Bobbi Brown has been known to be an advocate of foundation that looks real skin. She developed the first ever skin-tone correct foundation as she believes that all women, regardless of ethnicity, naturally have yellow undertones in their skin. All of Bobbi’s foundations work with skin’s natural undertones so the result is luminous, healthier looking skin and imperceptible foundation.
Today, Bobbi offers a wide range of skin-tone correct foundations to suit various skin concerns. My ultimate favorite and also their best-seller is the Bobbi Brown Skin Foundation SPF 15 (PHP 2,900). This is perfect if you want skin that looks like skin- only better. It can even out skin tone and blur out pores. It can control oil, at the same time, leaving skin dewy.
If you have really oily skin and want heavier coverage, they have the Long-Wear Even Finish Foundation SPF 15 (PHP 2,900). This one is a bit more matte compared to the Skin Foundation. If you want the convenience of a compact but needs the coverage of a liquid foundation, Bobbi developed the Long-Wear Even Finish Compact Foundation (PHP 2,400). This can also be used to retouch your liquid foundation. Another portable formula that smoothes and evens out skin is Bobbi’s innovative Foundation Stick (PHP 2,350), which has adjustable coverage. A new formula that’s my current favorite is the Extra Bright Powder Compact Foundation SPF 25 PA+++. It’s perfect for oily skin and for those who need coverage.
Felix Ngueyn, Bobbi Brown International Makeup Artist, was present during the event to do some makeup demonstrations. He gave tips on how to achieve perfect skin using different Bobbi Brown foundations.
Oh, by the way, Felix applies concealer before applying liquid foundation. This is his technique to achieve even skin tone, including the under eye area. He wants to avoid the under eyes appearing whiter than the rest of the face.
Look at all the models after the makeup demo. They all have that natural glowing skin, which is very “Bobbi Brown”. Bobbi’s philosophy is that makeup should be a way for women to look and feel like themselves, only prettier and more confident
