Bobbi Brown Makeover with Jamie Gummere


Hello, hello, hello VIP readers! So, I had the most amazing makeup experience of MY LIFE at Gus Mayer in Birmingham, Alabama! Jamie Gummere, professional makeup artist with Bobbi Brown, created the VIP a spectacular spring look that is so fun and sweet! I have some upcoming tutorial makeup videos where Jamie Gummere answers the VIP’s makeup questions, explains different makeup application techniques, demonstrates how to put on gel eyeliner, and much more! Oh, what fun it is getting makeovers and being a girly girl! Thank you, Gus Mayer, for introducing me to the fabulous Bobbi Brown line! It is so so SO amazing!


I have sensitive skin, so finding makeup that does NOT cause a skin reaction is quite the challenge. Since the beginnings of my wearing makeup, I have tried a variety of brands that advertised products made for sensitive skin. After many trips to various makeup counters, I finally found a color that did not make me look like a Cheese Nip, however, my skin still reacted to it…disappointment.  After that, I just gave up…I thought finding a skin friendly foundation was absolutely hopeless…but then, I had a Bobbi Brown makeover! I will admit that I went in a little skeptical, but Jammie Gummere (Bobbi Brown artist) matched my color perfectly, found me stunning skin friendly products, and gave me a fun new look for spring!

Oh, Bobbi Brown makeup is a miracle for me and my sensitive skin! The base is not heavy…or itchy; it feels light and airy while giving full coverage. The eye shadow selection is magnificent, and do not even get me started on the hydrating lip balm!  I am so impressed with Bobbi Brown cosmetics!


For all of you who have wondered what the VIP looks like without makeup, this picture is for y’all! No, it is not like the shocking paparazzi pictures we see of Snookie or a Kardashian without makeup…


See the finale of the makeover on my next YouTube video! Ooo just talking about

it makes me even more excited to show y’all!

Welcome back, fashionistas! I hope you all have had a fabulous New Year! It is the first Weekly Whistle of 2013! Wow…makes me think about what an adventure 2012 was for the VIP!

All of the fan emails and comments have made me work harder to achieve my dream of spreading the love of fashion-VIP style! Once again, thank you, fans, for all of your support! I cannot wait to see what 2013 has in store for me, Miss VIP!
