Spoiled Pretty Teams Up With Benefit Cosmetics for Twilight-Inspired Giveaway

twilight+photo Spoiled Pretty Teams Up With Benefit Cosmetics for Twilight Inspired Giveaway
Thanks to my girl, Amber, I’m on board the Twilight train and I don’t want this wild ride to end.

I saw Twilight twice in it’s first week in the theater. I just finished Breaking Dawn, the fourth book in the series. My sister rocked my world today when she gave me Twilight: The Complete Illustrated Movie Companion for Christmas. This behind-the-scenes guide features full-color photos of the cast, locations, and sets, as well as storyboards, interviews, and much more.

As a Twilight enthusiast/beauty addict, one of the best parts of the book is an interview with Jeanne Van Phue, the movie’s head makeup artist. She talks about her love for makeup, and gives the skinny on happenings behind-the-scenes.

“With makeup you can transform someone, make them look beautiful; you can change the eyebrows and make someone’s eyes look bigger,” says Van Phue. “People don’t realize makeup may be covering a blemish or black-and-blue mark. We’re trained to make people look better, or older, or stressed out. We do all that!”

The pale makeup takes the life out of you, so I let a tiny bit of his natural skin tone come through. I made his eyes look more beautiful and put a little lip stain to make him look more appealing. Rob looks different from the others; we wanted him to stand out.”

If you’re a fan of my Twilight-inspired posts, you already know that Van Phue used Benefit’s Silky Finish Lipstick in Ms. Behavin on Robert Pattinson, who plays Edward Cullen in the film. Well, I had such a positive response to that article that I’m partnering with Benefit for a giveaway – Twilight style.

Five readers will win Benefit’s Silky Finish Lipstick in Ms. Behavin, a mulberry glaze (retail value $18). The innovative formula slides on silky smooth for the softest, sexiest lips ever. Sheer coverage with buildable color…wear as little or as luscious as you like. Lipstick glides on effortlessly with the slant tip for flawless, even coverage.

To enter, send an email to spoiledprettycontests@gmail.com. The subject line should read “Benefit Twilight Giveaway.” The contest ends at midnight (EST) on Wednesday, December 31st. Five winners will be chosen at random from among the entrants. On Thursday, January 1st, I’ll announce the winners’ names. Please, only one entry per person; duplicate entries will not increase your chances of winning. Contest is open to U.S. and Canadian residents only.

Good luck!

If Vera Wang’s romantically modern designs had a smell, it would be Look, her latest fragrance. Like her fashion, this clean, floral scent represents a measured study in texture, color, silhouette and proportion.
