A romantic autumnal look from our friends at Benefit...
AW15 - a look that's pure romance:
Stained lips in berry hues are a key look this season - complemented by clean, radiant skin and flushed cheeks. We saw ripe berry on the AW15 catwalks at Dolce & Gabbana, Caolina Herrera and Philip Lim, deep burgundy and ox blood at Marc Jacobs. An autumnal berry lip can really transform an outfit and what's better is it's a really easy look to achieve.
Benefit's Head Makeup and Trend Artist (and brow expert), Lisa Potter Dixon, recommends autumn beauty pick Benetint to achieve that perfect flush of colour on your cheeks & lips - "Benetint is always in my make up kit. It's long wearing and even kiss proof and cocktail proof, meaning you can be confident your pop of colour will stay put from desk to dance floor. Benetint is a true icon of the make up world. 40 years of ladies loving it proves this!"
A lip and cheek stain that was originally created for an exotic dancer in the 1970s, benetint has soared to cult fave status because of its naturally sheer and sexy flush. It's great for long, rainy days because once you've got it on, you don't need a touch up. And you can apply your favorite lipstick or gloss on top to enhance the color.
Here's how to use it:
Step 1: Sweep benetint onto the cheeks, starting from the apple upwards. TIP: start with less and build the color, you can always add but subtracting can be difficult.
Step 2: Using your pointer and middle finger blend in an upward circular motion. TIP: always use your pointer and middle finger with applying makeup, they are the most delicate fingers and will ensure you have a gentle touch when you apply to skin.
Step 3: Layer until you have your desired shade.
Step 4: Sweep on lips & blend. TIP: Wear benetint under your favourite lipstick or lip gloss to amp up the staying power of your lip colour.
