a beauty uniform: lauren

i have been so inspired by the blog, a cup of jo {love everything about it} but one of the things that inspires me most is how she promotes and encourages women to be themselves- to be confident, creative, independent and beautiful. to just be who you are. she has a series called beauty uniform- where women share their beauty routines; the ins and outs to be a woman. personal fashion, skin care, make-up, hair, perfumes, etc. all things up my alley. when i say i could spend hours in sephora- i mean it. i love everything about being a woman and decided to encourage my readers/sponsors to examine their own beauty routines- their own personal 'beauty uniform.' today i am so excited to share my very first one with you- the absolutely stunning and sweet lauren of sincerely lo - who will be sharing her lovely beauty uniform with you. enjoy! she is precious.
 
My morning routine starts by my alarm getting off at 6am. I walk right into the restroom and grab my Clean & Clear Morning Burst facial cleanser. This face wash wakes me right up and makes my skin feel so fresh! Afterwards, I will do my quick makeup routine to make my face appear somewhat awake. I will run into my closet, grab some comfortable yet professional clothes for work, kiss my husband off to work, grab a quick vanilla mocha from Starbucks and walk into my workplace by 7am.
 
Two of my go-to lipsticks are Loreal Colour Riche and Maybelline lipstick. I am always open to trying new lipsticks with bold colors so any recommendations would be much appreciated!
  I would have to highly recommend everyone trying some Desert Essence Organic Jojoba Oil. One of my best friends recommended this to me and its WONDERFUL for a face, body and hair moisturizer. Your skin will feel so incredibly soft and the oil will absorb better than a lotion. Plus, its all natural!   
For my hair, I use SheaMoisture Raw Shea Butter Moisture Retention Shampoo and conditioner. Not only will this make your hair smell so incredible, but its leaves such a texture and soft feeling. 
 Clinique Acne Solutions foundation: I use this for the texture and coverage of the foundation. Even if you dont have acne, it is a wonderful fulmination! Plus, it prevents any future breakouts.
Sephora Kabuki foundation brush: This brush works wonders. Your makeup will go on smooth and will keep your face very clean.
Maybelline powder: I put on very, very, very little powder so a little compact powder does the trick!
ELF blush: Again, not a huge blush fan so a quick and easy blush will work.
Maybelline Rocket Volume Express mascara: I love any and all mascara but this one seems to never let my lashes down. 
Maybelline Line Stiletto liquid eye liner: I only wear eyeliner on the top of my eye and this liner seems to give a beautiful line that has yet to smudge on me.
Loreal Colour Riche Ruby Flame lipstick: This is hands down my favorite lipstick shade. I love trying bold colors that really make a statement. The only downfall I have about this lipstick is that is has a tendency to smudge. 
Right now my signature scent would have to be Beautiful Day from Bath & Body Works. It is a wonderful Spring scent that will make you want the lotion, perfume, body wash and travel spray :) Other scents I have enjoyed are Poppy Blossom from Coach and Victorias Secret Tease perfume.
 My favorite Pandora station. Hmmm, that is a hard one. I am someone who loves all types of music so my top ones would have to be Bethel, Kenny Chesney, City and Colour and Maroon 5.
Oh how I am a girl who only wants a shower! Seriously, my house could have no bathtub and I would be totally fine. I have always hated baths because to me, I feel like I am laying in my own dirt from the end of the day. There is nothing more relaxing than turning on my music and just being in a steaming shower :) 
The biggest thing I learned from my mom and grandmother growing up was to always be confident in myself. We live in a world where girls are constantly criticized for not being good enough, fit enough, pretty enough. Its so easy to get caught into believing this lie. But we have to remember that we were beautifully and wonderfully made by our Perfect Creator!

    2. I guess I never realized how quick it was Joey haha! I always make sure to plan my outfits the night before, have my bags ready to go and it is a huge bonus that I live about seven minutes from my work, and Starbucks is right on the corner next to my work. Not many props for me :)
