Step 1Using the Benefit How To Look The Best At Everything kit, apply The Porefessional to the T-Zone to minimize pores and give the complexion a smooth, even look.
Step 2Apply the Benefit Hello Flawless Oxygen Wow Brightening Makeup with your fingers to even out the complexion and give a natural glow to the skin.
Step 3Brighten those eyes with Benefit Boi-ing- the kit offers two shades, so choose the one that works best for you or blend them together for your own custom shade!
Step 4Set the complexion with a light application of Benefit Hello Flawless Powder with the included brush to lock it in place! Apply it to your eyelids too for a nude eyeshadow.
Step 5Apply Benefit Magic Ink Liquid Eyeliner to the upper lashline, creating a dramatic cat-eye for that retro-chic look!
Step 6Curl your lashes and apply a few coats of Benefit They're Real mascara to both upper and lower lashes.
Step 7For an extra flirty look, apply Benefit False Eyelashes in Angel Lash- these give a natural look that really makes the eyes pop!
Step 8Sweep the Benefit Fine One One along the cheekbones with the highlighter side closest to the eyes. Blend out gently with a finger for an instant glow.
Step 9For a rosy, kiss-proof pout, apply Benefit Benetint to the lips. Apply 2-3 layers for a light hint of color, or keep building until you reach your desired shade.
Step 10Add a layer of clear lipgloss like the Benefit Ultra Plush Lipgloss in Icebreaker. Your lips will look luscious and juicy, but no color will transfer when you kiss your Valentine
Benefit has always been about fun, flirty and feminine makeup… which is always appropriate for date night, but especially for Valentine’s Day! This look is effortless yet polished- a retro chic look with a modern twist. My favorite part? Using Benetint on the lips instead of a red lipstick! It gives a gorgeous, rosy tint… but it stays on all night (no matter how many kisses you give)! Applying a clear gloss on top gives a juicy, lacquered look to your lips, but without the mess, smudging and fading.
