I’m lucky to be on the west coast, so a lot of times I only have to stay up til 9-10PM, which isn’t bad at all. I’ve been around for many a MAC launch, though I’ve certainly been at the computer at 5AM to catch products like Marine Life. I’ve never stayed up – but I will check for a a really big launch every time I wake up (I am a light sleeper, so I usually wake up five times a night).

I have large dressers that have sixteen drawers each, which house the majority of what I have. Inside each drawer, I use shallow and deep clear drawer organizers from The Container Store. I also have large bookshelves that hold equally large clear plastic containers for to-be-reviewed products. I organize by brand when there’s enough product that it makes sense to do so, but when there’s not, I will group the odd ones out (e.g. I have one container that holds various high-end lipglosses).

I can usually find a shade that matches well enough within a range, because I am not on either extreme end of the spectrum (neither really, really fair or deeper in complexion), but I do find many warm options tend to run yellower than my particular skin tone needs. I also find that I’m in-between light-medium and medium, so I often have to mix to get the right shade or use the lighter liquid and a darker powder (or vice versa).

When it gets particularly cold, my skin has a tendency to get drier, so I opt for a heavier, richer night cream. I usually use something fairly lightweight and quick-absorbing during the day, though. I really like Renee Rouleau’s Skin Drink, which is like a serum, because it doesn’t add any weight and can be used under whatever moisturizer you do have, for added moisture.
