Wearing the Natural Brow Shaper in Slate, Sparkle Eye Shadow in Golden Peach and Lip Gloss in Almost Nude
Put a fresh face forward this year. A new year means a new beauty collection and this latest launch from Bobbi Brown is simply beautiful. The Illuminating Nudes Collection takes makeup back to the basics and features five must-have products for creating an effortlessly pulled together look. It is a welcome relief after a glitter-laden, heavy lined and dark lipped festive season and each product is easy to use, clean, wearable and illuminating to lift and brighten your makeup look for a fresh start to 2015. If you are after a healthy, natural glow with subtle sparkle on the eyes and a light-reflective nude gloss for the lips then this collection has it all and more.
Bobbi Brown have launched their new Extra Illuminating Moisture Balm which Bobbi herself calls her “Dream Cream”. It is the first step for a lit-from-within look. This moisturiser gives the skin a re-energised feel and provides a boost of moisture and radiance in one simply step. Once your skin is perfectly prepped Bobbi Brown suggest using their CC Cream which has had a few new shades added to the range and is the ultimate beauty balm for healthy-looking skin. Bobbi Brown’s CC Cream evens out the skin in three ways; it colour-corrects, blurs the look of imperfections and illuminates all skin tones.
Once your base is flawless and illuminating it is time to frame the face with well-groomed, defined brows. Bobbi Brown’s Natural Brow Shaper & Hair Touch Up* (£16) is a cream to gel formula that effortlessly defines and fills in your eyebrows while grooming and shaping them with the compact brush. With some new colours added there will definitely be a shade to suit you as well as a clear option to keep brows in place without a hint of tint! This is a great little product and really grooms and combs through your brows giving them a touch of colour, neatly filling in any sparse areas and taking them from unruly to ultra chic in an instant.
For the eyes we are going sparkly with Bobbi Brown’s Sparkle Eye Shadow* (£23) with three new shades added to the now permanent makeup line; White Sand, Golden Peach and Ballet. The formula of these shadows is featherweight and instants lights up the eyes with a combination of shimmering pearls and fine sparkle. They have a gorgeous, creamy soft powder feel and are incredibly long lasting without a crease or smudge in sight. I have Golden Peach on which is a beautifully rich golden shimmer with light peachy flecks and is a great shade to wear all over your lids, day or night. And finally it is time to wake up your face and give your lips a sultry sheen with a slick of Bobbi Brown’s Sheer Color Lip Gloss* (£18.50). Three new shades have joined this lip lacquer lineup in Almost Nude, Almost Peach and Almost Pink. They are the prettiest glosses to look at and are infused with soothing botanical extracts to keep lips and healthy and soft. They have a slightly minty scent and give the lips a high-shine finish to pull the look together perfectly. They are any nude-lip-lovers’ dream and look sweet on the lips whether worn alone or layered over your favourite lipstick.
