Who is Bobbi Brown? What’s the big deal?
If you’ve read up on anything makeup-related on the Internet, or ever seen an English makeover reality show on TV, you must have seen this face. It’s Bobbi Brown – one of the most famous makeup gurus in the world! And she’s opened up one of her retail stores right here in India – at Select City Walk mall in Delhi!
I’m sure you’ve heard the news recently, but for those of you don’t know, here’s what you can expect at the Bobbi Brown store:
- Bobbi Brown Cosmetics offers a full range of color cosmetics, brushes, and skincare. Must look out for Bobbi’s signature concealers, foundations and powders that come in yellow-based, skin tone correct shades that look natural on a wide variety of skin tones.

MAC, you better watch out!
I know many of you are MAC fans, but this menu of FREE services is going to give tough competition to the MAC store, where you generally have to buy products to get a detailed tutorial on how to use makeup.
For the Brides
I wish this had opened up last year, when I was a clueless bride-to-be who had no idea what makeup products to buy, and how to use them correctly. This is an absolute boon to all brides getting hitched this year (and live in Delhi, of course!) – head over to the Bobbi Brown store and get a makeup lesson or two from their trained Makeup Artists. You’ll know what to put in your bridal vanity kit, and even learn how to apply makeup!
Bride or no bride, I am definitely going to check out the famous Bobbi Brown store. Can’t wait to get a makeup lesson at Bobbi brown!
