Bobbi Brown has been a role model for me since college. Her ability to balance being a mother of three, a wife, a lifestyle guru, a businesswoman, and a philanthropist is nothing short of awe-inspiring. Not to mention she’s a great friend! If I ever need anything, Bobbi’s just one phone call away. She prefers talking on the phone or meeting face to face much more than texting or sending e-mails, and that kind of authentic interaction is the reason why she’s such an inspiring person. Bobbi truly cares for her friends and for women in general, so it’s no surprise that her favorite charity is Dress for Success (she’s been promoting the organization for a decade!), a non-profit that provides interview clothes to women all over the world. To build on that initiative, Bobbi has launched the Pretty Powerful Campaign for Women and Girls, which is dedicated to making sure that women of all ages receive the education and life skills necessary to thrive and succeed.
100% of the proceeds from the campaign will go to Dress for Success, including those from the new limited edition pot rouge! I never, ever leave home without a swipe of it on my face and lips. There’s a mirror on the top of the compact, so it went with me to New York Fashion Week, Paris Fashion Week, and to Puerto Rico for a family trip with my son and hubby. It’s perfect for touch-ups – even in the jungle! The pot rouge is the same creamy bestseller that we love, but in the prettiest pink Bobbi’s created yet. It’s universally flattering, and yes, very powerful. Makeup may seem trivial in your career, but the better you look, the better you feel and will work, and that’s the whole idea behind Dress for Success. According to Bobbi, “It’s about being confident, and about being who you are.” So stop what you’re doing right now, and order one of these immediately! Then leave Bobbi a comment below to show your support! When it comes to helping other women, how can you say no? Available until September 1st at Bobbi Brown and Macy’s for $25.
