New Years Makeup FT Life of the Party Benefit Tin

Hello darlings.

I really enjoyed making my Christmas makeup looks so i decided to make a little New Years Eve one. I received this Benefit tin for Christmas (Thank you dad!!) and i though it would be fun to see if i could create a look using mostly this tin. I had to add a couple of items as it didn't include any base products or anything for my eyebrows as the eye shadows have shimmer in! I also decided to add a little eyeliner because that is my go to look! I hope you enjoy :)
I first applied a light layer of the PORE Fessional as my primer to help smooth my skin and keep my makeup in place all day. The tin doesn't contain any base products so i used the L'Oeral infallible (review coming soon) in 'Porcelain' and the Revlon Colour Stay Concealer in 'light' as my base (i didn't use a powder as i didn't need one in the end and the foundation was so mattifying). I then proceeded to fill in my eyebrows with my favourite brow product, the Seventeen Brown Pencil in Natural Brown. I then applied Rockateur to my cheeks as my blush, i tried to also use it as a sort of natural contour and i also applied a tiny amount of Benetint to my cheeks to see what it was like (i think i applied too much). I used call my bluff as my eye shadow base and filled most of my lid with taupe it off, i then added a little Tease (from the Naked 2 palette) to deepen up my crease a the tin doesn't have a deep enough shade for me to do that. Applying a thin black line to my upper lash using Maybelline Master Precise Eyeliner and tight lined my waterline using the Model Co Eyeliner, i also added a little to my lower lash line too to make more of a smokey look.  I then applied a couple of coats of  the they're real mascara. To finish off the look i added a little of the benetint to my lips as a stain, i have to say i found it very drying and took it off after a couple of minutes!

Over all i really like this tin and i think the products are great quality, i think it will be really useful for travel! I've never owned anything from Benefit before, i think they are on the expensive side but i hope to try more in the future, 

I really enjoyed making this look, i'd love to know what do you think of this look? 
Also what are your favourite Benefit products? What should i try next?
