5 Make Up Hacks I Learnt from a Bobbi Brown PRO MUA

5 Make Up Hacks I Learnt from a Bobbi Brown PRO MUA

Last week I had the pleasure of being invited along to a Pro Masterclass at Bobbi Brown’s first Pro Studio in London’s Soho. The evening was led by Pro make up artist Aimee Morrison who demonstrated to a roomful of eager bloggers sipping on adorable mini Moëts how to create the ultimate day-to-night Autumn Winter look.

With crystal clear seas to rival the Caribbean, terracotta orange rooftops, grand villas of  La Belle Époque, millionaire yachts, a balmy climate and an abundance of fine cheese and wine, it really is the ultimate driving holiday. The best way to see the French Riviera is by car, not least for the beauty of the ability to make unexpected stop offs and discover villages off of the beaten track en route, and Hertz were kind (or mad?) enough to let me loose on the roads in a large Toyota. 14,000km, 9 cities, an aqueduct, a vineyard, 2.5 tanks of diesel and a flock of flamingos later and I’m here to tell the tale…
