I’m always out on the weekends snuggling with my queer coven so I have perfected the weekend beauty bag. Here is what I carry around, and here is the look that comes out of it most of the time. 

  1. Skincare: i wash my makeup off with coconut oil and then a cleansing oil, then I do a sheet mask and/or use my Tatcha Serum. I talk about Tatcha pretty regularly and I have plans for you all regarding the brand — just you wait. I’ve been using this eye cream lately, too. I don’t think eye creams are really necessary to routines — but I find it soothing for my puffy eyes, so I use it. 
  2. Makeup: I prime with Urban Detox, which isn’t a primer, but it moisturizes and makes my skin feel nice at the start of a hungover late morning/early afternoon. Sometimes I just use spot concealer (with this brush) rather than foundation nowadays. I find applying this foundation with your fingers works a lot better than with a brush. I actually prefer just using concealer as necessary at this point though. #blessed!!!!! For blush and illuminator I use a now discontinued Armani Blush  but I’m kind of hoping they re-release it or release something similar for 2014 Holiday….fingers crossed. It’s absolutely stunning. I’m contouring with the also discontinued LE Anastasia Palette (still available on Amazon, but for $20 more than retail)— as an alternative, the Smashbox Contour Kit OR the NYX Taupe Blush is totally good. I contour with a Real Techniques brush. As for lips, I’m wearing my friend’s lipstick from Color Pop — Creature, named after her blog. It’s a delicious matte. Apply carefully! For $5, it’s a total steal. I often wear Lady Danger nowadays, too. Oh — and I do my brows with Anatasia Brow Pencil.
  3. Perfume: Changes every day, I just carry a handful of travel sized atomizers to apply through my weekends. I’m currently revisiting Escentric Molecules Molecule 01.
