AMW Makeover: Get the Look with Benefit Cosmetics (Holiday Edition) + Giveaway

Congratulations Jan Ellaine Sy !

Happy Monday AMW Friends!
Christmas parties, gatherings are probably filling up your calendar!  I know this is the busiest time of the month and I'm sure aside from worrying about your wardrobe, you also worry about the makeup looks you would want to sport!  

Do you need ideas?  Well, I'm here for you!  I recently collaborated with Benefit Cosmetics Philippines to create 2 simple looks perfect for the holidays! 


And the best part?  After getting tips from me and Benefit, you also can get the chance to win a Groovy Kind-a love! kit. 





Get the Look: All Aboard Beauty
This look is a perfect daily look, for girls who prefers simple makeup.

Step 1:
I used Benefit POREfessional to minimize the appearance of pores and lines.  This is my favorite balm to use on my bridal clients!


Step 2:
I defined Patty's brows using Brow Zings, I use the wax portion first for the hairs to stay in place and fill in her brows with medium colored brow powder.


Step 3:
You can choose to use an eyeshadow base like Stay Don't Stray but since Patty do not suffer from oily lids, I went ahead and used Creaseless Cream Eyeshadow in R.S.V.P. all over lid and used the Easiest Nudes Ever Eyeshadow Kit.



Step 4:
I picked world famous Benetint to create a natural flush on the apples of Patty's cheeks and highlighted the rest of her face with High Beam.


Step 5: 
I personally picked Ultra Plush Lip Gloss in Lollibop as this color would work so well on Patty's complexion.


All Aboard Beauty


Get the Look: Holiday Glam
 This look is perfect from office to parties.  This Holiday Glam look can also be worn by girls who are comfortable with makeup! :)

Step 1:
Using Hello Flawless Oxygen Wow in Toasted Beige, I applied a good amount all over Patty's face concentrating more at the center of her face and blending the rest of the foundation out with a downward strokes.

Step 2:
The best part about Benefit's Creaseless cream is the fact that I can pile this on top of an existing eyeshadow.  That's what I did to change from day to night time eye makeup look.  I used my favorite Holy Smokes! and applied all over Patty's lids.


Step 3:
With a brush, I layered Longwear Powder Shadow concentrating at the center of the lids with patting motion for an extra "Shine" / "glow"!


Step 4:
Pile on They're Real Mascara. 


Step 5:
Apply RockateurPowder and sweet from the cheek bones and blend outward to the hair line for an instant glow and contour!


Step 6:
I immediately picked my favorite Dare Me Hydra-Smooth Lipl Color!  This is my favorite red shade for girls who aren't comfortable wearing red just like Patty!
