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.”
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.
