15 min till I'm out the door, and Greening your morning.

So at least once a week I hit snooze one to many times....I'm sure I'm not the only one. Anyway there are days when I only have 15-20 min to get ready and I find that putting on my make-up is what makes or breaks my timetable. So I thought I would show you my staples, what I use when I'm in a hurry. As I've mentioned before I'm in the process of switching to greener more natural makeup, but I'm not going to just throw out what I have that would be a major waste. So I'm using it up.
(Top Left to Bottom Right)
1. CO Bigelow Lip Tint (Bath and Body Works)
2. Mary-Kay blush brush (its greener to keep it till its dead than buy a new one)
3. M.A.C Bronzer/Highlighter/Blush (it was a Christmas thing so they no longer have it)
4. Clinique Quick Eyes Cream Shadow in Starlit Pink. (Now in a tube with wand)
5.Everyday Minerals base in Golden Fair (I'm in love!)
6. Everyday Minerals Baby Bamboo Brush (only available in select kits but checkout their kits they are amazing!)

How to green your morning.

~ Take your shower the night before and let you hair air dry. Then the next morning it will only take 1/2 or none of the electricity to style it since you only have to use the flatting iron or curling iron instead of also using a blow dryer. If you put your hair up every other day like I do you don't use any (second day hair!)

~While we are on the subject shower everyday if you must but only wash your hair every other.

~Use bar shampoo and soap instead of traditional store bought. Less ingredients, plastic and better for your skin and hair! My current fav is the Vanilla Buttermilk Bar from Apple Valley Natural Soaps it leaves my skin silky. I haven't switched to shampoo yet because again I'm trying to use up what I have.

~ Use a green make-up I'm seriously loving the Everyday Minerals base and eye shadow.

~If you still like to go to the counter and purchase, consider MAC they have a back to MAC program where you can return 6 of their primary packaging either to the store or mail in and get a free lipstick!

~Here is the easiest one of all, turn off your water while you brush your teeth.

Well that is all I can think about for now, let me know if you have any green hints for me.

Thanks for commenting on my blog! I hope you come back again soon.

I'm very interested in which shampoo and conditioner you plan on using when switching over. I want to do the same - organic and natural, also because I'm hoping it will be gentler on my hair than harsh shampoos.
