I got an opportunity to attend Bobbi Brown Makeup Masterclass on 12th Sep at Selectcity Walk. Eduardo Ferreira, Director of Artistry & Education and Eliano Bou Assi, Manager of Artistry & Education taught us How to apply makeup & 5 minutes smokey eyes using Bobbi Brown products. Entire Session was lively, interactive and fun. Base Makeup Lesson By Eduardo Ferreira (Step by Step)Step 1 Moisturizer
Moisturizing is the key to keeping skin both hydrated and fresh. It also ensures concealer and foundation go on smoothly. Eduardo used Moisturizer & eye cream from Bobbi Brown skincare line.Step 2 Corrector & Concealer
Brighten & Neutralize undereye discoloration with corrector. Layer Creamy Concealer one shade lighter than your skintone over the corrector and set them with translucent powder.
That’s how the model looked with left undereye area corrected and concealed, difference is visible
Step 3 Foundation
Spot apply foundation around the nose and mouth using a brush or sponge. For all-over coverage use a foundation brush to apply and blend. Eduardo used Stick foundation which is sheer but buildable.
How to find the right shade
Swatch foundations above jawline and pat them , one that blends and disappears in to your skin is your best match.Step 4 Powder –
Set Foundation with loose powder. Use a powder puff or brush to set everything. Donot forget applying some near hairline.Step 5 Bronzer & Blush
Choose a bronzer shade that matches with the tone of your body. He chose a cinnamon toned bronzer for the model and applied it on the areas of her face where sunlight hits. Add a warm tint to skin with bronzing powder. For healthy flush layer two shades of blush ; a neutral shade and a brighter “pop” shade.Step 6 Lipstick & Liner
Use the natural color of your lips as a guide to find your perfect nude shade. For natural-looking perfect nude shade, line lips with lip liner after applying the lip color.
After these steps Eliano took over and taught us how to do 5 minutes smokey eyes.Step 1
