Benefit Makeup: Our Top Three Summer Heroes

Benefit makeup is always a go-to in the summer – with their melt-proof formulas and bright colours it’s no wonder they are a solid fixture in our beach beauty bags. That’s why we’re sharing a couple of our favourite Benefit beauty buys, so you’ll know how to stay looking sizzling throughout the summer.

Benefit’s new Stay Flawless Primer, £24.50, is the ultimate makeup magnet. It keeps foundation from sliding off your face for a whopping 15 hours! We’ve all been there – your makeup is flawless when you step out of the house in the morning, then come 3pm it’s all but disappeared! Well, here at LOOK HQ, we’re sick off post-lunch touch-ups which is why this primer will be our go-to this season. Plus it’s perfect on holiday because it’ll keep your makeup from sweating off.

Now, we all want thick Bambi lashes, right? Well if, like us, you didn’t win the genetic lottery when it came to naturally long lashes, then it’s time to meet your new best friend. Enter Benefit‘s They’re Real Mascara, £19.50. It’s no wonder this lash loader is the UK’s number 1 best-selling mascara – a couple of coats can transfrom barely-there lashes into a full-throttle flutter, it’s genius!

Finally, you can’t go on holiday without a gorgeous coral pink blusher in your makeup bag. We’re seriously loving Benefit‘s Fine-One-One, £23.50 – the cream blusher stick is made up of three layers, including a pink, coral and a shimmer highlighter. So it’s perfect for sculpting those cheekbones whilst giving a pretty colour pop. We love wearing it on our lips too, for a double colour hit.

So that’s our summer makeup sorted, now let’s keep our fingers and toes crossed that we get some sunshine soon!
