In a perfect world, I’ll wake up with enough time to eat a hearty breakfast, maybe get a workout in and start the day off the right foot.
In reality I’m a girl who likes to hit the snooze button. In order to leave the house resembling a functioning adult, I’ve mastered the perfect 20 minute beauty routine encompassing skincare, hair, and makeup. Boss, right?!
I look for products—especially skincare—that have multiple benefits. I want it all. When Clinique reached out to partner around their new Pep-Start Eye Cream I knew I needed it in my life. The plastic tip allows for an easy application and the product itself hydrates, brightens and moisturizes. TRIPLE DUTY BEAUTY BABY!!
As a self professed beauty obsessed woman, I love how quickly the product sinks into the skin making my concealer application process super smooth. I hate waiting for products to absorb. Ain’t nobody got time for that!
To celebrate the launch, Clinique hosted a Daybreaker morning dance party and if you haven’t heard of Daybreaker, stop what you’re doing and check it out now! The most fun I’ve ever had before noon.
If you need a pep start to your morning but you’re pressed for time, here are a few trips courtesy of someone who wastes most of her morning scrolling Instagram and snapchat:
- Get the right skincare. Pep-Start has been my go-to. It’s easy to apply and actually does what it claims. Great skin means you can run out the door worry-free.
- Find your perfect no makeup, makeup look. For me it’s foundation to even out my skin tone, concealer to hide my dark circles, mascara to awaken my eyes and lipstick so people aren’t focused on my dark circles. Save the contouring for Friday night.
- Create the perfect morning playlist. I kid you not, getting ready to music is better than a workout. Have some really fun music that makes you dance (but not sweat your makeup off dance, y’know?). You’ll get a boost of energy out of nowhere.
- Lastly, coffee. Obviously.
Clinique’s new Pep-Start Eye Cream is available in Sephora and Sephora.com. Get it.
