Not only do I feel like I genuinely earned my role here at Benefit, but I also know that the past year I spent working extremely hard on videos, social media and graphics paid off. I was almost under the opinion that no matter how hard I worked or how much of a committed perfectionist I was, I was never going to get a break. That makes me all the more proud that I got this far!
Now, naturally, I’m probably a bit more of a Tomboy, than a girly girl. It’s all a bit messy; I love clothes, make up, accessories…. but I adore computer games, rude jokes and lots of technical IT stuff. Maybe I have the balance just right, who knows! What I do know though, is that before I started purchasing Benefit products, I was pretty clueless about makeup.
I knew the basics. But as for understanding and using Primers, Concealers, Highlighters…. I was pretty out of the loop. Now, thanks to the brilliant girls at my local counter in Essex, and my (somewhat unhealthy) obsession with Benefit products, I know so much more than I did.
It’s great knowing I’m working at a company that I respect and that makes products I genuinely love. I really love coming to work in the morning, knowing I get to tweet, post and answer questions about anything and everything Benefit! Even though it’s only been 4 days, I feel like one of the Benefit-family and I can’t wait to learn more and do more.
Okay, 5:29pm, I’ll quite drooling over my job. I’m outta here!
