Having Fun with Benefit Celebutante and Powderazzi: A Quick Tutorial

Published in: Makeup Tips/How To

Heya, ladies. A few days ago I discovered the benefits of Benefit’s holiday kits in Celebutante and Powderazzi.


Tonight I thought I’d revisit that post, adding an eye map and a breakdown of the steps I followed.

It’s an easy shimmery pewter eye/plum lip combo, and you won’t need an arsenal of tools (just fingers and a couple eye brushes) or time spent blending. I can see myself wearing this on rushed mornings when I “accidentally” hit the snooze button one too many times (oops!). ๐Ÿ™‚



Products I used



  1. Begin by patting Creaseless Cream Shadow in Skinny Jeans on your lids with a synthetic brush like the MAC 239 Eye Shader.
  2. Also using the edge of the same brush, line your lower lash lines with Skinny Jeans.
  3. Next, grab the Powderazzi kit, and sweep Hoola bronzing powder into the crease with a fluffy brush like the MAC 217. Blend away any harsh edges with a windshield wiper motion.
  4. Still with the 217, dust Velvet Eyeshadow in Leggy (from the Celebutante kit) beneath your brow bone.
  5. Emphasize those eyes by lining both your upper and lower waterlines and lashlines with BADgal Waterproof Liner.

Finish the eye portion of the look by curling your lashes and applying two coats of BADgal Waterproof Mascara (on both the tops and bottoms)

  1. Apply three or four drops of Benetint liquid blush (from the Celebutante kit) to the apples of your cheeks and blend with your fingers.
  2. Get glowy by dotting two dots of High Beam (also from the Celebutante kit) on your upper cheek bones, nose and chin, again, blending with your fingers.


  1. Grab Full Finish Lipstick in No Competition from the Celebutante kit, and apply one layer, blotting with a tissue.
  2. For extra shimmer and shine, add one layer of Lipgloss in I’m With the Band.

BING-BANG-BOOM! All done. ๐Ÿ™‚

    I like Hoola, it is a nice bronzer without shimmer, which is good for everyday.

    Loving the look!
    I have tried to just slightly dot the No Competition lippie on my lips, and it looks lovely, but I also love the idea of full coverage plum lips and I simply cannot pull it off. And then I just look at the lippie and think to myself: it’s not you – it’s me! Oh well. But I guess I should get the Skinny Jeans cream shadow, it looks fab!
