Meet Tuesday Bassen
on her morning routine
I wake up at 7:30 thanks to my three furry alarm clocks. I take care of them, shower, and I'm out of the house by 8 AM. I drive to my studio in Chinatown and immediately go to my favorite coffee shop, Endorffeine and then start my day.
on her path to illustrating
In high school, I was introduced to the concept of pursuing art as a career and study when I enrolled in a public art school program.
on adopting her dogs
My boyfriend, Ben, and I have three miniature dachshunds. Ben had Scully before we started dating, but I met my first dog, Gus, through his foster. Shortly after, the rescue asked if we could help foster a puppy that had been traumatized. Though we did not want a third dog, we fell in love with her and kept Baby Tiny.
on her style and shopping habits
I like to go to local shops and small businesses to buy clothes. I have two "linen sacks" from Black Crane that I wear all summer long. Otherwise, I wear black jeans and tops from my own collection of clothing that I produce.
on her beauty routine and recommendations
I try to keep it as simple as possible. I use Malin and Goetz face wash. It seems to be the only thing that doesn't irritate my sensitive skin. Then I use NARS concealer. I go in once a month for lash extensions so I don't have to worry about eye makeup for an everyday look. My tip is to put stock in your passion, and not your face.
I recommend Malin + Goetz Face Moisturizer, Malin + Goetz Eucalyptus Deodorant, Sunfood MSM Lotion in Coconut Rose, Stila Eyeliner, Maybelline Great Lash Mascara, NARS Blush, Smashbox Lid Primer, and ILIA Lip Crayon.
