How To: Instant Pretty with Bobbi Brown

Following on from Nikki’s review of Bobbi Brown’s new makeup collection Tulleride, I thought you might like Bobbi’s tips on how to be pretty instantly.

I love her take, she’s about every woman being gorgeous (and that includes you Michelle, Mary and Jane). Sure she’s working on beautiful Kate Upton, but her message is always simple.

Enhance your own features 🙂

Here we go:

Bobbi Brown & Kate Upton

Bobbi’s talking at the end about her Gel Eyeliner which is ah-maz-ing and that Smoky Eye mascara is the bomb too.

And heads up! She’s got a Limited Edition Long-Wear Gel Eyeliner just out. It’s a 12-hour, waterproof formula that can go from subtle to bold (just right for those of us who don’t want to be overpowered) in Patina Ink, Dark Chocolate Ink and Hunter Ink.



There’s also a new Ultra Precise Eye Liner Brush, which is a finer version of the iconic Ultra Fine Eye Liner Brush. It makes using the gel pretty much goof proof.

She developed them, along with a Limited Edition Eye Shadow in Eclipse, Chocolate Caviar and Ivy for a technique called Double Lining.

And good news, it’s not difficult! This is a bit more of a dramatic look.

You begin by lining the top lash line with brush and the Gel Eyeliner and before it sets, blend in the powder shadow.

The layering makes the eyes pop for those extra special occasions. Drama…if it’s too dramatic for you, and I know some of you don’t wear a lot of makeup don’t forget to tell your daughter all about it. She’ll be impressed! 🙂

Pro Tip: Line the eyes one at a time and make sure the gel liner is still slightly ‘wet’ so that it blends with the shadow.

“Double Lining: a makeup artist inspired technique that really makes the eyes stand out.” Bobbi Brown
