Hello, fabulouses, and welcome back to Beauty Tues.
This week on VIP Beauty Tues, I want to share with y’all a super fabulous 2-in-1 makeup look for the college campus with Bobbi Brown beauty specialist Becca Sammis at Saks Fifth Avenue Birmingham.
Look 1: “This look is perfect for day-time activities on campus. It is fresh looking and easy to do, but it is also flirty and age-appropriate,” explains Becca Sammis.
“Creating a natural yet sassy eye is simple. On Abby, I used Bobbi’s Metallic Eye Shadow in Champagne Quartz and Burnt Sugar. These pretty shades will make creating the second look [the smokey eye] super easy. I also lined the eye with the Bobbi Brown long wear gel liner in Black Ink.” http://instagram.com/p/qfBmqAtJtd/?modal=true
For the lips (see video above)–Becca Sammis punched up the simple day-time look with a pinky lip…and being the lipstick addict that I am, I totally adore it! It’s so fun and so effortless!
Look 2: “This makeup look is great for nigh-time events. Rather than worrying about making time to take off all of your day-time makeup, I created this smokey-eye look by building on the [first] look,” explains Becca Sammis “You can really see how big of a difference a darker shade of eye shadow makes…it turned the day look into a smokey eye without a lot of time and energy. So many people think achieving a smokey eye look is really hard, when in all actuality, you just need varying shadow shades, a black [eye] liner, and a great brush–oh, and some under-eye concealer for touch ups,” says Becca Sammis.
“When going with a smokey-eye, it is very important to play down your lips. For an easy way to achieve a natural-looking lip with a bit of color, I recommend using one of Bobbi’s lip pencils. They come in a variety of colors and are easy to toss in your bag and go.”
LOVE this color–don’t y’all? *wink* It is so simple…yet so chic!
“Also for night time, add a bit of bronzer to the face for a sun-kissed glimmer that looks great when the lights go down.”
Who would have thought that creating two makeup looks–one for day and one for night–could be so easy! Thank you, Becca Sammis, for opening up my eyes to the fabulous versatility of Bobbi Brown products! You’re the best!
