makeup artistry


"Feel Great" signed  by Bobbi Brown to me!
Bobbi Brown and Patricia van Essche
signing her book, "Makeup Manual"

Makeup artistry has intrigued me ever since I was old enough or allowed to wear any.  One of my most favorite makeup artists is renowned Bobbi Brown, founder of Bobbi Brown Cosmetics. She is the author of four bestselling books on beauty and her products are sold worldwide.

The invite arrived and I jumped at the opportunity to meet Bobbi and have her "autograph" my book.  The event took place at Lord & Taylor and it was quite an excited group of attendees all waiting to have their book signed or for a makeup consultation with one of her talented artists.
Bobbi sure knows how to put her best face forward to inspire others to do so with the help of her easy steps to looking and feeling good.

Oh, Patricia lucky you! You and Bobbi both look great. Two wonderful artists together.

What fun. I love her cosmetics- I use a few of them regularly and have two of her books. I like how un-made-up they feel. Like having a little "glow" without the heavy stuff- very natural feeling. And she has the best lipstick shades-hands down!
You are glowing along side of her~

Me too ladies, I prefer au natural over the made up look which is one reason why I love her products, the brushes are key! Great brushes do make a difference!

I bet you enjoyed that, I have read a lot about Bobbi Brown and she is someone I really admire she has really built a very strong brand.

Lucky lady. Looks like you had a good time.

I must go check out her new book.

Joyce said...

Yeah- it looked like a fun time! I enjoy going to book signing, standing in line meeting interesting people.
I actually haven't purchased any of cosmetics, but I'm going to look into it now!
I'm glad you got a photo with Bobbi! You look fabulous! Just like Kwana says "Two wonderful artists together" xoxo

Very lucky! I love her make-up philosophy and line. I discovered her make-up about a year before I was married, and I have to say I loved the way my skin and make-up looked that day!

Karena said...

Patricia, I wish I could have been there! I love Bobbby Brown.
Agree with Debra, love the glow her cosmetics radiate.

How cool, and it's amazing because you always look so beautifully natural! Who would know you had such a love for it!

I heart Bobbi Brown--will wear only her lip and eye colors! She "did" my eyebrows once and sternly told me to go to Bliss (when still only in Soho) for some brow shaping. Of course I did . . . Would love another visit with her!

You two look so pretty. How cool that you were able to meet here and get a signed book. What a treat:)

Happy Weekend!

That's awesome! Her makeup is fabulous. I sometimes dream of being a professional stylist what with my makeup case and all (http://www.salonhive.com/silver-aluminum-makeup-train-case-ts-28.html).

Makeup truly is an art!
