Bloggers Share: How I Embrace My Natural Beauty
True style starts with embracing what’s naturally beautiful about you (which is why the Queen of Nude Makeup, Bobbi Brown, created her skin-perfecting Skin Foundation Stick over twenty years ago!). Here, top bloggers like EyeSwoon.com’s Athena Calderone are sharing how they embrace their unique makeup and fashion sensibility.
Basics and Bolds
Honing in on your fave fashion staples is an easy way to always dazzle. “I love juxtaposing styles,” says Calderone. “I create clean skin with the Bobbi Brown Skin Foundation Stick and then add a bright colorful lip. The same steps can be applied to the frittata I just made: I took the simplicity of eggs, and amped it up with bold veggies.”
Flawless skin is the perfect accessory with everything from a cropped denim jacket to a laser cut skirt! For the first time since it’s debut in 1992, Bobbi Brown has updated the Foundation Stick with a groundbreaking new formula, Skin Foundation Stick. Now, the Stick moisturizes or mattifies, depending on what the skin needs; has twenty four new shades; and reduces the look of fine lines.
Bobbi Brown's Skin Foundation Stick isn’t just the last word in great skin – it’s also luxe. The adorably portable packaging is so lightweight that it fits perfectly in your tiniest clutch. For Calderone, as a teen, it was the ultimate in swank. “It was a rite of passage in a way, dipping my toes into the fantastical world of beauty,” she says.

The Comfort Zone
Women of true taste and style always look comfortable in their own skin. “I’m all about comfort and time-saving solutions,” Lim says. “I love that, if I’m cutting low on time, I can grab Bobbi Brown Skin Foundation Stick and throw it in my purse, and touch-up in the office.”
The life of a fashion blogger is both glamorous and fast-paced. Paring things down with a simple look – like natural, glowing skin – is always a beautiful choice. Bobbi Brown Skin Foundation Stick looks great on all skin tones and can be worn all over the face or just where it’s needed. What’s not to love?
Skirting the Issue
Part of looking beautiful (and feeling beautiful) is celebrating what you gravitate towards, naturally. For Lim, it’s skirts! “The thing about a skirt or a dress is that I never feel constrained or uncomfortable,” she says, “and it’s something easy that I can throw on in a rush.
True beauty is embracing what makes you feel your most gorgeous. In BeautyBets.com creator Elizabeth Dehn’s case, it’s clean skin. “I know what works for me, and it’s me – only better,” she says. “I love that Bobbi Brown's Skin Foundation Stick is long-wearing yet moisturizing, so my skin stays dewy all day. Plus, Bobbi has updated the formula with skin-tone correcting pigments for a natural finish.”
Scrambling to stay on top of every new trend can be exhausting! So…don’t. Beautiful skin never goes out of style — prep your complexion with Bobbi Brown Skin Foundation Stick! “Just when I think I have my look down, something changes—my mood, my job, or a new trend,” says Dehn. “But the older I get, the less I think of style in terms of fashion or trends, and more in terms of self expression.”
Honing in on your favorite staples is key in developing your personal style.“For me, an equation has emerged: classic staple plus modern accessory,” says Dehn, who keeps her skin looking clean and flawless with Bobbi Brown Skin Foundation Stick. “I’m also inspired by others’ style. I never would’ve donned these floral pants if I hadn’t seen them on my creative director! I love that we wear them differently—her with an animal print coat, me with a gray sweatshirt.”
Your most dazzling signature look should embody your interests, taste, and personal beauty standard. “When I look back at my many phases,” says Dehn, “the ones that made me feel so cool—doc martens, pinned Girbaud jeans, frosted lipstick—all I can think is: I hope I never lose my nerve!”
