For applying: lots and lots of natural light (but via bulbs, because I like the reliability of that vs. time of day, weather, etc.), a comfy chair that’s easy to clean (makeup, hello!), a sink nearby, large, horizontal mirror and then a smaller, magnifying mirror, and lots and lots of counter/vanity space to spread products out. For storing: some open shelving for some items (like perfumes or some crazy packaging) as a decorative element, lots and lots of drawers with jigsaw-like organizers that can hold glosses vertically, natural light filtering in, a rug in the center, and an ottoman on the rug!

  • Weekend plans: The usual — grocery shopping, brunch with Shaun, write reviews!
  • Do you like traveling?: I totally don’t! I think the idea is semi-appealing in theory, but I am a total home-body! I just don’t have that strong urge to explore or travel to places unknown. When it comes to the idea of vacation to relax, I find it’s better for me to have more regular ways that I can take a moment to enjoy working hard, like a massage or a nice dinner out. It’s more my speed, and I think it helps me from burning out. It’s possible that for me, traveling or going somewhere just means I work 16-hour days for as many days as I’m gone, so it’s super stressful just to go away, lol!
