Bobbi Brown Says Mauve Is The Color For Fall

It's only mid July, and already, the makeup colors for fall are in the beauty headlines. We know that mauve is the 'it' color for the autumn season, because Bobbi Brown says so, and we trust her sharp eye.

We, here at, love the Bobbi Brown makeup philosophy. And we are not alone. Women adore Bobbi Brown's no nonsense makeup routine, and her healthy, natural approach to looking good.

And as Bobbi would remind us all, try to be the best you can be. Don't try to look like someone else. When she was growing up, all-American model, Cheryl Tiegs, was Bobbi's beauty icon. Cheryl was tall, slender with blonde hair and blue eyes. Bobbi Brown looked nothing like her and was disappointed in not resembling Cheryl Tiegs, until she saw actress Ali MacGraw with her long dark hair and eyes. Bobbi then finally "saw the possibilty of my own beauty."

What's so special about mauve? Bobbi Brown says that mauve flatters all complexions. According to her website, the mauve look is designed around vintage-inspired hues with a modern twist."Influenced with hints of purple, gray, and brown, mauve makeup is a cool neutral that's very wearable," Bobbi explains.

The mauve look is soft and pretty. Nothing bright or harsh here. You won't look over-done.
