The AM & PM routine tag!

Thursday, May 19, 2016

I was doing a little Bloglovin' browsing the other day when I came across this interesting tag over on The Makeup Directory and felt like giving it a go.


1. What is your morning beauty routine?
I usually wash my face the night before then use the B. Pure micellar water when I wake up to just wipe away any excess oil. I then put on a light coating of Superdrug's Vitamin E moisturising day cream.

2. What's for breakfast?
Usually cereal because it's quick and easy. If I have work or I'm off out for the day, I'll eat something decent and relatively healthy like Bran Flakes or Weetabix, but if not I'll grab whatever I fancy whether it's healthy or not, usually chocolate flavoured cereal or a bagel.

3. Coffee or tea?
Neither! I've worked in coffee shops since I was 19 but I'm not a coffee drinker at all, can't stand the stuff. The smell I can live with, but nah I'm more of an orange juice/iced water kinda gal.

4. How long does it take you to get out the door?
Not long, if I'm getting ready for work or to nip out for an hour it takes me about 15 minutes but that's because I hardly wear any make-up and I usually have an outfit ready. When I'm off work I'll put a bit more effort into my make-up and clothing and play around with my look more. But yeah, most days I can pretty much roll out of bed and leave the house straight up, no hassle.

5. What is your go to makeup look on a fuss-free morning?
Primer, concealer (this or this depending on how I feel), blush, eyebrows (this and this), and lip balm. I only occasionally wear highlighter and mascara, and I only wear lipstick/gloss when I'm not working.


1. What is your evening beauty routine?
I wash my face with Superdrug's Vitamin E hot cloth cleanser then moisturise with the night cream. If I have any dry skin patches or dry spots on my face I'll apply some Weleda Skin Food for intense moisture. It's quite heavy so I prefer to put it on at night.

2. Snack time! What’s in the bowl?
I'm obsessed with Lotus Biscoff biscuits and Yeo Valley yoghurts for kids because they don't have bits in them and they actually taste like real fruit and not flavourings. So I'm eating a lot of those recently. I also really like Onken vanilla yoghurt and Galaxy counters if I'm in a chocolate mood.

3. How do you wind down and prep for bed?
If I haven't already, I usually have a bath then get into some clean pyjamas. The heat from the bath puts me in sleep mode, especially if I've used a nice scented bath bomb. I'm a heavy sleeper so getting to sleep is never a problem, even if I've been staring at a computer all night. Once I'm laying down and my eyes are shut that's it, I'm dead to the world. However on the rare occasion I do struggle to nod off, I put something boring on TV or put some lavender drops on my pillow.

4. Cosy up! What are you wearing to sleep?
Mismatching pyjamas or a pair of joggers and an old top. I'm not fancy in the slightest. I like to spend as little on pyjamas as possible, even though I spend 99% of my time in them. I just like to be comfy so I don't care what my pyjamas look like, so long as they fit me and are comfortable to sleep in I'm alright.

5. What are some things you must do before hitting the hay?
Check Instagram and Twitter a million times over and make sure I've taken all my tablets.
