which I didn't even know existed until I went for my latest make up session. I couldn't believe just how natural it made my brows look! You do need a really good dense but fine brush so you can literally add hair strokes with out getting big brown blotches.
It's taken me a couple of attempts to get them right but I think I'm just about there with them now. It also really lasts. Before this I was just adding brown eye shadow to my brows to add definition, which looked great... but by the end of the day had usually worn off.
After brows I move on to eyes. What I do here varies hugely as to what sort of occasion it is, but here I'm doing an easy every day look. I really love the Bobbi Brown eye shadow sticks. They are so easy to use whether you want to use a shimmery one and blend all over or like I've done here, also used a matt stick as a liner. I find these so much easier to use than the eye liner gel. You don't need such a steady hand and these sticks are so versatile!
To finish off I have added the smokey eye mascara which is the one I have had for a while. While I was in store I actually tried the eye opening mascara and it was amazing!! I'm definitely moving on to the one as soon as this has run out!
To finish off the look, I add my new favourite lip colour. The 'Art Stick' lip pencil which is actually so creamy and really long lasting! I put a tiny bit of vaseline on before hand which I think add the perfect amount of shine and means the pencil goes on so smoothly. I keep this in my handbag at all times!
If you were going to go and buy any of these products, I'd have to say my favourites are of course the foundation stick, and also the lipstick in Uber Pink. It goes with absolutely everything, and these are the 2 items I use with out fail daily.
