Makeup redux: Lovin' Bobbi Brown
Now I'm ready to go to the next level. For my brother's wedding, I need a little more bang in my makeup kit. Like blush, and **blushing here** another basic called eye shadow.
So I visited the Bobbi Brown counter at Nordstrom. A kind cosmetics consultant gave me a full makeover, even though I explained that I wasn't going to buy much. I was given a beautiful face -- and a list of several hundred dollars in beauty products that created it.
Bobbi Brown gets my vote as the most natural-looking, yet full coverage line of makeup I have tried. Here's where I splurged and scrimped:
Just as many of you raved, Bobbi Brown's blush took my breath away. I already am glad that I made a $20 investment in a coral shade. I also fell in love at first sight with a light pink lipstick that is basically my natural shade, perfected. Why isn't everything in life for sale like that?
I tried three eye colors in brown, bone and taupe that were lovely, but at $20 a pop, I had to economize. So I found the same color palate in a L'Oreal Paris Andie MacDowell eye collection, which for $5 at CVS seemed like a good enough substitute to get started.
The only other thing I need is a lip gloss, and I think a drugstore variety in clear or light pink should work. Any suggestions?
