So far my semester break is doing fine but I will be quite busy starting next week! University bazaar to run and participating in an entrepreneurship workshop. Gosh, how I wish going back to the beach for a laid back weekend.
Anyway, I was invited to Benefit Party by Box Culture, a local monthly beauty box subscription. The theme of the event is Fake Up, inspired by Sherlock Holmes or Detective Gadget , you get the logic.
I was excited to be there for a makeup lesson. You might think that I am good at it but you're wrong! I still need some improvement on my skill, especially eyeshadows! I always end up looking like a panda while attempting to create smokey eyes.
While guests were busy learning make up, I was snapping bunch of pictures that would make us drool all over our computer screen. Heh, you gotta love their products! Just look at their packaging!!!
While looking through the gorgeous products of Benefit, a sales assistant approached me. She was cute in a way, with big dolly looking eyes. I asked her about the products and also how to conceal my dark spots. What I know is, using a normal concealer wouldn't help at all. After she examined my skin, she advised to use light concealer to brighten up my spots then use a regular concealer to conceal, the result was obvious - my spots were less visible!
I also mentioned to her about my cakey face after few hours due to oiliness. Beside recommending Benefit's best seller POREfessional, she also suggested that it is okay to skip foundation as my face is suitable for light makeup (haha, I was so happy hearing about that!). What I can do is to apply oil control primer, then conceal any dark circles, spots and redness. After that, a light amount of powder would help to set my makeup whole day! I tried her suggestion and it worked pretty well!
I wasn't able to capture my before and after look because the place was too packed! However, I would to say thank you to the sale assistant (I didn't get her name) for those wonderful tips! The event went well with refreshment (Malaysian loves refreshment) and the makeup lesson.
I hope you guys reading my post on this event! Do you own Benefit products, what do you think about their products? I have not purchase their products because it ain't cheap! However, I might think of getting their famous POREfessional when I work. :)
