Bobbi Brown’s books have been a counter top staple for women for years now. Filled with good, wholesome advice about embracing and enhancing beauty, we have devoured every word and soaked up her advice. Her latest book Pretty Powerful, will be no exception.
Pretty Powerful is packed with inspirational stories about the beauty in being confident. Beginning with Bobbi’s foolproof 10-step makeup guideline, she is prepared to hold the hand of even the most novice beauty buff.
The book focuses on beauty from the inside out – there’s a section of exercising, eating right and nourishing your body to get that happy, radiant glow that only a healthy life can give.
From there, the book is broken up into six segments. Each chapter focuses on a type of beauty, and the stories of wonderful and inspirational women.
Each chapter includes a feature about embracing beauty as well as a series of women who epitomise that style. Featuring bare-faced natural photos as well as the finished, made up look, the images are so inspiring. There are simple and helpful guidelines for achieving their looks but it’s obvious that the focus is on celebrating the beauty in being yourself.
Pretty Natural focuses on embracing your natural beauty and shirking the trends in favour of what makes you comfortable.
Pretty Radiant celebrates women who ooze positivity and light up any room they walk into. Makeup looks include shimmering cheeks, sparkling smiles and jewel toned eyes.
Pretty Strong channels the inner Iron Woman. Celebrating professional athletes and women who aren’t afraid to get things done. Full of wonderfully inspiring stories from triathletes, golfers and even cancer survivors who day after day express their beauty by powering on.
Pretty Classic appeals to the part of us that dreams of being Grace Kelly. Rosy cheeks, soft eyes and bold lips that create that timeless style we all strive for.
Pretty Authentic is the epitome of the modern power women – transparent, honest and true to their beliefs. This chapter includes warm, bronzed looks and natural lips and is filled with inspiring women chasing after their careers and causes
Finally, Pretty Bold is for the punk princesses. Channeling icons like Madonna and Lady Gaga, the bold girl is not afraid to colour outside the lines. Featuring the brightest and most daring looks in the book, these women fill
The book also contains “Pretty Powerful” features, a series of longer anecdotes focusing on special women who inspired Bobbi and truly epitomise their style of beauty. Our favourite was the gorgeous Gabourey Sidibe and her story about the power of will and self-confidence .
Unlike your standard instructional beauty book, Pretty Powerful embrace every aspect of being beautiful. Bobbi acknowledges that we all have a little bit of every one of those women in us all and encourages you to take it all on. She preaches the power of comfort in your own skin.
With such an inspiring and influential message, this book is a great bedside addition, or the perfect gift for any young woman in your life.
