Bobbi Brown for Women over 50 at Nordstrom

I was invited to the recent NORDSTROM BEAUTY EVENT and selected one of my favorite lines, BOBBI BROWN, to learn more about new products.  The day I was there the beauty department was packed with the over 50 crowd!

I learned 12 years ago, if I wanted to get the most from my makeup, go to the experts and receive a little education!

Glenda at Bobbi Brown Nordstrom in The Shops of La Cantera is one of the best professors I sat before.  She took such care to explain and discuss each step of the makeup process!

Bobbi Brown’s secret to the makeup universe is prepping, correcting, and concealing.  You will walk away with this diagram explaining exactly what was done and the products utilized to achieve the look.  Very helpful!

I left with a new appreciation of BRONZER ….which I stopped using a couple of years ago.  Glenda informed me Bobbi Brown says bronzer is a must because of the depth it adds to your look.  She showed me exactly where to place it, blend it, and not to forget the neck and chest.  She also taught me when to apply with a brush and when to warm with my fingers to get just the right blend.  Using our fingers is not always a bad thing.  And I was impressed with THE STICK FOUNDATION.

I kind of wish Glenda and my hair stylist lived with me and could do this every day!  How fun would that be…here is a before and after on my brows.  Love this LONG WEAR BROW PENCIL..

I am also sold on the brush in this new EYE OPENING MASCARA.  My current mascara is the SMOKEY EYE, but I will be switching as soon as it runs out.  Loved this product.  I also really like the STONE color of eye shadow Glenda selected for me.

Here is the new BRIGHTENING FINISHING POWDER…for our youthful dew!

Don’t fear the beauty departments!  They are fun and help so much.
The NORDSTROM event was like a party and every customer walked away with a goodie bag after purchase.  
Best part… I am a bronzer girl again!

Have you been to a beauty counter to get help?  Please share your experience!

Have a wonderful Wednesday!

Thanks to Glenda and all the fun staff of NORDSTROM AT THE SHOPS OF LA CANTERA.

  1. That looks like a lot of fun! I would loved to have gone to that event. I watched your broadcast last night, you ladies did an excellent job. If you ever need a 4th musketeer, to make your broadcast more symmetrical, you know where to find me. Hahaha

    1. Thank you for the comments, Tania! I love these events and always learn new techniques. Thank you for the encouragement with Blab! I hope it is helping ladies over 50!

    1. I was surprised by the stick foundation. I did not expect it to be as light as it is…I will probably use it again in the future when current products run out. Thanks Patti!

  2. Hi Pam,
    I love Bobbi Brown in my area and have learned so much over the years. They did the brow pencil on my eyebrows too and told me that is one of the most important things you can do for being a women over 50. My brows looks so much better and more defined. Now I notice it on my friends who don't use it and it would really help them out. Would love to know more about the bronzer so maybe it is time for a visit. Have a great day! Annette

    1. Yes, brows are very important. I have been using a brow treatment but I liked this one better. I saw an immediate difference with bronzer and began to use it the next day. Go treat yourself with some time at the department store…it is worth it!

  3. I've always liked the way Bobbi Brown would apply makeup on women on tv. It always looked natural and not over done. By the way, I like the reps name 🙂

  4. I visited the Bobbi Brown counter at Holt Renfrew here in Ottawa for years. I found the ladies there were so helpful and always taught me something new. I love Bobbi Brown products… even though I have switched some of my loyalty to Laura Mercier these days. It's as much about the girl on the counter as it is about the line to me… and at Nordstrom I really trust Katie on the Laura Mercier line. She's still happy to sell me Bobbi Brown products as well, though:)

  5. You always inspire me to pay more attention to all these little details in life . . . too many years of running, running, running with kids in various stages of activities, so I've just taken the quick and easy way 'round this stuff. Thanks for the encouragement! Nina @ Vintage Mama's Cottage

  6. How does anyone wear a brow pencil without getting that crazed "Whatever Happened to Baby Jane?" look? I just can't do it, so it's a good thing my fading brows are covered by glasses. That's one benefit of myopia and presbyopia!
