7 Smart Makeup Tricks I Learned From Bobbi Brown
As I type this, I'm still in pajamas, but my face is more awake than it has been in weeks. In the words of Maria from West Side Story, "I feel pretty and witty and bright!" But that wasn't always the case.
Quarantine took a toll on me (like it did for everyone), and my stressed reflection showed a tired pallor that looked utterly depleted. The Groundhog Day lethargy is real guys—and my face was proof. I wanted to do something for myself; and for me, seeing a bright reflection did wonders for my optimism. While I consider myself decent at applying makeup, one look inside my makeup drawer revealed a random collection of mostly expired beauty products. I needed a fresh start, and Bobbi Brown's MasterClass was my answer to self-care.
So, I promptly enrolled in Brown Teaches Makeup and Beauty ($180 for all-access pass; masterclass.com). The 3-plus hour course is organized into 19 mini-tutorials that demonstrate her no-makeup makeup philosophy. This class completely changed how I look at and purchase makeup. In learning about different brushes and applications, I also gained a newfound confidence in how I use makeup and, more importantly, how it can change my mood in only a few minutes.
While helpful to watch how she applies her makeup (I've watched the foundation section three times!), I'll tell you how to enhance your look by making just a few quick changes to your routine.
