7:00 a.m. As soon as I wake up, I check my phone! Such a bad habit. Then I take a really long shower.
8:00 a.m. I’m a beauty minimalist, so my morning skincare consists of moisturizer, eye cream, and body lotion. Then, I’ll use a little concealer, minimal eye makeup, and either a lip balm or a fun bold lip. I like to play around and improvise, especially with new samples I receive in my Birchbox.
8:15 a.m. I either let my hair air-dry wavy, or I straighten with a flat iron. Either way, I use hair oil to keep my hair smooth.
1:00 p.m. After lunch, I’ll usually spritz or dab on a fragrance. It’s a little aromatherapy pick-me-up, and I can always find a new one to try on someone’s desk. (Just today I came across L’Occitane’s Jasmin & Bergamote!)
7:00 p.m. If I have plans in the evening, I’ll head over to Mollie’s desk and play with whatever products she left there. Otherwise, I usually head home for takeout with my boyfriend.
12:10 a.m. My nighttime routine is easy: wash, moisturize, done. That said, Katia recently gave me some Furlesse line-reducing patches to test for the Birchbox Shop. They’re like a face retainer—when I have them on, I furrow my brow less and also feel more relaxed. Frownies® Eye Gels are also really soothing.
5:30 a.m. I’m up bright and early, computer open and emailing right away. For breakfast I’ll have raisin toast, or sometimes an egg and avocado sandwich (with lots of hot sauce).
7:30 a.m. I have my morning makeup routine down to a science: Jouer’s Luminizing Moisture Tint, Benefit brow gel, Eyeko Skinny Liquid Eyeliner, Benefit They’re Real Mascara, and stila Convertible Color Blush.
1:30 p.m. Before afternoon meetings, I freshen up my hair with a dry shampoo—Oscar Blandi Pronto Dry Shampoo is a favorite right now. The powder formula works really well with my bangs.
12:30 a.m. I use an oil cleanser before bed at night—it’s great for keeping dry skin balanced—and Kiehl’s Powerful Wrinkle Reducing Eye Cream.
6:00 a.m. I’m a morning person, and I love exercising before work. I go to Equinox because they have the best group fitness classes and Kiehl’s products.
7:30 a.m. I can get in and out of the gym locker room in 20 minutes flat (helps me get to my favorite meal of the day faster!). After the shower, I slather Kiehl's Creme de Corps on my body and apply a face oil (currently in l-o-v-e with Caudalie Divine Oil). For makeup, I mix together Marcelle's BB Cream in Golden Glow with Jouer Luminizing Moisture Tint for a sheer base, then dab on plenty of cream blush. Two coats of mascara, and that’s it. For hair, I scrunch in SHU UEMURA Art of Hair Angora Mousse and then rough blow dry, concentrating on my bangs.
11:30 a.m. I love using hydrating wipes to clean my face or hands as a midday refresher (on my desk currently: Yes To™ Blueberries Brightening Facial Towelettes).
7:30 p.m. Before heading out to meet friends, I always throw on a little undereye brightener! It's clutch. I am addicted to Benefit's Ooh La Lift.
11:30 p.m. I take my makeup off with a gentle cleanser like EVE LOM Cleanser, then I sometimes follow with an exfoliator. I always forget eye cream in the morning, but I'm religious about it at night: Right now I'm using Elizabeth Dehn for One Love Organics' balm-like eye cream. I finish with a hefty amount of face oil.
