The magic of brows - with Benefit cosmetics

A few weeks ago I was invited to this quite fabulous blogger event, and yes, you guessed it right...
- it was all about eyebrows!

 But is it possible to focus a whole event on just eyebrows, I hear you ask?
Well, when it's no one else that Benefit cosmetics hosting the day, then the answer is HELL YES!

 As usual with blogger events we were all greeted with some bubbly on arrival.
Whilst sipping our delicious drinks, the girls from Benefit went through a short presentation about the new eyebrow products that were still due to get launched to the highstreet.
Did you know that eyebrow products are currently the most bought product out there when it comes to makeup?
It's even more popular than mascara!
But who can blame us consumers when we've got strong-browed role models like Cara Delevingne to look up to?

 After the presentation we were shown into another room where 3 makeup stations were set up, and the Benefit girls started working their magic, transforming everyone's eyebrows with the products from the new collection.

 My partner in crime for the day, Jennie from Lifestyled by Jennie, seemed very happy with the result!
 There was a third, secret room at the event venue, and in there it was all fun and games!
Jennie and I were the first ones in, and the first challenge was to match eyebrows to celebrity faces.
It was a lot harder than it looks, especially when the clock was ticking down!

 Challenge number 2 was to draw a pair of eyebrows on a vintage cartoon lady - blindfolded!
I think we did a decent job though...
Challenge number 3 and 4 involved shaving a poor guy's hairy leg in a straight line (Ouch! I hope he got a hell of a good compensation for enduring that!), and decorating a slice of cake into an eyebrow.
Silly little games, but we had so much fun!

 A couple of weeks after the event, this amazing box of all the still not launched products landed in my post box.

 I really couldn't wait to try the Gimme Brow fibres, and it's now my favourite eyebrow prduct. Best one I've ever had!

 Thank you so much to Benefit cosmetics for an amazing event and for the generous box of goodies.
