Day to Night Makeup Essentials from Benefit Cosmetics
We love when we can go from day to night with our makeup, and with Benefit Cosmetics this is oh so very easy!
Benefit Cosmetics has made a name for themselves as one of the highest-quality, fun-loving makeup brands in the world. Their creative, colourful packaging and extensive range of fabulous make up products have made them a household favourite across the globe. So today we bring you a selection of our favourite products that are perfect for a day to night transformation!
How many times have you been in the office and then invited to drinks, dinner, or any sort of event that evening, but didn’t have the time to pop home to freshen up? Well, ladies and gents, I can confidently tell you that the ever-lingering fear of wanting to look your best without having the time to head home first is no more. Benefit Cosmetics brings you a one-stop makeup bag range that’s compact enough to carry to work and will have you looking bright-eyed and bushy-tailed all from the comfort of your office chair.
To start, there is the Hello Happy Soft Blur Foundation. This lightweight foundation evens out skin tone and blurs imperfections with light-medium coverage without that heavy-on-the-skin feel. It comes in a flat bottle, so sacrificing half your make up bag with a heavy glass bottle is no longer a problem you’ve to worry about.
Contouring is simple with their now-infamous Hoola Bronzer. It’s small enough to fit in any make up bag and the tight-bristled brush and honey-toned bronzer makes it an absolute staple for any contour-advocate. (Their Hoola bronzer comes in an uber-handy travel size mini too!)
The Dandelion Brightening Finishing Powder is a sheer, ballerina-pink and takes your complexion from dull to radiant in the sweep of a brush. We recommend using it as a finishing powder, as the hint of shimmer will brighten and set your face to perfection when dusted with their natural-bristle brush. It also comes in a travel size mini!
Their brand-new Brow Contour Pro is taking brow mavens by storm. This 4-in-1 pencil makes it simple for you to achieve clean, shaped brows. Define, and highlight your brows with a lighter brow shade, deeper brow shade, edge definer and arch highlighter, all in the one product! View the 5 shades and their ‘How to Apply’ tutorial here.
You can leave your chunky eye shadow palette at home with the confidence that the Benefit Big Sexy Eye Kit will see to all of your eye-shadow needs! It’s beyond easy to get bigger, sexier eyes with They’re Real! Duo ShadowBlender. The perfectly paired neutral palette lasts 12 budge proof hours and the custom ShadowBlender ensures expert application every time!
If winged eye-liner is your be-all and end-all when it comes to eye make up, then you haven’t lived until you’ve given Benefit’s They’re Real! Gel Eyeliner Pen a whirl. The matte black gel formula is waterproof and won’t budge, smudge, or dry out for 24 hours! It’s a slender pen-shaped product so those pesky pots and brushes can be left at home without worry!
If I was to leave my house at any one time, it could be almost guaranteed that I would have a Benefit mascara in my handbag! I haven’t strayed from Benefit’s range of mascara since I first tried Bad Gal Lash in secondary school. Their new ‘They’re Real Lengthening Mascara’ is by far the best mascara on the market. It lengthens, curls, volumizes, lifts and separates.
Benefit believe that if at first you don’t succeed, apply more lipstick. And what better lipstick than their ‘They’re Real! Double the Lip’. With one easy stroke with their Custom Teardop Tip, your lips will be fuller and brighter for a full 8 hours.
Overall, Benefit Cosmetics is one of our most truly-loved brands out there. They promote that ‘laughter is the best cosmetic’ and that’s a slogan we can get behind 100%! Find all of their products in the #DublinTown outlets on 17 South William Street, Fleet Street, as well as in Arnotts and Debenhams on Henry Street!
