Are you craving any in particular?My current makeup bag is Kate Spade but it’s a few years old – I currently have my eyes on this Leopard Large Flat Pouch, which matches my work tote. Kate Spade makes the best makeup bags in my book – chic and easy to clean.Do you have a makeup tip or secret you would like to share?My makeup tip is red lipstick! I work long hours, and bright lips gives the impression that I tried that day even if I had four hours of sleep.Any particular makeup trend that you’re looking forward for winter?I don’t follow many makeup trends – classic is best in my book – but I do love seasonal nail colors. Essie’s School of Hard Rocks, Bobbing for Baubles and Damsel in a Dress are three of my picks for fall/winter.How does your day makeup routine differs from your night time one?During the week, I never have enough time to re-do my makeup in time for after-work drinks or dinner, so I swipe on some lipstick and bronzer and am ready for anything!Get Kirby’s favorite products:> Clinque Superbalanced Foundation> Clinique Moisture Surge Tinted Moisturizer> Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick Compact in Nectar > Clinique True Bronze Pressed Powder Bronzer> Chanel Levres Scintillantes Lipgloss in Myriade> NARS Eyeliner Pencil in Black Moon> Maybelline Great Lash Mascara> Kate Spade Leopard Large Flat Pouch * Thank you so much Kirby, it was so lovely to work with you!
