The AM and PM Routine Tag

I saw the lovely Jaye from Jaye Rockett do this tag and I couldn’t help myself but do my own, its such a fun little tag to read through & I love have a nosy at other peoples daily routines!


01. Whats your morning beauty routine?

So I’m not the best with skincare in the morning, weekdays or weekends. My main concern is what I’m going to eat for breakfast quite frankly haha. However I do apply moisturiser before applying my makeup. If its a weekday where I have college I tend to stick with concealer (my Seventeen Stay Time), a one wash eyeshadows (No7 Shadow Stick in Cool Mink) and then mascara (L’Oreal Volume Million Lashes in Extra Black).

02. Whats for breakfast?

Again this varies from weekday to weekend. On a weekday it has to be cheerios with almond milk! Not the fanciest thing in the world but thats all I really have time for before I go to college. On the weekends its usually either nutella on toast or a croissant with nutella. Kinda a bit obsessed with nutella haha.

03. Coffee or tea?

It has to be tea for me, although I never drink it in the morning. I just can’t stand coffee, I love the smell but the taste is just bitter. Can’t really beat a good cup of tea.

04. How long does it take you to get out the door?

On a weekday when I have college, literally no time at all. I’m up, ready and out the door within 35 minutes because I need my precious sleep. If its a weekend and I’m doing something later in the day it can probably take up to an hour and a half.

05. What is your go to makeup on a fuss free morning?

Firstly my Body Shop Instablur because its a great primer. I’ll probably go for my bareMinerals Complexion Rescue for my base and of course my Seventeen Stay Time concealer after that. For bronzer I’ll most likely use Soap & Glory Solar Powder and for blush Max Factor Creme Puff blush in Seductive Pink. Highlight will probably be Topshop Glow highlighter in Polished. On the eyes I’ll most likely use a mix of my Makeup Geek eyeshadows and theBalm Nude Tude palette. Mascara will be L’Oreal Volume Million Lashes and eyeliner Soap & Glory Smoulder Kohl.


06. What is your evening beauty routine?

If I’ve worn minimal makeup I’ll take it all off with my Garnier Micellar Water, or if I’ve gone for a more heavy makeup look I’ll take it off with my Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish. I’ll then clean my teeth (important step right), then go in with another cleanser. This happens to be my Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Oil-Free Cleanser which just does a brilliant job for me and makes me feel extra clean. I then slap on some moisturiser, I’m currently using La Roche Posay Effaclar H Soothing Moisturiser. Once thats had time to sink in I finish with my Dr IASO AC Booster which is a facial oil and has done wonders for my skin.

07. Snack time! Whats in the bowl?

Most likely chocolate of some sort, lets just say its hardly ever healthy.

08. How do you wind down and prep before bed?

I guess I like to log off my laptop, get into my pyjamas do my whole skincare routine then hop into bed. I have a Q&A a day journal that I like to write in every day so I fill that out. On the rare occasion I’ll read or have a scroll through Tumblr on my phone which is kind of relaxing, looking at pictures haha.

09. Cozy up! What are you wearing to sleep?

I get extremely hot when I’m in bed like I almost overheat, so I just wear an oversized tshirt and some little pyjama shorts to keep my cool.

10. What are some things you must do before hitting the hay?

Well, fill out my Q&A a day journal for sure because I want to keep that up. Always apply my Nuxe Rev de Miel lip balm and apply my Zoella Wonder Hand hand cream. Just so I feel all prepped and moisturised before I hop into bed.

Do you have a morning or evening routine?
