Do you girls remember my previous post about this summer beauty box from Target? In the first picture, from left to right, top to bottom, there’s an Olay Active Botanicals Moisturizer and an Olay Active Botanicals Toner that I have been using on a daily basis. Then there’s the Fekkai Pre-Soleil Hair Mist that contains UV filters to protect my hair from sun damage, color fade and dehydration. Next, the Color Girl Supersizer Mascara that I used to create a makeup look in my previous post. Of course then the Crest 3D Whitestrips 1HR Express, which instantly whiten my teeth. Lastly, the Hair Food Moisturizing Mask, which is a moisture hair mask infused with a honey Apricot Fragrance. It not only smells so good, but also provides rich moisture protection for smooth, manageable hair.

Today, I will show you girls a few simple steps, which I go through, to get ready for work in the morning with this Target Beauty Box

Skin Care: Face Wash. Apply the Olay Active Botanicals Toner, followed by the Olay Active Botanicals Moisturizer. Dispense onto my palm and massage onto my face and neck. It provides the necessary hydration throughout the day. 

Makeup: Actually when it comes to work makeup, I always keep it at a minimum. I use BB cream to have some coverage. My work makeup essentials are eyeliner and mascaras. They’re the key to make you look energetic instantaneously in the morning.  So I draw simple eye liner first on the top and bottom of my eye lids, then apply the Cover Girl Supersizer Mascara a few times to add some volume. When you girls use it, it’s best to slightly twirl the lash styler when you apply. It maximizes the result and you can apply as many coats as you want. For my last step with my makeup, I add some matte colored or nude lipstick.

Hair: Most of the time I like to keep my hair straight at work, but sometimes, especially on Fridays, I curl my hair using a curling iron. I normally don’t curl my whole head and focus more on the bottom of my hair. Then I apply the Fekkai Pre-Soleil Hair Mist. It’s really great, especially in the summer now. It’s always important to protect your hair and prevent it from sun damage, color fade and dehydration. 

Outfit: My favorite work outfits are simple and classy dresses for summer. They are so easy to put on in the morning and I can also go to happy hour with these dresses after work. I usually go to work with a day bag, so that I can carry a makeup bag, some work documents, my wallet and everything that I need throughout the day. 

How do you girls get ready in the morning? Do you go through similar steps as me or do you have a very different morning routine compared to me? Don’t forget to check out these great items from the Target Beauty Box and share it with your girls to experiment with during their different morning routines. And of course have fun with it : ) XO
