HOW MUCH IS MY FACE WORTH: SUMMER EDITION

Wednesday, 27 July 2016


I love doing these How much is my face worth little posts, I think they're a really fun way of showing everyone what you're loving/wearing at the moment and it's also so interesting to see how much your face is actually worth! So today's one is a summer edition. I've been going for a more light base and not really wearing much on my face because of how hot it's been.

BENEFIT COSMETICS INTERVIEW

Monday, 18 July 2016



So today I somehow managed to get myself an interview at Benefit Cosmetics, I won't lie I was absolutely bricking it purely because I spent way too much time on the internet reading horror stories. I was shaking so badly walking in there, but I really had nothing to worry about.

The first stage of the interview was just a quick chat with the store manager, she asked questions like why I wanted to work at Benefit, times I've given good customer service, a time when I've dealt with a sensitive situation and when I've worked as part of a team.

Once I'd passed that stage I was asked to come back a couple hours later for my 'audition.' This part of the interview is where most people struggle. You have to go out onto the shop floor and basically grab customers to give them a free mini makeover. There were 4 of us at the audition so it was a pretty nice amount and the other girls were lovely!

The store manager went through all of the products and told us abit about the best sellers so that we could pass that knowledge onto customers. We then had to set up our station with all of our brushes and disposable wands and cleaning products. Once we'd got our stations set up we were set free, I literally got my first customer within seconds, I turned around and she was there so I grabbed her and did her makeup.

I did struggle getting my second customer, I was wondering around the entire store for a fair while before I got my second customer. You do have to be able to accept being told no or sometimes people being rude to you (luckily no one was today) but that is like that with any sales job. I've done cold calling before and people have far more balls to be rude over the phone than face to face so to be honest it's nothing I can't handle. 

We all had just over an hour to get 3 people to come get their makeup done which we all managed to do. I think the reason there are so many horror stories about the interview process at Benefit is because a lot of people aren't up for hardcore sales- Benefit is more of a sales environment than other counters and that's just the way it is. Once you've got over the first customer you can easily get others.

I really enjoyed my interview and it was lovely to just spend a day surrounded by lovely girls and makeup! I'll find out whether I got the job by the end of next week so hopefully! Either way I had a blast!

AVEENO DAILY MOISTURISER AS A PRIMER?

Saturday, 16 July 2016


Okay so when I first saw that people had been using this as a primer whilst reading a Buzzfeed atricle I was hesitant to believe it. So I did some digging myself and found that people have been using this as a primer for a good few years, this is because it's active ingredient is Dimethicone which is found in a lot of smoothing primers (like the Smashbox photo finish primer) 

WHAT DOES MY BOYFRIEND THINK MAKEUP IS? TAG

I've seen this tag on a few people's blog and thought it would be hilarious to see what Hayden thought makeup was, it turned out he was better than I expected but he still came out with some corkers.. I tag everyone to ask their boyfriend/girlfriend/bestfriend/mum/dad/nanny etc anyone and link me to the post when you're done!
