Holiday Looks by Benefit

It’s Christmas party after Christmas party these days (hence the crazy traffic!!!) so we all have to look our best for these reunions and get togethers! Whether it’s something that requires you to look vavavoom or just a more polished and put together version of yourself—BENEFIT can definitely help you! My good friend and top Beauty blogger, Nikki Tiu of Ask Me Whats and Aubrey Bautista of Benefit Philippines, created these two looks for the holidays with me as the willing guinea pig of course. Another dear friend of mine, Samantha Godinez-Valenciano took these photos by the way!:) It was my first time to work professionally with both Nikki and Sam—it was definitely more laughing than actual working 🙂 🙂 Here are two step by step guides for you to follow—super no brainer! 

This is a look that is for everyday prettiness, using just a hint of color to give you a natural glow 🙂

After prepping your skin with B. Right Skincare, prime with our top-selling product, The POREfessional. Apply to clean, lightly moisturized skin. Pat on problem areas & blend with fingertips.

It quickly minimizes the appearance of pores & fine lines for smoother-than-smooth skin! Plus you can apply this silky, lightweight balm alone, under or over makeup. Its translucent, oil-free formula complements all skintones and helps makeup stay put.

Dip the angled brush into your soft, pigmented wax. With smooth, angled strokes, shape & define brows. Use the blending brush to apply your setting powder. This powder fills in sparse areas and locks brow in place. You can also mix wax and powder together for more color payoff!

Base: Apply creaseless cream eyeshadow in r.s.v.p. over eyelid
Contour: Blend longwear powder shadow in thanks a latte into crease
Highlight: Sweep longwear powder shadow call my bluff across brow bone
Trick: Pat call my bluff onto the center of eyelid for an eye-opening effect!

Brush three strokes of Benetint on the apples of your cheeks & blend quickly with fingertip. Apply on lips & blend. For a deeper “pop” of color, repeat.

FIVE: FINISH off Ultra Plush Lip Gloss Lollibop, a soft and silky gloss that glide on soooo smooth, drenching lips in luscious color that’s never sticky. Apply to lips for smooth, luscious coverage.

Building from the first look which was more natural, 
you could go from day to night with just a few more steps! 

ONE: Blend on face with brush or fingertips our oil-free brightening liquid foundation, Hello Flawless Oxygen Wow. Build from light to medium coverage depending on the fun meter of the party you are attending!

TWO: For that smoky-eye look that will last you all night, glide on eyelid our crease-free and smudge-free creaseless cream shadow in Holy Smokes!

THREE: Layer longwear powder shadow over your creaseless cream shadow for extra staying power (for those extra long holiday nights *wink). Apply Thanks A Latte for that golden glow.

FOUR:Finish your smoky-eye look with our blacker than black They’re Real Mascara.
Position wand horizontally & wiggle brush from side to side, base to tip, to achieve maximum volume, length & lift. Hold wand vertically & stroke upward to curl & separate. Layer generously as desired.

FIVE:Rock on with Rocketeur, a warm feminine “rush of heat” powder in a rockin’ rose gold shade that puts the rock into your roll! Sweep a clean blush brush across Rockateur and tap off the excess powder. Sweep onto the cheek bones and blend out for desired finish. Also best over your favorite tint!

SIX: Glide Dare Me Hydra-smooth Lip Color directly onto lips. For precise application, use the custom double-slanted tip to follow your lip shape, then fill in. Layer to build color.
