Love Bobbi Brown. I have been a fan since she began her line. I had my first Bobbi Brown makeover at Holt Renfrew in Edmonton. Thank you!

Is it me or her make up is too strident - too orange on the face and that blush... sorry but to be an expert I don't really see the expertise...

I am looking forward to hearing Bobbi's perspective on this fascinating subject. I am very open to new ideas and maybe I will progress beyond my makeup routine that is only red lipstick.

I am a 70 year widow of the sudden death of my husband of 45 years. I have been diagnosed with complicated grief and PTSD. For the first two years I lost interest in most everything most especially my appearance. Grief has taken a tole. There are days when I care more than others and I hope this class can help me progress on those better days


I loved it, I would love to see a class about the "Psychology" of Make up. I am a Psychologist (of 30 years) dealing with high profile clients and the conversations about plastic surgery, appearance, aging, self worth are constant. Bobbi's view is so perfectly consistent with tools I use for healing. Permission, personal value, embracing the YOU that you are... I am touched by her spirit and am truly hoping to see this powerful affect of makeup addressed! She is an expert in the psychology aspect, and I am not even sure she is aware of it yet!

I was a student in the 60's, young working in the 70's - then missed the 80's and 90's completely; it was interesting to see and remember how it was, and it was also interesting to see what I missed (some of it made me feel lucky to have missed it!!) I'm looking forward to discovering more as the lessons progress..
