This October, Benefit Cosmetics – the brand that brought you the first women’s only World Cup Pub, Gabbi’s Head, and the iconic brows and beauty drive-thru, GlastonBrow – transports you back in time via a dazzling seventies disco! Introducing Studio ’76: a brows, beauty and entertainment destination offering a blast from the (glamorous) past.

As the number one eyebrow brand in the UK, Studio ’76 will pay homage to all things browsIt’s open for two days from Friday 20th October, and based in The Old Truman Brewery, East London. Following the London pit stop, the glamorous party destination will travel north to Liverpool, where brow-divas can be glammed up ahead of any occasion. With two rooms of fun and pampering it’s all about the 70s glamour this autumn.

Upon arriving, guests will step through a magical wardrobe where seventies-inspired cocktails will be on hand to get the glamorous party started.  Here, guests will be treated to either a brow treatment or Bene-makeupper, compliments of Benefit Cosmetics.

It doesn’t end there! Once party-goers are glammed up the glitzy nightclub will be revealed, allowing Benebabes and their gal pals to dance the night away. With Gimme Brow samples being handed out throughout the night to anyone who completes secret missions set by Benefit, they’ll be no excuse for less than perfect brows!

Tickets can be purchased from the below link for £12.50: https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/o/benefit-cosmetics-10876509321

Group bookings are limited to a maximum of 10.

Benefit Curl Bar LondonTo celebrate the launch of its revolutionary new mascara, Roller Lash, iconic beauty brand Benefit Cosmetics is launching a vibrant three-storey curl and cocktail bar, ‘Curl’s Best Friend’.

The pop-up bar will be a place for girls to celebrate the power of curls, the ultimate destination to let their hair down and ooze girliness, with a scrumptious menu of cocktails and cupcakes to choose from!

Open for one month only from 27th February 2015, girls can re-live 1950s beauty parlour indulgence and enjoy three theatrical floors of fun, glamour and pampering.  From eyelashes to hair, it’s all about embracing the curl:

Ground Floor: Enter the world of Roller Lash and head to the bar for a delicious signature cocktail and cupcake, then relax in Benefit’s lush vintage chairs for a gossip with the girls. Guests will also be able to try the new Roller Lash mascara; with its hook ‘n’ roll brush that grabs, separates, lifts and curls lashes, girls will be striking their prettiest pose.

Floor One: Head upstairs to the beauty parlour and curl station and receive a make upper or brow wax and tint from Benefit’s make-up and brow experts, or a voluminous, curly faux-blow* from the resident hair-styling professionals.

Floor Two (the secret floor!): As night falls and the lights dim, the bar will unveil a hidden secret, a place for girls to be fun and fearless. Climb the stairs and you may stumble across a secret door with a shadowy figure… it’s time to crank up the volume and become bold and beautiful in the Noir Bar, based on Benefit’s best-selling mascara they’re real! Open from 7pm each evening, the Noir Bar will be serving delicious, sultry cocktails.

image002The brand new ‘Curl’s Best Friend by Benefit’ mobile app enables girls to book in beauty and faux-blow services, reserve bar tables, share photos and browse live newsfeeds at their fingertips. The app is available for free download from the Apple App Store and Android Play Store. Girls outside of London can still try the new Roller Lash mascara with a requisite serving of cupcakes and cocktails, in Benefit’s ‘Curls Best Friend’ tour parlour. From 17th April 2015 Benefit will be going on the road - tour dates to follow!

Warwick-CastleThe Luna Cinema has announced the UK's largest season of open-air cinema this summer supported by Benefit Cosmetics.

With over seventy screenings of classic films on giant screens across the country, from Royal palaces and medieval castles, to racecourses, famous London parks and even an open-air swimming pool, it promises to be an unforgettable summer of cinema under the stars.  Helping to create the ultimate entertainment experience, Benefit will be on hand to provide complimentary makeovers giving guests screen-siren looks as well as hosting VIP areas alongside giveaways of some of their iconic beauty products – there will even be the chance to walk the pink carpet!

Screenings include 80’s classics such as Top Gun at Kew Gardens, Dirty Dancing at Ascot Racecourse, and Back To The Future at Greenwich Park (on the meridian line), through to classics such as Breakfast At Tiffany's at Kensington Palace, The Birds at Opera Holland Park and a special 50th anniversary screening of Goldfinger at Regent's Park Open Air Theatre.

The line-up also includes some of this year's biggest films including The Wolf Of Wall Street at Hatfield House, Captain Phillips at Hampton Court Palace and Gravity at Kew Gardens, Greenwich Park and Warwick Castle.  Those looking for something a little different can opt for a VIP experience at Brockwell Lido and watch Jaws from an inflatable dingy on the water!  The public can choose which films they’d like to be shown at One New Change, St Paul’s and Brockwell Lido by casting their vote at thelunacinema.com.

Benefit Cosmetics Managing Directors, Ian Marshall & Gail Bojarski said This summer we are excited to be teaming up with Luna Cinema and being able to give guests the best outdoor cinema screening experience yet – we’ve got a few surprises up our sleeves!

“We love the synergy between Luna and Benefit, it’s about hanging out with friends, having a giggle (even if the film itself is scary) and ultimately enjoying yourself. Plenty of iconic ‘looks’ have been inspired by cinema – think Audrey’s eyeliner flicks, or Marilyn’s pout and we all like to wonder ‘what if it was me’ in that dress, kissing Leo or driving into the sunset. Sitting on a blanket at the Luna cinema gives you a screen siren moment with Benefit adding the glamour – we are the perfect partners-in-pictures!”

As always there will be a full bar and delicious food at each screening; and you’re welcome to bring your own picnic at selected venues – check the website for details.
