Here are some of Bobbi's Pretty Powerful make-up personalities and confidence-boosting beauty tips.
You love the healthy, natural glow that comes from wearing subtle make-up and your mantra is "less is more".
"It starts with a sparkle in the eye and amazingly clear skin," says Bobbi. "These women are the epitome of health and wellness and understand that subtle style simply works."
Bobbi's top tips: Begin with a dab of corrector or concealer just where you need it most, then a light foundation or tinted moisturiser that blends into your skin. Go with a pretty blush that is the colour your cheeks turn when you exercise.
Choose a lip colour in the natural tone that appears when you bite your lips.
Looking radiant and exuding positive energy is your beauty goal, whether that is through bringing light and sparkle to your face or using colour.
"Pretty radiant women use both beauty and style to express their personalities," says Bobbi. "This doesn't mean over-the-top make-up. It's more about expressing their individuality with a pop of colour."
Bobbi's top tips: To bring colour, warmth and sheen to your face, apply a creamy blush. Shimmer powder looks gorgeous when dusted on cheekbones.
Light-reflective shimmer shadows are another beautiful way to add sparkle. Add creamy lipstick in a shade that is pretty and not too strong.
Your beauty routine is based around practicality and time-saving as you are athletic, sporty and often on the run.
"A woman can be strong in character or strong in body but it is pretty powerful when both qualities come together," says Bobbi.
Bobbi's top tips: If you are particularly active, tinted moisturiser evens out skin tone, won't look heavy or out of place, and stays on. For eyes, choose long-lasting products such as gel liner and waterproof mascara. Just a touch of gloss or balm is all you need for lips.
