The secret to perfect skin - part two.

A healthy diet and a good skin care routine delivers on the promise of good skin, but how do we reach perfection? 

I was left with beautifully plump and glowing skin after the Bobbi Brown skin care routine discussed in Part One.  Next we aim for flawless excellence, or the closest thing to it.  To achieve this, Bobbi not only mastered the ultimate skin care regime but she also produced a makeup range to suit every skin type.

MAKEUP USED:

The makeup products listed below were suggested to suit my skin tone and type.  These products are carefully formulated and can be personalised to suit your needs.  Visit your nearest Bobbi Brown store for more information on their workshops.

1.  BOBBI BROWN CORRECTOR - "LIGHT TO MEDIUM BISQUE".

Applied before the Creamy Concealer, this peach- or pink-based product neutralizes dark under-eye circles and wakes up the complexion.  Easy to use and even easier when applied after the skin has been prepped with a Bobbi Brown eye cream.

2.  BOBBI BROWN CREAMY CONCEALER KIT - "COOL SAND" 

The perfect product to use over a Corrector to brighten the eyes further.  I personally adore this product for the fact that you can conceal-and-set on the go as well as for the smooth, long lasting and creaseless finish.  

3.  BOBBI BROWN SKIN FOUNDATION STICK - "WARM SAND".

Creamy, weightless, natural, healthy-looking and long lasting are but a few words to describe this iconic foundation.  Sheer perfection.  Applied from the nose and blended outwards, you are left with refreshed and more awake-looking skin. 

4.  BOBBI BROWN SHEER FINISH PRESSED POWDER - "PALE YELLOW".

This oil absorbing powder finishes off the foundation beautifully.  According to Bobbi Brown, translucent powders can make you look ashy but this pressed powder creates a flawless finish and corrects colour.  Apply powder in the T-zone or the areas that need it most.

5.  BOBBI BROWN BRONZING POWDER - "GOLDEN LIGHT".

Great bronzers are hard to come by but the search ends here.  Soft, matte, silky and smooth for a year round sun-kissed look.  If colour needs to be corrected, bronze the neck lightly rather than applying foundation.  Bronzer is applied wherever the sun would hit your face naturally.

6.  BOBBI BROWN BLUSH - "DESERT ROSE".

Healthy looking skin is the final requirement, and with this gorgeous, matte and long lasting blush you can bring life back to your cheeks.

I always say it is called "concealer" not "conceal her" and this workhsop proved that once again.  A little bit goes a long way and the results were immaculate.  My skin looked like skin, only better.  Contact your nearest Bobbi Brown store for more information on the many workshops they have to offer and follow them on Facebook for updates.  You can also follow me on Twitter for more beauty posts or see all social media links below.
