Whether you want to learn how to erase your dark circles, get a glow, or
create a cat eye, we have the tools and tips you need to get your best look.
When you’re looking for makeup that lasts the day, search for products with long-lasting formulas. For example, our Skin Long-Wear Weightless Foundation SPF 15 offers 16-hour medium-to-full crease-free coverage so you can go about your entire day with confidence. Or our Intensive Serum Foundation SPF 40/30 lasts up to 12 hours. Review our product descriptions, as we make a lot of long-wear makeup formulas, and you can chat with an artist virtually to learn more.
When people think smooth, they often think matte. But smooth-looking makeup doesn’t have to be matte. Glowing finishes can also look smooth, so choose the level of luminosity to match your personal preference and skin type. A combination of makeup and skincare can help give features a smooth appearance. Hydrated skin can also help give you a healthy-looking glow. Make sure to cleanse, moisturize, and prime before you apply makeup to help it go on smoothly. In particular, make sure to hydrate your skin appropriately for your skin type.
Makeup ingredients vary by product. At Bobbi Brown, we strive for excellence and quality across all our products. We make an effort to put skin-loving ingredients in our products, including in our Soothing Cleansing Oil, Extra Repair Eye Cream Intense, and Vitamin Enriched Face Base. Among the beneficial ingredients we use in our skincare and makeup are Shea Butter for conditioning, Sea Buckthorn for calming, Argan Oil for nourishment, Glycerin for hydrating, and Cordyceps Complex for energizing.
Starting with clean hands, apply makeup remover like our Soothing Cleansing Oil in a gentle, circular motion across your face with a cotton pad. Then, rinse your face clean and pat your face dry. A good makeup remover will not only remove makeup and impurities but will also retain your skin’s moisture.
Cakey makeup may be caused by a number of factors, including oily skin, dry skin, too much powder, or heavy-handed application. If you notice cakey makeup, there are steps you can take to help correct it. Moisturizing and prepping your skin thoroughly before applying makeup help face makeup apply smoothly and look flawless. If you’re still unsure why your makeup is cakey, connect with one of our artists for help.
An airbrushed, perfect makeup look is achievable with the right products and techniques, including proper skin prep, superior products with suitable finishes, and the necessary tools. First, prep your skin for makeup by applying moisturizer and then primer. Next, apply foundation all over the face for an even skin tone. Follow with corrector to help neutralize undereye discoloration and then concealer to brighten and cover dark circles. Make sure to blend all formulas after applying, either with your fingers or a brush, like our Concealer Blending Brush, to ensure it looks seamless. Next, use a powder, like our Sheer Finish Pressed Powder, to help set your makeup. Use bronzer on your cheekbones and forehead to add subtle contouring to the face, and then apply blush to the apples of your cheeks for a flush of color.
All makeup eventually fades, but certain products, like our Sheer Finish Pressed Powder, help set face makeup and control shine. Using quality products with long-lasting makeup formulas helps to ensure your makeup stays in place throughout the day.
To find your Corrector shade, look at the tone of discoloration under your eyes. If your undereye darkness is bluish-purple, choose a bisque shade. If it is greenish-brown, choose a peach shade.
