Makeup Crush: Benefit Velvet shadows

January 19, 2010

The first time we fell in love with Benefit eyeshadows was when we discovered the creaseless cream shadows that are like God’s gift to girls everywhere (trust us, these eyeshadows are that amazing. Buy ‘Birthday Suit’ and ‘Stiletto’ and you won’t regret it).

The second time we fell in love with Benefit eyeshadows was when a beautiful Benefit gal here in San Francisco put a Lust Duster in Moon Doggie on our lower lash line and brightened up our whole face.

Now, we’ve fallen for a third time. Benefit’s Velvet eyeshadows glide on light as a feather and have so many rich and smooth shades you’re sure to find three or four (or more!) colors you adore.

WIT & Whimsy tip: Use a creaseless cream shadow as a base across your lid, like ‘RSVP’ or ‘Birthday Suit’ and then glide on a velvet shadow over your entire lid and up to the brow bone when using a softer color. Finish off your eyes with small dabs of ‘Jelly Roll’ Lust Duster in the inner ‘v’ of both eyes.
