As far as makeup looks go, I kind of covet an "it girl" messy smoky eye a la Nicole Richie, Kate Moss, and Rachel Roy. In fact, I remember reading a magazine article once that talked about getting this sexy look by simply sleeping in your makeup. They showed a model with perfectly disheveled hair and smudgy shadow that looked effortlessly cool. Who wouldn't want to wake up looking like that, right? So I tried it, and the results, not so pretty. I woke up looking like more of a makeup meltdown with cray hair. Disappointed. So that you never have to go through this sleep study yourself, I decided to take on an extra FNO assignment. Between working the red carpet, hanging with the Bachelorette, Emily Maynard, and catching a pop-in visit by the one and only Anna Wintour, I called on a few of my makeup artist friends to tell me exactly what products they would use to get Nicole Richie's rockstar look. You ready?

It's Day 8 of the mBLOG Beauty Giveaway, and today I'm serving up sets from a brand that brings together two of my favorite things, a sense of humor and beauty products that deliver results. That brand, of course, is Benefit Cosmetics, the San Fran-based company that makes beauty seem like a party that everyone's invited to! Their products are fun, fresh, and nothing short of fantastic. And don't let the cheeky names fool you, that's just a stroke of creative genius. The real magic lies inside their cute packaging, with serious formulas that mean business.
