ExtraMoistBalm_pr Part time Telluride local, beauty expert/entrpreneur Bobbi Brown started a makeup revolution in 1991 with just a handful of lipsticks and a simple notion: “Women want to look and feel like themselves, only prettier and more confident.”

Bobbi told Telluride Inside… and Out years ago she thinks all women are beautiful, regardless of age, race, shape or size. Bobbi’s product philosophy can be summed up in a few words: make-up that is super-wearable and easy to apply, and products that enhance a woman’s God-given gifts.

“What sets each one of us apart is a strong personal style. Makeup is part of that style. All it takes to look your best is the right makeup and the know-how to apply it correctly. Women often look better without makeup. I prefer a face that looks like itself to one that is obviously made up. Having said that, less is not necessarily more. I believe in being who you are, not who you were 10 years ago, or who you will never become, but it takes quite a bit of well-applied makeup to look natural. Sometimes more is just right.”

Interested in learning how to gild the lily without looking like Norma Desmond or Lady Gaga? Thanks to Telluride AIDS Benefit board member/friend of Bobbi Brown, Andi Alexander – Andi’s husband designed and built Bobbi’s home – you can learn how to look natural with a little help from your friends at Brown’s company – and continue to support TAB’s beneficiaries on the Western Slope all the way to Africa. (Bobbi Brown, who lost a stepbrother to AIDS, as well as many friends from the world of fashion and beauty, is particularly sympathetic to the cause.)

The Telluride AIDS Benefit is hosting a fundraiser at La Pizzeria in the Mountain Village Wednesday, March 31, 11 a.m. – 2 p.m. The price of entry is $60, which includes a master make-up lesson with a focus on tricks of the trade for the unique and challenging Telluride environment; lunch and a glass of wine; and an opportunity to win a door prize.
