We’re here to present to you, Bobbi Brown’s first Spring/Summer 2014 range of make-up – the Nude Glow collection. It consists of three easy-to-use limited-edition eye palettes, brightening finishing powders, sheer lip colours and nail polishes, and is designed to give you a natural glow that will even out and brighten up any dull complexion! We were given first hand experience of trying out the collection for ourselves and were more than impressed by how naturally luminous our skin looked after.
Bobbi Brown herself describes this collection as, “Luminosity combined with skin tone-enhancing colour”! Point taken, with Mizz Katie Holmes.
Limited Edition Brightening Finishing Powder in Brightening Nudes, Porcelain Pearl & Bronze Glow (RM200)
Not only are there six brightening shades all packed into one palette to brighten and illuminate your skin, but it is also formulated with Mulberry, Grape and Scutellaria extracts, which are all brightening ingredients. For an instantly brighter complexion, blend the shades together and swipe onto your cheeks, forehead, nose and chin.
Bobbi’s Make-Up Tip For Skin: Choose a skin-tone correct foundation formula that provides a flawless matte finish – it’s the ideal canvas for the Nude Glow look. If skin is overly shiny or dewy, the make-up won’t sit well on the skin and can look greasy.
Bobbi’s Make-Up Tip For Cheeks: Apply a pop of pink blush onto the apples of the cheeks for an instantly lifted look. For a pretty, all-over glow, lightly dust Brightening Finishing Powder all over the face, excluding the eye area, with a Face Blender Brush.
Limited Edition Nail Polish in Nail Polish in Pale, Glitter Nail Polish in Ballet Pink & Shimmer Nail Polish in Bronze (RM54)
Choose from three classically polished shades that will outlast any trend, and give life to dull fingers with nails that will look natural, pretty and clean.
Limited Edition Eye Palette in Crystal, Bronze and Nude Glow
Bobbi’s latest eye palettes were created in quads of different textures, tones and finishes, which range from matte and a dim shimmer to a brilliant sparkle, and can be worn separately or layered on one another to give your look depth and a little added drama.
Bobbi’s Make-Up Tip For Eyes:Using the Eye Shadow Brush, apply Ivory Eye Shadow from the lash line to the brow bone, then follow with with New Nude Eye Shadow on the lower lid. Then, follow with a layer of New Cement Sparkle Eye Shadow, for a subtle hint of sparkle. For a pretty, brightening effect, apply New Ballet Pink Sparkle Eye Shadow in the inner corners of the eyes. Next, apply Smoke Long-Wear Eye Pencil along the upper lashline and follow by using the New Dove Grey Eye Shadow along the bottom lash line to give a more subtle definition than the top liner. Finish with a couple of coats of really black mascara.
Limited Edition Sheer Lip Colour in Pink Gold, Pink Rose & Pink Flush
Made with Shea Butter, Murumuru Butter and Apricot Kernel Oils, this sheer lip colour will give your lips a healthy and pretty tinge of colour. The formula is lightweight and easy to use and will keep your lips moist and nourished, even improving its condition over a period of use.
Bobbi’s Make-Up Tip For Lips: To complement Katie’s natural lip colour, we applied Pink Gold Sheer Lip Colour onto her lips straight from the tube. The perfect shade of lipstick enhances the skin tone and gives the face a lift. For added shine or an evening out, add a layer of Glitter Crystal Lip Gloss.
