OMG! Why Do You Have So Much Makeup?
Um. Well. That’s because I’m a makeup artist, asshole.
No I’m Not
I keep my personal cosmetic case and brushes with me because my week consists of me doing my clients makeup and then having 10 minutes to slap something on my face so I can look somewhat put together while driving to an event where I must pull a Mia Thermopolous and change in the backseat. …ungracefully.
If you didn’t get that reference there is no possible way we can be friends.
Also, that’s the same reason I keep emergency nail polish in my purse because although I try and get a mani and pedi quite often, come fall and winter my feet only see the insides of leather boots. I sleep in them. Just kidding. Or am I?
Anyway if I decide to wear open toe pumps I’m known to just pull a do it yourselfer with some devils advocate and call it a day.
Sometimes I pack a clutch with me and do a quick switcheroni from my purse throwing whatever makeup I use in my clutch. It’s usually just ends up being whatever I used on my lips and some pressed powder with a brush so I can use the excuse - “Excuse me while I go to the ladies room, I must powder my nose!”
Right Now I’m using this really cute Chantacaille “freebee” cosmetic case. Inside it holds:
Bobbi Brown Eye Cream
Light Wonder Foundation (number 2)
Brow Wiz in taupe
Chantacaille bronzer in St Barths
CT Rocker Chic Pallette
CT Feline Flick
CT Rock n coal in bedroom black
NYX Setting spray in matte
NYX Nude beige lip liner
Chanel Gloss Volume
Blush- right now Joy Chantacaille
Demi Whispies from Ardell just incase shit gets fancy
My brushes that I keep on me are I believe from this past years MAC Holiday Collection Travel Brush Set. Gets the job done, for most of the products I use my fingers anyway.
Yes, I use a lot of CT
Yes, I use A LOT of Chantacaille.
Yes, I have invested a lot in products by those brands for my clients.
Works for me works for them, everyone’s happy.
