Real beauty, by the book! Loving Bobbi Brown’s Pretty Powerful

I was SO excited to get stuck into Bobbi Brown’s latest beauty book, Pretty Powerful, that I virtually pounced on an early copy I spotted on-counter at John Lewis a few weeks back!

I sat engrossed while the girlfriend I was shopping with got an impromptu makeover (btw, she was THE happiest she’s been with a store make-up consultation EVER. She looked amazing – I’d been telling her for ages to try out Bobbi’s Extra Tinted Moisturizing Balm SPF 25, as she’s not a fan of foundation, and she hasn’t looked back. Instant glow, gorgeous-smelling, hydration and year-round sunscreen protection. Perfect!).

My friend also snapped up a gorgeous red Lip Gloss and those two products, she said, would totally transform her make-up bag and mad mama beauty routine. In a matter of seconds, they made her feel fresher and glowier, but not “made-up”.

And, in fact, that’s what Pretty Powerful is all about. In true Bobbi style, it spotlights women, of all ages, styles and walks of life, tells their inspiring stories – in their words – and shows how the simplest beauty tweaks can enhance their natural beauty and help them feel like them, at their glowing, confident best (something nonstopmama firmly stands by, too!).

Packed with tips, it’s another GREAT book by Bobbi – check it out! (it’s Christmas-pressie perfect, too!!).
