Put on your holiday look with Benefit Cosmetics

Hellooo! Oh my what a busy busy week! I’ve been extremely busy at work and busy with a commercial photoshoot and also recipe development for a magazine T__T I finally have a little breather now to update. Sometimes, things gets a bit busy and that’s when I have minimal sleep, no make up, bad skin and whatevernots. So last week I was at the Benefit Cosmetics Holiday Look workshop to learn some tricks to put on a easy make up for this holiday season with a breeze (and also under 10 minutes)

The workshop was held in Benefit Cosmetics Boutique at Starhill Gallery (above Sephora; the entrance is from Sephora, via staircase near to the cashier) It’s a very spacious and clean boutique, perfect if you wanna have a private party with your girls.

I’ve always loved benefit cosmetics packaging, retro, quirky and fun! Their products are also interchangable and can be mixed to work as a different product! Like did you know, the dandelion blusher is a hit item in Asia, not only as a blusher but as a light face powder because if gives more colour to Asian fair skins; while the bronzer is too dark for us.

Now with all these products to play with, we can’t wait to try out! As we receive note to go with a bareface. Haha bare for me cause it was quite early and I only had sunscreen on. Before that, the trainer in Benefit Cosmetics, James, showed us a little demo on Sabby Prue on how to create a simple holiday look with some of the products.

So first, prep your skin and apply foundation as you normally would

Scrap some Benefit Fake Up Concealer and mix with Benefit High Bean on the back of your hand. Mix and apply it on your dark circles and on your cheek area. This will cover dark eye circles and highlight your cheeks

Brush over Benefit Dandelion all over face lightly to give your face some colour.

With the Benefit BADgal waterproof eyeliner, line your upper lid and lower lash line, it doesn’t have to be perfect. Use a brush or cotton bud to smudge your liner for a smokey look.

Apply Benefit They’re Real mascara . Use the tip of the mascara to push your lashes up. With this, you can skip curling your lashes. Apply Benefit Gimme Brow to fill in your brow.

Use Benefit Bella Bamba lip gloss to apply on your lips.

After that we got to play with some of the products and I couldn’t help but to use MORE than what was needed haha  I gotta say, mixing the Fake Up concealer and High Bean is quite good. High Beam is too ‘shiney’ for me so by mixing it, it creates a more subtle look. It covers the dark eye circle well too! Also, Bella Bamba lip gloss has a very pretty salmon pink shade. I’m not a fan of lip gloss at all, but it was neither too sticky nor glossy. It was just nice to create a luscious lip effect haha

  3. I’ve always loved Benefit b’coz their packaging is just so retro and irresistable, but sadly their price is just to steep for me… 🙁 need to really save up money to purchase their items…
