Female (Malaysia) - - BEAUTY INSIDER -

What made you say yes to such an

iconic brand? “I mean, come on! Ben­e­fit is iconic for a rea­son. The prod­ucts are very com­pat­i­ble with my skin and don’t ir­ri­tate or cause break­outs. I love how the pack­ag­ing isn’t only unique but also in­ter­est­ing. It’s def­i­nitely worth ev­ery sen!”

When did you start play­ing with makeup and what was the first prod­uct you pur­chased?

“I started play­ing with makeup ever since I was seven! My first makeup prod­uct was a con­cealer.

I still re­mem­ber how in­se­cure I was be­cause of my heavy dark cir­cles and I’d find ways to cover them up. Never un­der­es­ti­mate the power of a small prod­uct. My cur­rent ob­ses­sion is the Boi-ing Airbrush Con­cealer!”

So what’s your all-time favourite

Ben­e­fit prod­uct? “It’s so hard to pick just one! I can’t leave the house with­out putting th­ese on: the Goof Proof Brow Pen­cil, POREfes­sional PRO Balm and Gal­i­for­nia Blush. Th­ese are my holy grail prod­ucts.”

Why do you think brows are the most im­por­tant part of the face? “Eye­brows can make your eyes pop. They frame the face; pro­por­tion­ing it out, cre­at­ing per­fect sym­me­tries and what’s bet­ter, they lift your eyes too.”

Out of the four dif­fer­ent brow styles from Ben­e­fit, which is your favourite and why? “I per­son­ally love the bold and an­gu­lar style. It’s trend­ing on the run­ways and I love it cos it de­fines my en­tire look with makeup on.” Have you ever had a hor­ri­ble eye­brow job? How did you sal­vage it?

“Oh God, yes! I’m pretty sure ev­ery­one has en­coun­tered a hor­ri­ble brow job at least once in their life­time. What

I did was to let the brows grow out and get them re­shaped by a pro­fes­sional. The Browvo Con­di­tion­ing Primer def­i­nitely helped my brows grow thicker and fuller.”

What’s your No. 1 beauty trend? “Nat­u­ral beauty! Not com­pletely barefaced, but very light makeup to en­hance my fea­tures and avoid look­ing dull. In ad­di­tion, you can get away with lit­tle to no makeup if your brows are shaped prop­erly!”
