Bobbi Brown Ultimate Makeup Lesson

Step 1
Skincare
Step 1
Skincare
Moisturize skin to refresh and prep it for concealer and foundation. Allow moisturizer to absorb completely before applying makeup.

TIP: When skin is especially dry, try layering moisturizers.

Step 2
Corrector & Concealer
Step 2
Corrector & Concealer
Start with Corrector to brighten and neutralize under eye discoloration, beginning at the inner corner of eyes where skin tends to be darkest. Layer on Creamy Concealer—in a shade that’s slightly lighter than your skin tone—and gently pat to blend. Use a Concealer Brush for the most precise application and hard-to-reach spots.
Step 3
Foundation
Step 3
Foundation
Apply foundation beginning around the nose and mouth where there is often redness. Blend out to the rest of the face if needed. Foundation can be applied with fingers, a Foundation Brush or a Makeup Sponge.

Tip: You know you’re using the correct shade of foundation if it disappears into your skin.

Step 4
Powder & Bronzer
Step 4
Powder & Bronzer
For a longer-lasting look, set concealer and foundation with sheer face powder in your skin tone correct shade; use the Eye Blender Brush under the eyes and the Sheer Power Brush on the rest of the face. Follow with bronzer, applied where the sun normally hits your face: forehead, cheeks, nose and chin. Finish with a touch on your neck and ears for the most natural effect.
Step 5
Cheeks
Step 5
Cheeks
To add a natural glow, apply blush to the apples of the cheeks, blending up towards the hairline then downward to soften color.
Step 6
Lips
Step 6
Lips
A nude lip instantly makes you looked polished. To find your best nude, look at the natural coloring of your lips and choose a shade that matches or is one or two shades brighter or darker. To give lips natural-looking definition, line lips with Lip Pencil afterwards. Finish with gloss for a high-shine look.
Step 7
Brows
Step 7
Brows
For the most natural look, fill in brows with powder shadow applied with an Eye Brow Brush; use the Eye Definer Brush for more definition. Start at the inner corner of the brow or where the brow is most sparse and end at the outer corner of the brow, applying shadow in light feathery strokes. Tame unruly brow hairs with brow shaper.
Step 8
Eye Shadow
Step 8
Eye Shadow
To create the signature Bobbi Brown look, you’ll need three shadows: a light base shade, a medium lid shade and a dark liner shade. Apply the light shade from the lashline to browbone to neutralize any redness or discoloration in the eyelid. Sweep the medium shade on the lower lid, up to the crease. If the shade looks muddy on the skin, it’s too dark. If it looks ashy on the skin, it’s too light.
Step 9
Eyeliner
Step 9
Eyeliner
Line the upper lashline with a dark Eye Shadow and the Eye Liner Brush; for stronger definition, dampen brush before dipping into shadow. For a longer-lasting look, try Long-Wear Gel Eyeliner.

Tip: If you also line the lower lashline, make sure top and bottom liner meet at the outer corner of the eye.

Step 10
Mascara
Step 10
Mascara
Apply 2 to 3 coats of mascara, brushing from base to tips of lashline. Roll the wand as you go to separate lashes and avoid clumps. The Finished Look: Fresh, polished and beautiful.
