I never feel like I have enough time in the mornings to actually put myself together for work. Between getting myself ready, feeding the dog and getting Brooklyn up and to daycare, I feel like my mornings are in full overdrive.
My morning routine looks something like this:
5:40am – alarm goes off & shower
6am – make breakfast and watch the news
6:20am – blow dry my hair, get dressed and put on makeup
6:45am – get Brooklyn up, get her dressed & feed her (Charlie leaves for work right around now)
7:15am – leave to take Brooklyn to daycare
7:30am – come back home, grab my work bag and hop in the car to head to work
Just typing out my schedule makes me tired! I really don’t have much time to spare in the mornings and I need a beauty routine that is quick but still allows myself to feel put together and presentable.
I love my Bare Minerals bronzer (it’s sold out now, but I also love NARS bronzer) and Bobbie Brown blush. Together, the bronzer and blush give me the perfect amount of color since I haven’t seen in the sun since my last vacation back in December!
I swear I have had this eyeliner for about a year…it never runs out! It gives you the perfect line that lasts all day and doesn’t smudge. This is hands down my favorite mascara. It stays on all day, doesn’t clump and really opens up your eyes (which is important when you’re not getting enough sleep!)
Most days I throw on this lipstick from MAC. I’ve been really into nude colors lately and this shade (blankety) doesn’t make you look too washed out. I usually get my brows tinted when I get them waxed but lately i’ve been really bad about scheduling my regular 4-5 week appointments. Between tints, I love to use this brow pencil.
