The legendary range no make up bag should be without

Every make up maven worth their brushes has some Benefit within their kit. Creators of the UK’s best-loved brow range, we’ve cherry-picked an edit of their most iconic products for your delectation. From {They’re Real} to {High Beam}, we’ve curated a collection of the best-loved, tried-and-tested staples of your cosmetic collection, so whether you’re brand new to {Benefit} (for shame!), or fuelling an enduring {Gimme Brow} obsession, here are the ultimate icons…

There’s bronzer and then there’s {Hoola} – the perfect, olive-toned powder that lends skin a subtle, sunkissed lustre (without any give-away glitter). Completely matte for a convincing veil of colour, this multi award-winning pot is a permanent feature of every make up mavens go-to kit – warming pale, sun-starved visages or creating realistic definition. It’s the easiest way to fake a flawless (sunless) tan.

Got blots on an otherwise faultless complexion? Call {The POREfessional}! Benefit’s silky, priming potion has a featherweight crème texture and a translucent (shine-minimising) finish to disguise the visibility of pores and soften the appearance of fine lines. Completely oil-free with a cocktail of protective antioxidants, this wards against the everyday environmental stress while extending your foundation’s longevity.

The UK’s #1 mascara (no mean feat!), {They’re Real!} grants such Bambi-worthy lashes that your friends will do a double-take. Falsies? No. Extensions? No. This magic wand lends formidable flutter with just a quick coat – there’s nothing faux about this baby’s lash-enhancing claims. Jet black with an innovative, catch-all brush, this wraps each hair with luscious, glossy pigment for a breeze-inducing blink.

The original glow-giving liquid, Benefit’s {High Beam} creates a model-worthy glint for ‘cut glass’ cheekbones, lifted brow bones and a cute-sy cupid’s bow. A pearly, pale pink shimmer, a few spots blurred with fingertips will grant an ethereal gleam to lacklustre complexions – scattering the light for a fresh, strobe-lit finish.

Amplify sparse arches with bestselling {Gimme Brow} – the innovative, oomph-boosting gel that adds hold (and volume) without stiffness or stickiness. Firm yet flexible, this tinted formula disguises any pluck-ups and transforms sad, patchy eyebrows into enviable, Audrey-esque face framers. Quick, convenient and totally foolproof, it’s consistently top of the beauty pops!
