Double The Beauty Double The Fun- @BenefitCosmetics X @Birchbox Wing Women Weekend #BeautyBash
The Pink Girl Crew aka Wing Women
You may or may not have known that this past weekend (September 26-28) was the first ever National Wing Women Weekend, where women across the country get to glam up and wing out with their favorite ladies and beauty goodies. Benefit Cosmetics and Birchbox teamed up and put together the ultimate party in a box. At first only a 1,000 ladies would be picked to host their own #BeautyBash parties. For being a procrastinator I was not a part of that first 1,000 picked but it was in the cards for me to host my very own #BeautyBash because Benefit Cosmetics was generous enough to open the contest to 500 more gals in which I became one of the lucky Benebabes to have the honors of putting together a fun filled afternoon.
Bragging about all the Benefit products
Everything about planning something gets me excited and stressed out at the same time. It’s my favorite thing to do but also can end up having so many layers factored in. The challenge here was to host a party for your 5 Wing Women; who for me there is no doubt who those women are, unfortunately each of them unavailable with their oh so fabulous schedules. For me this almost meant no party at all.

After nearly canceling altogether I reached out to fellow Blogger Babe Suzy of Suzy’s Closet who was also a winner and just as stressed as I was trying to plan the perfect #BeautyBash. So we merged to create a Double Beauty Bash, probably the only one of its kind where our guest were treated to cotton candy drinks we named The Beauty Basher who fellow Wing Woman Jennie prepared, Pretty in Pink manis by moi, and some tasty sweets and treats including cake, cheese platters, a delicious hummus made by Wing Woman Kiara, with a side of They’re Real Push Up Liner and They’re Real Mascara. After all this was an ode to the Winged Eye that instantly makes every girl FIERCE! Ever heard the saying, “Don’t ask a woman with a winged eye why they’re late,” Yea and so we had an afternoon of fun perfecting ours.

Sweet Treats and Eats
We introduced ourselves and the reason for the party and of course everyone agreed it was valid to celebrate. And so the games began. We played WING-O our beauty version of the classic BING-O game and WIN-G It!, where our Wing Women using the They’re Real Push Up Liner competed for best winged eye look. Using the super cool #BeautyBash Lash Flasher each girl captured their look. (Thanks Suzy’s Sister, Brilliant idea) Some of our Wing Women were impressed themselves with their awesome attempts. The winner which was so hard to choose got her very own full sized They’re Real Push Up Liner. Hula for a Hoola an amazing bronzer also by Benefit was another game we played where Wing Women try to beat best time for a Hoola of their own to keep and have glowing skin to last a lifetime. The photo station adorned with props was the perfect selfie lover’s dream. And let me tell you it was a hotspot indeed. Makeup, Mirrors and Music was all the inspiration needed to capture your best flicks.

We shared laughs, made new friends, basked in cotton candy drinks and great conversation. An afternoon perfected indeed. Definitely looking forward to many Wing Woman Weekends to come. Bring on the Beauty Bash planning! Thank you Benefit Cosmetics and Birchbox for a memorable first Wing Women Weekend XOXO
