My One on One Makeup Lesson from Bobbi Brown

It's another makeover! Last October 27, 2011 while Rowena and I were waiting for the next event- we attended two events that day, we walked from Makati Shangri- la Hotel to Bobbi Brown's makeup counter in Rustan's Makati. 
Can I pass for a Bobbi Brown makeover model?

There are two things that I wanted to learn obsessed with in makeup- smokey eye and contouring. 
Thanks to Rowena's makeup pass, I was able to avail of Bobbi Brown's one on one 45-minute lesson on "Special Occasion Beauty".

Initially, Owell did a mini lesson (20-minute) on Smokey Eyes. When he learned that I was going to attend another event right after the makeover, he gamely did my whole face.

Bone Eyeshadow was used all over my eyelids with eyeshadow brush

Bobbi Brown makeover after photo

I personally like the Ash Brow Pencil used on my eyebrows. Since I dyed my hair red, the color of the  eyebrow pencil that I am using does not match my hair color anymore. I think Bobbi Brown's Ash Brow Pencil did a very good job!
