Let’s say your house is burning. No, scratch that — it's too stressful to even imagine. Let's say the hills in the far distance behind your house are burning and they want to evacuate "just in case". It’s burning very slowly, and you’ve already packed up your favorite clothes and spare undies and grabbed all your loved ones/photos/computers/backup drives/important documents/pets/cash money/snacks/favorite pillow/accessories/and that gorgeous pair of sweet wedges you just bought (you’re on your way to a comfy hotel or house so you don’t need a tent, sleeping bag or TP) but still had enough time to think about grabbing some makeup for your emergency “bag” aka: truck.
You’ve really pushed your time up until now, clearly, so you can only reach into your makeup drawer and grab the first 5 things your hands touch. What would you hope to grab?
Keep in mind, you’ll be on a spending freeze until you know what your insurance will be paying (just in case the fire actually reaches your house, which it won't, but just in case) so you’ll want to grab what you’ll need to look semi-pulled together in the meantime.
This is turning out to be quite the hypothetical. How ‘bout I just tell you what I’d grab?
A fabulous mascara: I know, this one is super obvi. Admittedly, I am a mascara addict; even when I’m perfectly happy with my current mascara I find myself reading reviews online, trying out newbies at the beauty counter and borrowing “touch-ups” from coworkers, just to try their faves. I have tried A LOT of mascaras and, believe it or not, my backup is L’Oreal Voluminous. Always saves the day when a more expensive purchase has failed me!
Moisturizing lip wear: Lip stain, lipstick, lipgloss, lip balm; choose your weakness. I’m big on Tarte’s LipSurgence Natural Lip Luster in Adored. It’s like a stain, gloss and moisturizing balm in one, with a kick of peppermint. A little piece of makeup perfection. You can even control the amount of color you get: a quick sweep gives you a light sheen, while a few heavier swipes create a more lipstick-like finish.
A go-to eyeshadow shade: Do you have a go-to eyeshadow? One that never lets you down? One that has seen you through the good times and the bad (like a hypothetical house-burning incident)? I do. Mine is Tarte’s Femme Naturale shadow in Golden Peach. It’s almost like wearing no shadow at all, but it brightens up my eyes and gives me just enough shimmer to remind me it’s there, being fabulous.
Of course, everyone has different staples in their makeup collection. Maybe yours includes a clean foundation, maybe a great concealer or a fab pair of precision tweezers. Whatever your cosmetic staples may be, I hope you’ll always have them when you need them most!
You know, it looks like the wind has died down a bit and the smoke seems to be headed the other way. Might as well reach into the closet and grab those cute sneaks and perhaps even pair of sassy heels for when you go to dinner at the hotel. Hey, the fire may have died down but you're already packed — make the most of a weekend away!

Cartoon Inspired Makeup is for Grown-Ups too! NEW PixiGlow at Target
According to a recent New York Times’ Skin Deep column, cartoon inspired makeup not only appeals to tweens but to grown women. Past limited-edition cartoon inspired cosmetic lines such as Wonder Woman for MAC and Too Faced Smurfette collection have given women a tinge of childhood lightheartedness with a pretty, sophisticated all grown up look.
Right on trend, Pixi creator and Target beauty design partner Petra Strand has teamed with The Walt Disney Co. to design the limited-edition PixiGlow collection available exclusively at Target. Inspired by Disney’s most iconic fairy, Tinker Bell, Petra worked closely with Disney character artist John Quinn in a unique collaboration. Together they re-imagined the Tinker Bell of childhood memories into a vintage-inspired beauty who will appeal to women of all ages. Petra shares, “In collaboration with Disney, we created a unique Tinker Bell collection that captures the fresh-faced, glowing, and timeless beauty of both a Disney icon and the Pixi brand by reinforcing that makeup simply enhances and perfects.
