First, I wake up and take care of my pups
I usually start the day by letting my dogs out to go potty and drinking a bottle of water. I always wake up hungry and eat breakfast right away (I’m a monster until I eat in the morning). Today I decided to make some gluten-free pancakes, turkey bacon and two over easy eggs. Mmmmm 🙂
When I have a little more time to shower I’ll use a mask to deep condition my hair and a sugar scrub to exfoliate my body. I exfoliate my whole body with the scrub then lather body wash to shave my legs with.
I use a men’s razor because I find I get a closer, smoother shave. I’ll leave my hair mask in while I shave, rinsing it out at the end of my shower. I usually wash my face in the shower once I’m done getting all the product out of my hair. See this blog post for more information about my skincare routine!
After I’m done showering I immediately blow dry my lashes on a low-heat setting. The lady who does my lashes taught me this trick for removing the water as quickly as possible and I find it works really well!
I then moisturize my body with The Righteous Body Lotion and take my hair down to brush and dry.
I don’t usually style my hair, today I just put a little bit of Biosilk in it to detangle and brushed it with my Tangle Teaser brush, letting it dry naturally. Sometimes I curl it with a 1″ curling iron but realistically, I don’t very often.
Let me be honest, I don’t always wear makeup on my days off or even days when I work. I find I wear it a lot less now that I have eyelash extensions. My favorite part of having them is skipping mascara! I have very watery eyes and mascara tends to run when I wear it. Eyelash extensions make me feel put together as soon as I wake up even without any other makeup.
If I were going to apply makeup it would be a look using only a few products like the one below. I like to keep it simple 🙂
First, I used Benefit’s Hydrating Crease-Control Concealer under my eyes and blended it in with my ring finger. I then followed up with the Maybelline Fit Me Concealer in shade 10 Light around my nose using my foundation brush from It Cosmetics to blend. Lastly, I applied Benefit’s High Beam highlighter on my cheek bones and the bridge of my nose.
Here’s the finished makeup look:
I love wearing white and other light colors on my days off since I work with food and don’t want to ruin my nicer clothing. Today I chose a cream and white flannel I bought at TJ Max, along with a long white tank top, gray leggings, and these cute Ugg boots that I love!
I tend to buy a lot of my clothes off of Poshmark or at second hand stores! I linked what I could find above!
