If you’ve never tried Benefit Makeup before then sit back because I’m going to break down the absolute must-have products you need. Benefit makeup is a brand I have loved since I was a teen. A brand that I have grown with instead of out of. It has always been top of my Christmas wish list.
After one or two times of my husband getting it wrong. He’s now fully trained and thankfully gets me a selection of my Benefit makeup, must-haves every year.
You can’t miss the pretty pink stand in the middle of the beauty department with. It’s retro, quirky style and beautifully made-up staff. The customer service is always outstanding. Whenever I go in and chat with girls, I always end up with so many more tips & tricks. I had to share the absolute must-have products (that I personally use) with you all.

Hoola Bronzing Powder
If you have used Benefit Makeup before then this won’t come as a surprise that the first product I bought was Hoola Bronzing Powder. Hoola is the go-to product for makeup artists.
The bronzer goes on your skin evenly and the colour is a natural sunkissed tan (no orangey tones here). This also comes in a mini & lite version.
Pro Tip – The bronzer comes with brush and compact mirror so perfect if you’re on the go.
If you follow my Instagram you will know that this year I’ve declared war on my pores. So far the best product I have found for covering up those annoying little dots is Professional Pore primer. This is an oil-free primer so perfect for oily skin types.
It glides easily onto your skin with a velvety finish, minimising the look of your pores. Perfect to wear under foundation or on its own.
Pro Tip – You can use this primer under makeup or over if you need a freshen up throughout the day.
Hello Happy, Flawless Foundation!
Speaking of foundations Hello Happy Flawless Foundation! gives you the perfect flawless finish. It’s super hydrating on your skin and oil-free. I use shade 3. It’s one of the smoothest foundations I’ve ever used, perfect if you prefer a full coverage foundation.
Pro Tip – For best results apply with a Makeup Sponge.
BrowZing Eyebrow Shaping Kit
This is my No1 favourite product of all time. I was using the Browzing Kit way back when it was in its original plain, black packaging. Now it’s been given a chic new update a sleek, chrome finish. The set has a wax & powder a 2 ended brow brush & tweezers.
Keep your brows perfect all day every day. I use is shade 05 Deep. I have never found anything that works as well as this and I always get compliments on my brows.
Pro Tip – Use the angled brush end to define and shape your brows then use the rounded brush end to add more depth of colour and fill in any gaps.
I’ve recently started using Gimme Brow. I love that it looks like my brows have had the Brow Lamination treatment. If you love the brow lamination look but don’t want the maintenance or cost. Then this is for you, it will keep your brows in place as well as adding colour and definition.
Pro Tip – I apply this by brushing my brows up after the Browzing kit.
Rose-Tinted Cheek & Lip Stain
The original Benetint Cheek & Lip Stain, I can remember sitting with my girlfriends on the train 10 years ago. When one of them suddenly whipped out this product and used it on her lips and cheeks. I had to try it and I’ve been using it ever since.
Pro Tip – Apply a few drops to cheeks and blend upwards along cheekbones this gives a lovely contoured finish and stops you having clown cheeks.
