Rise and shine!
People say your morning routine defines you. That’s why I don’t wake up until about 10 am most days. Other people start with meditation and yoga. Me? The first thing I do is press the snooze button. Describing me as a morning person is the funniest thing a person could say. I despise waking up. Why? Sleeping is the best thing ever!
But, sadly, I have to wake up at some time or another *cough cough* … 1pm. My morning routine might be similar to yours, but everyone has their own unique quirks. Behind the camera and early posts are eye bags and scheduled posts because I am not about that productive morning jam.
Today was an early morning. ;( my alarm woke me up at 8!!!! What?? Trust me, I smashed that “Stop” button as if it were a bug.
A couple hours later, I dragged my self out of bed. And I definitely am NOT awake enough to function to make my bed.
The first thing I do, if I have time in the mornings or if I didn’t shower the night before #lazy (don’t act like you don’t do it too hahaha) is take a hottttt shower. My eyes shoot open and my sinuses are cleared by steaming water. Now, I feel ready for the new day ahead of me!
While I’m in the shower, I also multitask by washing my face. I use a Clarisonic brush and Neutrogena Face Wash. Click this —> JANUARY’S TOP BEAUTY PICKS to read more about the Neutrogena Face Wash!
11: 15 AM
Without my contacts, I’m as blind as a bat. Okay, that might be an exaggeration but it is like not being able to taste the food you eat. I have to wear my contacts to be awake and actually see the things around me.
I don’t know why I explained why I wear my contacts, lol that paragraph was useless.
Next up is my everyday sloppy makeup routine! In no way shape or form and I a makeup professional so don’t roast me, please.
First, I slap (excuse me sorry I meant “delicately fill it in”) with Bobbi Brown eyeshadow on my eyebrows and then define the angles with the Anastasia Brow Wiz.
For your own satisfaction and amusement, can we just appreciate the major glow up my eyebrows had in less than 2 minutes?
“Conceal don’t feel, don’t let them knowwww!!!” I am RAVING about this concealer, it is the best thing ever. I don’t want to splurge on a Nars creamy concealer or Tarte Shape tape so this is definitely a perfect dupe. I apply it under my eyes and red spots around my nose.
mugshots hahahaha ^^^^^
My face is a blank wall and it’s time for some paint! (that was my attempt of being artsy) I use a rosy red lip balm from Anthropology as a blush. I find that using lipstick or cream blushes is better than powder ones.
On most mornings, I apply the Chanel mascara but if I feel like I’m going to cry anytime through the day lol or more commonly, go swimming, I use Maybelline’s Falsies Waterproof mascara.
Then, I am finally finished with my quick and simple makeup! After, I go pick out my outfit for the day. I am a big fan of nike shorts with a random shirt I found on my bedroom floor. But for the sake of starting Spring Break on a fashionable note- I throw on a top from Francesca’s and ruffled shorts.
For the moment you all have been waiting for! Time to make my bed!
Breakfast can either break or make your day. For the past few weeks, I have started the habit of drinking a smoothie every morning with my breakfast. After I make my smoothie, I grab some cereal or leftovers. If you know me, you know I always have some leftover Chipotle.
My morning routine is complete! For the rest of the day, I am found planning and writing my blog posts, taking naps, and eating more chipotle.
