The AM PM Routine Tag

Before we get into the tag, I have to thank Kiran from ALITTLEKIRAN for tagging me to do this post. I don't normally do tags, mostly because I think my answers will be quite boring compared to others, but I didn't want to let Kiran down! I loved Kiran's post and if you'd like to read about her daily beauty routine click here - http://www.alittlekiran.co.uk/2016/04/the-am-pm-routine-tag-alittlekiran_20.html



AM

What is your morning beauty routine?
My first step is to have a shower. Clean body = clean mind! Then I moisturise with L'occitane Almond Milk Veil, cleanse my face with Oskia Renaissance Cleansing Gel and brush my teeth with the Oral B 3D White Luxe Perfection Toothpaste. I then complete my skincare routine and put on some makeup if I can be bothered. 

What is for breakfast?
I know you're supposed to eat breakfast every day without fail, but sometimes I wake up and just don't feel hungry. If I do fancy something it tends to be proper porridge/oatmeal with honey and berries or boiled egg and toast. I like to have a hot drink as well, especially if I didn't eat. 

Tea or Coffee?
Both! Picking just one would be like picking a favourite Pixiwoo sister, I just can't do it. I love tea, in the morning, at night, Indian tea, English Breakfast tea, it's just one of those things I can't be without. If you ever kindly make me a cup of tea, make sure you boil the kettle twice... I'll know if you didn't.
 Some mornings I can't function without a cup of joe. I like the Nescafe Azera Americano Instant Coffee. I also adore Turkish coffee in the evenings. I'm not big on cappuccinos and espressos but I do have a soft spot for milky lattes... Mmm

How long does it take you to get out of the door?
If we're talking start to finish (shower,skincare,makeup) an hour, hour and a half? I know, I know, thats really bad, but I hate feeling rushed when I'm getting ready. I end up sweating my makeup off and getting very annoyed. Not a pretty sight. 
If it's past midday and I'm just popping out, I can be ready in 10 minutes. 

What is your go-to makeup look on a fuss free morning?
I try to stick to 3 easy steps. My first and main priority is to even out my skin and get it looking healthy and glowy. For this, I swear by the Estee Lauder Enlighten EE Cream. Then I'll brush a small amount of tinted brow gel through the girls. The one I've been loving recently is the NYX Tinted Brow Mascara - Brunette. Lastly I apply some kind of lip product, it might be a tinted lip balm or if I'm feeling sassy, a liquid lipstick. 



PM

What is your evening beauty routine?
On an average evening, I will double cleanse with something like Sarah Chapman Skinesis Ultimate Cleanse (click here for full review) or Emma Hardie Moringa Cleansing Balm. Then I carry on with an acid toner, hydrating spritz, eye cream, serum and moisturiser/overnight mask. Yep, that's an average night for me. 

Snack time! What's in the bowl?
This might be a bit of an unexpected answer, but my favourite thing to snack on recently is Cacik and Pitta Bread. I tend to fancy savoury over sweet and this hits the spot! For those wondering, Cacik is a Turkish dip made with yoghurt, mint, garlic and cucumber. Homemade or shop bought, you just can't beat it. 

How do you wind down/prep for bed?
I'll finish my hot chocolate, brush my teeth and apply some hand cream. Just before I get into bed I like to spray my pillow with Caudalie Beauty Elixir. It adds that extra touch of relaxation and the scent really calms me. Then I set my alarm, get comfy with Hubby and watch some Family Guy and American Dad.

Cosy up! What are you wearing to sleep?
Plain white t-shirt and soft cotton pyjama bottoms/shorts. 

What are some of the things you must do before hitting the hay?
I always double check that I've set my alarm and I'll always tell Hubby I love him before I turn over. 

I would love to know what your AM/PM beauty routine is, so please feel free to do this tag and let me know you've done it so I can have a read! Thanks so much for reading and I hope you enjoyed learning a bit more about me and my habits.
