What I think I love most about Bobbi Brown make up is how pretty and easy it is. You’ll never see a Bobbi girl looking too made-up, too forced, or like she took hours to do her makeup. Instead, the brand is all about easy prettiness – like you on a really good day. And in the summer, what more could you want?
I’d never tried Bobbi Brown’s Sheer Color Cheek Tint before, so when a stick of it popped through the letterbox, I got rather excited! Available in a range of three shades which encompass a bright candy floss (the aptly named Bright Pink), a deep berry (Sheer Lilac), and mine, a warm toned bronze (Telluride).
If you’ve been lucky enough to spend a few weeks sunning yourself in more exotic climes than Edinburgh, you’ve pretty much got to treat yourself to a stick of Telluride. It’s the perfect warm bronze which will highlight your tan, and make the beach feel like it’s only a step or two away. Whilst, for those less fortunate, Telluride adds the perfect amount of subtle sheen and colour to let you convincingly fake that vacation glow.
Using the Sheer Color Stick couldn’t be easier. After applying a lightweight base (my current favourite is Chanel’s Vitalumiere Aqua with a couple of drops of oil in it) I swipe a couple of dots of the blush over the apples of my cheeks towards my temples, then, using a dampened Beauty Blender I blend it in, making sure that it buffs seamlessly into my skin. I absolutely love how easy it is to control the colour – if I want a sheer wash of colour I just need a quick swipe, but a more intense look is easily achieved with a firmer sweep and less buffing. On the skin, it looks so natural, and leaves a subtle glow behind which is seriously stunning. It’s also a great little multi-tool to pop into your handbag when you’re out and about. I love a little of the formula dabbed onto lips and eyelids for a little subtle definition.
Bobbi Brown’s Sheer Color Stick is priced at £19.50 and is available here.
