Festival Girl Beauty Issue
Beauty icon Bobbi Brown is entering a new chapter of her career – one that is based on wellness and health. “I’ve always been passionate about wellness,” she says. “From nutritious food to supplements to exercise, I believe that beauty starts from the inside out. Your health shows on your face.” That sentiment is laid out beautifully over 224 pages in her ninth book entitled “Beauty: From the Inside Out”. “Eating the healthiest foods possible, drinking a ton of water, and moving your body every day – it shows.” She remembers a group of young models she made up during Paris Fashion Week one year. “I saw them six months later and they weren’t looking so good. They had been partying every night and smoking. It showed on their faces.”
One of the most interesting chapters in the book is on social media. Bobbi was one of the first artists to spot the power of communicating with clients via social media. Her @justbobbibrown accounts offer an honest and inspiring window into her world. “I have clients who say they feel intimidated by the makeup and looks they see on social media. I tell them that they often aren’t real. Many of the Instagram photos you see are photographed by top photographers, staged by professional stylists and photoshopped to remove any imperfections. They just aren’t real.” Once women understand this, they begin to feel better about their looks. Bobbi often will take selfies without any makeup.
So what can we expect to see from Brown in the coming months? “I’ve just launched a concept shop at Lord & Taylor in the U.S. which is so exciting. I’m working on a hotel concept. And more wellness ideas.” She says one of the most exciting things for her is to see something that isn’t working and figure out new ways to do it. “We live in such exciting times now.
I have so many ideas.”
This summer issue has some fascinating interviews, interesting launches and pro tips. I hope you enjoy it.
