I've recently gotten back into publication design as a result of beginning my first ever photography class. It's made me want to go out and shoot everything and immediately put the photos into InDesign where I can incorporate some type and explore the relationship between the two. I can't stop staring at these photos. Where do you go to find photo inspiration?
Urban Decay Naked Basics Palette
Maybelline Fit Me Concealer
La Rose de Versaille Eyeliner
Mac Blush in "Well Dressed"
Mac Lipstick in "Lady Danger"
Benefit "They're Real!" Mascara
Nyx Matte Lipstick in "Indie Flick" (now sold in Target!)
Covergirl LashBlast Clump Crusher Mascara
Rimmel Stay Matte Powder
It isn't until I go out of town and forget to pack one of my staple makeup products that I realize just how essential it is. These are the six products that I try extra hard not to forget.
Maybelline's Fit Me Concealer has been my go-to concealer for years. It doesn't break out my sensitive skin and provides just the right amount of coverage. Definitely my #1 "can't live without", if you will. I love the versatility, compact packaging, and neutrality of UD's Naked Basic's Palette and I wear at least one shade nearly every day. The La Rose de Versaille eyeliner was a Christmas gift my brother brought back for me from Hong Kong and it's the best eyeliner I've ever used. I can only find it on eBay now, so that's going to be an issue. Mac's blush in "Well Dressed" is the perfect tone of pinky/plum for pale skin. I just recently tried the Benefit "They're Real!" mascara and it's great, however it's expensive. And Mac's "Lady Danger" lipstick is my favorite red/orange lipstick ever.
What are your favorite makeup products? Have you tried any of these?
As I begin my search for a job in a new city, I've subsequently been hunting down apartments in the area. I'm fully aware that the first apartment I get will not be ideal, and I'm okay with that. But right next to graphic design, interior design is something that brings me so much joy. I just want something I can work with. By posting these inspiring spaces, I never intend to actually acquire a space quite like these. Instead, I see certain aspects of the spaces that, to me, are worth taking note of. Keep that in mind when looking at these somewhat overwhelming spaces so as to not get discouraged.
Angel Olsen (particularly Burn Your Fire For No Witness)
Glass Teapot with Infuser
Gong Fu Tea (my favorite is Ancient Happiness)
Kitty Wine Stopper
MAC lipstick in "Lady Danger"
All of the time spent with my family during the holidays
Hosting a NYE party
Looking Forward to:
Visiting the new coffee shop in East Village
My sister visiting in February
Traveling to the Pacific Northwest
My sister made the most delicious spritzers last weekend, so I thought I'd share the recipe! It's super simple and perfect for NYE. She used SanPellegrino Limonata, which I think is what made these things so darn good. Happy New Year!
