3 Life-Changing Beauty Hacks for A Busy Morning

Hello, lovelies!

If you’re prone to sleeping past your alarm, you may feel that you don’t have enough time to engage in your regular beauty routine each morning. If pressed for time in the morning, I like to make changes to my routine. Here are a few simple tips you can use to simplify your beauty routine in the AM:

1. Highlight and contour in one step 

To highlight your face, apply concealer in a “3” motion. Using a concealer that is lighter than your skin tone, draw the top line above your browbone, the middle line above your cheekbones, and bottom line right above your jawline. To contour your face, apply bronzer in a backward “3” motion. Blend the highlight and contour together for a seamless finish.

2. Moisturize while you sleep 

If your skin is feeling extra dry, apply your moisturizer before bed. Applying moisturizer before bed allows the lotion to absorb into your skin, and it eliminates one step from your morning.

3. Simplify your makeup routine 

I enjoy applying makeup each morning, but sometimes there just isn’t time. Pick 3-4 products that you use daily, and apply those each morning. I often use concealer, mascara, and a red lipstick for a simple, easy makeup look.

How do you simplify your beauty routine during a busy morning?

Back to Blogging: Why I Took a Break

Hello, lovelies!

Welcome back to my blog! I haven’t been very active online this year, and plan to return to my regular blogging schedule. Before I publish new product reviews and content, I’ll explain why I disappeared:

My Internship

I began my four-month long internship in January. This is the last semester of my social work program and I’ve devoted a lot of time to the internship. It involved a new schedule and activities that I had to become familiar with. Maintaining a regular blogging schedule was not easy!

Illness

2018 definitely came in with a bang. I ended up catching the flu more than once, which required time to recover from. I desperately wanted to continue blogging while I was ill, but resting was my top priority.

My daily schedule is regular, and I’ve devoted specific times to write new blog posts each week. I’m excited to welcome everyone back into my blogging space!

REVIEW: Tatcha Water Cream Moisturizer

Hello, lovelies!

One of my skin care resolutions for this year is to consistently apply moisturizer. I received a sample of Tatcha’s Water Cream Moisturizer and was eager to try it on my dry winter skin.

What is it?

This moisturizer is an oil-free water cream. It releases skin-improving Japanese nutrients and botanicals for a hydrated complexion.

The Packaging

The product comes in a gorgeous pale-blue container. It features the Tatcha logo in luxurious gold-writing. A gold-coloured bow sits atop the cover.

The Moisturizer

It is a lightweight, creamy moisturizer. When applied to the skin, the product dries quickly without leaving a residue. The moisturizer smells faintly of Jasmine and fresh roses.

How to use it

Gently massage the cream into the skin on your face and neck.

Tatcha’s The Water Cream is a soothing, creamy moisturizer. It retails for $82 at Sephora.
