The Benefit University Tour hits QUB

I'm a proud Queen's University Belfast girl. I'm in my final term of my Politics degree so I'm both excited and nervous. Today I took some time out of my very busy study schedule to hang out with lots of lovely Benefit ladies for a great cause. Benefit is a great make-up brand and they love to try and give back so they teamed up with Women's Aid Ireland for a university tour around Ireland. Their final stop was Queen's University so they parked up the pink Benebus bus outside our Student's Union and set to work. The bus is so cute- like an ice-cream van that you can get your brows done in! I had my brows and makeup done which was my first time having both done by some Benebabes. Megan (who did my makeup and is based in the Debenhams Benefit) put some eyeliner on my top lashes which I NEVER wear but it made me fall in love a bit! After my little make-over, I took to the streets with a megaphone to "encourage" (ok, I might have shouted "Hey good looking" at more than one boy...) to promote what we were doing. Make-up, brows and cut price makeup items were all on the menu and ALL the profits were going to Women's Aid.

In the evening, there was a little "party" up in The Space of the QUB Student Union. More makeup and brows only with champagne & cupcakes from Life is Sweet and our good friend The Lily Pink Bakery, a quiz (our team The Bella Bambas won!) and lots of good girly chat along with some advice from Women's Aid.

Well done to the team at Benefit for a fantastic event for a great cause. A special well done to Caoimhe- what a trooper!
