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!
To makeup or not to makeup? That is the question, at least when it applies to different social situations. For example, is it ever okay to apply makeup while at the dinner table? I was inspired to delve into this topic further when I was recently discussing with a friend whether it is acceptable to check one's cell phone during dinner. I personally, am not a fan of checking a phone during dinner, primarily out of respect to my dining companion. But what about reapplying lipstick after you've finished your meal? Or touching up your makeup on public transit?
But seriously, the ultra radiance facial re-hydrating mist is my new obsession, and I admit, lately I've been "sharing" a spritz or two with my lucky coworkers! I had never used a facial mist before, so at first, I was skeptical as to why someone would need one. But now, this cooling mist is a mainstay on my dresser...and desk.
Remember the glory days of paint-by-number, when instructions were crystal clear and you always ended up with a masterpiece. If you’re a gal (like me) who wished putting on makeup was just as easy, and are hopeful that one day there will be a makeup for dummies club in your community, then look no further.
Spring has sprung, and so has my desire for bronzing in heavy doses! In my experience with self tanners, I have on occasion seen my brow get its faux-glow on...and it aint pretty. No blonde should ever start the trend for the burnished-brow look. I'm not going to blame the tanning culprit because clearly it's my application that needs a lesson or two. And I'll be honest, this is not the first time I have tanned my brows and shall I dare say, revealed other hair-tinted sightings. YIKES. Let's face it, for a blonde, there is no excuse!
