My Benefit Makeover!

Hello lovelies! 

I know it's been a while since I've done a blog post, but I've had about a billion exams the past week or so, so I thought I'd focus more on revision (like I've been banging on about in previous posts). Fortunately, I only have two exams left and so I have loads more time on my hand! WOO FOR MORE POSTS! 

About a week ago, I tagged along with my sister (alyssiarose) and Kerrie (Pish Posh and Polish) and went and had my make-up done at the Benefit counter in Camp Hopsons. We had a cheeky McDonalds and a gander around Paperchase and New Look before hand - I didn't pick anything up purely due to the fact I had hardly any money on me at the time *sad face*. 

ZERO MAKEUP! (I realise I look horrid with no make up on)

We got into Camp Hopsons, and I was immediately nominated to have my make-up done first as there was only one lady to do it at the time. I had never had my make-up done like that before, so I didn't know what to expect... but the lady was so nice! She started applying the slap on my face, and I could feel the difference between the foundation I usually wear and the one she was using. It was so light, but covered so well. 

mmmm skin imperfections

She then whacked this bad boy under my eyes (where the horrible dark circles are), and this is honestly one of the biggest improvements I have ever seen. It's a hydrating concealer, so around the edge was the bit that hydrates under your eyes, and the concealer was in the middle. So little was needed to cover up, and it covered up so well. I seriously recommend this to anyone! 

finished look

I understand that I don't look that different at all, but that's because I asked for it to look natural, and I think she did a very good job. Some of the main differences that I don't tend to do on my face is the eyebrows, the eyeshadow and lipstick. I don't think anything looks too out of place though!

Here's a list of some of the wonderful things piled onto my face:

They're all amazing products, and I'd seriously recommend them to anyone! Especially the Fake Up Concealer and Lipstick, especially if you're someone who doesn't usually wear lipstick - it hardly looks like there's anything on your lips! The staff were so nice, and I generally had a really nice day out! It was topped off with going to see Robert Downey Jr. in Iron Man 3 (BRILLIANT FILM)!

Thank you all for reading, I hope you enjoyed it! Again, sorry for the lack of posts! They'll be written more frequently now, hopefully!


  1. I had a great day! Can't wait to do it again!

  2. You look gorgeous. I havent heard of fake up before, but sounds great. x
