Benefit Cosmetics, Los Angeles Pop Up

Case Studies

When Benefit Cosmetics launched two of their highly anticipated makeup products, they went all out! After taking over the Johnny Rockets on Melrose, they covered it in pink and turned it into a 50's style diner. After that, our client needed a team of promotional models and brand ambassadors with some unique characteristics to run the show. Most importantly, they needed to be makeup artists. Secondly, they needed to be able to roller skate. Lastly, they needed the look and personality to align with the Benefit Cosmetics brand. Featured in Los Angeles news outlets and makeup blogs, it's safe to say the pop up was a huge success!
