I am so excited to bring you all my morning routine. It doesn’t really change season to season, so this routine is pretty standard for every single day. For the summer, I am away and living in LA for a month for my summer intensive training, so rather than starting work right away, I’ll be leaving for my intensive classes. Anyways, I’m getting ahead of myself. Let’s begin!
When I first wake up in the morning, it’s usually at 5:30 or 6:00 A.M. and I’ll start by shutting off my alarm and oddly the first thing I do is check my emails. I don’t know why. After shutting off my phone, I’ll turn on some worship music and devote an hour to spending time with God and reading the bible. At the moment I have been reading a lot of Daniel and Matthew, however I’ve also been reading a proverb daily. Starting my day with Jesus is so important and I find a huge difference in my mood and perspective if I don’t spend time with Him.
Around 7:00 A.M. I’ll make my bed and head into the kitchen to make my vitamin cocktail, if you will. I use the Isotonix products and they are so great. My morning cocktail includes the Multi-Vitamin, OPC-3, Calcium Plus, and Advanced B-Complex to give me some extra energy. Once I chug that down, I will make some breakfast and a pot of coffee. This particular day I made cheesy-scrambled eggs and sourdough toast. I would’ve done avocado and put the eggs on top, but I ran out of avocado and I was really sad about it.
After breakfast, I’ll go into the bathroom and do my skincare routine. I use the Skintelligence line and mix it with the Lumiere Di Vie Serum Concentrate, which helps reduce acne, the Lumiere Di Vie Eye Cream, and the Timeless Prescription Anti-Blemish Lotion, which I mentioned in my June Favorites.
After I take a quick shower and get my hair out of the way, I will sit down and do my makeup. I applied my custom blend foundation (link to my second favorite foundation), my Motives Creme Concealer in Peach to my blemishes, my LaLa Liquid Foundation under my cheekbones for a glowy-bronzed look, the Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector to my cheekbones, the Motives Luminous Loose Powder to my t-zone, the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Palette to set my bronzer and highlight, the Motives Pressed Blush to the apples of my cheeks, the Pure Cosmetics Nude Palette (literally the same exact as the Urban Decay Naked 2 palette) to my eyes, the Motives Fiber Lush Mascara to my lashes, the Motives Kohl Liner in my waterline, my BareMinerals Brow Powder and the ABH Clear Brow Gel, and my BareMinerals Gen Nude Liquid Lip Color in Boss to my lips.
I will then take a look at my fragrances and today I picked one of my favorite every-day scents, the Philosophy Pure Grace scent, which smells like fresh morning air mixed with clean laundry. It smells so lovely.
I will then get dressed, and this was my outfit of choice. I will also put on my accessories of choice and then I’m good to go! As I said earlier, I will either start school or work (depending on the day) or, as I am a part of a summer intensive trainer, will leave for training.
That’s it! I hope you guys enjoyed this blogpost. If you would like to watch the routine, the video is linked down below! I love you guys very much, and I hope you have a beautiful rest of your week!
