The AM/PM Beauty Tag
As some of you may know I always love a good tag post, whether it's reading or writing them. So big thanks to the lovely Becki from beautyandthebrunette.co.uk for tagging me to do the AM / PM beauty tag!
What is your morning beauty routine?
Honestly, it’s a good day if I even splash water on my face. I’m super lazy in the mornings. I apply a moisturizer with sunscreen in it and call it good.
What's for breakfast?
I go through phases with my breakfast where I’ll eat nothing but cereal for a few months and then switch to waffles. Lately I’ve been eating peanut butter and jelly sandwiches because they’re quick to make and keep me full until my lunch break!
Coffee or Tea?
I’ll drink both but I prefer coffee, especially French vanilla cappuccinos! I take my coffee with French vanilla creamer and honey, but again, I’m too lazy to make it in the morning so I don’t drink coffee or tea often. Plus, for some reason they both make me feel sleepy?
How long does it take you to get out the door?
I give myself around forty-five minutes, at least fifteen of which I spend checking social media and deciding what to wear. I take showers and straighten my hair at night so I don’t have to spend that extra time doing it in the morning. I am definitely not a morning person!
What's your go-to make-up look on a fuss-free morning?
I really love playing around with make-up so even a fuss-free morning involves a lot of products! At the moment I've been going for a lighter base, so I use the Physicians formula Argan Wear BB cream. I like the Benefit Hoola bronzer for contouring and I've been trying out a few different drugstore blushes for my blog. For the eyes, I've recently fallen in love with a Stila trio but I change up my eye products all the time! I'm testing out a few different mascaras and I'm constantly rotating through lip products. I'm trying to experiment with color for summer so I've been going for either a bright lip or a non-neutral eye almost every day that I wear make-up.
What is your evening beauty routine?
I wash my face with the Biore charcoal face wash, which takes off most of my make-up, and then I use the Mary Kay eye make-up remover to get the remainder. I follow up with a heavier moisturizer like the Curel Daily Moisture and use the Elf Illuminating eye cream. Once or twice a week I exfoliate and I enjoy treating myself to mud masks when I have the time!
Snack time! What's in the bowl?
I’m a notorious chocoholic so I eat chocolate in some form every single day, whether it’s chocolate chips, a few mini chocolate bars, or a brownie.
How do you wind down and prep for bed?
I love to read and write so I’ll save an hour before bed for those hobbies. I’m currently reading the Sherlock Holmes book series and I’m working on a few short stories, upcoming blog posts and a novel.
Cozy up! What are you wearing for sleep?
I usually sleep in whatever shirt I wore that day! Or, if it was an exceptionally uncomfortable shirt, I’ll put on an old T-shirt. During the summer I like to wear pajama shorts but during the winter I reach for thicker bottoms.
What are some things you must do before hitting the hay?
I brush my teeth, check social media, and put on a good lip balm. If I have something important to do the next day I’ll usually pick out an outfit and make-up as well! I'm a big fan of doing everything I can the day before so that I can sleep in as much as possible!
