Makeup Tutorial: The 10-Step Makeup Look By Bobbi Brown

30 December 2010
Beauty guru Bobbi Brown always creates the prettiest fresh-faced looks and below, she teaches us how to go from drab to fab in 10 easy steps. Read on for each step and to see my take on the look!

Before you start, always apply an oil-free moisturizer and eye cream to help your makeup go on smoothly. Right now I’m really digging Nuxe Sérum Crème Fraîche de Beauté 24 Hr Moisturizing Anti-fatigue Concentrate.

Step 1: Corrector/Concealer
For very dark undereye circles, start with a corrector to cut through the darkness under the eye. Next, use a yellow-toned concealer one shade lighter to brighten the undereye area.

What I Use: Bobbi Brown Corrector in Light to Medium Bisque and Bobbi Brown Creamy Concealer Kit in Beige

Step 2: Foundation
Apply foundation only on areas that need to be evened out with your fingers or a makeup sponge.

Step 3: Powder/Bronzer
Set your concealer with loose powder. If you have an oily t-zone, apply powder to the rest of your face. Dust a bronzer over cheeks, forehead, nose and chin to add warmth to the skin.

Step 4: Blush
Smile and dust a neutral shade of blush on the apples of the cheeks. Blend up towards the hairline then downwards to soften color. Layer a pop of bright blush only on the apples for a longer lasting look.

What I Use: MAC Mineralize Blush Duo in Love Rock

Step 5: Lipstick/Gloss
For the most flattering lipstick shade, use the natural coloring of your lips as a guide choose a color that matches or is slightly darker than your lips.

What I Use: MAC Viva Glam VI Special Edition Lipstick

Step 6: Lipliner
Line your lips after applying lip color to avoid feathering and add natural-looking definition. Use a lip brush to soften and blend any hard edges.

What I Use: MAC Cremestick Pearl Liner in Gingerroot

Step 7: Brows
Define brows with a shadow that matches your hair color. Begin at the inner corner of the brow and follow its natural shape using light, feathery strokes. To soften too-harsh brow color, press loose powder onto brows with a powder puff.

Step 8: Eyeshadow
Sweep a light eyeshadow color from lashline to browbone using a brush. Dust a medium color on the lower lid and up to the crease.

Step 9: Eyeliner
Line the upper lashline with a dark eyeshadow. Dampen the brush before dipping into eyeshadow for a longer-lasting look. Alternatively, use a gel eyeliner. If you line the lower lashline, make sure the top and bottom liner meet at the outer corner of the eye.

Step 10: Mascara
Curl your lashes and apply mascara by brushing from the base to tip. Roll the wand to separate lashes and avoid clumps.
