How Amazing is your Mom?

I think my Mother is absolutely amazing. She is probably the least selfish person I know. Always kind. Giving. Thoughtful. And always there to lend support to those that want it. I am truly inspired by her, and still to this day, wish I could keep up with her! She is so full of life, energy, and love. She is simply amazing - one of a kind.

An Q & A with Makeup Artist Bobbi Brown. scored a great interview with the most wonderful Bobbi Brown. She is one of my favorite makeup artists, as she designs makeup for real women. And her skin care items are fabulous! Her face balm is the best for overly dry skin.

In the spirit of this great interview, I thought I would share a few of my favorite Bobbi Brown items.


I use two shades of her eye-shadow almost daily. I use Bone as a base color and Smoke as my eyeliner, with one of her slanted eyeliner brushes that came in one of her shadow palettes. I use her Shimmer Tube Tints a lot too. I just l-o-v-e the minty flavor, and like the Glow Sugar Shimmer Tint over many of my lipsticks. and her Shimmer Bricks are awesome, if you have never tried them, don't hesitate. My favorite is Brownie, and it one of my favorite bronzing palettes, ever. In the summer, I swear by her Extra Tinted Moisturizing Balm, with SPF 25. It is just enough coverage, all the moisture I need, and it last all day. Not to mention that medium tint blends perfectly with my (self) tanned face.

Be sure to take a few minutes to check out the interview with Bobbi over at Glam.
