We love reading about other women’s beauty routines, and could get lost reading all of the Top Shelf articles on Into The Gloss for hours. It is always so intriguing to hear about what other women love and why, and it’s a great way to discover new products. So we thought we’d ask a few busy ladies we admire to share what their morning routines look like.

6:27 a.m. Alarm goes off for kid #1 to get up. Hit snooze.
6:37 a.m. Alarm goes off, wash face, haul kid #1 out of bed. Make coffee, breakfast, get her dressed.
6:57 a.m. Bring her downstairs for the bus.
7:02 a.m. Quickly take a bath.
7:20 a.m. Apply Bliss Triple Oxygen Radiant Protection Energizing Serum, then apply Gold & Snail Hydrogel Eye Patches.
7:45 a.m. Wake up kid #2, feed her breakfast and set her up playing while I get dressed.
8:15 a.m. Get dressed, take off eye patches.
8:25 a.m. Put on face makeup: Apply True Botanicals Face Oil and RMS Un Cover-Up under eyes and sunspots. I swear by the Lancome Star Bronzer Brush. Also, I apply a little mascara on days with meetings (I love Chanel). Lastly, a spritz of L’eau d’Issey perfume.
Grab kid #2 and drop her at school!

5 a.m. Wake up. I always start my day with our beautifying green tea, O&J Rosy Matcha Beauty Tea. It helps me wake up and it has truly helped my nails get so much stronger.
7 a.m. Take a cardio class at Tracy Anderson.
8:15 a.m. Shower and get ready for the day.
Concealer (I rotate these, depending on my skin that day especially under my eyes!)
MAC Eyeshadow in Orb (been using since 2008, my longest to date love affair with a beauty product)
The BrowGal Eyebrow Gel (still trying to grow in my eyebrows, even though I am pretty confident it will never fully happen).

True Botanicals is my skincare religion. Its CLEAR line totally saved my acne-prone skin three years ago, so while I test clean beauty products for a living, I always go back to my tried-and-true. I use its CLEAR Hydrating Cleanser in the shower, and I love the Nourishing Wash and Nourishing Lotion. When I get out of the shower, I follow up with True Botanicals CLEAR Nutrient Toner immediately and then press about six drops of CLEAR Pure Radiance Oil onto my face and neck. While that is sinking in, I brush my teeth with Davids Natural Toothpaste (you’ll never go back to conventional toothpaste once you try it). I never, ever skip SPF, and True Botanicals Everyday Sheer Coverage SPF 20 is the perfect tinted daily sunscreen. It is lightweight, not at all greasy and the finish is semi-matte and sheer; it also makes the perfect primer (I love it so much I even apply it before my makeup at night if I’m going out!).
I try to let my hair air-dry as much as possible while I do my makeup. Unless I’m testing new products, I keep it simple most days. I use W3LL PEOPLE Bio Correct Concealer under my eyes, a little Kjaer Weis Cream Foundation and RMS Beauty Eye Polish, Buriti Bronzer and Lip2Cheek. I finish all those creamy formulas off with either RMS Beauty Tinted “Un” Powder or W3LL PEOPLE Bio Brightening Powder. Then I apply a little Lily Lolo Mascara, RMS Beauty Living Luminizer and Plume Brow Pomade. My favorite daily lippy is 28 Litsea Tinted Petala Balm in “In Love.” It is the best tinted lip balm I’ve ever used. It really gives the whole your-lips-but-better look, it moisturizes so well and you can’t beat the price. So, that sounds like a lot of makeup, but these products create a true no-makeup makeup look, and it only takes me about 5 minutes! Last, I spray a little Intelligent Nutrients Volumizing Spray at my roots and blow dry my hair. Done!
