This masterclass is packed full of practical info. I learnt so much, thank you.

I loved the information and demonstration on doing a natural look. At 50 I tend to overthink what makeup should be and Bobbi made it so simple. I really appreciated the skin care tips with coconut oil and the business tips at the end.

I really like Bobbi s authenticity In all her teachings and advices

I loved this class! Simple, relatable and practical. I will use these tips everyday! Thank you Bobby Brown. You are amazing!!

Great lesson. Although... I would love to see a model that isn't so perfect to begin with. I know she is showing technique, but how to hide acne, large pores, wrinkles, etc., would be very interesting.

I really enjoyed this lesson. I realized that my current foundation does all of the things she says a foundation shouldn't do, which explains why I am so unhappy with it! I got new foundation this weekend (from the Bobbi Brown makeup counter) and it is awesome! It was nice to have someone help me find a foundation that is perfect for my shade of skin and my type of skin. So far, I'm in love. I can't wait to go through the rest of my makeup and ditch the things that don't work for me!

For somebody who has never really worn make-up other than occasional mascara or lipstick, this was really helpful. I was able to go to a drug store and buy products that have made me feel really good about myself! I found this extremely helpful. I also like that she discussed dry skin, which I have. I ended up buying a liquid foundation and I cut it in half with my daily moisturizer. It's super light coverage but makes my skin a bit more even. My only disappointment was not finding a "complexion stick." I guess I need to go to a department store to find one. This whole series has been great for me!

Freckles is me! This was really helpful. Got some of her makeup, and it works wonders. I realized though, that my face was not a different color, I just had a tanned torso. Suggestion: before you believe you have a lighter skin tone head than torso, look for tan line.

I can clearly see that Molly’s eyes are stretched out in the after picture to appear bigger... I mean why retouch it digitally? I want to see the honest result

powder under the eyes? On that sensitive skin where the wrinkles develop? :O I do not like the concealer under the eyes, the model doesn't need it and makes the make-up heavy (opposite of what Bobbie says she wants). She looks nice on the after image, indeed a natural look. In my opinion, too many products were used for such a small change. She could easily go without make-up. A model with deeper defects of the skin would have been a better example to see.

Might be just me but looking at Molly, I could clearly see the line between her concealer and her foundation. In addition, it wasn't fully blended on her left eye at the end. idk but I can't see myself wanting that. Of course, I've been thinking the same thing about Bobbi's blush. It's such a bright color and there seems to be so much. It doesn't really look natural which is all she's been talking about.

Guys where can i buy those pencil foundations and concealer? it looks too satisfying to put. Also, ready to go.

Need more info on sunscreen. I apply sunscreen all over my face including my eyelids for protection everywhere. She mentions not putting foundation on eyelids so the oil will not ruin eyeshadows. What about suncreen? Do you use a primer then?


This seems to be more of an overview of foundation basics for people who are new or less experienced with using makeup. Since this is a masterclass, I was expecting more than just the basic techniques that many who are already comfortable with makeup are already aware of. For example, moisturizing beforehand and using a lighter shade under the eye than the rest of the face are no-brainers. I would have loved to learn more about things that require a little more skill or expertise, like applying foundation to skin that has hyper-pigmentation, wrinkles, or more severe acne scars. I also wish she had been more specific when describing choosing the right color for your undertones. She emphasized the importance of this many times, yet didn't explicitly describe or demonstrate exactly how to do this. Overall the lesson has valuable information, but I hope the class will go a little deeper as the lessons progress.
