UK singer Estelle is featured in “Pretty Powerful” a book by world-famous makeup artist Bobbi Brown released September 26th. The book is aa new kind of makeup manual that starts with who you are, rather than how you look. In this book, Bobbi interviews dozens of real women, celebrities, and athletes about what beauty means to them and shows, step-by-step, how to achieve each look.
In the video below Estelle shows off her make over and also shares some words that have guided her life including the life advice she;s gotten (you’re the only person on the guest list stop trying to bring all your friends with you) and her personal motto (If you want it go and get it).
Here’s how you can have a “Pretty Powerful” look of your own!
For bold women, it’s all about going with how you feel at the moment. Have a range of foundation types on hand to experiment with—from sheer to dewy to matte to full coverage.
At night, a bright pop of color on the cheeks with clear balm rubbed on top of blush gives an instant glow. Shimmer blush can add a playful touch of sparkle too.
A dramatic smokey eye in unusual colors makes a sexy statement at night. Keep lips and cheeks neutral so that your eyes really stand out.
Creating eye-catching lips means playing with color, anything from acid orange to pale champagne. Just make sure the rest of the face is balanced—if lips are bold, keep eyes a bit softer.
Do the unexpected, which can mean playing it down as much as playing it up. Soft, pretty hair contrasted with striking makeup is very contemporary and cool. Try slicked back and sleek, subtle and soft, or amp up your curls. Have fun!
