So I’m going to be sharing my morning routine with you! From when I wake up.. to when I walk out of the door! I’ll try and make it as short as possible.. who am I kidding? Really?
Rise and Shine
So every day I wake up at a different time. If I have been on days, it is usually pretty early. If I have been on nights then that’s when I don’t get up until about 1/2pm. Everyday depends on different things! I don’t know why but when I’m awake I hate just lying in bed, so I usually get up straight away. Some mornings I will have a shower, but the majority of the time I have a bath or shower the night before.
So every morning I cleanse my face.. some days I can be a bit lazy and just use my ‘Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water’ but most days I go to the bathroom and use two products. The ‘Nivea Gentle Exfoliating Scrub’ and ‘Pro Hydrating Creamy Face Scrub’ are my two favourites. After having a squeaky clean face and brushing my teeth, I then jump straight into the fun stuff! I have a lot of skin care! I change up my routine from day to day and I am constantly buying new products. My current favourite skin care brands are Garnier and NSPA as you might have guessed, as I have been mentioning a few of their products recently! I know there are a lot of products in my list, but my skin care probably takes longer than my makeup.. I just have so many that I love and that I use everyday. I do change it up so some days I will use one product and a different one the next day but they pretty much all get used regularly. So my favourite products to use at the moment consist of:
- NSPA Youthful Eye Cream
- Simple Soothing Eye Balm
- Perfectly Clear Calming Spot Gel
- Garnier Moisture Match Hydrating Gel
- Garnier Moisure + Nourish Rich Daily Moisturiser
- Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water
- NSPA Ultra-Hydrate Cream
- Tesco Hydrating Night Cream
- NSPA Instant Blur Primer .. which brings me on to my next section!
Putting My Face On
Man I love that saying! So next up I always do my makeup, I wont go into crazy detail about this part because we will be here for a good couple of hours. If I have a day off like today, then usually I will take my time with my makeup. I usually like experimenting on days like this, which is exactly what I have done today. So I will usually do more bold makeup looks just to practise and have a little play around. Todays Makeup Look is a Cut Crease with a pink lip.. I’m really getting into this whole pink lip thing! Once I have made a complete mess of my makeup area/vanity/make shift dressing table, I always have to clear it up again. I think this space is one of the two/three things I am slightly OCD over. It has to be right!
The products I used today were:
Max Factor Lasting Performance Foundation – 100 Fair
Max Factor Under Eye Concealer – Ivory
Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer – Fair
Collection Pressed Powder – Ivory
Mother Home Contour Pallete – For contour and cut crease.
Rimmel Scandal Eyes Black Gel Liner
George Curl ‘Em Mascara
Maybelline Brow Satin – Dark Brown
Maybelline Brow Drama – Medium Brown
Rimmel Scandal Eyes Kohl Eyeliner – Nude
Rimmel Apocolips Lip Lacquer – Nude Eclipse
Mua Matte Lipstick – Pouty Pink
I am not a sit at home in your pjs all day kind of girl! I like to go out, especially if the weather is sunny like today! So of course I have to get dressed! Most days everyday consists of leggings of some kind. I’m not huge on clothes, or hair.. I am more of a makeup girl myself! Hence why this section is actually short!
My Neglected Hair
My hair is seriously neglected.. all I ever do to it is throw it up in a bun or I will occasionally straighten it! Not a lot goes on up there if i’m honest!
Once I am done getting ready, I usually spend some time just browsing through facebook/instagram and I spend a LOT of time on here! Reading or writing.. what ever the day brings! I will be making an Instagram account for this blog but I just haven’t got round to it yet! Apologies!
Even though I love food, I never really have breakfast. Occasionally I will have a cup of tea but apart from that I usually won’t eat until later on in the day. It’s just one of those bad habits I have!
I hate staying in for the day, so usually on my days off I will either go for a drive or go to see friends and family. I occasionally find myself shopping.. Oops!
So that is pretty much it for my morning routine, nothing special really. I hope you all enjoyed…
Until next time,
