 I would be lying if I told you that I was naturally a “morning person”, but thru out the years i’ve learned to look forward to this time of day. I’ve always been a bit more creative and free spirited  with life, which induced  me to have the “I’ll do it when I feel like it” syndrome. Now having a business to run, I like to say that i’ve adopted a bit more structure into my life, which by default altered my morning routine.  After one too many times of  hastily rushing out of the house, i’ve adopted a routine that insures me in having a great day.

TIP 1- Plan your outfit in advance.  This tip not only buys you extra time during the mornings, but it also insures you in having  a great outfit for the day.

Mornings are a sacred time for me to reflect on goals, and prepare for the day. I consistently do this over a cup of  Americano coffee (no sugar & no milk). It’s integral to mentally put myself in a positive place, and to have an attitude of gratitude before the day starts.

TIP 2- Set 10 minutes aside for some “YOU” time.

I find comfort in minimalism & simplicity especially when it comes to my daily makeup routine.  Think fresh, lightweight, and dewy. Easily usable & applicable are vital qualities when it comes to make up , as I prefer to spend only 10 minutes or less on my makeup.

TIP 3- Have a simple & easy makeup routine

Ever since I discovered Physicians Formula, i’ve been devoted to their products. My absolute favorites are from the Super BB collection. The most appealing part?  It’s an All-In-1  Beauty Balm, it soothes,moisturizes, protects, firms, fills, primes, conceals, and brightens. Talk about having a 10 step beauty routine in one bottle!

TIP 4-  Find a product that has multiple steps in 1 bottle

As I get older and busier my dark circles have significantly gotten worse. Similar to the BB Cream, this  all-In-1 Concealer not only diminishes my morning puffiness and dark circles, but also brightens my eyes. This is my secret in looking “awake” even on those sluggish mornings.

The Super BB Collection also includes the All-In-1 beauty powder . I usually stay away from powders during the day since I prefer dewy & glowy skin, but this BB powder is extremely weightless and acts as a protective veil from moisture loss so the skin is left smooth, glowy, and flawless. I find myself spending the most time perfecting my skin more than anything else.

Although I love my red lips, there are days when I like to have more of a “natural” look (as seen HERE). On those days I usually stick to either lip tints or lip gloss. I’ve been using the Physician’s Formula  pH Matchmaker lip gloss which is Fluorescein based , and depending on the pH level of your skin the color adjusts within 60 seconds to create your perfect lip color. It also has a LED-powered compact that lights up with a full-size mirror, perfect for last minute morning touch ups!

I’m a fond believer in the saying “How you start something is how you will finish it “. Although I cant insure that everything will go perfectly throughout the day, at least I can always count on my mornings! After all mornings are when we waken from our dreams, to make them into a reality.
