SURF & SAND

25 Aug, 2014 Beauty Blog
SURF & SAND

Shimmery sandy beige, aquamarine blue, sea green, shell pink & coppery bronze… I would like to introduce you to the most gorgeous eyeshadow palette I have ever laid eyes on- & its part of Bobbi Browns new Surf & Sand collection.

Being a beach loving surfie chick from way back, I got very excited when I saw that Bobbi was theming a whole makeup range around the glorious shades of the sand & surf. Through my eyes nothing is more inspiring than a beautiful beach on a sunny day & upon opening up Bobbis SURF Eye Palette I could almost smell the sea air!

The Surf & Sand range incorporates two eyeshadow Palettes, as selection of beautifully sheer lipsticks, two different shades of Brightening blush & several gorgeous eye pencils.

My favorite product within this collection is the Surf Eye Palette. Firstly the compact itself is beautifully designed with an easy to open magnetized lid & generous sized mirror (very important in a good palette!) Inside you will find eight eyeshadows shades that can be used individually or together, making it brilliant value. There are incredibly useful tones like Cream (a great base shade) along with Sunny Gold & New Pink, which are ideal to use as a shimmer wash over the whole eye area- just add mascara & you are away!

But its the green & aqua that I will be using this spring & If you have never tried tones like this before, then here is a great place to start. Bobbis version of sea green is soft & shimmery with just enough colour to brighten up the eyes without looking garish. Remember that green cancels out red so it you are looking a little bleary round the eyes, then apply a wash of Sea Foam along your top lid & smudge it softly under the eye. Combine this with lashings of black mascara, bronzed cheeks & glossy lips for a fresh spring makeup.

Another favorite in this range is Bobbis Long wear cream shadow stick in 24 Karat  -a highly metallic, light gold shade. I have been using this pen for awhile as it came out in a limited edition range last year & I latched onto it as a personal favorite (see my blog Easy Eyes). I promise you that nothing is easier to use than this crayon as it literally glides across the eye, creating a soft smudgy line with the minimum of skill. I wear 24 Karat on its own as an instant eye brightener, or you can apply a bronze or gold shadow over the top for a high-shine evening look.

Then there are the Surf & Sand blushers, which come in two shades (Bronze & Pink) & apart from adding radiance to the cheekbones, they can also double as an eye shadow.

The new face of Bobbi Brown is the model gorgeous Kate Upton (see her glowing in the picture above!) I recently watched Kate in her acting debut, with Cameron Diaz in the rom-com The Other woman & I thought she came across as incredibly fresh, natural & funny. I think shes an ideal spokeswoman for Bobbi Brown as she typifies a girl who is comfortable in her own skin.

  1. These palettes sound amazing I will look for them at the Bobbi counter and give them a go.

  2. They are worth every penny- great value at $150, especially when you can pay up to $40 for one single shadow!
