The Makeup Look: #BobbiBrown Tortoise Shell Inspired (With Tutorial Video)

9/01/2011Shen Gee



Bobbi Brown says that your beauty shouldn't be hindered by wearing your glasses. She herself wears glasses and with that she created a fall collection that consisted of a lot of warm browns, taupes and bronze that compliments your frames. I am especially in love with the lipstick. Here she emphasize on how to modernize a classic look. Make yours eyes the windows to your soul, enhance your peepers with or without glasses.

And since I wanted the collection but don't currently have the moolah to get it, I did a look inspired from Bobbi Brown's Tortoise Collection using some of the products I already have. Some are from Bobbi Brown like the Skin Foundation, Guava Lipstick and Everything Mascara. While I used Urban Decay Naked Palette to recreate a sort of smokey gold look. Love the results and the bronzey effect of this look. Definitely something I'd be re-doing for many days (and enhancing for those night outs).

Hope I did Bobbi proud!
