Benebabes show Matthew Williamson they’re real

Benebabes in Matthew Williamson

Benefit has to be one of the most fun places to work, therefore when it comes to #funfridays, as least three Friday’s spring to mind that have been beyond fabulous.
However, today has to top them all!

To celebrate the return of Benefit as the official cosmetics sponsor for world-renowned designer Matthew Williamson at London Fashion Week SS14 this September, us benebabes were lucky enough to delve into the coloured silks, feathers, and prints ourselves! We created some unforgettable Matthew moments… and you can too, just #ohMW to share your love for Matthew Williamson.

We were prepped, primed and perfected, with makeuppers by the Benefit beauty duo, Lisa Potter-Dixon and Lauren Hogsden, and then draped head-to-toe in garments that a girl can only dream of!

As normal hard-working females with a love of beauty and fashion, we didn’t hold back, and even before our morning lattes we were unwrapping the Matthew Williamson tissue paper like it was Christmas Day!

Georgia said that she, “loved getting the chance to try more daring makeup looks, I wouldn’t normally go this dark. I totally understand now why people buy designer clothes, the fit and quality was amazing!”

Whereas Ashleigh’s favourite part of the day was “putting on the electric stripe pink dress. I want to go out and party!”

Lauren felt that it was “an amazing way to spend a Friday! The grey, feather, embellished skirt, my eyes lit up as soon as I saw it and as I zipped it up it fit like a T!”

And last by not least, Lisa stated that “from now on, Fridays will never be the same unless I’m head-to-toe in M-dubs! The pink coat is the dream!!! I’m not quite sure how I’ll survive without it in my life! (cracks open piggy bank)…”

What's so funny?
