Bobbi Brown Makeup Lesson 2015: Beauty, Simplified
I may have shared hundreds of reviews, tips, tricks, and whatnots over the last 6 years as a Beauty Blogger, but at the end of the day, I will only dispense this single beauty advice: Find the products and tips that work for you, and stick with them for life. That's it! Beauty should not be complicated!
If you're new to makeup, however, you can get lost in the sea of beauty products, costing you a lot of money and your skin along the way. Oh, I should know!
This is why I highly encourage everyone, newbie or not, to attend makeup workshops to equip you with know- how to save you from grief and unnecessary spending (or minimize both at the very least). I attended a lot when I was starting with the blog and I still attend some today-everything changes quickly nowadays and I have to adapt to that change for my advantage and to be able share knowledge as well. You can't be too learned to learn something new!
Just last week, I attended Bobbi Brown's Makeup Lesson for 2015. Just like last year, the lessons cover makeup tips and tricks for the brows, eyes, complexion, and lips, and looks for daytime, nighttime, school, and work, but what's new is Bobbi has shared a couple of new techniques in these lessons, techniques that she probably have discovered and learned last year or a couple of months back while working in shows. Attending these lessons is like having a one-on-one with Bobbi!
We had a taste of Bobbi's Makeup Lessons for this year courtesy of Felix Nguyen, APAC Manager For Artistry For Bobbi Brown (who, by the way, works alongside Bobbi Brown!). In the preview, Felix demonstrated Career Makeup and Summer Makeup.
I'll be sharing Felix's handy beauty tips with everyone after the cut.
First, let us begin with Bright Summer Makeup. This is great for those who want to sport a not-so-bright, bright makeup, if you know what I mean. Here are some interesting points I've picked up:
1. Bright makeup looks great on clear skin. Don't use too much foundation if you don't have to. (Ack! Guilty. :p)
2. If you want to wear Bright lipstick, but are a bit intimidated by it, apply it on the back of your hand first, use a deft finger to blend it and pick up a bit of color, and finally dab the color onto your lips to get a soft coverage.
Bonus: Don't overdo your brows. Heavy, drawn- on brows weigh the face down!
I wasn't able to catch the live demo of Career Makeup by Felix, but good thing a guest asked about Felix's top 5 beauty tips for career women during the Q&A portion. Felix mused:
1. Find that skin tone- correct foundation.
2. Always keep in hand your tried and tested products and have your own tried and tested look.
3. Find your go- to makeups.
4. Always have something to touch up with.
5. Always have a day to night option.
Love the no-nonsense tips, Felix!
After the lesson preview, we had the privilege to test out Bobbi's newest products like the Hot Collection featuring the brand's newest face, Kate Upton. Oh, the colors of the Art Sticks-they're the brightest and so far, the prettiest summer colors I've laid my eyes on! :D
My pick from the Hot Collection is Art Stick in Hot Orange. This versatile, chubby stick of color is a makeup artist favorite! It's so pretty that I had to share it right away on my IG page (it's @thebeautyjunkee, btw. Follow me! :D).
And that IG photo won as one of the best selfies of the event and it scored me a prize! Yay! :D
