Perfect Make Up with Bobbi Brown

In beauty, make up on March 18, 2010 at 12:32 pm

Kalian salah sangka kalo kalian kira Bobbi Brown yang aku maksud di sini adalah penyanyi berkulit hitam, suami dari Whitney Houston. Nope!!

Bobbi Brown yang kali ini aku bahas adalah make up artis yang sangat terkenal dan memiliki produk kecantikan sendiri, Bobbi Brown Cosmetics.

Bobbi Brown lahir tahun 1951 awalnya seorang penata rias teater, dan kemudian ia pindah ke New York sebagai penata rias profesional. Bobbi dipercaya untuk menjadi penata rias di sejumlah sampul majalah dan fashion show. Bobbi terkenal dengan gaya riasan yang natural, dengan campuran warna-warna tanahnya. Sebagian besar produk kecantikan seperti eye shadow dan blush on mengarah pada warna-warna alam seeperti coklat, beige, dan peach.

Tidak puas hanya memiliki produk kecantikannya sendiri, Bobbi pun menulis buku seperti Bobbi Brown Beauty, Bobbi Brown Teenage Beauty, dan Bobbi Brown Beauty Evolution (sumber: Wikipedia).

Bobbi memiliki 11 langkah kecantikan yang membantu kita tampil maksimal sehari-hari  berikut ini (sumber:www.bobbibrowncosmetics.com) :

  • Moisturizer : Moisturizer gives skin a fresh look and creates the perfect base for makeup. Be sure to hydrate the delicate undereye area with a lightweight Eye Cream to ensure concealer goes on smoothly and evenly.

  • Concealer/Corrector : For very dark undereye circles, start with a Corrector to cut through the darkness under the eye. Next, use a yellow-toned Creamy Concealer one shade lighter than your complexion to brighten the undereye area. Using the Concealer Brush, apply Concealer as close as possible to the lashline, and on the innermost corner of the eye. Gently pat the concealer with your fingers to blend it in.

  • Foundation: Swatch a few shades of yellow-toned Foundation on the side of your face and check the colors in natural light. The shade that disappears is the right one. Use your fingers or a makeup sponge to spot-apply foundation where skin needs to be evened out (around the nose and mouth where there’s redness). For full, all-over coverage, use a Foundation Brush to apply and blend foundation.
  • Powder/Bronzer : For crease-free wear, apply Loose Powder over concealer using an Eye Blender or Powder Puff. If you have an oily t-zone, apply powder to the rest of your face using a Powder Puff or Powder Brush.To add a warm tint to skin, dust Bronzing Powder over cheeks, forehead, nose, and chin using the Bronzer Brush.
  • Blush : Smile and dust a neutral shade of Blush on the apples of cheeks with the Blush Brush. Blend up towards the hairline, then downwards to soften color. Layer a pop of bright blush (applied just on the apples of cheeks) over the neutral shade for a longer lasting look.
  • Lipstick/Gloss : Use the natural coloring of your lips as a guide when choosing your everyday Lipstick shade. The most flattering shade will either match or be slightly darker than your lips.

  • Lip Liner : For natural-looking definition and to keep color from feathering, line lips with Lip Liner after applying lip color. Use the Lip Brush to soften and blend any hard edges.
  • Brow : For the most natural look, define brows with Eye Shadow that matches your hair color; use the Eye Brow Brush or Eye Definer Brush (if you have sparse brows) to apply shadow. Begin at the inner corner of the brow and follow its natural shape using light, feathery strokes. Soften too-harsh brow color by pressing Loose Powder onto brows with a Powder Puff.
  • Eye Shadow : Sweep a light Eye Shadow color from lashline to browbone using the Eye Shader Brush. Dust a medium Eye Shadow color on the lower lid, up to the crease, using the Eye Shadow Brush.

  • Eye Liner : Line the upper lashline with a dark Eye Shadow color applied with the Eyeliner Brush. For a longer-lasting look, dampen brush before dipping into shadow. Or, use Long-Wear Gel Eyeliner and the Ultra Fine Eyeliner Brush. If you also line the lower lashline, make sure top and bottom liner meet at the outer corner of the eye.
  • Mascara : True black Mascara makes the most impact. Choose brown for a softer look. When applying mascara, brush from base of lashes to tips while rolling the wand to separate lashes and avoid clumps. If you choose to curl lashes, be sure to do this before applying mascara; curling lashes after mascara makes them more prone to breakage.

Selamat mencoba tips dari Bobbi Brown dan pastikan kulit kita sehat dengan banyak minum air putih dan istirahat yang cukup.

Baru-baru ini, Bobbi Brown Cosmetic mengeluarkan produk terbarunya yang bertitel Cobana Coral. Warna-warnanya didominasi warna coral tentunya yang mewarnai wajah sehari-hari.

Yummy banget kan warnanya.. Itulah ciri khas Bobbi Brown. Saat ini, agen resmi Bobbi Brown di Indonesia setahuku belum ada. Untuk mendapatkannya, kita harus nyeberang dulu ke Singapore dan Malaysia. Mudah-mudahan suatu saat nanti ada distibutor resmi Bobbi Brown ya boo..
