It’s evident that summer is drawing to a close with the influx of over sized jumpers gracing the stores, hazy mornings and the constant need for hot chocolates! I love this transitional stage of the year and I’ve adequately updated my morning routine to suit the new season.
When it comes to skincare I’m deciding to start early with the nourishing products. My skin really suffers with dryness at the slightest hint of cold weather! I’ve switched up my morning skincare routine to using a new dreamy duo from MONUSKIN and I can’t wait to share. The MONU Delicate Facial Wash* is bursting with aromas such as lemon, orange and grapefruit whilst also containing naturally active ingredients such as seaweed and yoghurt. Not only does this wake up my morning skin it restores the balance of cleansed yet hydrated skin with comfort. It’s luxuriously creamy meaning it’s perfect for dry, sensitive skin types!
A couple of times a week I’ll treat my skin to the MONU Hydrating Mask*. I apply the calming treatment to the driest areas first being sure to blend it all over for a natural, well rested glow. The indulgent blend of natural ingredients results in the skin looking super energised and well nourished. This is the dreamiest way to start my post summer morning routine.
When it comes to makeup I’ve been really enjoying keeping my base super simple with the Armani Luminous Silk Foundation and the Nars Copacabana Illuminator combined. The coverage is beautiful with the most enviable post summer glow. I can’t go a day without using the Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer to brighten under my eyes. As always I use the Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara to lengthen my lashes and add volume. I love keeping the eyes and skin neutral so I can go a bit bolder on the lips. It’s slightly too early for an autumnal berry so I’ve been combining MAC’s Twig Lipstick with the Soap and Glory Mother Pucker Lipstick in ‘Love and O-Beige’ for a beautiful pre-autumn nude.
Of course no post summer morning routine would be complete without a delicious comforting breakfast! I try to always take the time to make something from scratch like a bowl of hot cinnamon porridge with a cup of tea!
