So a couple of weeks ago we had an awesome beauty bash with Benefit Cosmetics via The Butterfly Project at Starhill Gallery. The theme of the day was pink and the main event was about learning simple tips and tricks from Benefit Cosmetics to create your own individual holiday look for oncoming festive seasons.
This took place at their newly opened boutique is located above Sephora Bukit Bintang and admittedly it is quite an easy miss if you are not looking for it.
#1 Benefit Cosmetics, Starhill Gallery
|Going up to Benefit Cosmetics|
When arrived to the location, you will need to walk up at least 3 flights of stairs to get to the location so it is advisable not to wear stacked high heels when you are heading to this place.
This was a lesson well learnt when I first visited the store a month back. So this time round, thank goodness for a good and solid pair of flats :)
|The SpyGal Backdrop|
|Picture taking time!|
Upon arrival, you will see that there is a lovely 'SpyGal' pop up backdrop located opposite the store as well so if you are looking for a place to take some photos, well here would be your best chance to hop onto that opportunity :)

Balloons were generously distributed all around the floor and as the theme of the day was pink, even the chosen finger food and treats complimented the event very well in terms of the color sequence and sweetened taste.
|Lovely Assortments of Cakes, Candies and Drink|
When I was inside, I simply loved the overall look of the store for it kind of made me think that we were having a little private party in there.
What's more, all their products were neatly lined up in shelves and in cute little containers that I couldn't help thinking that if I had such an organized system like this at home with Benefit Cosmetics tables and shelves as my guide, I really would have a reason not to leave my house!

#3 Benefit Cosmetics Quick and Easy Holiday Look
So how are we going to achieve our Benefit Cosmetics Quick and Easy Holiday Look? Let's take a look with the makeup artist James who started on our model Sabrina with a clean and fresh look.
|Our model of the day; Sabrina from http://sabbyprue.blogspot.com/ :)|
|Starting the look off with a clean face|
Step 1: Prep your skin and apply your desired foundation.
Step 2: Take off the dark circles by mixing the Benefit Fake Up Concealer and the Benefit High Beam at the back of the hand. Apply the mixture to your dark circles and blend it outwards.

Step 3: Line your eyes with Benefit BADgal Waterproof Liner. Using a brush or a cotton bud, you can smudge your liner to achieve a smoother line and a more smokey detail.
Step 4: After lining your eyes, apply Benefit They're Real Mascara and push those lashes upwards to achieve a more fanned out look to frame your eyes.
|Putting on the Lip Color|
Step 5: Apply Benefit Gimme Brow and fill in the spaces in your brow. And last but not least, apply your lip color.
|The Finished Look!|
Simple right? And all it took was 15 minutes. Amazing :)
#4 Instagram Contest
|Steps 1,2 and 3|
After the makeup tutorial we participated in an Instagram Contest where we were suppose to post up our before and after Holiday look.

My Before and After Look
I found that my skin had a more glowy finish after using the Flawless Foundation.
Nonetheless I have to say that my favorite product of the day was the Benefit Cosmetics 'They Are Real' Mascara. The amount of lengthening it did to my lashes was amazing.
