I admit…I’m not the most organized person. I am constantly battling procrastination and figuring out strategies to stay on track. Between work, having a personal life and blogging, it can be a lot to juggle. I try my best to simplify my morning and night time routine because it helps my life flow a little bit easier and helps me get more things done. Check out my easy morning routine for tips that may help simplify yours!
Step 1: Fill in my brows
Step 2: Apply under eye corrector plus spot conceal
Step 3: Add face powder plus a bronze blush for cheeks
Step 4: Use liquid eyeliner for upper lid
Step 5: Add loads of mascara on top and bottom lashes
Step 6: For lips, I literally grab whatever I can find
I usually finish the look with a setting spray to seal everything together. I also forgot to add if you are using powder, I recommend making sure your skin is really moisturized and add a primer.
I find that brows and lashes can make you look done up, when you’re really not! So if anything I try to make sure I fill in my brows and add as mush mascara as possible. I wore lash extensions for a long time and recently decided to give them a break. I must say that when I had the lash extensions and my brows tinted, that cut my routine down in half. For now, I try to give myself a few extra minutes to complete the brow and lash step, especially if I want to look cute that day. On a good day, this routine should take less than 15 minutes.
TAMI’S TIPS: I find anything bronze makes you look more put together as well! So whether it’s a bronze colored blush or eyeshadow, try adding one in for a polished look.
Products I Use:
Gucci Powder Foundation (Couldn’t find on their website) Alternative, MAC Mineralize SkinFinish
My absolute favorite thing to do in the morning is to make a cup of coffee and light a candle. I literally feel super calm after doing this. For some reason lighting a candle helps me feel really zen and luxurious at the same time. Also, I try to add healthy choices to my coffee and switch it up, to give my routine some variety. One week I may add coconut creamer and another a French vanilla creamer with a dash of cinnamon.

Calendar To-Do List
Every night I create a list on my phone of things I need to get done the next day. This can range from calls I need to make, bills I need to pay, or a picture I need to edit. Creating a small list on my phone helps me feel prepared for the next day. When I check this list in the morning, I feel like I have a plan of action for what’s to come.
TAMI’S TIPS: One thing I am still working on is planning what to wear either the night before or a couple of days ahead. Trust me, if you do this it will save you so much time! I am terrible about deciding what to wear the morning of. Usually if I’m rushing in the morning, it’s because I had no clue of what to wear.
Anywho, I hope you enjoyed my morning routine. I will create a night time post soon!
