Sometimes I am asked what kind of makeup I wear. Truth is, I switch it around a lot but I do have a few staples. One of those is Benetint. This cheek stain is perfect for every complexion. A product originally used for strippers to make other areas more, ahem, “rosey”, Benetint is A) easy to apply and B) a great addition to a quick makeup routine. I have a pretty pale, boring skin tone. I always feel like I need some color. I just do 2 Xs of Benetint on my cheeks and BAM…instant color. I also use it as lip tint when I want some more color there. Then just put on chapstick or gloss.
Now you may say “WHOA that shiz is expensive, B!” and to that I say…yes..BUT it lasts for a LONG time. I wouldn’t be overstating to say you might could go a year with 1 bottle. Especially if you don’t use it everyday. I think I have bought 2 bottles…ever. And I was introduced to it before my wedding in 2005!
Now I am planning to have a makeup vlog at some point when I have time but I did find this lovely Brit giving a tutorial on how to apply it...so enjoy!
I also recommend Benefit as a cosmetic line. I love a lot of their stuff…I just can’t pay department store prices all the time. A few other staples I keep by them are High Beam, Dandelion and plum mascara (i’m out…and poor).
See..this was a Benefit counter creation. Love them so much I went to the mall ON MY WEDDING DAY to get them to do it.
