My blog over the last few months has been full of me having “start of something (everything) new” types of content. I like almost everything and I love to share some good shii with you so WHY THE HELL NOT share some of my favorite makeup items! I realize that soooo many people post this kind of content, but you’d be surprised how many people still ask *me* who doesn’t exactly post super cereal beauty tips or videos, for recommendations.
For this blog, I thought I’d start off with one of my favorite makeup brands, BENEFIT! I don’t want to bore you with the history of my makeup life BUT I’M GONNA BORE YOU A LITTLE! Long story short, I first discovered Benefit through my cousin Jess, who was painting her face with what I thought was nail polish but turns out it was one of their liquid cheek stains! (What a weird name for em LOL)
Now on to my faves! First I’d like to share HIGH BEAM! This beautiful little bottle encases the liquid highlight of the Liquid Highlight Gods. I have been using this highlight for years and I love how much I can cake on (cuz that’s in right now) and it still blends out cute! I’ve tried powder highlights before and there are some that I really like, but this is my go-to! There’s an itty bitty version here
Next is the Benefit Porefessional. This is something I haven’t actually used in a few years cuz I ran out LOL but I did really love it! My foundation looked smoother and I loved putting this on my nose cuz I noticed the redness of my nose wasn’t peeking out as much throughout the day. Mini guy here!
Cute fact/tip: I tried this with eyeshadow primer and it actually works too!
DALLAS AND HOOLA HAVE BEEN MY FAVE BRONZERS SINCE THE BEGINNING OF… me wearing Benefit makeup so like 6 years or something. I wouldn’t say this is the smoothest of bronzers, but when I apply this with a clean brush and blend them out a bit, I loooooove the definition and the way the colors look on my skin.
Normally, I use eyeshadow to do my eyebrows. *GASP* When I’m recording videos I don’t necessarily need my brows to look perfect so eyeshadow is the way to go most of the time. I did use their Brow Zings Tame & Shape Kit when my hair was lighter though, and I didn’t realize how easy it was to get them “on fleek.” Are people still saying that? Lol.
Last but not least, They’re Real! This mascara, in my opinion, is one of the best I’ve ever had. The wand has kept my lashes from being clumpy as I can be a bit clumsy when I apply mascara and the mascara itself, in my experience it lasts forever, doesn’t really smudge, and it comes off easily when I’m done clogging my pores for the day.
Do you use any of these?! What are some of your favorite Benefit products as I’m always wanting to try out new products but like to know what people think, especially those of us who have stuff in common.
Have an amazing day!
