Radiant, healthy glowing skin is never out of season. That’s the biggest realization of both cosmetics companies and makeup users alike in the past few decades. Very seldom will you see people wearing heavy makeups or looking like clowns these days, unless the occasion called for a little bit more dressing up than usual, that is. But, on a day by day basis, the natural no makeup look is never out of style.

About Bobbi Brown

Bobbi Brown is the namesake of the late 1980s’ go-to makeup artist of celebrities who wanted more than just a pop of color from their makeup. Bobbi, as early as then, has recognized that makeup should be worn as if it’s not there at all, making her ahead of the 80s punk era where the trends dictated shocking lips, multi-colored eyelids, and pale complexions.

Bobbi, being unimpressed with how makeup was being worn, sought out counters over counters of cosmetics but found none that suit her craving for makeup that’s barely there. So, she set out to launch her own line of cosmetics, beginning with the successful introduction of 10 Bobbi Brown lipstick shades in 1991. Barely four years later, the Estée Lauder Group of Companies began to notice that the Bobbi Brown Cosmetics line was attracting a huge cult following, that made the company offer to buy out the brand, while retaining Bobbi Brown to continue on serving as the brand’s creative director.

Every woman can be beautiful – This is the philosophy and inspiration behind Bobbi Brown Cosmetics, and the core theme of the brands’ Pretty Powerful Campaign. Through product sales, the brand funds non-profit-led social development programs around the world that seek to promote education among women and girls to help uplift their lives.

How is Bobbi Brown Highlighting Powder in Bronze Glow Used?

Apply Bobbi Brown Highlighting Powder in Bronze Glow over your base or foundation using a blender or blush brush. Run through lightly on the highlighter compact using your large brush. Turn the brush upside down and give it a slight tap or two before rolling over gently and smoothly on your cheeks and other facial contours you want highlighted. Remember, do not rub and do not bounce your brush for an even application.

Bobbi Brown Highlighting Powder in Bronze Glow also works a beautiful glow when applied over a lightly tinted blush.
