The looks that I wanted to create was a 'glam day' look. I wanted that day into evening look that is effortless, yet also looks sophisticated. Sort of that 'Urban Day Event' look, where you go from your morning coffee, to drinking martini's by noon :) I honestly wish there was a career where I could just create names and descriptions for looks!!!
For this look, I started with the idea of a 'defined' party eye. I first created my base of concealer/foundation. I decided to by-pass the bronzer today and went straight for my Tawny blush and also applied Sand Pink as a pop of colour (both blushes are Bobbi Brown). I used Bobbi's eyeshadow Heather Mauve (NARS Lhasa is another favourite) from lid to just lightly into the crease. I used my new eyeliner brush to apply the Caviar gel liner. At first I created a very thin line, which would be perfect for a very natural look, but I wanted a little bit more 'oomph', so I went a little bit thicker. Caviar is described on the Bobbi Brown website as a 'deep black-brown' and it's simply amazing. I think that for a true smokey eye look, I would take the caviar power shadow and smudge it into this gel liner for a very smokey, 'caviar' look. However, that's another post. I finished my defined eye look with black mascara. For the lipstick, I went with Bobbi Brown's 'Brown' lipstick. I can't tell you how much I love this shade. In the past couple of days that I've been wearing this colour, I've been stopped by random people who asked me what colour I'm wearing. Also, when I was at Sephora the other day, picking up my Gel liner, one of the makeup artists also approached me to ask what lipstick I'm wearing because she 'loved it' on me. Since I've been wearing the Bobbi Brown product line, the compliments have been flowing - so there is something to be said about the products in this line. The best thing about Bobbi Brown makeup, I never get caught up with palette's or colour analysis. All the makeup colours Bobbi has are beautiful neutrals and they blend so nicely into the skin, that every look I create is natural and pretty :)
