1) Bag // Deux Lux. I saw it on a client first and it reminded me of Bottega Veneta. She told me it was from Off 5th & I bought it immediately (thanks Courtney!)

 2) Wallet // Betsey Johnson – I also have the matching weekender… duh.
3) Tiny Mirror – I take every opportunity to stop and have a beauty moment.4) Anastasia Perfect Brow Pencil – THAT’S BAE.

5) LIP BALM(s) – some people do not use lip balm – they live in a very different world than I do. My favorite in this bunch is Lavender from Whole Body.

6) Rhoto Eye Drops – a makeup artist that worked with Lindsay Lohan said LL could be out all night and these drops made her look like she got a full eight hours.  SOLD
7) Dental Care – just because I’M in a party phase doesn’t mean my teeth have to be.
8) SNACK – usually candy but today its granola 🙁

9) Reading Material – KATE MOSS FOREVER.

10) MUSIC – @itsmatthewdavis on Spotify (AND TWITTER!)

11) Eminence Lime Tonique – facial mists are just f#cking REFRESHING, okay?
12) EVO Builder’s Paradise – HAIR ON FLEEK
13) Eminence Neroli Eye Serum & Potent C+E Serum – SKIN ON FLEEK

How to get the look: Indie Princess

Music festival season is in full swing with Hang Out Fest is right around the corner and Bonnaroo close behind.  Have you thought about what you are going to do with your hair while you’re checking out all your favorite bands (and maybe a few you haven’t heard of)?

Well – we’ve got you covered with a series of how-to’s for easy to achieve looks that are inspired by all the different music genres you can catch at any festival.

First up, we have “Indie Princess”. This look is perfect for day 1 of any festival. You know… the first day when your hair is still clean, and your most recent shower was within the last 24 hours.

All you need to achieve this look is Evo Cassius Clay, Evo Salty Dog,  and a diffuser attachment for your blowdryer.  So gather your tools, and let’s get started….

Step 1. Apply a dime size amount of Evo Cassius Clay to damp hair. This is a clay based product that is going to give your hair texture and chunkiness. Be sure to emulsify the product in your hands before applying to your hair, and then work it through your mid-lengths and ends only.

Step 2. With your hair parted in the direction you want to wear it (we suggest a deep side part for this look), twist 1″-2″ sections of hair in a random pattern all over your head, and then spray with Evo Salty Dog. The twists will help form textured waves with a random pattern – we don’t want it looking too “done”, and the Salty Dog is going to give your waves a beachy, matte texture.

Step 3. Diffuse your hair on high heat / low speed until it is about 90% dry.

Step 4. You’re finished! Now you have fun, matte, textured waves and you’re ready for a day of checking out cute boys in bands.

Modification: It’s easy to build on this look and create a half-up top knot, too. Simply section your dry hair from temple to temple and twist up into a bun. Secure with one or two bobby pins, and your hair is out your face (and still super cute).

DIY vegan & cruelty-free skincare wipes

Are you a girl on-the-go and find it hard to make time to pamper yourself?
We all do, and that’s why here at Lucy Pop we are super pumped on the
newest product from Eminence, the Rice Milk Cleanser! This 3 in 1 cleansing
water has us all obsessed. Not only does it cleanse, tone, and remove makeup, but
it leaves the skin glowing and looking like porcelain. Who doesn’t want that?

Available at Lucy Pop Salon - $42
Available at Lucy Pop Salon – $42

Main Ingredients & Key Benefits:

* Rice Milk- moisturizes, brightens skin, and minimizes the appearance of pores.

* Pomelo Juice- rich in vitamins and antioxidants, age minimizer, and increases the production   of collagen. (um, yes please!)

* Witch Hazel-  anti-inflammatory and reduces look of inflammation. Redness begone!

Ready for the easy part?

This will take less than five minutes, and here’s what you’ll need…
-Eminence Rice Milk Cleanser
-zip-lock bags
-water
-cotton rounds

STEP 1
Slightly dampen your cotton rounds; you can do however many you want. You want to make sure they are not sopping wet as to remember water is only going to dilute the Rice Milk Cleanser.

STEP 2
Once you have damped your cotton rounds, you will want to apply about 4-5 drops of your Rice Milk Cleanser to each pad.

STEP 3
After applying Rice Milk cleanser, put your cleansing and pads into a zip lock bag. And voilà! You have your own cleansing pads ready-to-go!

*These DIY cleansing pads are vegan & cruelty-free (because we don’t believe in hurting animals for beauty routines) AND are essential back pack items for music festivals (hello – Bonnaroo!)
