Pretty powerful

Most of the time I plan my makeup look and my outfit has to work around that.

I have become completely mesmerized by the new Bobbi Brown Pretty Powerful Uber Basics collection and I know one thing; my New Year’s Eve party makeup is going to be exactly this.

Inspired by Bobbi’s seventh book, Pretty Powerful Beauty Stories, Bobbi introduces the Uber Basics collection – shades for every woman. This collection will give every woman – no matter her skin tone- the essentials she needs to go from Pretty to Pretty Powerful, day to night.

Highlighting the simplicity of Bobbi’s Uber Basic Look, the collection is organized into four colour stories, with a corresponding Eye Shadow, Sparkle Eye Shadow, Blush, Rich Lip Color and High Shimmer Lip Gloss.

My favourite is the Sparkle Eye shadow in Bone, a creamy sparkle that doesn’t fall out, patted over Taupe Matte Eye Shadow. I can’t go past a pretty flush of pink blush on the apples and the Nude Pink is perfect for a light flush of creamy pink. Finish off the look with the Uber Beige Rich Lip Color and High Shimmer lip gloss and you are guaranteed a kiss when the clock strikes 12 this NYE.
