Re: Live Chat with Bobbi Brown!

Do your best in school & be nice to your mother. Eat really healthy food & drink a lot of water. Wear colors that are flattering to bring out your best self and don't forget your moisturize. 

Re: Live Chat with Bobbi Brown!

Hi Bobbi! I am 45 and extremely fair. I love shimmer and shine, but have been told that those (especially in eyeshadows) can age you, and only use matte products.  Any advice?

Re: Live Chat with Bobbi Brown!

Our formulas are especially created to work on women of all ages and of all skin textures. They are finely milled and don't fall into your lines. Instead, they actually lift and brighten. Try it out, I'd love to hear what you think.

Re: Live Chat with Bobbi Brown!

Hi! So excited to be able to ask you questions! I have always struggled with my eye makeup -- I am Asian, and I have "hooded eyes", like my eyelids are hidden...so when I do eyeliner, no one can see it, because it is hided under, and I can't follow any makeup tutorials since most of these tutorials are for double eyelids, or at least pure monolid. But I am somehow between double and single eyelid. I can't do these beautiful eyeshadows, and I think my eyes look really tired. they are on different sizes, too, which is annoying. Do you have makeup suggestions for eye shape like mine? 

Re: Live Chat with Bobbi Brown!

Every woman actually has different sized eyes. It's normal and you can use makeup to balance it out. For the smaller eye, go thicker with eyeliner than on the bigger eye.

 

When lining your eyes, make sure the liner is thicker so that when you open your eyes you can see it. You can leave it straight or even smudge it. 

Re: Live Chat with Bobbi Brown!

Also, a second question - my concealer creases and then fades as the day goes on - I look fresh in the morning, and my coworkers are asking me if I feel ill by the afternoon! Any tips for keeping my concealer looking good longer?

Re: Live Chat with Bobbi Brown!

Have you tried setting it with a powder? That usually holds it in place quite longer.

 

Re: Live Chat with Bobbi Brown!

Bobbi, what's your secret to making lip color last all day?

Re: Live Chat with Bobbi Brown!

Just curious:

Have you ever felt the need to go up to a person and offer them makeup tips? Or have you met someone and subtly made suggestions to them about their makeup look / routine?

Re: Live Chat with Bobbi Brown!

Bobbi,

My skin just recently changed and I need a makeup over haul.  Where do I start? I am completely lost! I have been missing you on the Elvis Duran show! I would love to be able to call in and talk to you!

Re: Live Chat with Bobbi Brown!

HI bobby: I love love love !!!! makeup and im trying to find alternatives for products that doesn't contain hormonal disruptors or carcinogens. What would you recommend to keep healthy but still using makeup???

 

Re: Live Chat with Bobbi Brown!

I'm very fair skinned, and by this time of year any color I had from the summer is completely gone.  Most bronzers don't look right on me.  With the snow falling for the 1st time this season in NYC earlier this week, I'm craving a "summery", fresh-faced look.  Any ideas?

Re: Live Chat with Bobbi Brown!

Hi bobbi!
I have a problem with any kind of lipsticks, stains, etc.. every lipstick I put on bleeds, what could I use to set the lipstick? Also I am fair skin and red lipstick looks quite harsh on me, what type of red would you recommend ?

Re: Live Chat with Bobbi Brown!

Hi,

 

I am 49 years old with oily skin.  What is the best foundation or BB cream I can use?

 

Re: Live Chat with Bobbi Brown!

Bobbi! Big Fan!!!!!

I have oily skin and can do nothing about it. I've tried everything. I see all these beauties with great matte or dewy skin and I have to walk around with rice paper all day. Any suggestions? I've tried to counteract it by moisturizing since I was told that my skin produces more oil to moisturize but then I feel like a walking ad for Crisco. I've done the primers as well. Any suggestions?

Re: Live Chat with Bobbi Brown!

Hi Bobbi! About 10 years ago (possibly more) you came out with a holiday lip palate with 5 shades and a pencil.  The colors were Frost, Glow, Merlot, Copper Red and Sparkling Gold.  Why do I know this?  I still have the component (although it is empty) Any chance you will come out with a similar set again?  I loved all the lip colors!

Re: Live Chat with Bobbi Brown!

Hi Bobbi Smiley Happy Did you know that you wanted your career to be in the beauty department since childhood and teenage years? I am a teenager and am seriously considering having a career in beauty. Do you have any advice for me?

Re: Live Chat with Bobbi Brown!

I live in Colorado and am beyond dry!  Can you recommend a good exfoliator or other product to help? 

 

Also, I never seem to get my blush applied correctly.  What's the application secret?

Re: Live Chat with Bobbi Brown!

Hi Bobbi, every time I shop your products at Sephora I would stare at that gorgeous look you did on the beautiful Miss Katie Holmes. Can you share on how you created that look?

Re: Live Chat with Bobbi Brown!

Hi Bobbi! Big fan here. Any advice on a busy day during the holidays to go from a natural look to dramatic evening/party look?

Re: Live Chat with Bobbi Brown!

Hi Bobbi ! I am in the shade honey in BB foundation stick and i am from india. Which bronzer would you recommend for contouring? I am 25 years old

Re: Live Chat with Bobbi Brown!

I wouldn't recommend contouring because I like women the way they are. I like to enhance women's natural beauty. I like to use Bronzing Powder to warm up a complexion & to match the neck to the face. If you have a cinnamon undertone, try my Dark Bronzing Powder. If you have more of a golden undertone, try my Deep Bronzing Powder. 

 

 

Re: Live Chat with Bobbi Brown!

Hi Bobbi,

 

I'm naturally pale all year round. I take care of my skin and have learned to appreciate it despite the media's portrayal of us fair-skinned ladies!

 

Any advice on how to keep protecting fair skin in the winter and how to make sure to not look dull while wearing a simple daytime look?

Re: Live Chat with Bobbi Brown!

What to do about very large pores, I am 54.

Re: Live Chat with Bobbi Brown!

I'd suggest to try my Long-Wear Compact Foundation because it's Oil-Free and gives a smooth finish. That should work.
