Benefit Cosmetics and Marie Claire Event on the Good Ship Benefit

On Thursday 4th August 2016, I headed on board the Good Ship Benefit with my friend Kamila for an evening full of beauty and brows. Marie Claire and Benefit Cosmetics got together to offer readers an opportunity to join them for eyebrow waxes, makeup master classes, beauty treatments and shopping! 

The boat itself is really cool and one I'd definitely stop off and see if you're near the Embankment area. They do afternoon tea, dinner and cocktails, my personal choice would be cocktails on the top deck at dusk - the perfect Friday night or weekend treat.

As we were one of the first on the boat, so we headed straight to the complimentary brow waxing and shaping area, knowing that it'll be busy later on. We sat in these cute salon chairs whilst Benefit brow experts explained where our arches should be, where the brow should end and what's the best brow shape for our face. My brows were completed transformed and have made such a difference to my expression now!

After getting our brows shaped and then filled in with the famous Gimme Brow, we enjoyed a glass of prosecco or two. The bar is themed pink and has a great selection of cocktails and beverages to suit all tastes. I think this would be a great venue for a hen party or birthday!

There was also ghd doing different styles with their new pink straighteners, but we left the hairstyling as there was a massive queue already! We did sign up to win one of three pairs of the new straighteners so fingers crossed for us.... Nails Inc had an area too, but I had my Dinki Belle Nail Wraps on and didn't fancy taking them off just yet!

Next up was our Brow Masterclass with Lisa Potter-Dixon, who is Head Make Up Artist and Brow Expert for Benefit Cosmetics, alongside the Marie Claire team and their eyebrow woes. Lisa used the new Benefit eyebrow products on each person, showing how they can help with filling in gaps, shaping and covering scars. I definitely learnt a lot more about brows in this lesson than ever before!

Then it was onto the shopping.... Benefit were offering 10% off for the whole night so there was a lot to choose from! I picked up the popular Gimme Brow, after the Benefit girls used it on my brows and I couldn't believe the difference. Keep an eye out for my new brow makeup routine coming soon!

And with every event comes the goody bag! Our included a full size They're Real Mascara, a £10 Nails Inc voucher, a sticker of your choice when you purchased something and the latest Marie Claire magazine. I'll be keeping the mascara for a special occasion and checking out the Nails Inc store very soon, who can never have enough nail polishes?!
