Day One: AWP Game Day

Say it and spray it with some helpful products that make waking up at 5 a.m. for your flight to AWP a complete breeze.

Smashbox Photo Finish Primer Water $32
Is it water or primer? It’s primer. Don’t drink this stuff even if you are about to scream a rainbow at the airport. Spray a fine mist over bare skin before applying foundation. It’s able to make foundation glide on over the skin and keep it from smudging all over your flight pillow.

L’Oreal Paris Infallible Makeup Extender Setting Spray $17
Fine lines like to congregate on the face during the night, especially if you have somewhere special to go the next day. 86 them off your face! Blast this setting spray to keep foundation from setting up shop inside them. Go home fine lines! You’re drunk!

Oribe Airbrush Root Touch-Up Spray $29
“It doesn’t matter what they say. In the jealous games people play. Our roots are concealed.” Cover unsightly roots with tinted power that comes in red, blond or brown. Pro Tip: This will run faster than me sprinting for the first pumpkin latte of the season, so wear a hat if it’s raining.

Formula X for Sephora Drying Spray $14
There’s only a handful of things that you can actually accomplish in one minute: application of lipstick, 10 sit ups, shoplifting, taxes, etc. This fast drying polish goes on smooth without too many air bubbles and drier than money in a Portland strip club.

Degree Motion Sense Dry Spray Antiperspirant $5
Don’t leave the plane like you’ve been living under a bridge. Spray where needed, which could be anywhere depending on that day.

Stay hydrated on the plane, so you can enjoy Bloody Marys at the airport. ‘Nuff said.enhanced-7635-1401741255-18

AWP Beauty Week 2015

Will These Writers Bring It? 

What better way to checkout the latest beauty trends rockin’ this great smudge pot of opportunity than attending Association of Writers & Writing Programs Conference? That’s a mouthful! This week I will be interviewing the who’s who in the lit (literally) world and find out what they’re wearing this season for beauty. I’ll attend reading things and other stuff and probably find out some really cool spots to hang out in Minneapolis. Let’s see who’s got the beauty pot at the end of this reading rainbow.
