So, you aren’t exactly a morning person. How about a quick and easy morning beauty routine that suits everyone? Yes, it can be done.
Now that fall has arrived and that summer vibe is officially history, mornings take on a new feel too. You are still rushing to get out the door, but a quick layer of sunscreen and a little mascara may no longer be doing the trick.
No matter your level of makeup love, there are certain beauty items that every woman needs to get herself ready in the morning. Gather your favorite essentials and you are off to a great start. What you put on after that is up to you.
Beauty Essentials for An Easy Morning Beauty Routine
Moisturize Starting with clean skin, moisturizing is key. Skin that is properly hydrated looks perky and healthy. Choose the right moisturizer for your skin and don’t miss out on the benefits of this super important step.
A lightweight moisturizer, like Acure Organics Oil Control Facial Moisturizer is great for those with oily or acne prone skin.
Those with normal, dry, or mature skin types will benefit from a facial oil. Add a drop or two to of RMS Beauty Oil to your usual moisturizer for suppleness and glow.
Sunscreen Yes, everyone needs daily sun protection. Making this a part of your regular routine is the best way to ward off UV damage.
Ilia Sheer Vivid Tinted Moisturizer provides both coverage and sun protection in one.
For translucent protection that works seamlessly under makeup, try Kypris Beauty Pot of Shade Heliotropic.
Concealer We can all stand a bit of concealer in just the right places. Under eyes, around the nose, and any blemishes or areas that tend toward redness are easily erased with a good concealer.
RMS Beauty “Un” Cover-Up is a light and creamy blend, ideal for those with dry skin or looking for lighter coverage.
For dark circles and red zones, Vapour Organic Beauty Illusionist Concealer can’t be beat for long lasting coverage.
Foundation If you are a true foundation lover, no tinted moisturizer will live up to your expectations. Go for coverage that is light and buildable. This provides a natural look that is easy to apply.
Ilia Beauty Vivid Foundation offers light coverage with a featherweight feel.
For those who prefer more coverage, opt for the creamy, dreamy Kjaer Weis Cream Foundation.
Powder For the finishing touch, a dab of powder does the trick. Remember, going overboard with this step adds years to skin and creates an unnatural look. Apply powder with a light touch, using a brush, to areas that tend to become greasy…forehead, bridge of nose, and chin.
Use Alima Pure Satin Finishing Powder to tone down glare in a barely-there formula. Super sheer and lightweight.
For those with oily skin, RMS Beauty “Un” Powder will zap greasiness before it even has a chance to appear.
That’s it. Your morning beauty routine made easy. Now choose your color cosmetics, or not, and off you go.
