Morning Routine + Daily Makeup

 I love reading about what skincare routines or morning routines other people have. So I thought I would try to write a post about it myself and share my morning routine + daily makeup! 

I am very lazy in the morning, but I do like to spend some time to take care of my face  - even though it means I have to do it half asleep. 
My morning skincare doesn’t includes a lot of steps, but thought I would share it anyway and also show what makeup I wear on a normal day. 

I start of by splashing my face with cold water. For some odd reason when I wash my face it has to be washed in really cold water. After a few quick splashes on my face I use my cleansing milk. I use the Clarins – cleansing milk with gentian. I find it pretty good and it's smells amazing. 

Then I use the Nivea pure & natural cleansing toner -and I must say - this is the most refreshing product I’ve ever tried! It really smoothens my skin and it smells so refreshing! Also it’s without parabens, which I like since my skin can be a bit sensitive sometimes. Can highly recommend this toner!

Last step is moisturizer. I use the L’Oreal Triple Active Anti-Shine face cream. I don’t really agree with the “anti-shine” part as it leaves my face pretty shiny after I’ve used it. But it’s a really good cream and it helps my dry skin stay more moisturizing and less dry as before I started using this cream.
After the skincare is done, it’s on to the fun part – makeup! Usually on normal days I don’t spend a lot of time on makeup since I somehow always end up being very late in the mornings and have to do everything quite quick. Also when I'm just going to school I don't really bother with putting on loads of products.

I start of by using concealer under my eyes or any other place that need concealer. The concealer I use is a NARS one in the colour Caramel. Then I put on my MAC pressed powder in the number NC55 – to do that I use my Real Techniques buffing brush. For eye shadow i use the Urban Decay Naked 3 palette. I love all the colours, but if I had to choose my favourites are “Burnout”, “Limit” and “Nooner” which also are the colours i normally use. I either use the little eye shadow brush that comes with the palette or the Real Techniques essential crease brush to put it on. I finish of my eyes with putting on my Maybelline The Falsies mascara. Then it's blush time and i use my NARS blush in the colour Dolce Vita which is a dark pink shade, to put it on I use a angled blush brush from Sephora. Then I finish it all of by putting on lipstick. Lately I have been wearing a MAC lipstick in the colour Verve. I love to wear this colour in a normal day since it’s very casual with its brown/red-ish colour.

What are some of the product you just love to wear everyday? :) 

Love, Charlie

  1. I've used so many 'anti-shine' moisturisers that make my face as reflective as a mirror after applying! Now I look for products that don't mention anything about 'anit-shine' as weirdly they make my face much more matte!
