City Pulse

By Ashley Goldsmith

When I think of powerful women in the beauty industry, Bobbi Brown instantly comes to mind. In celebration of strong women and Bobbi’s belief that all women possess natural beauty, and with the right tools, are empowered to a higher level of pretty. The beauty giantess has created the campaign “Pretty Powerful” a video contest, now through February 9th, where real women share their transformative stories and tips by submitting videos on how you fabulous readers go from Pretty to Powerful using Bobbi Brown Cosmetics.

From the submissions, 15 finalists will be chosen and sent a personalized selection of Bobbi Brown Cosmetics and the new Color Strips collection to create their next Pretty Powerful video submission. In March, the gallery of Pretty Powerful videos will be open for public voting her website. For every vote cast in the Pretty Powerful contest, Bobbi will donate $1 to Dress for Success, an organization she has partnered with, that provides underprivileged women with interview suits and career development advice. Bobbi will hand pick the three grand prize winners, who will be flown to New York for a master class and brunch with Bobbi!
