NUDE MAKEUP-PKG


Music

BEHIND EVERY FLAWLESS FACE - IS YOUR PERFECT NUDE.ACHIEVING THE BARELY

THERE CAN BE A THING OF BEAUTY - ONCE YOU LEARN THE BASICS.

Bobbi Brown / CCO, Bobbi Brown Cosmetics - "Women buy beige lipstick and

think it's nude. Women don't wear blush they think it's nude, women wear a

light foundation, that's not nude. Nude is actually the color you have in

your skin."

BOBBI BROWN - EDITOR IN CHIEF OF YAHOO BEAUTY - CREATED THE FIRST NUDE

ESSENTIALS BACK IN THE EARLY 90S - SO IT'S ONLY NATURAL I WENT TO HER FOR

THE FRESH FACE 4-1-1.

01:33:06 Sara Haines - "How do you find the right tone because so many of us

test it on our hands but my hand isn't necessarily."

01:33:16 Bobbi Brown / CCO, Bobbi Brown Cosmetics - "It doesn't matter what

color your hand is/the only way to know if you have the right foundation

color is that is disappears when you try it on the side of your face /01:33

:30 if it doesn't disappear you'll probably say oh should I put it on my

neck? That means it's the wrong color."

Music Change

AND WHEN IT COMES TO A PERFECT BLUSH - BOBBI'S TIP?

01:32:40 Bobbi Brown / CCO, Bobbi Brown Cosmetics - "Pinch one of your

cheeks, find a blush that matches the other cheek. You want the perfect

color nude lipstick? Bite your lips in the store/ and find a color lipstick

that is that color. That is your perfect nude."

/

01:47:53 Sara Haines - "So the brand isn't as important as the color match?"

01:47:56 Bobbi Brown / CCO, Bobbi Brown Cosmetics - "You want to make sure

it's colors that are right for your skin. /

01:48:02 Sara Haines - "Although that pink kind of rocks."

Bobbi Brown / CCO, Bobbi Brown Cosmetics -You know your color that's good.

Sara Haines- "That's my color?"

Bobbi Brown / CCO, Bobbi Brown Cosmetics - "That is your color."

Sara Haines - 'Winner winner, chicken dinner."

Highs this afternoon running a few degrees above the normal, topping out in the mid 90s area wide. Even with drier air in place, there's still enough humidity to get the Heat Index to 100°+.

There is some good news, that same dry air will keep us mostly dry through the afternoon. However, a little rain might not be bad thing for a quick cool off. Look for shower activity to return by the middle of the week.
