After 2 years on HSN and many many work photo shoots, there is one thing I've learned....the camera EATS MAKEUP. By that I mean if you want your makeup to show on camera, add as much as you normally would, and then double it. It's something to do with the bright lights and flash. It just blows everything out.
Two days ago a my hubbie came home with a sports accident. The end result, a big ol' fashioned black eye. I decided to work my Benefit magic and use the essential tools for flawless coverage (and believe me, for all those guys and gals that are prone to sporting accidents and bruise like a peach, listen up).
What? It's September? Back to school? Fall? Who knew? This isn't sarcasm people! This season has totally snuck up on me, the following should have given me a clue: 1.) We are actually seeing sun in San Francisco! 2.) Just wrote that dang September rent check... 3.)

The cool kids will be out to play this weekend, as our lovely city by the bay welcomes the invasion of indie artists for the annual summer music festival, Outside Lands. Several of us gals here at the office will be attending the three-day festival with these must-have Benefit products that no Benebabe should be without during her summer adventures. (I know these babies will be in my satchel all weekend long!)
For the gal-on-the-go, as so many of us Benebabes are, it seems there is never enough time in the day to get it all done. One common problem area? Mornings! I don't know about you, but I'm always running out the door wishing I had a few more minutes in my morning routine. To kick off this marvelous Monday morning, I did an unofficial survey and asked gals (and 1 guy!) here in the office what they would do with 5 extra minutes in their morning routines...check out the answers below! What would YOU do with 5 extra minutes in your morning routine? Do tell!
