I’ve figured out why my skin looked so janky while I was in Michigan: I didn’t bring my Clarisonic. Normally I do bring it when I travel, but the cabin where Dan is living is TINY, and I tried to keep the amount of junk I brought to a minimum. I know he’ll laugh if…

Once again I know I’m coming at you out of left field, but this is something I’ve spent a lot of time thinking about. Not just recently but for my entire life. I can remember being little, not more than 6 or 7, and bringing home a book from the school library called Wait Till Helen Comes about a…

I am fried, it’s practically impossible to focus, and this is what I did today. I hate laundromats with a passion, but since there aren’t laundry facilities in Dan’s little Michigan house, my options were to get over my hatred or go commando in dirty clothes. I chose the former option. Despite it being the…

Augmented reality. It’s the fancy technology that allows us to virtually try on makeup, either through apps or mirrors in restrooms in China. One of the companies pioneering this technology is Modiface. They’ve worked with Sephora to design the Virtual Artist section of the iOS and Android Sephora apps, and Benefit to design the Brow Try-On. There…

I’ve mentioned this once or twice before, but I really hate cleaning my brushes. There are some chores that I just can’t stand to do, and that’s one of them. I will literally wait until I don’t have a single clean brush left to wash them, and I’ve even been known to just buy new…
