Who is SHE in Makeup?
Bobbi Brown started out just a regular girl from around the way, just like you and just like me. She had a burning desire and a passion for natural beauty, SHE was on fire! Check out how she strategically set out to take the makeup world by storm. She is now the Editor in Chief for Yahoo Beauty. If SHE can do it, why can’t we?
Bobbi knew what she needed to do, where she needed to be, and that she was going to WIN. When we think of why we were created and what our purpose in life is, we have to think it all the way through. I’m sure Bobbie didn’t wake up one day and say I’m moving to New York. She knew that was the capital for Fashion and make up was definitely a part of that.
If you have a passion or a desire to start living on purpose start where you are. Write down your visions and find out what it takes to make it happen. Will it be easy, no it won’t, but I guarantee you, it will all be worth it in the end. Let’s take a look at Bobbi’s journey to success.
In natural beauty,
SHE is that CHICK!
It all started with a simple idea – natural looking makeup and a lipstick that looked like lips.
“The secret to beauty is simple:
be who you are.”
