I’ve always been intrigued of other people’s morning routines, the products they use, and the steps they take before leaving the house. Why? I have no idea, a part from the fact that it weirdly fascinates me! Today I’m sharing my morning make-up routine and the essential beauty products I swear by for natural every-day make-up. 

Let’s be real here, no one wakes up ready to start the day with glowing and fresh skin… Well I don’t anyway! Actually I’m far from it, so I need all the help I can get. One of the most important steps in my beauty routine is thoroughly cleansing my skin with a lightweight cream cleanser (I’m currently using the Alpha Balancing Cleanser) before applying an oil free moisturiser (I use Neutrogena). I’ve said it many times and I will say it again, looking after your skin will create the base for flawless make-up. 

I recently switched to the Nars tinted moisturiser as opposed to foundation, not only does it give me a natural complexion (which I love!), but it means I’m not consistently clogging my pores. I use a cream blush from M.A.C and the Nars ‘laguna’ bronzer for my cheeks, and then set my whole face with the Nars translucent powder. Lastly I fill in my brows, give my lashes a couple of coats of mascara, and add a touch of nude lipstick.

My daily routine takes me an average of 15 minutes, I mean CBF doing the whole contour and highlight thing in the morning, I would much rather spend the extra minutes in bed! 

My Hero Products:

Nars Tinted Moisturiser

Nars Laguna Bronzer

Nars translucent powder

Hourglass eyebrow pencil
