There are so many amazing make-up brands out there and it is important to find the right brands for you. As a beauty blogger, my passion is trying out new brands and products then telling you guys how they are. Over the next few weeks…ok maybe months, I will be choosing some of my favourite brands and telling you my must-have products from those brands.
Benefit make-up brings fun and a quirky edge to beauty, I love the humour behind the brand that do not take themselves too seriously. Here are my top hero products for Benefit make-up ♥
Stating with the iconic Porefessional, you would have seen this in my May beauty favourites. There are many primers around, but this is definitely one of the best! I love how silky it feels on your skin and preps the skin for any make-up. It gives you a very smooth complexion by minimising the appearance of pores (hence the name!) and fine lines. It is a light-weight oil-free formula which is suitable for all skin tones. Once you feel the silkyness of this product you will be hooked! Shop now at Debenhams, feel unique or ASOS for £24.50.
What they say about Sunbeam is true, it really is like liquid sunshine in a bottle! For me, this is a great highlighter as it has a bronze tone which I love. It gives a sun-kissed glow but still very natural looking. A little goes a long way with this little beauty and I love mixing it in with my moisturiser in the summer for some added glow. Shop now at Debenhams, ASOS and feel unique for £19.50.
The They’re Real mascara is one of the best-selling mascaras at the moment, it lengthens, curls, lifts, separates and adds volume all at the same time! Look how much this mascara has achieved in such a short time;

For daily use I prefer to use a tinted moisturiser or BB cream, giving slight coverage, a healthy glow a break from heavy make-up. One of my favourite tinted moisturisers has to be the YouRebel lite, it gives light coverage and moisture, most importantly it still has SPF protection. It is definitely a must-have Benefit product, shop at Debenhams, ASOS and feel unique for £24.50.
Dallas has been featured in many of my past posts so you all know I love it! It’s great for giving that subtle bronzed colour to your cheeks with a tiny hint of shimmer. It looks so natural and works great with Sunbeam. It was even featured in my post of top 5 blushers of all time so it s definitely worth a try. Shop now at Debenhams, ASOS and feel unique for £23.50.
Benefit’s newcomer is the amazing Porefessional in a powder form, The Porefessional: agent zero shine. I haven’t tried this yet but have had a good look at a Benefit counter and it feels fabulous, obviously as it is the same silky formula but in a powder form combatting shine like no other. I’m sure it will end up being another must-have Benefit product.
