I've been meaning to share this new little find with you for sometime but this morning while I was getting dressed I finally remembered to take the pictures.
A few disclaimers
1. This is not an ad I'm just sharing as I know most of my readers are in the same age bracket as me and umm maybe your faces look a little like mine - needing augmentation :) or not.
2. I'm no model ( roflol I know you needed to be reminded ) try not to be too scared by the before
3. I'm no make up expert consultant - I'm a whack it on hope for the best run out the door type girl. I wish I was very talented in that area but I'm not.
So what's my new secret ? A few weekends back in Mebourne Mel and I were in Myers where we stumbled on the Benefit Cosmetic bar. I had read about their product and the packaging was so so cute so we stopped for a closer look.
To be honest I wasn't nterested in buying anything. I sort of thought that this range was too young and trendy to be suitable for me ( nearing 40) and it wasn't available in Queensland.
How wrong was I!
The lovely Benefit girl worked her magic and I was so impressed ( unlike me! ) I bought two products on the spot.
The trick then is always being able to get it looking the same when you do it. But seriously it's so easy. Just goes on there are no tricks. Then I found out there is a Benefit counter on the coast - at Robina in Myers :)
My skin has been givng me grief due to pure neglect - very red lately and spotty so last weekend when I had a myers voucher and time on a Saturday (it is only open Tues to Sat ) I headed down there to see what else I could add. The ladies were super busy so all I managed was to ask about the concealaholic kit which I nabbed and then came home to read up on.
I was scared by all the little bits as I'm a FAST make up girl- no time but they promised me I would love it so I gave it a go.
One week later and I'm such a huge fan.
Here is the proof. - No photo shopping (hand on my heart ) hurt me not to I swear - taken in my mirror this morning before and after you can click for bigger.
I know be nice if I smiled and umm and if I used eye make up and blush or did my hair but you get the idea!
So the after is just the confessions of a concealaholic kit with the some kind of gorgeous foundation and girl meets pearl illuminator. I used some lip gloss too. That's it.
Love it so much. I'm wanting to get their new mascara
and also one of their little tints which you can use as a blush or lip gloss. So they are next on my list oh and this - smokin eyes
Myers stock Benefit products - the girls are super helpful and they call you gorgeous - which is really lovely - even if it's not true.
