While other brands are known for cult shades or specific looks, Bobbi Brown Cosmetics is all about making you look like you… If “you” had properly hydrated skin, eight hours of sleep, and a balanced diet filled with fruits and vegetables. It’s basically you at your very best, bright-eyed and glowing.
Regardless if you spend 5 or 50 minutes doing your makeup, the goal for many women is almost always to look the best version of themselves. Enter Bobbi Brown, who was the first to introduce skin-tone colored foundation that was almost imperceptible to the eye. For Bobbi, the key was starting with a yellow base, a tone found in everyone’s skin. Her goal was to give you perfect-looking skin instead of perfect-looking makeup.
They say it women go through an average of 17 bottles of foundation before they find the best one. Save yourself the hassle and see which Bobbi Brown foundation works best for you:
