giveaway with bobbi brown and charla krupp

We have a really great giveaway this week. We have 5 copies of each book to give to 5 lucky readers. Jenn and I have both read How Not to Look Old by Charla Krupp (she is a beauty editor and expert, known for her real woman's approach to looking fabulous). And, of course you all know how much we adore Bobbi Brown here at Beauty in Real Life. We thought both of these books would be excellent reference points to jump into Spring.


Bobbi Brown with Marie Clare Katigbak

Bobbi Brown began the trend toward natural-looking cosmetics with a simple philosophy: Women want to look and feel like themselves, only prettier and more confident. Today, top editors at elite fashion magazines--including In Style, Vogue, Allure, and Harpers Bazaar--revere her, and celebrities and millions of regular women throughout the world swear by her beauty advice. Now Bobbi Brown has written THE book redefining beauty for women over 40, BOBBI BROWN LIVING BEAUTY. In this refreshing look at beauty and aging, Bobbi offers specific makeup tricks for a stunning face--showing how makeup can solve most of the flaws that many women go under the knife to fix. In fact, the right makeup can create an even skin tone, lift the cheeks, plump a smile...even take years off any woman's face. The key is to use makeup to enhance each woman's best features and showcase her natural beauty. With step-by-step makeup instructions and quotes from beautiful women like Marcia Gay Harden, Vera Wang, Susan Sarandon, and, Bobbi Browns natural, celebratory approach to aging will enlighten and inspire women everywhere.

I have been just diving into Charlas new book. I can't help but laugh at all of her little quotes. So fun with some really great tips and advice in there as well. This is a definite must read for anyone trying to look even a tad younger.
