When it comes to make-up collections and seasonal releases, Bobbi Brown is without a doubt top of my list. I’m always keen to see what they do next and I love how they manage to tweak and reinvent the different takes on flattering neutral make-up options and make it desirable, wearable and unique all at the same time. One of the latest examples of this is the Navy and Nude collection – there are a whole host of different products from this collection that deserve a mention but I decided to focus on my top two choices. A stunning highlighter for a pretty glow and a jelly type lip gloss for a rosy lips look that’s pretty and natural at the same time.
The All Over Brightening Brick is a great alternative to the uber-shimmery ‘Shimmer Brick’ from Bobbi Brown – offering a more subtle glow it adds that bit of brightening all over, but a nice highlight if focussed on the cheekbones. It’s an ideal during the day glow-giver without leaving yourself looking like a glitter ball. Plus the combination of peachy pinky shades really perk up skin.
Then there’s the gorgeous sheer lipgloss in ‘Sailor’ – what a perfect name for a navy and nude collection!? This shade is described as a rosy pink tint, and I guess that’s about right. It’s definitely rosy, leaning towards the sheer red side of things. But there’s definitely a pinkyness to it too. I’m not usually a lipgloss sort of girl, but I like how this is a sheer colour wash rather than a creamy colour. It does add colour, but still manages to look quite natural at the same time.
For the face shots above I used these two as the main products, plus the Bobbi Brown BB cream as a base, a touch of Aerin Bronzer for a bit of colour on the cheeks (didn’t want to go blusher to compete with the lip shade) and lashings of mascara (Clinique Waterproof). A simple look that sticks on the natural side of things as usual – another thing I love Bobbi Brown for!
The collection is limited edition, so if you want it – track it down asap! There’s also a lovely bronzing gel in the collection if you want to keep your Summer glow going!
