We’ve got two honorary Benebabes to introduce you to! Vloggers Katie from Mummy Daddy Me and Lucy from Dear Beautiful got to visit Benetowers to meet Lisa Potter-Dixon and the team and to star in a fun new “wake up to make-up” video course for the girls over at www.channelmum.com. Read more to find out more about Katie and Lucy amazing day out and their fave Benefit goodies!
I had so much fun going behind the scenes at Benefit HQ. Firstly the girls are all absolutely lovely and we had such a fun day, and secondly the office is amazing. We got to have a sneak behind the scenes tour (and lots of selfie opportunities) and it was probably one of the coolest offices I have ever been. It was so much filming the Channel Mum videos, plus since going to HQ I have completely transformed my face and my brows – I have so much to thank Lisa PD for!
My Top Three Benefit products are-
- Hoola. Without a doubt No 1 has to be Hoola. I have been using it ever since I was about 16 and I have yet to find a bronzer that even comes close. I love it and for that reason it will always be the ultimate staple in my make up bag.
- Precisely, My Brow Pencil. When we had our day at Benefit HQ Lisa told me how to sort out my seriously over plucked brows (I plucked from the top as a teen horror of horrors). Since then I have had so many people comment on how my brows look fuller and thicker and it is all down toBenefit’s Brow Products. I love how easy it is to transform them with the Precisely my brow pencil.
- Gimme Brow. Likewise a staple to my makeup bag nowadays is Gimme Brow. It is a great way of adding fullness and definition to my otherwise very thin brows.
Getting to work on the make up videos with Benefit and Channel Mum was literally a bit of a dream day for me. My husband calls me a “make up junkie” and I really do buy a ridiculous amount of products to make me look younger or more flawless or just because the packing is pretty… it’s a real addiction I tell you! So spending a day talking make up with Lisa Potter-Dixon was so so SO exciting. Not least because some of my favourite products are actually from Benefit.
One of my absolute faves has to be the infamous Hoola; the perfect bronzer, contour and (as I now have learnt from Lisa) eye shadow in one. Although now I’ve discovered that Hoola Lite is a thing, I’m lusting over that for the wintery months when I need a slightly lighter sunkissing. On the filming day I was introduced to the gorgeous Galifornia blusher, which I have worn every day since; I find that lots of blushers look a bit too pink and “little girly” on my skin, but the coral tone of Galifornia is lovely – and it smells absolutely divine. And a final mention has to go to Sunbeam, which is such a gorgeous highlighter with lovely golden shade; it gives me that much needed boost when my tired mummy skin is a bit lacklustre.
