Get Ready With Me (And Target!)

My morning routine is the exact same every day — I have it down to a science. I give myself exactly one hour to get out the door, which I’ve learned over the years is the perfect amount of time to get ready without rushing. First things first, right when my alarm goes off in the morning, I say good morning to the boyfriend, check social media and delete emails. Then, I roll out of bed, grab a fresh glass of OJ and hop into the shower.

In terms of products, I keep things easy and quick on work days, so I need quality products that last through a long work day and drinks afterwards. First, this SheaMoisture Renewal System Shampoo is just what my hair needs to feel rejuvenated for a new day. Then, my new Neutrogena Hydro Boost Gel Cream leaves the area underneath my eyes feeling cool (but without that oily residue that I hate).


Once I’ve done the majority of my makeup, I spritz some L’Oréal Infallible Pro-Spray & Set on my face — it ensures that my minimal makeup stays on all day long (and I have to tell you — this has quickly become my favorite product to use. Two little spritzes and I’m out the door with my makeup lasting 12+ hours!).


Then, I focus on my hair. Most days, I opt for bone straight, but TRESemmé’s TRES Two Extra Hold Hairspray keeps my straight hair looking voluminous and full while I’m running around town shooting photos or sitting in the office all day.


Lastly, I always throw on a lip shade before I walk out the door. Right now, I’m really loving Maybelline’s Color Elixir Lip Color— the hue is so perfect for everyday wear and I love how the product isn’t too sticky like some other glosses!


Once my beauty routine is done (all in all, showering, makeup and hair takes about 30-40 minutes for me, depending on how lazy I’m feeling that morning), it’s on to the tough decisions — what to wear. My closet tip for getting out the door in a hurry? If you can’t decide, narrow it down to two pieces and then follow you gut. I always narrow my choices down to two — two tops, two pairs of pants, two shoes, whatever it may be — and then, depending on my mood, pick from there. And then — voilá — the finished look comes together!
