Bobbi Brown Friday

Happy Friday everyone! I hope that you have some great plans for the weekend, if you are working and I have just put my foot in it I think you deserve to treat yourself when your shift is over!

Not too long ago I blogged about my new found love for Bobbi Brown and today I am just going to keep heaping it on ya.
After not wearing make up for a bit, this morning I decided to add a bit of colour to my face. Now as I was staying at home I didn't want to go all out but just wanted a nice fresh look that hopefully H2B would notice when he gets home from work.
As I wanted to go understated yet fresh I knew that Bobbi was where to go, and this is what I came up with.

It's so difficult taking photo's of yourself but what can I do? lol

Now I kinda like this look the only thing I think I got wrong was putting a finishing powder over the top because as you can see mega shine on the forehead.
My base was a new Liz Earle product but I am going to post about that at another time.
The rest of the look was made up of 4 Bobbi Brown products.
I love a product that can multi task and I have found it in my most lusted after shimmer brick. I have Pink Quartz. I used a Long wear cream shadow in Sand Dollar as my eye base and then I layered up using the shimmer brick. It is made up of shades of pink and bronze which when swept over the lid gave a lovely yet subtle bronzed sheen, perfect for a natural look.

Then came the blush. Another product that people go crazy for is Pot Rouge and i have the pale pink.
I added this on to the apples of my cheeks for a nice flush and I could not resist doubling up on this too and used this on my lips. You can dab it on to create a almost matte finish or use it over balm for a slightly glossier touch.
Finished of with 1 coat of  Extreme Party mascara in Black and I was done.

I was happy with this for a easy day look and this of course has only deepened my love for
Bobbi Brown.
