3 Easy Steps with Best Bobbi Brown Basics – From Day, Night to Party Looks!

Day Look

Ten minutes is all you need to create a polished day look.

1. To create a classic eye, choose three Eye Shadows :
light, medium and dark.

• Sweep Bone Eye Shadow from lash line to brow bone.
• Dust the Cement Eye Shadow from lid to crease, blending for depth.
Black Chocolate Eye Shadow doubled as the perfect eye-liner for this
polished look.

2. For a pretty glow, sweep Blush on the apples of the cheeks, blending up towards the hairline then downwards to soften the color.

3. Finish with Lip Color or Lip Gloss in a shade that looks like your lips.

Night Look

Focus on freshening up what you’re already wearing.

• Smudge a medium-dark Eye Shadow in the crease of the eye and intensify your liner to instantly up your glamour quotient.

• Top your daytime Blush with a brighter blush applied just on the apples of the cheeks.

• Layering Lip Color and Lip Gloss creates a rich, lush look.

Party Look

It’s all about adding texture and pumping up definition.
• For easy glamour, nothing beats Sparkle Eye Shadow. Try a light sparkly shade on the browbones—it’s a real eye brightener.

• To intensify your eye look, use a dry Eye Liner Brush to apply dark Eye Shadow along the lashline. Next, dampen the brush, dip it into the same shadow and go over the first line to create a stronger, bolder line.
