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!
