Listening to Bobbi Brown and watching her techniques was very informative and eduacational. I learned something new with every new lesson.

Loved the class. Loved the looks, the tips, the simplicity of it all. Loved, specially, the good person and extremely competent and focused professional-woman-entrepenour-mother-human being. Congratulations! You have a big fan in Brasil!

if the lesson would only load i could say more! i have 90 Mbit/sec and interminable timeouts on more or less every video i click on. both on the web and the app. totally frustrated after paying serious subscription fee for this. apart from the friendly support bot, which asked basic configuration questions, still no reply to my multiple support requests. masterclass are you there?

Would like to see more with a Caucasian model- thin lips etc can this beadded


Not sure how to apply this information for my skin tone. Don't find black lips flattering.


Really amazing. The lip color is fantastic for the model, the application is perfect without the need to profile. And what an eye for everything when completing the look

Lots of great info! Bobbi has a unique style, and I'm finding her thoughts are stretching my thinking about makeup which is valuable. I started exploring using more natural colors a month or two before I started watching this, so it's given me a lot of food for thought.


Okay, so this model has beautiful full lips. My lips have lost a lot of college and are thin and turn downward at the corners. If I applied my lipstick according to these instructions... staying inside the lip line, and going all the way to each corner, I would look atrocious! Especially using a lip color that is bright or dark. I really wish she would teach techniques for various shapes and features.

I wished it was more in depth in regards to eye-shape and what best suites them, as well a better discussion when addressing mature clients and how to work with fine lines.


Great to hear from the expert and be reminded of makeup for real women and not instagram looks.

As a woman of color, I appreciate the fact that her foundation is well matched. The model has the most beautiful features!
