The leaves are crisp, the mornings are chilly and getting up in the morning is that little bit harder than usual. Autumn mornings for me are either horrible, I’m tired and cranky or they are great, I’m awake, active and ready to go. I would prefer to be more awake and prepared for the day ahead. This means getting a different morning routine than in the Summer and trying to enforce it upon myself.
To start the morning, something to make you feel more awake, would be light exercise. I love yoga and its gentle exercise, so doing this is perfect. It doesn’t get you all sweaty and horrible, you also feel relaxed and happy after. I always go for Tara Stiles, find her YouTube channel [here], she is amazing. I also try to do half an hour or more, on my exercise bike.
With the coldness and weather change, it can affect our skin and dry it out terribly. I like to change to a very hydrating moisturiser to help my skin get re-hydrated so I’ve been using my Boots Vitamin E Day Cream, you can feel your skin become hydrated almost instantly. I’ve been using my MUA blush in Glowing Shade 11, I’ve found this to be a lovely dark, yet neutral colour which also slightly contours my cheeks. Another great product I’ve been loving for the Autumn mornings is my Rimmel Stay Matte Powder. My skin hasn’t been great lately, so I’ve been opting for lighter foundations on my skin, something not so thick and cakey. This powder has made all the difference and helped my skin look better. My other loves, you might of guessed is lipsticks, I have been loving these two in particular, a beautiful nude shade in Fawn from Topshop and my Avon lipstick in Intimate. The Avon one is a warm lilac colour, which I feel really compliments my complexion and is a bit different.
What are you guys using in this cold mornings?
