I am the first to admit that my days of having an extensive beauty routine are over as I simply have way too much to do in my day to spend it dealing with a huge arsenal of products. I’m all about a regimen that is quick, simple but most of all, effective. This is what I do in a day…
My morning starts with cleansing my face, applying Elizabeth Arden Advanced Ceramide Capsules Daily Youth Restoring Serum and then finishing with a hydrating moisturiser. I’m all about great skin and the most important step in my skincare regimen, is serum. The Advanced Ceramide Capsules conveniently comes in single-dose capsules which makes it easy to use. It’s highly potent and I’ve found my skin just drinks it up and my complexion has improved as a result. I’m all about great skin so this step is important. Now that Sophia is a little older she loves to watch as I go about my routine so we always spend the morning together as I get ready.
My day is varied so I could be spending it at work one minute, shooting a What I Wore post for the blog or hanging out with the girls the next so my makeup has to be appropriate for several different scenarios. My makeup routine mostly consists of applying a good base then applying eye shadow, eye liner, mascara, then curling my lashes. I also apply a highlighter to my cheekbones to accentuate them. I’ve managed to get this down to as short a time as possible as I need to get out the door fast!
Given I’m all about a quick beauty regimen I’ve managed to whittle down my top shelf beauty products to a few key beauty items – essentially what I can’t live without. What are they? Check out the video below to find out what gets my tick of approval and gets prime position in my beauty collection.
At the end of the day I like to unwind and prep for bed by taking my makeup off then cleansing my skin. I’ll then apply the same Advanced Ceramide Capsules to help my skin restore and replenish overnight. After that it’s lights out in preparation to do it all again the next day!
