Bobbi Brown Blogger Event Leeds

Last Wednesday I went along to House of Fraser for a Bobbi Brown makeup demonstration, along with a few other Leeds beauty bloggers. I love watching make-up artists work and seeing the products, techniques and tools they use to create different looks, so this type of event really excites me!

Rina, who had invited us to the demonstration, showed us a look that had been used during PPQ's runway show at London Fashion Week this year. The look was very 60s-inspired, with defined brows, thick black liner all around the eye and a neutral lip.

Rina primed the eyelids using Long-Wear Eye Base before sweeping White Eyeshadow all over from lash to brow, creating that classic 60s base. She then used the Ultra Fine Eyeliner Brush to apply the Long-Wear Gel Eyeliner in Black Ink in a thick line along the top lash line, focusing on both eyes at the same time as opposed to finishing one eye first then the other. This makes it easier to ensure the liner is even on both eyes. Rina then ran the Smokey Eye Kajal Liner in Noir along the water line and finished the eye off with a couple of coats of Smokey Eye Mascara

Rina defined the brows with Mahogany Eyeshadow and the Eye Definer BrushAfter seeing Rina use this brush, I've added it to my wishlist. I need a new brush for doing my brows and this angled brush is perfect for the job! Pot Rouge in Uber Beige finished the look off giving a little bit of a colour on the cheekbones. The lips were kept pale and neutral with the Rich Lip Colour in Uber Beige

I'm not sure whether this 60s-inspired makeup would suit me but I will certainly give it a go! It was great to discover that Bobbi Brown is an educational brand and you can book sessions to learn how to create various looks and use the makeup and brushes, which is something that I'd definitely be interested in doing.

What do you think of this 60s-inspired makeup look? Have you been to any makeup lessons with Bobbi Brown?
