For me the first thing I need in the morning is a cuppa! Boiling the kettle is the first thing I do before jumping in the shower! Nothing beats a cuppa, for me on the weekends getting a cuppa and going back to bed to drink it is the best thing! If I get up early enough during the week I do like to sit under the duvet drink my tea and catch up on twitter! Whilst in the shower I prep my face. At the moment I’m using my Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish. As soon as I get out of the shower I pop on my Balance Me Rich Moisturiser* and Bobbi Brown eye cream.
At the moment I’m enjoying less is more make up and not using foundation everyday. I prefer my skin to have a chance to breath if I’m not looking to red. I tend to chose extra time in bed over make up for work!! Beauty sleep/looking good for work! For me it’s a simple choice.
If I do use foundation at the moment I’m loving the Maybelline Dream Nude Airfoam. It feels so light on the skin and doesn’t masque my skin but just evens the skin tone. I then finish with Liz Earle bronzer to contour and Dandelion Blush (seriously still loving this combination 18 months since I first got it!)
For the eyes it’s usually a quick sweep of YDK over the lid and then I like to use a purple, brown or green liner to adfd some definition without it being as bold as black. Then onto a quick sweep of mascara. I love Lancome Hypnose Drama as it’s done in one coat!
Brows are all about gimme brow at the moment! I love how quick it is. I thought it would run out quickly but it’s still going strong at the moment with everyday use!
Time for a quick sip of tea and get dressed before making lunch for work then I’m running out the door as I’m usually late by this point. No matter what time I get up the last 5 minutes are always a rush!
Are you a take your time in the morning gal or rush, grab and go?
