Beauty Notebook: Going Backstage with Bobbi Brown
The make-up experts at Bobbi Brown crafted looks for Tibi, Elie Tahari and Misha Nonoo at New York Fashion Week Fall Winter 2015. The ‘Pretty Powerful’ team stuck to their signature nude line, while aiming for a healthy glow. Follow these face charts and product guides, and try out these New York-Inspired runway looks.
What we learnt from Bobbi Brown’s beauty notebook:
1. If you’re wearing prints, or any attention-grabbing outfit, keep the make-up minimal. Stick to nudes and browns that go with your skin tone.
2. Illuminated skin is big this season.
3. Cara Delevingne’s strong brows can take a hike. Embrace your naturally defined brows.
4. Your blush can double up as an eye shadow. Must try.
LOOK 1 for Elie Tahari
Game Plan: Elie Tahari’s Fall 2015 collection took on soft but edgy shapes and textures with fringed suede, bonded shearling and laser cut pony leathers. To complement this collection, the make-up was fresh and glowing. The cheeks had a delicate flush of pink, eyes were softly sand swept and lips were given a sheer pop of natural pink.
