Instagram: Benefit Cosmetics Takeover

benefit labelsforlunch take over fashion for lunch rockitude make up kit set

This weekend I worked with Benefit Cosmetics to do an Instagram takeover. I have been a huge fan of Benefit for years and years, so it was a huge honour to work with them!

I thought it might be fun to share the images from takeover on my blog and talk a little about why I love the products I featured so much!

Gimme Brow

This is without a doubt my all-time favourite brow product. I have always had pale skin and bleached blonde hair, so it’s important to make my features pop! My hair is naturally fair and so are my eyebrows. I have spent years darkening them with eyebrow pencils, which is always time consuming and often the pencils have a slight ginger tone (what’s that about?!) Gimme Brow is literally the best product for eyebrows ever!!! It works like a mascara wand, you brush it over your eyebrows, it instantly tidies them and amps up the colour. You can get it in two shades, the lighter one is perfect for fair girls who need a boost, the darker one is perfect if you have darker features. I love this product so much I have two of the light brown and one in dark brown. I use the darker one for nights out when I want a bit more impact and I use the light brown for day time use. The reason I have two is because I have two make up bags. One in my handbag, one at home. I’m lost without this product!

World Famous Neutrals 

I’m desperate for as eyes as if as Bambi’s! I wish I hadn’t been born with little peepers, but luckily for me, Benefit make kits like this to help my eyes look a little more fabulous! There are so many things to love about this World Famous Neutrals set; The colours are perfect and it includes a ‘tips and tricks’ guide to make sure you get the best out of the kit. It also has a mirror inside the box which is pretty handy. The great thing about Benefit’s gift sets is the fact they are a great price and they contain colours and products you need and want!

Handbag Essentials

When I head out for the evening I take my full make-up bag, but it is nice to have a few essentials for touch ups. I’m addicted to Benefit’s High Beam and Benetint. These are both mini’s from the Rockitude box set. I have the full sized versions for when I’m applying make up at home, but these minis are perfect for carrying around in my handbag!
