5 THINGS I LEARNT AT A BOBBI BROWN MASTERCLASS


When I started blogging, I never thought I would be lucky enough to get an invite to a Bobbi Brown master class but when I got an email from the lovely Beth, I was absolutely over the moon. I was able to share the experience with the gorgeous Sacha and it wouldn’t have been the same without her. Being able to take someone along to a special event always makes for amazing memories.

We were greeted by some of the lovely Bobbi Brown girls who guided us downstairs to the master class space. The PRO Studio features an open area, which is dedicated to workshops, photography, videography and of course master classes. The space is perfect for creatives to enjoy expressing themselves whilst working and content creating. There were products, magazines, books and photographs around the space, which creates a comfortable but also incredibly inspiring area to be in.


  

  

The evening was led by Hannah, a pro make up artist at Bobbi Brown. Hannah demonstrated how to create a simple autumnal look which was perfect for me as I love the colder months and I don’t like to wear too much make up so win win! So without further ado, here are some of the tips that I took away from the master class. I thought I would share, as I feel I am an amateur when it comes to makeup and these points were super helpful so carry on reading and let me know what you think.

1. PREP YOUR SKIN
It’s all about the prep! Prepping your skin is key, without doing this, all your time and effort will be wasted. Make sure you exfoliate, tone, moisturise and then prime your face. This will allow your base to look flawless and your makeup will last.

2. USE YOUR HANDS
I thought it was a makeup taboo to use your fingers but actually, your hands make for the perfect tools. Warming liquids, applying glitter eye shadows and pressing powder can all be done without brushes so why not give it a try? If you want to read more, this article is very interesting.

3. PRIMER OR NOTHING
So I was doing this and always wondered why my eyeshadow creased. Don’t put concealer on your eyelid to act as a primer, as it will just crease throughout the day. Concealer contains oil whereas eye primers are mattifying and get rid of oils on your lid so it’s harder for eye makeup to smudge or fade during the day. Keep concealer for spots and blemishes, not eyelids.

4. LESS IS MORE
You don’t always have to apply a ridiculous amount of makeup to look good; makeup is there to enhance your natural beauty. If you’re in a rush, apply the bare minimum such as mascara, blush and brows as you will have a perfectly framed face. Let your beauty show!

5. DOUBLE UP ON PRODUCTS
Your favourite makeup products can be used in several places. Bobbi Brown pot rouge is the perfect multitasking tool as you can use it as a lip tint but also a blush, what more could you want from a product? Hannah even said she uses her favourite lipsticks as a blush to give her cheeks a pop of colour.

Sacha and I were well and truly spoilt and couldn’t be more grateful for the amazing time we had! An evening full of chats, coffee and contour, what more could two girls want? Thank you to everyone at Bobbi Brown, we loved every minute!

  2. I feel like I forget about using my fingers now I have a brush obsession. Lesson learnt, my fingers can now be used.

  3. I've recently began using my fingers when applying my make up and it's great! So much cheaper than having to buy beauty blenders every couple of months.
