  8. My morning routine is quick, easy and keeps you looking great and refreshed all day long !
    I usually plan my outfit the night before since I’m such a slug every morning.
    I wash my hair every morning with herbal essences hello hydration shampoo and conditioner, it prevents my hair from becoming dry and frizzy. I usually use aveno non perfumed body wash for sensitive skin.
    For morning I wash my face wit neutrogena’s grapefruit face wash.
    I Moisturize my body with aveno’s moisturizer with SPF 15, sunscreen is super important If I want my skin looking younger and healthier when I’m older.
    Since I’m blemish prone, I solugel acne cream on my T-zone. I let my face absorbe all of that while I get dressed, and accessorise. I then apply concealer on my dark circles an my blemish scarred spots, I use a white eyeliner and apply that on my tear duct and my cupids bow, it really bring in the light to my face. I then apply mascara , a bit of beige eyeshadow on my lids and under my eyebrows. I applying trusty lightening powder from Fiji (bought at sephora) and put in on my nose bone, the nose job without the pain and a lot cheaper. The last and most favorite product of all my M.A.C blush it’s called gingerly. It’s perfect for fair skinned women like myself.
    I apply my Valentina by Valentino perfume , put on shoes and I’m out the door !
  9. I wash my face with a moisturizing soap and then I use a quality face cream with a built in SPF to keep wrinkles away! I like a little mascara and lip balm to finish off.
  10. I usually just shower, apply lotion with sunscreen and then apply cover up, foundation creme/powder and mascara. I sometimes add bronzer, eye shadow, eye liner and lipstick to change up my daily routine. My hair routine is generally wash and go, however I sometimes blow dry and actually attempt to style it in some manner.
  11. I brush my teeth, make tea, work out, shower, eat breakfast, brush teeth, dress, organize and hit the road! Every now and then I get up at 4 to do paperwork (crazy hour I know, but very efficient with no interruptions – it works for me!)
