My morning routine- workdays- and Chapter 2 of 7 years younger
Chapter 2 of the program moving right along.
I generally like to get to work at 7:00. This requires I leave home at 6:30, which requires I get up at 5:45a, (and sometimes its not until 6:00a or later) and I realize its not enough time to get ready and it makes following Chapter 2 of 7 Years Younger book (coupled with How Not To Look Old) a little more difficult (Which the book doesn't address). But, I'll admit, my current makeup routine doesn't always have me looking my best.
My current (very quick) makeup routine:
Foundation and matching powder. I use Lancome or Loreal Nearly Naked or Maybelline BB Cream and matching powder. If I'm really in a hurry, I only use the Lancome powder alone.
A quick swirl of blush. Usually Laura Geller Baked Blush in mauve
A swipe of light eyeshadow (Wet 'n Wild in walking on eggshells is my current favorite)
A swipe of eye liner on top only (currently Tarte Amazonian Clay smolder eyes)
Mascara (I LOVE Physician's Formula 100% Natural Organic Mascara my only complaint is I have to use two coats of it)
Lips (usually in the car)
I really like those jumbo pencils of lip color, mainly because you cant make a mistake. Revlon Colorstay (in honey) is my favorite followed by Neutrogena Lip Color stick. I also love Covergirl Outlast in Plum Perfect, and sometimes Revlon Superlustrious lipstick.
Extras that 7 years younger program recommends
Primer (here is a youtube video about who needs a primer)
Nude lip pencil
Teeth whiting at home
Extras that How Not to Look Old recommends
Pink blush (not the mauve I've been using)
Light colored nails (which I am currently clearly not following....)
Now... to reassess my routine and add in some of the suggestions.
Whats your morning routine?
