Sifting through the continual amount of makeup in my beauty drawer, I can’t help but realize how mundane my beauty routine has become.  I can probably apply my makeup with my eyes closed (but of course you wouldn’t want to do that…).  

It’s always the same thing weekday mornings: Wake up, groggily shut off the hallway night light, wake up kids for school, brush teeth, wash face, moisturize w/sunscreen, wake up kids again, and again, and again (with my voice having lowered a hundred decibels and almost similar to Batman), get breakfast ready, make lunches (if I forgot to the night before), dress up in something comfortable yet presentable, put my “face” on which consists of concealer, mascara, cream blush and a lipgloss, get kids eating breakfast and out the door in time to catch the first school bell (earlier on good days).

As we shift towards a new season, much like the clothing, outerwear and home decor, I like to   revamp and make way for the fresh period among us.  All the pink lipsticks and shimmery body bronzers slowly make their way to the back and out come the plums, reds and nudes.  Of course, to revive my routine, I always ensure I keep up-to-date on what’s au courant in the beauty world.  

There is one place that I frequent often for everything I need from a new lipstick to a package of chewy candies to bandaids or cold meds — Shoppers Drug Mart.  It’s where I go often for most of my beauty products. In fact, I think my local SDM Beauty Counter Cosmetologist knows me on a first-name basis.

  6. My routine is simple. With winter coming I will need change it up to nourish my skin a bit more as it tends to get more dry.

  7. My routine is to wash and dry my hair and moisturize. It needs a change because it’s very basic and doesn’t change with the seasons like it should.

  8. I’m in school part-time now, along with full-time work, and need to simplify my morning & night routine without affecting quality. Need some 4-in-1 or 3-in-1 products that are still as good as the targeted/specialty ones!

  9. I don’t have a beauty routine. Pioneering the #nomakeup phenomenon. Lol. Could use a new moisturizing and exfoliating program.

  10. I wash my face with water and only use moisturizer. The change I could use would be the addition of an eye cream to protect them.

  15. I don’t wear as much makeup as I used too! I have been wanting to try the new Life Brand facial masks for my parched skin! 🙂
