Hey Benebabes, it's your favorite gal-about-town reporting to you on the latest & greatest parties around NYC! Benefit Cosmetics celebrated the opening of the Benefit Boutique SoHo, our flagship boutique in NYC and the ultimate hotspot for on-the-spot “make-uppers,” tips & tricks and our famous fun instant beauty solutions! The new flagship is literally a girly wonderland (that you never want to leave!). With eight mirrored vanities for brow shaping, two pretty rooms for body waxing, and one room for airbrush spray tanning, you can't help but smile the moment you walk in and want to sing at the top of your lungs "I feel pretty". It's like, makeup heaven!
Two days ago a my hubbie came home with a sports accident. The end result, a big ol' fashioned black eye. I decided to work my Benefit magic and use the essential tools for flawless coverage (and believe me, for all those guys and gals that are prone to sporting accidents and bruise like a peach, listen up).
Meet my bestie Stacy. She has her engagement photos in an hour and needs a quick make-upper before the photographer get's to her apartment. WOW-zer! Media Darling (that's me!) to the rescue. I reach for my emergency makeup-bag with just the essentials to get Stacy picture-perfect!
Here's what I bring to make that transition from in-flight geek to office savvy chic: 1.White tailored trench to keep my look fresh and bright. 2.Dark stretch jeans that are super cozy on the plane but appear tres professional in the office. 3.Gray detailed scarf to accessorize my look. 4.A whole lotta ooh la lift to make my tired eyes appear as if I caught up on my zzzz'z. 5. Benetint lip balm that I quickly dot on my lips and cheeks to give me an instant healthy glow. It's slight sheen gives my skin a dewy-glow! Does anyone have any other in-flight beauty tips to add on to my list?
No wonder they call NYC the city that never sleeps…once you get settled in one space, your bound to pick up and move again to a new location. I’m liking my new zip code and loving even more my new benefitized desk and product closet [...]
For the 4th of July, my family took a champagne cruise around NY Harbor. It was really cool. While admiring "Lady Liberty" from a far, I couldn’t take my eyes of Lady Lana (my sis!) sitting right across from me. She was so boat-chic. "Its all about playing with brights and keeping it casually comfortable." She wore yellow stretch jeans, a tailored denim blazer to keep within the nautical theme and a chunky necklace and fedora to keep her look stylish and fun!
Remember the glory days of paint-by-number, when instructions were crystal clear and you always ended up with a masterpiece. If you’re a gal (like me) who wished putting on makeup was just as easy, and are hopeful that one day there will be a makeup for dummies club in your community, then look no further.
