Today I’ve decided to keep my makeup minimal, as I will spend most of my time (and money, le segh) choosing the items for my home makeover.
I’ve started with the brand’s Aqua Primer, it has a lovely light texture that smooths the face and doesn’t clog the pores. Then I have applied Benefit’s Erase Paste under the eyes which is brilliant for counteracting the blue tones. I have finished off with Rouge Bunny Rouge’s Flawless face Powder Precious Velvet in Piano Forte. It has a medium coverage and feels light on the skin. I don’t usually use powders but am experimenting with some at the moment.
To give myself some glow, I have dabbed Benefit’s High Beam on the cheek bones, under the brow bone, above the upper lip and on the bridge of the nose. From
If you are a regular reader, you probably know my love for Benefit’s sets, so today I want to show you their Feelin’ Dandy set (£24.50/$28).
It comes in a cute packaging, as usual, and contains the following products:
0.13 oz Posetint, 0.1 oz Dandelion,0.13 oz High Beam, 0.22 oz Ultra Plush Dandelion and Mini powder brush. You also get a mirror and a step-by-step tutorial.
I am already a huge fan of ChaCha tint and Benetint and I really do hope that Benefit bring out a berry tint in the future. It is a stain that can be used both on lips and cheeks but I personally love using it on cheeks much better. It gives a gorgeous pinky tint and stays on really well. Just make sure you blend it quickly, as it does set.
I love this pale pink blusher for winter time, it gives a beautiful flush on my light skin, which looks very natural, as if I just had a walk. I also like how it blends into the skin, although I like the staying power of Posietint better, of course.

Oh wow, there is a new blush from Benefit Cosmetics that will be available in February. It is called Hervana and the promo photo is very Benefit.
