Believe it or not Bobbi Brown began her makeup line with only ten shades of lipstick in 1991 that were sold exclusively in Bergdorf Goodman. Now, its hard to walk through a department store without the urge to stop at her counter to check out the latest Shimmer Brick or seasoned palettes.
Being a makeup artist in high demand (especially during New York fashion week), Bobbi still finds ways to make herself accessible to the general public. She just released "Makeup Manual," which is a guide on how to apply your makeup in ten minutes or less.
"I wanted this book to serve as a complete reference guide for everyone who wants to know about beauty and makeup. It's filled with complete step-by-step lessons, industry tips and beautiful pictures," comments Bobbi.
I'm a big fan of anything I can do in under ten minutes to speed up my beauty routine in the morning. It's an easy to read, practical makeup map for the non-makeup artist.
Bobbi also has quick makeup tutorials on You Tube that are very educational. Check out one of her latest on choosing the right cheek and lip color for your skin tone. Hint: To find the perfect lipstick that works with your lip color match the shade to the color of your inner lip.
Bobbi Brown's "Makeup Manual" can be purchased here for $32.
