Bobbi Brown brings party-glam up a notch at the recent Jenny Packham Spring RTW 2017 by redefining the new rock and roll beauty

The collection was a stunning result of unique inspiration drawn from 31 iconic Hollywood women. Vintage designs were given a contemporary edge at Jenny Packham with the introduction of rich colours, sequin embellishments and luxe fabrics that scream polished rock and roll.

Here, Bobbi Brown redefines modern-day rock and roll with a look that is bold as it is sophisticated. A subtle pink flush here and a stained rich nude lip there create a feminine base that is juxtaposed against dramatic eyes worthy of the modern punk princess. To create the anti-perfect smudged eye:


Step 1: Start by applying Beach Nude Eye Gloss, focusing on the lower lid to prep for the drama ahead.

Step 2: Keeping the lid bare, apply Mahogany Eye Shadow to the lower lash line, layering and smudging as you go to create a slept-in effect.

Step 3: Apply generous coats of Eye Opening Mascara as a finishing touch to the new sophisticated rock and roll look.   

Here's the full product cheat sheet by Bobbi Brown to recreate the full look:
