Zest’s Acting Beauty Editor Leyla chats to the world-renowned makeup artist and gets her Pretty Powerful secrets
‘Being beautiful isn’t about being flawless, it’s about having self-confidence and playing up the qualities that make you unique,’ says Bobbi.
After working with a host of celebrities, athletes and real women including philanthropist Lauren Bush, boxer Keisher McLeod-Wells and singing superstar Estelle, Bobbi found that each woman offered a motivational and inspiring tale. Her new book Pretty Powerful brings their stories to life with achievable makeup tips, and tricks as well as standout products and makeover ideas.
5 golden rules for glowing skin
‘So many women obsess over one feature and their perception of themselves inevitably gets skewed. Everywhere women look, they’re confronted with images that showcase a perfectionism that’s not realistically achievable.'
Bobbi's book highlights how to accentuate natural features and stop fixing flaws. 'Between long hours at the office, family responsibilities and endless to-do lists, it’s not feasible for women to spend hours in front of the mirror trying to emulate an airbrushed photo, but I understand that it’s very real to feel that kind of pressure.'
‘That’s why my new book showcases real women, as well as celebrities and athletes. I wanted to show women that there isn’t just one definition of beauty.’
