I haven’t done a beauty type post in a while and seeing as Bobbi Brown just opened a store in India I thought I’d share my five favourite products from her cosmetics range. I’m a bit of a make up dud- (my fifteen year old cousin is more of a master of make up then I am) so Bobbi Brown’s free consultations have been great at showing me which products suit my skin and importantly how to apply them. So here’s my fav five products:
Bobbi Brown: Protective Face Base SPF 50
I’ve talked about my previous problems with adult acne before and as a result I see a dermatologist and facialist regularly. The one thing they always talk about is the importance of wearing a high factor sunscreen daily- to help prevent pigmentation from acne scarring and of course to slow down the signs of aging. I’ve tried Thalgo and La Roche-Posay’s SPF 50 creams before and found them too greasy on my oily skin but Bobbi Brown’s Protective Face Base SPF 50 works well on my skin type and is hopefully helping to keep those wrinkles at bay.
Bobbi Brown: Eye Shadow: Mahogany
The Mr. and I used to live in Liverpool where the girls are known for their strong (sometimes OTT tattoo-like) brows and what did the Bobbi Brown make up artist in Liverpool recommend? Yep powdering in my eyebrows! I wasn’t too sure about her suggestion at first but once she’d done it- I did like it. I have a few sparse patches and just brushing on the powder evens out my brows and does make them look better.
Bobbi Brown: Skin Foundation SPF 15: Honey 5
This was the first foundation I bought and I did deviate a few times to try out other brands foundations but I’ve come back to Bobbi Brown. The colour matches my skin tone, blends in well and I just really like the light consistency. You don’t feel like you’re wearing lots of make-up.
Bobbi Brown: Blush: Cranberry
I like a bit of Blush and at the moment its Bobbi Brown’s Cranberry that I reach for.
Bobbi Brown: Bronze Shimmer Brick
I use Bobbi Brown’s Shimmer Brick when I’m going out in the evening. It’s easy to use and just adds a bit of a bronze glow to the skin.
