Bobbi’s Malibu Nudes! Get a jump on spring weather with Bobbi Brown’s California-inspired Malibu Nudes collection. It arrives on counters this month and is the ideal makeup to get a West Coast look even while there are three feet high snow banks. The limited edition makeup collection features an eye palette, blush duos and six Art Sticks. Kate Upton once again is the face of the ad campaign. She’s photographed on a Malibu beach holding a turquoise and white Bobbi Brown surfboard. (How do we get one of those?)
“Malibu Nudes is simple to apply and blends effortlessly because it works with your skin tone, but mostly it’s instantly pretty,” says Brown.
The star product is Bobbi’s iconic neutral shadows in her original Nude on Nude Eye Palette that contains nude, cement, wheat, espresso and malted shades. The dark brown shade can be used to line and subtly define eyes. These really are Bobbi’s best neutral shadows.
Inspired by cheeks’ healthy flush after a day in the sun, Bobbi’s Blush Duos boast two shades of blush for a natural and long-lasting wash of colour.
To achieve Bobbi’s signature “just pinched” cheek look, dust the softer shade of blush onto cheeks, and then follow with a pop of brighter blush, applied just on the apples of the cheeks. There are four Blush Duos in the collection: pastel pink/powder pink, sand pink/pale pink, tawny/peony, plum/French pink.
“Your perfect shade of blush should match the colour of cheeks when you’re naturally flushed.” – Bobbi Brown
To complement the fresh and relaxed Malibu-Nude look, Bobbi has curated a selection of six Art Sticks, ranging from classic neutrals to bold brights. The moisturizing yet long-wearing formula glides effortlessly onto lips with a creamy-matte finish. Line lips with the point of the pencil to achieve natural-looking definition, then hold the flat edge against lips to fill in colour. “Your perfect nude lip colour matches your natural lip colour, or is one or two shades darker,” advises Bobbi.
Bobbi Brown Cosmetics is available at select Hudson’s Bay stores in Canada including Downtown Toronto at Queen Street and Yonge.
