This fall, Bobbi Brown introduces the Greige collection, a curated range of Bobbi's favourite neutral shades that deliver a classic, chic look. The perfect blend of grey and beige hues, the collection has a complementary colour palette of the perfect naturals, along with a few intense, more dramatic shades. I had the astounding opportunity to get a personal makeup lesson and have my makeup done for the second time this year, by the exemplary makeup artist Eliano Bou Assi! We attempted to create a fun, festive look within 15 minutes, one that you can don for any occasion in the next few months. Not only was I introduced to the entire Greige collection but Eliano also unveiled the new Intensive Skin Serum Foundation, Corrector & Concealer which have globally become all the rage and are now all set to launch next month, in India.

We started with clean, moisturizer skin and then sticking to one of Bobbi's commandments, reached for concealer, first. Technically, we reached for the ISS Corrector in the shade Bisque first and then followed it up with the ISS Concealer in Natural. The texture of these products felt so good on the skin, blending perfectly and I literally haven't stopped using these products since that moment day. He then used the new ISS Foundation which is a perfect everyday foundation as its light weight, the ingredients used to create it aide in improving the quality of your skin and it has an SPF 40! The coverage is light, however you could build it up a little with a thin second layer. The next step was, Strobing of course! Strobing is nothing but extreme highlighting of the skin to focus on the high points of your face and it also gives you the freedom to go light handed on your bronzer, creating a more natural contour. For this, he used the shimmer brick in Rose above my non existent cheek bones, on the bridge of my nose, on my cupids bow & under as well as above my eyebrows. He then added a soft pink blush to the apples and painted my lips with a gorgeous berry shade.

Then, moving on to the eyes, he started with the Long-Wear Cream Shadow Stick in the colour Greige. These shadow sticks, glide on smoothly and can be used to shade, define, smoke and highlight the eyes. A unique blend of oils, waxes and film-formers gives it a water-resistant formula and superior 8-hour wear. He then began to dip his brushes into my favourite product from the collection, The Greige Eye Palette, creating a subtle smokey eye. This palette is definitely the centerpiece of this collection, featuring a mix of 8 matte and metallic shades all housed in a sleek navy compact. The shadows are well-pigmented and extremely easy to blend. A simple black gel liner, a little colour to fill in the eyebrows and a few strokes of mascara completed this eye look. He then added a touch of Golden Light bronzer to add some definition to my face, a spritz of the setting spray and we're done! I loved how fresh, dewy and natural my skin looked, to complement the smokey eye and dark lip. Definitely a look that I am going to attempt to  recreate multiple times in the coming days. The collection is available at all Bobbi Brown outlets so go give it a look before it's sold out!
