If you’ve ever wondered what I get up to on a typical work day as a full-time blogger, today’s your lucky day. With the help of Almay Canada, I documented a full day complete with my beauty looks. Suffice to say, I slept soundly after getting everything done.

Wake Up and Smell the Lemons

I try to start every morning with a cup of hot lemon water and a workout in my building’s gym. Not only does it start my day off on the right foot, I make sure I don’t skip a workout either.

I’m not ashamed to admit it, I workout with a bit of makeup on too. On this morning, I used Almay’s Age Essentials Concealer,, Brow Pencil and Age Essentials Lip Treatment. I particularly love the Brow Pencil, it creates the perfect soft yet sculpted brow look thanks to its ultra-fine tip and easy-to-use spoolie.

Coffee Shop Writing

Although I have a great home office set up, I love sitting in a local coffee shop from time to time. It can get lonely working by myself sometimes. The buzz of a cozy cafe keeps me fuelled in more ways than one.

Getting ready to head out was just as easy as going to the gym. After a quick shower, I reapplied the concealer and brow pencil, then added Almay’s One Coat Multi-Benefit Mascara, Smart Shade Blush, Pen Eyeliner and Smart Shade Butter Kiss Lipstick. I’m officially OBSESSED with this eyeliner. It has a unique ball-shaped tip that gives the smoothest, even lines with essentially no smearing and stays put all day.

Lights, Camera, Action!

I’m always taking photos, whether in front of the camera or behind it. This day, I happened to be in front of the lens to showcase an amazing holiday look.

To make sure I felt flawless from head to toe, I added Almay’s Age Essentials Foundation and Everyday Neutrals Eyeshadow while touching up my concealer, blush and lipstick. The eyeliner didn’t budge an inch!

Make an Appearance

After wrapping up the photoshoot, I made a quick change at home before attending a holiday charity event. It was a cheerful yet casual atmosphere so I didn’t have to do much in terms of touch-ups.

Who Runs the World?

After that, I jetted to my weekly media run with Nike. Although I tend to keep my makeup on when I workout, I don’t normally wear foundation on an every day basis (photoshoot days are clearly an exception). So I used Almay’s Oil Free Makeup Remover Towelettes for a cleaner sweat. It boasts a botanical blend of aloe, cucumber and green tea, which made it smell so good. Once I got home, I used the Oil Free Gentle Eye Makeup Remover Pads to get everything else off. And that was that! A very full day.
