My AM/PM Routine

I don't know about you but I love watching people's routine videos on YouTube and reading their blog posts as I think I'm really just nosey as to how people organise their mornings/evenings. I think it also prompts me to become more organised in my daily routines (mine do slip from time to time) by seeing how other people organise theirs! I tend to stick to a routine probably about 50% of the time and I find that if I don't stick to some form of routine, my mornings/evenings just become a complete mess and I end up just watching Netflix for hours! That being said I saw Sally from The Makeup Directory post about her AM/PM routine in the form of a tag post and I really wanted to try it out and do my own as I am not skilled enough to film a routine video for my YouTube channel!

What is your morning beauty routine?
In the morning I try as much as possible to do my skincare routine as soon as I get up (this doesn't always happen), at some point during the morning I will make sure I wash my face with my Magnitone facial cleansing brush, I then let my hair air dry and just my usual skincare products for moisturising and fighting spots.

What's for breakfast?
I don't tend to eat the exact same thing from breakfast but it's normally either fruit, porridge, cereal or toast.

Coffee or Tea?
I don't know why but I always have to have a cup of tea every morning when I wake up as my first drink. I have tried the whole glass of water when you first get up and it legit makes me sick. I also never feel like coffee first thing, no matter how tired I am, so I tend to stick to tea in the morning to help me feel more human again! 

How long does it take to get you out the door?
I don't know why I do this but for the longest time I have always given myself exactly a hour to get ready before I have to leave (excluding a shower/bath) and it's exactly how much time I need to do my makeup, basic hair (I basically run a brush through my hair) and get dressed.

What is your go-to makeup look on a fuss-free morning?
I tend to go for a fresh complexion (foundation, concealer & powder), filled in eyebrows and just mascara.

What is your evening beauty routine?
Mine is literally the exact same as my morning routine, with just the addition of evening products (moisturiser & oil). Not going to lie sometimes I am just truly lazy and just about get my makeup off my face, sometimes I am just too lazy/tired to do that!

Snack time ~ What is in the bowl?
I don't tend to snack after dinner but if I do have something it will either be fruit, ice cream or a home-made treat!

How do you wind down and prep for bed?
I tend to love lying in bed watching random videos on YouTube (primarily ones from BuzzFeed) until I naturally become sleepy.

Time to cosy up ~ What are you wearing to sleep?
What I wear to bed completely depends on how hot/cold is, but I always wear full pjs to bed, some of my sets just have shorts instead of trousers.

What are some things you must do before going to sleep?
I don't think I have anything that I must do before I go to sleep. I always tend to have a cup of tea then brush my teeth, but I'm not fussed if I don't get to that!

I'd love for you all to do this tag as well and leave me your links for them below so I can read your morning & night time routines!

Speak to you next time!
