Morning Helpers: My Top Five Quick Product Picks

Getting ready for work in the morning is a race against time for me. I am the opposite of a morning person and so I will sleep in every possible second I can. This leaves me scrambling to get ready for the day and look professional in a matter of 5-10 minutes. I've really gotten a good routine down so that I can actually get my hair and basic makeup done in around ten minutes. So I figured today I would share with you some of my favorite products which make that rush in the morning just a little bit more do-able.

Morning Products
Olay BB Cream Skin Perfecting Tinted Moisturizer with Sunscreen has a really nice texture to it and applies really evenly. Since it is a BB cream and has a little bit less coverage than a foundation, I can really apply it quickly and not have to worry as much about blending this in perfectly. Since it has sunscreen in it, it cuts out some time especially in warmer weather.

Philip Kingsley One More Day Dry Shampoo is a dry shampoo packed full of soothing ingredients such as Zinc PCA, Allantoin and Bisabolol that cleanse the scalp; eradicating excess dirt, oil and odour, whilst helping to keep flakes and irritation at bay. This really helps if I wasn't able to wash my hair the night before. I just spray some in and brush it through and my hair really looks refreshed.

Lancome Artliner is the perfect liquid eyeliner for precision looks. I've tried a lot of liquid liners and the one that I've used nearly every single day for the past couple of years is Lancome's Art Liner in Aubergine. The design of the applicator and handle just make applying liquid liner a breeze.

Bioelements Recovery Serum has a thick consistency to it and a clear appearance. However, when applied to the skin it soaks in almost immediately and leaves skin feeling moisturized. I have needed this so much in the morning since my dry skin has been even dryer lately with the freezing temperatues. In a rush, this cuts down my skincare to just 1 product! This doubles a makeup primer, cutting out yet another product! 

Conair 1 1/2 inch curling iron sounds like it would actually add time to my morning routine, but it has been saving my mornings. I usually shower at night and so in the morning my naturally curly hair usually looks like a poodle's. I don't have the time to straighten my hair and if I straighten it at night, I usually spend 10 minutes re-straightening it in the morning. When I reach for my large barrel curling iron however, I can curl some larger sections and then shake out the curls for a loose curled look in little to no time. I'm working on putting together a full post on this, so stay tuned. This has really been my favorite tool in the morning.
