I became attached to Bobbi Brown cosmetics before I had my first boyfriend, went to my first prom, or even entered high school. You could say Bobbi has accompanied me on many firsts:) And today I’m still turning to her trusty products.
I saw an ad with the below Bobbi Babe back when I was about 14. So I made a stop by the counter, got the palette, and taped up the pic along with the artist’s instructions so that I could mimic her look. I’ve kept this cherished makeup memory ever since.
And when I used up the last morsel of product, I returned to Bobbi’s counter and tried to recreate it. I’ve been seeing a lot of this burgundy tone in fall fashions. So the hue is in its prime again, and I’m going to show you how to easily create this look.
To begin, dust a Bone Shimmer Shadow all over your lid. That will make your eyes instantly brighter. Next, brush a Wine Shadow on your lower lid. This is a beautiful color, but can become ultra-bold fast. If you’re going for more of a wine wash, like mine, then blot your brush with a tissue before using it. You can always add more color, but removing it mid-application can make a mess. Here’s a face diagram of what I’ve done.
Bobbi is no longer selling my exact eye crease color, but Mahogany is a similar tone. Using an Eye Smudge Brush, follow your half-moon eye crease. To keep your eyes looking big, avoid extending the shadow all the way to your inner corner. As a general rule, when it comes to crease color I stop mid-eye.
