Beauty Insider: Benefit They’re Real in Full Colour

Benefit Full Colour Mascaras

I’m a big fan of a pop of colour when it comes to liner and lashes, and I blame Cara Delevingne. Every few seasons my lady crush opens a fashion week with electric blue lashes or a swatch of bright purple liner and I’m hooked.

In recent months I’ve been very much converted and have moved away from using my MAC paint pots solely as a shadow base but instead am now embracing the cream shadow in all its gooey glory! … [Read more...]
