It was a pleasure to watch Bobbi Brown do her magic. She is so down to earth and relatable. I got some great insider tips about using cosmetics.

This was my first class and I really enjoyed it. Love her style and story !

Incredible wisdom from one of the best make up artist. I am a make up artist also and it was fascinating listening and watching Bobbi Brown. Excellent excellent excellent thank you.

I've learned that I'm already really good at this! It was affirming. Also good to hear a few little tips and tricks.



Aloha Bobbie, I watched this series knowing nothing about makeup and I appreciate the introduction. It would be great if you could do an additional module on tips for transgender women. Often we have 5 o'clock shadows or rashy skin in between electrolysis appointments. Some tips/tricks for this specific market would be greatly appreciated!

I loved this series and have followed Bobbi Brown for years, she continues to inspire all of us to be the best version of ourselves. My only comment is that I would love to know what make up brands she uses for the different looks. I think she may be hesitant or prohibited from giving brand recommendations but I would love to know! I bought this Master Class for my daughter and myself and I look forward to watching many more masters of their craft.

thank you very much! Bobbi it was very helpful, interesting i am 61 years old and wanted to learn and this is the perfect way i hope for you the best regards Monica M


Absolutely enjoyed this class! The content is well structured; the speed is moderate that it makes me feel like a very interactive conversation between Bobbi and the audience; the business philosophy sharing at the ending is also very helpful. I am a big fan of natural looking makeup. Bobbi's makeup philosophy really speaks to me. Learned a lot! The only one thing that I do not practice is to put the sunblock before the moisturiser. Is this the better way to do it? supported by any research? I believe most people do the skincare and let all the products sink in and then put the sunblock as the shield on top before the makeup. I have been doing this many years, and I'd be surprised if this is not recommend! Lol. All in all, loved this class. I'd recommend it to those who just started their makeup journey, or to those who do not do makeup because they think it's complicated. It's actually not if you know the basics. Simplicity is key!


An excellent master class, it looks in the same breath .... Bobbi Brown showed by the example of a creative approach to this work one can step by step push the boundaries of what is possible both in creativity itself and in creating a successful business around its creativity, constantly involving new participants and professionals in it business and making this technology available to a wide range of consumers. Great script, great presentation, filming, storytelling ... everything is just great!)

Honestly I am very disappointed in this series. I LOVE Bobbi Brown and agree with her philosophy. The problem is I am a regular person, not a makeup artist, who was interested in learning from her. These sessions were geared to inspiring makeup artists, not regular people who want to learn Bobbi’s application for their personal use. Very disappointed and regret purchasing this for my Christmas gift to myself.

I am looking forward to trying new things. I'm still comfortable with looking as natural as possible.
