My 15 Minute Morning Routine

The time spend in the bathroom before heading out for the day is stripped down to 4 steps or 15 minutes to be exact.
ps: I’m not really a morning person.

I got a lot of questions regarding my personal life so today I’m giving you a glimpse into my everyday morning routine.
Awakened by the rustling movements and the cute but dictatorial whims of my six-month-old baby Jackie Rio around 6.30, my mornings are quite hectic during the week.
The time spend in the bathroom before heading out for the day is stripped down to 4 steps or 15 minutes to be exact.
I have been (trying to be) consistent with this morning routine since her birth.

So let me invite you into my bathroom and give you some insiders scoops on my favourite products.

So y’all thought ‘I woke up like this’
oh hell no!

I take my skincare very seriously.
Establishing a good routine is the most important
thing you can do for your complexion.

When I have more time, I love to pamper my skin with masks, toners and exfoliators, but during the week I usually start with using the Bioderma Hydrabio washing gel to get my skin clean without over-drying it. Then I add a serum to my face (Bioderma Hydrabio) & eyes (Philosophy 'Time in A Bottle').

Serums boost your overall skin health like no other product and are therefore the perfect way to a glowing, radiant look.

Last step is moisturizing with the Decléor Aurabsolu day creme.
A hydrated, moisturized skin is an absolute necessity if you want to create a good base for your make-up.

White teeth make you look younger, fresher and more beautiful.

I’m very strict on my dental hygiene. I had the largest over bite ever when I was 12, so I ended up wearing braces for more than 4 years, ‘cause my momma knew ‘nothing make as big an impact as a beautiful smile’.

You can wear the coolest shoes or carry the latest it-bag, if you’re teeth are stained, your appearance is ruined.

So each day I brush my teeth with the Oral-B 3D White Luxe Perfection toothpaste, followed by the Oral-B 3D White Luxe Accelerator paste.
For an extra fresh feeling I rinse with the Oral-B 3D White Luxe Whitening Mouthwash.

Aiming for the perfect white smile will always be part of my beauty regime.

Make-up wise I prefer a natural look.

To get perfectly even skin and a matte finish, I like to use the Clarins Haute Tenue foundation. Then I add  the YSL Touche Eclat concealer on the undereye circles and blemishes. 

And to define my features, I highlight my nose, chin, forehead and pat everything down with my fingers.

A loose, transparent powder by MUD is used to set my make-up and the brows are filled in with a MUD eyebrow pencil to shape my face.

On the eyes I prefer a classic look with that extra bit of glamour.

So on normal days I use a natural copper/brown eyeshadow by Chanel and a kohl pencil or liquid eyeliner (YSL Couture Kajal) to define my eyes. The cat shape is my favourite.

To give my eyes an extra boost, I apply several layers of 'Le Volume' de Chanel mascara.
Start as close to the roots of your lashes as possible.

With a brush and the Dior blush I sculpt my cheekbones.
On the lips a MAC hydration gel is used.

My hair’s natural texture is dry, wavy with a random curl.
I’ve got it cut into slight layers to bring lightness to my heavy long locks.

I wash it once a week with the Pro Fiber products, daily adding some volume mist by Kerastase and casually brushing it to result into my signature bedhead hair.
