You’ve seen the quirky packaging, the pun-heavy product names, and cute-as-a-button campaigns from Benefit Cosmetics. But, behind the cheeky blushes and the badass mascaras sits a team of hard-working, incredibly stylish gals busting their butts to bring you the beauty staples you’ve come to cherish.
And the makeup giant just so happens to call good ol' San Francisco home, with three expansive floors nestled in the downtown area—oozing beauty from every nook and cranny. So, of course, we had to pay this pretty place a visit to see just what goes down inside those pink walls. And boy, were we in for a treat. We followed four of the company's coolest staffers around the larger-than-life HQ, and documented every moment. The results: a visual array of inspirational style, deers that double as showgirls (seriously), a collection of swoon-worthy vintage mannequin heads, and rad life-sized products to play with. Interested? We thought so. Click through to get a major dose of office, outfit, and (of course) makeup envy, right here.
