What's in Kristi's Makeup Bag?

Do you ever wish you could approach a stylish woman on the street and ask what essentials she carries in her makeup bag? Well, we're checking in for you.
Name: Kristi Garced
Age: 26
Location: New York
Occupation: Reporter and editor at Women's Wear Daily
Beauty icon: "Brigitte Bardot in her prime was the most beautiful and irresistible. Bianca Jagger, too. I can relate more to her sense of style and she possesses that intangible (and perfect) balance of strength and femininity. And Tilda Swinton forever."
Book she can’t put down: "I've been zipping through How Should a Person Be? by Sheila Heti."
Holiday plans: "I love getting out of New York for the holidays, much to the dismay of my parents. I've been looking into tickets for Thanksgiving weekend—something along the lines of piña coladas, 80 degrees and sand."
Her perfect holiday gift: "I've got my eye on a wool Balenciaga coat, a few different shirts by Dries [Van Noten] and some Repossi rings."
What’s in her makeup bag:
  • Fresh Soy Face Cleanser: "This was recommended by a certain beauty-product-obsessed friend of mine. They better not ever discontinue it."
  • Chanel Hydra Beauty Gel Crème: "It’s pricey but worth it. I'm addicted to the scent."
  • YSL Touche Éclat: "They say it's like 8 hours of a sleep for good reason."
  • MAC Eye Pencil in Coffee: "It’s been a staple since high school."
  • Dior Diorshow Iconic mascara: "It’s the best one I've found."
  • NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Cruella: "I'm not such a lipstick girl, but Cruella is a perfect shade of red if I'm in the mood."
Thanks, Kristi. Look out for new makeup bag disclosures every week!
