I love that each year brings a fresh take on beauty. New products, new colors, new techniques — the beauty world is always changing. After years of heavy, contoured makeup, I think we are ready for a big shift. Here’s what I see happening in beauty for 2016.
People always ask me for beauty tips, and while I am all about the power of concealer, liner, and a great blush, my biggest piece of advice isn’t about makeup. If you want glowing skin and brighter eyes, you have to focus on how you take care of your body. Here are my six tips for refreshing and rebooting your body in 2016.

Every woman should have a natural shade of lipstick that she can swipe on without looking in the mirror. Here are Bobbi Brown's tips for finding the perfect shade.
During party season, when you might be going with more bold jewelry, let your accessories inspire your palette. It is a take on makeup that works, especially if you wear neutral clothes, like gray, black, and navy. Try it for your next night out. Here’s how:
Brows are often overlooked, but beautifully defined brows really can transform your face. Start with a powder brow product or an eyeshadow in a color that is close to your natural brow color. If you have black hair, go with a slightly softer shade like dark ash brown, or a deep brown black. If you are blonde, keep brows lighter but in the same tone as your hair color. Use a slanted brush with the powder, making sure to tap of any excess before applying to the brows. Use short, feathery strokes and brush the hair up to create a strong brow that still frames your face. ...
I have fallen in love with tequila. It’s not the same tequila we drank in college with a worm at the bottom. Tequila is the new vodka. It’s the perfect summer drink. Today’s tequila is fresh and tastes clean. I enjoy it best on the rocks with fresh lime juice. Sometimes with a bit of hot pepper added (burns calories right?), and sometimes with fresh mint.
Finding the right shade of blush is pretty simple. The key is to go with a blush that matches the color your cheeks when you exercise — usually a pink to peach tone. If you have alabaster or porcelain skin, you will look best in a pale pastel pink shade with cool tones. For skin that eventually tans by the end of the summer, go with a pink that is a bit dustier. For skin that tans easily, and rarely burns, go tawnier pink that has some brown tones in it. Women with tan, warm skin tones should choose an almost plum blush that looks like a rich pink when applied. For deeper skin tones, redder shades that have bluish shades like cranberry leave a beautiful finish.
When Bethany Mota started her YouTube channel at age 13, she never expected it to grow into something so huge — and so powerful. What started as a response to cyberbullying has turned into an interview with President Barack Obama and a spot on ABC’s Dancing With The Stars. Today her channel has almost 10 million subscribers and her videos, where she covers everything from beauty tips to holiday DIYs, easily rack up millions of views. ...
I usually do my makeup in the car because I’m always in a rush – multitasking on my way to work or to an event. If you’re caught on your way to a holiday party with no mirror in sight, don’t panic. Just follow these quick and easy steps to a flawless, mistake-proof look.
For holiday, you can bring your look from day to night with just two products. Start with a red lipstick that works with your skin tone. Choose between blue-red, orange-red or a deeper brown-red. I love a true blue-red or orange-red on very pale skin. Deep skin tones look great in a browner red. Use a brush to apply to define your lips and make sure your color is even. Next, add a little bit of sparkle to lined eyes using a shimmery eyeshadow to make eyes stand out. You’ll be ready in less time than it takes to pop open the champagne.
Foundation helps even out skin tone and hide imperfections but everyone struggles with how to find the right one for them. The key is all about finding a formula you love and that blends seamlessly into your skin. Here, Bobbi Brown shows you how to eliminate redness and even out skin tone using foundation, hide a blemish, and how to use powder to finish and set your look.
Getting rid of darkness under the eyes is one of the top beauty questions. The solution? It’s all about using a corrector and concealer. These products work together to tackle darkness and discoloration, leaving you looking radiant and rested. Here, Bobbi Brown walks you through how to properly use concealer to cover dark circles and correct any redness under the eyes — no matter what the cause.
Every year brings a new set of beauty trends. But while some are worth holding on to, others should be forgotten. This year, two really artificial beauty looks became big — contouring and lip injections. I’m about feeling confident and looking natural, so I hope this look stays in 2015. Reviewing this year in beauty, here’s what I loved, and what I didn’t:
