“I believe that all women are pretty without makeup – but with the right makeup can be pretty powerful.” – Bobbi Brown
Bobbi Brown is a makeup artist; highly successful businesswoman; beauty editor; bestselling author, and holds a degree in theatrical makeup. It’s safe to say that expectations are pretty high when it comes to her advice. Pretty Powerful is her latest beauty tome, filled not with tutorials for makeup that hides and conceals, but that which makes the best of what you naturally are.
It’s for this reason that’s we’re huge fans of Bobbi’s book, and her philosophy as a whole. How can you not love someone whose approach to beauty and make up is all about inspiring confidence?
Pretty Powerful features before and after shots, but there’s no Photoshopping here! Starting with beauty basics, she moves on to a range of looks – from Pretty Natural to Pretty Bold. There’s tips and tricks along the way with simple outline guides to achieving the looks, but our very favourite part are the stories from the real women she makes up – because beauty’s about so much more than moisturiser, blush and concealer.
Pretty Powerful, $39.95. Available from bookstores or online at http://prettypowerful.bobbibrowncosmetics.com/au/book
