First Look: Bobbi Brown’s KBeauty look + Face & Bronzing Duo swatches

Aloha! I’m feeling particularly motivated and inspired this long weekend, hence the massive churn out of blog post (that, and I’m feeling guilty on sitting on these for such a long time). A while back, I attended Bobbi Brown’s workshop on how they interpret the Korean Beauty trend, and I must say, they’re pretty on point!

Bobbi Brown Workshop1Bobbi Brown’s Korean makeup artist Nohย Yong Nam with his adorable squinty eyes and typically Korean rounded glasses ๐Ÿ˜€

Bobbi Brown Workshop2After applying the base (foundation), he actually starts with the cheeks. Major mind-blowing revelation right? The rationale is so that he knows how much eye makeup to apply after (by balancing out the amount of colour painted onto the face).

Wanna know the proper way to apply cream blusher? Use a finger (or brush) to swirl the pot and pick up the colour, and apply it from the apples of the cheek outwards. In this way, you get the most colour intensity on the apples (which is where you want the colour to concentrate on). Blend it out slowly with either a brush or your fingertips.

Bobbi Brown Workshop3And voila! You have perfectly rosy, radiant cheeks that exude a healthy glow!

Bobbi Brown Workshop5One of the most popular and best-selling shades of Bobbi Brown’s range – Taupe. The light hazelnut brown gives very subtle definition and depth to the eye sockets. I’m SO tempted to get it now. Be still, my beating heart (and anxious wallet). Bobbi Brown Workshop6 Using an eyeshadow brush to gently apply it onto the eyelids…

Bobbi Brown Workshop7And there – can you see how subtle it is? Another makeup tip dispensed was to use the same cream cheek blusher as your lip colour (well, Bobbi Brown’s is a multi-usage product), so that there’s more consistency in your overall look.

Bobbi Brown Workshop8Next up was the eyeliner – compared with last ย year’s intense eyeliner trend where the Kpop stars piled it on (oops, I’m so totally guilty of doing that still), this year is all about a more natural finish and blending with brown eyeshadows. I saw so many Korean girls on the subway pulling this look off when I was there earlier this year – I love! Bobbi Brown Workshop9Look at how the eyeliner is extended just ever so slightly and joined with the bottom line, and also so carefully and subtly blending with the two shades of eyeshadows (Taupe and Mahogany (which was used as both the brow colour and eyeshadow colour)). I can’t wait to try this look out! Besides the Kbeauty tutorial, this event was also to showcase their new collection – aren’t they gorgeous?!

Bobbi Brown Face Body Bronzing Duo7aNote that my swatches are actually done with several layers so that the colour can be seen – they’re not that intense (in case you’re worried about coming out looking too draggy).

ย What I’m most excited about is actually the eyeshadow palette. I’m a HUGE fan of their eyeshadow palettes. Unfortunately I didn’t manage to swatch them cos I didn’t wanna soil the pristine condition (that, plus I didn’t wanna make the staff delay their knockoff timings even further. I’d taken up enough time with my tomfoolery doing all the swatches heh). Oh well. In the meantime, feast your eyes ๐Ÿ˜€
