Bobbi Brown: Eyes & Lips Make-up

Following my post about ,

now Bas Hokke, Bobbi Brown National Marke-up Artist Benelux, shows me how to make-up my eyes and lips. I’ve never imagined for a natural make-up that a pink (!) could gloss fits me.

But the product I really like is Lip Balm SPF15 : a stonished nourrishing comfortable and really sexy balm (picture above, step 6). I don’t need more on my lips. Step 8 : Bas applies the left eyeshadow (1) on all the eyelid. I really like it, cause my eye looked like smaller and perfectely shaped. The second eyeshadow was applied on the lower lid.

Step 9 & 10 : then Bas applies the eyeliner Caviar with a thin brush, before the Lash Glamour mascara. I love the glem names of these two products : so me! The finish was very natural and my friends love it! Sounds a bit like I was super ugly before (lol)! Understand why I hate make-up!!!

If you don’t know “how to” use make-up, run baby run to a  Bobbi Brown studio! The BobbiBrownMakeUpLessons_ENG are free and by appoitement only.

Bobbi Brown: maquillage des lèvres et des yeux

Voici la suite de mon post sur .

Pris dans son élan, Bas Hokke, le maquilleur responsable Benelux de Bobbi Brown, m’a montré comment maquiller mes yeux et mes lèvres. Je n’aurai jamais imaginé porter un gloss rose (!) en paraissant très naturelle.

Mais le produit qui m’a le plus plu est le Lip Balm SPF15 : juste fantastique, traitant, confortable et très sexy (photo ci-dessus, step 6). Pour moi, inutile d’en mettre plus. Step 8 : l’ombre de gauche (1), la plus claire s’applique sur toute la paupière. J’aime beaucoup, car mon oeil paraîssait plus petit et mieux dessiné. La seconde ombre s’applique uniquement sur le bas de la paupière.

Step 9 & 10 : on applique eyeliner Caviar au pinceau avant le mascara Lash Glamour. Le rendu était très naturel et a fait l’unanimité dans mon entourage, avec une pluie de compliments! A croire qu’avant je ne ressemblais à rien (lol)!

Si vous ne savez pas vous maquillez, n’hésitez pas à prendre R.V. au studio Bobbi Brown, les leçons de maquillage sont gratuites. Voici en PDF, la liste des leçons proposées : BobbiBrownMakeUpLessons_ENG.

Bobbi Brown: How to make a perfect complexion

If I tell you I’m a dummy in make-up,

a very lazy girlsh hates bad skins hidden tacky make-up! I’ve always been (a bit) suspicious about make-up (lol)! That why I bravely decided  to have an appointement @ the Bobbi Brown studio for testing a great “naturel” complexion.

I meet Bas Hokke (last picture), stainless steel blue eyes and National Marke-up Artist Benelux. Before taking care of my complexion, he explains me : “Here we look first at the great parts of a face to show off them. We don’t focuss to the less nice parts and we don’t want to hide or change them. We provide individual free Make-up Lessons ( by R.V.), to learn women how to make-up and to help them to choice the right colors and products. Each lesson is dedicated to a specific purpose: complexion, lips, eyes“. 

So let’s start the “the perfect natural complexion”! Each step is illustrated by pictures of the products Bas used for my skin. Step 1 : absolut must do, the cleansing. These gentle products can be used by sensitive skins. Ingredients are natural, paraben free and hypollergenic.I really like the light nourrishing texture of the Hydrating Eye Cream (3).

Step 2 : First we choice for the corrector and concelear, the colors that perfectly matches with my skin tone. In my case, I need two different colours : one a little bit lighter than my skin for the corrector (1). And one a little bit darker than the corrector for the concelear (2). Bas recommends me to use brushes to apply less quantity of products. The texture penetrates better and more uniformly.

Step 3 : To find the right foundation colour, Bas applies two shades of the Touch Up Stick. On s’appercoit que la nuance la plus claire grise le teint. On n’oublie pas d’appliquer une protection solaire après la crème hydratante et avant le maquillage.

Step 4 : apply a very few amount of powder, Bobbi Brown thinks that a nice looking healthy skin shines a little bit. And I also think when my skin is too mate, it misses brightness.

You can add a step 5 : for the blush. But me I’m not found of. Bas choose for me a colour that reminds the pink of my lips. And we’ve done with the natural perfect complexion steps : I’m supposed to do it @ home in 20 minutes.

Honestely I haven’t tried yet! But I can tell you the result is WOW! You discover yourself natural, with a little twist that makes the difference! unfortunately I don’t have nay picture : the complexion is better with a natural light. Thanks Bas!
