Get Up and Go

I’m up nice and early for a special shoot today, makes a change from the office – woo (will spill the deets when I can, and no doubt be posting some sneak peeks on my Instagram ‘GlossAndMagic’), so need to look presentable. That means hair washed and brushed *groan*, a nice fresh base for makeup and a non-chipped mani – all things that have usually slipped by the wayside by a usual Saturday morning. So last night I entered SOS mode and a post on that routine will be up this weekend, but today I thought I’d share my morning regime to get me looking at least half decent to be thrusted in front of a camera or any other day for that matter…

Hair first and I’m keeping it simple. I flit between my clarifying shampoos and the Aaranyaa Argan Shampoo, today’s pick which I use when my hair isn’t looking too oily. Then for conditioner I’m using the Bed Head Urban Antidotes Recovery Conditioner* – so far, so good. It smells incredible, like all other Bed Head products and the cream-like consistency doesn’t weigh my locks down. After slathering on my ‘Triple Threat Facial‘ routine last night my skin ain’t looking too bad this morning, so a quick massage and cleanse off with the Olay Regenerist Cream Cleanser gets me started. Then go back and apply a layer of BB cream (ah yes, I’m going for some seriously pumped up, plump skin here) – this time the Revlon Photoready BB Cream (duh!), for a bit of tint and glow.

Makeup is a whole different story, but I couldn’t leave the house without a curl of the lashes and some balm, a little of the Maybelline Baby Lips in Berry Crush will do for today. So wish me luck! ‘Break a leg’ and all that 😉
