Weeks ago, I attended a rather fun and whimsical make up workshop conducted by no one but the Benefit Makeup Master, Jose Rivera. Jose Rivera is no stranger to the cosmetics industry with more than 15 years under his belt. He has been called on for his talent for concerts and the Red Carpet by celebrities such as Ashanti, Amanda Bynes and Steven Tyler. So I'm glad to share with you guys 5 Make Up Tips I have learnt from Benefit Makeup Master, Jose Rivera.

5 Make Up Tips by Benefit Makeup Master, Jose Rivera


Besides sharing the make up tips, Benefit is here to introduce two newest product into their family. Lets scroll down to find out more.. :)

Benefit Make-Up Tip #1 : Prep your face

Prepping your face is certainly the most important steps of all the make-up routine. Because if you have done the prep work (like moisturizing, hydrating and etc) thoroughly, you'll be saved from the hassle of applying tones of make-up foundation to get the flawless skin texture.  Besides, this step will also reduce the need of applying excessive foundation on face which will wear off as you go and look f-ugly under the camera and spotlight.

So say hello to the new skincare by Benefit...

Benefit Instant Comeback Facial Serum

Benefit Instant Comeback Facial Serum is the new age-defying booster serum, giving an instant comeback to boost the youthful look of skin. Despite of the instant comeback, the tri-radiance complex also helps to revive tired skin, making it look plumped up and hydrated, smoother within seconds. Seeing Jose Rivera spraying the Benefit Instant Comeback Facial Serum on the model is like sprinkling pixie dust on her face, defying any sign of aging, making her look years younger.

Benefit Make-Up Tip #2 : Blusher 2 Fingers Away from Your Nose

I am not sure about you but I have serious problem in applying blusher especially not sure where to start and stop. I'll either overdo it or decided not to apply blusher at all. Well, that was only before attending Jose Rivera makeup workshop. Now I total control over the blusher application. Place two fingers on the side of your nose and only apply the blusher starting from there to your cheekbone. This you'll get the rosy check and smiley face makeup finish.

Benefit Make-Up Tip #3 : Heavy, Moderate & Light Pressure in Applying Blusher

Apply blusher in 3 different pressure on your cheekbone starting from heavy to moderate to light pressure. Put more pressure on the lower part and less pressure as you brush upwards, creating a gradient rosy cheek.

So speaking about blusher, Benefit is here to introduce their brand new cream blush aka...

Benefit Majorette Booster Blush


Benefit; Benefit Cosmetics Malaysia; beauty; skincare; make up tips; Jose Rivera; Benefit Majorette Blusher; Benefit Instant Comeback Age-Defying Facial Serum; beauty tips; make up tips; review; malaysia beauty blogger

The Benefit Majorette Booster Blush has yet to be launched in Malaysia and the perk of being a beauty blogger is that I'll get to try it on first hand before it is being launched on September 2014. The creamy texture glides on the back of my hand effortlessly. Tho the shades look pretty much like a bronzer but as I swatch it on my hand, it's actually a pink-peach shade - just what it takes to amplify our natural flush. In addition to that natural flush, the 2 key ingredients (peach & pomegranate) in Benefit Majorette Booster Blush gives a fruity peach scent lingering on your cheek as you apply it on. Yumm Yumm...

Benefit Make-Up Tip #4 : Pad Off Excessive Powder from Brush

When you are using brush to apply powder foundation, powder blusher or any powder based makeup, pad excessive powder off until you see no more powder coming off from the brush. Do this step before applying the product on your face, so that you'll not brush on excessive product on your face on the first go. This also allows you to do layering until you achieve the result you like.

Benefit Make-Up Tip #5 : Use Your Nose as Guide in Drawing the Wing Eye Makeup

Draw the eyeliner wing, by aligning the eyeliner on your nose then swift it to left and right. Do marking on both eyes before proceeding in drawing the eyeliner so you can adjust the wing's angle accordingly.

Here are some interesting shot of Benefit Makeup Master, Jose Rivera's priceless expression during the workshop, taken by yours truly.

Jose Rivera is indeed a professional makeup master and in fact a bubbly ones too. I had so much fun watching him sprinkling pixie dust and doing magic on the model's face. Best bit is definitely his interesting and lively makeup demonstration with all the priceless expression that makes everyone laugh. And this is so Benefit who believes in ....

"Laughter is the best cosmetic!"
