Bobbi Brown Cosmetics is once again partnering up with Dress for Success, a non-profit organization that empowers women in reentering the work force and to improving their lives. This organization will provide women makeup tips, new attire for future interviews, support and advice to move forward.

Bobbi Brown Cosmetics has also created a special edition of their Pot Rouge.  A makeup product that can be used as a cheek color or a lip color, this product will be featured at your participating Bobbi Brown counters and a hundred percent of the proceeds will go to charity.

Using this product is quite easy.  Application is as simple as using your fingertips or, if that is too messy for you, using the proper tool such as a foundation brush or any synthetic brush.  This product is a cream base with a sheer finish.  You can layer as much product as  you want without making it too opaque or caked on.

How To: Cheeks & Lips

1. By using your ring finger, apply the color onto the apple of the cheeks (tip: smile to find the right placement)

2. Using the same finger, blend the color towards your hairline. This should give a faded, sheer look for a natural flush of color.

3. If the desired look is deeper, repeat the step till you’re happy with the look.

4. For the lips, you can also use your finger or a lip brush to do the application.

Pot Rouge is retailed at $25 and, for the special edition product,  a hundred percent of the proceeds will go to support Dress for Success.

Dress for Success will go on from the month of March till September. Support the cause and check out your nearest Bobbi Brown counter.
