“Let me start by saying I have always been a huge fan of Benefit Cosmetics. Ok really—with that packaging, how could you not be?! I remember when I was younger I secretly wanted to be one of those Benefit girls behind the counter (hey, I guess I got my wish today in a different form!). One of the main reasons I love Benefit is because not only are the products great, they are packaged so perfectly. Plus, since many of the products have multiple uses (lip/cheek stains, etc..), they’re SO easy to travel with. Here are my faves to give off that summer glow you want for Memorial Day Weekend. Scroll down for the full tutorial and products!

Step 1:

 I love to use the big easy multi-balancing complexion perfector because it spreads so easily, is lightweight and gives a velvety finish. I just apply it with my fingertips to moisturized skin.

Step 2:

Next I apply the hoola bronzing powder to my cheeks, forehead and chin for a more “tanned” look.

Step 3:

I love to use sugarbomb face powder as an everyday blush. It has different peach shades that blend perfectly together for a little pop of color on the cheeks.

Step 4:

Brow zings is a great kit to help you get perfect brows! Plus, it travels easy. After, I like to use the high brow glow right underneath my brow arch to highlight it.

To instantly brighten eyes, apply ooh la lift to under eye area. Apply 3 dots and tap with fingertip to blend.

I love the ultra plush lipgloss in lollibop! It’s a perfect everyday color and moisturizes my lips so much!
