I love reading which products people reach for in the morning and have wanted to do this post since I started the blog. As my skin is being annoying at the moment I have been reaching for my YSL foundation to give me that little extra bit of coverage. Apart from that the only other product I have been changing around recently has been my lip colour. I have a wide assortment of lip offerings to choose from and the colour really is dependent on my mood. I have also added in the Bourjois Healthy Balance Powder in 53 as I normally take that to school with me as the By Terry will welcome me with a cloud of powder after it has been knocking about my bag all day and it is far too expensive to waste! Although I am still enjoying this powder (see post here) I want to add that whilst it does blur any imperfections it does leave a very matt finish, which might not be to everybody's taste. For me by the time I have walked the 35 minutes to school some glow is starting to shine back through anyway. Nice. Some of these products have been absolutely loved and I will definitely give those beauties a more in depth mention at a later date. 

Which products do you reach for in the morning? 


  1. Cant survive a winter without eight hour cream :)

  2. I know, I cannot live without it! x

  3. I have been loving the L'Oreal mascara!! I have been wanting to try the Laura Mercier foundation so bad!!

  4. It is definitely my favourite mascara. I did have the Telescopic waterproof but it is so hard to get off in the evenings! x
