As you know, March is International Women's Month— and who better to launch a powerful campaign, than Bobbi Brown Cosmetics. Everything they do is about empowering women to be their best selves, so I’m very pleased to reveal the launch of the Pretty Powerful Campaign for Women and Girls, Bobbi Brown Cosmetics’ first-ever global charitable initiative.
This worldwide movement, launching this Friday, March 8th, is dedicated to empowering women and girls with education, resources, job skills and work experience and will aim to help them “be who they are.” The campaign will raise funds through the sale of a limited-edition Pretty Powerful Pot Rouge ($25) and via GlobalGiving.org. In the U.S., every cent of the proceeds from sales of the Pretty Powerful Pot Rouge will go to Dress for Success, which Bobbi has worked with for years.
In Bobbi’s words, “makeup alone cannot even the playing field for women and girls across the world, but I believe that together, those who create, apply, buy and wear makeup can.”

The much anticipated Bobbi Brown ad campaign image featuring Bobbi Brown Cosmetics celebrity spokesperson Katie Holmes, debuted today at counters. I must say that I think she is the perfect face for the brand.
Katie is wearing the NEW Long-Wear Even Finish Compact Foundation in Natural, which is said to represent Bobbi’s philosophy of effortless natural beauty. Long-Wear Even Finish Compact Foundation is available in 20 shades.
“I’ve always been a fan of her makeup, because it’s so easy to apply. Her color palettes aren’t extreme, so when I first started wearing makeup it felt comfortable and I didn’t feel like I had too much on, which can happen. And then I met her, and she is just a lovely person – so generous. I think that it’s so exciting what she’s built with this company. She’s an incredible woman. So I’m thrilled on so many levels.”

Nick Barose, once again shares his magic with us! Recently, he glammed up the gorgeous Sarah Shahi, from the show Fairly Legal. The look was from premiere in NYC for her new film Bullet to the Head with Stallone.
” We went with mauvy, cool tone pinks on eyes and lips instead of the usual fresh girly pinks because we wanted a more sophisticated sexy look of cool pinks as opposed to girly, fresh faced which regular bright pink make up would create”
GET THE LOOK:
Look for icy pink with a hint of blue, cool tones in it so you can wear pink and look more grown up as opposed to overly sweet and girly.
Bobbi Brown is one of the makeup lines that I often recommend to my clients, because of it’s simplicity and ease of use. I have never found a color, or palette that doesn’t compliment the person in my chair, or make them feel beautiful (without feeling overly made up). For this week’s New York Fashion Week, Bobbi Brown worked with her new celebrity face, Katie Holmes for her Holmes & Yang Fall Fashion Show.
There is something to be said about starting off the New Year with a fresh start, and a new spring in our step. And, I believe the same should be said about your makeup routine.
I am personally loving the new launch by Bobbi Brown Cosmetics. Her new “Brighten, Sparkle & Glow” collection is full of products that perk up the skin, and add a shimmer to the face. During the winter gloom, these are the type of products I crave. Something that revives my glow.
The Collection Includes:
My favorites from the line include:
The Brightening Finish Powder: Bobbi Brown has said that she uses this powder “when she needs a lift”. I couldn’t agree more. It hydrates with mulberry and grape extracts and keeps the skin looking refreshed.
“Over the years I’ve worked with countless women who have inspired me with their stories. Beyond makeup, we’ve talked about life-altering events. Everything from the joy of being a new mom to dealing with homelessness and divorce. With each conversation, these women have shown that when you have the will and the heart, almost anything is possible—and that’s what Pretty Powerful is all about.” – Bobbi Brown
Bobbi Brown cosmetics has always been the go-to brand that I turn to when I want to find makeup that will help me and my clients create a beautiful, classic look. Her makeup, and her whole approach to enhancing women’s natural beauty instead of camouflaging it is something that I embrace and encourage wholeheartedly.
Her newest book Pretty Powerful is amazing. I couldn’t recommend it more, because I found myself inspired and passionate about all the women in the book, and the principles behind Bobbi Browns message. AND, she thinks “concealer is the secret to the universe” and I do too. Not only that, but her correct and conceal palette is one of the best.
