The current beauty balm I’m using Dr. Jart+ water fuse & a swipe of a Chanel lip gloss or Nars gloss pencil.

Concealer under and around the eyes, mascara, and cream blush on the cheeks.  My 2-minute fix on the bus when I hit the ground running to work.  🙂

foundation. or tinted moisturizer and concealer. really miss my high school days when the answer would have been lip gloss and mascara, lol

A little under eye brightener, some concealer for any pigmented spots, and Benefit’s Dandelion blush/highlighter. Depending on how fast I was working I might throw in a little UD Primer potion in Sin.

Wet n’ Wild Brulee under my eyes as concealer, Revlon Pink in the Afternoon on my lips, and the browbone shade in the Wet n Wild Walking on Eggshells trio on my lid if I had time.

What are your favourite brow products to fill in your brows? I have the same hair and skin tone as you and I find it really difficult to find a brow pencil that is dark enough and yet black just looks wrong! Please give me some suggestions!

This isn’t actually too far from my reality, LOL. I just throw on a TM with SPF, MF with SPF, tinted lipbalm, mascara, and a swipe of a something from a neutral palette (usually *random*). If I have an extra 30 seconds, I’ll fill in my brows. Two minutes is actually quite a bit of time; I *rarely* need more than 10 minutes for a “complete” look. I’ve gotten used this routine, as I’m not a morning person, and I have no major skin issues (anymore). That being said, on the rare occasion I dress up, I like to have a full hour (a serious luxury with a 5 year old). I worked at a bank for 3 years, where makeup was expected to be minimal, and I typically had only 30 minutes to shower, dress, and put on makeup, so I got used to doing it quickly.

I’m always running behind, so I’ve managed to be able to do my full face in around ten minutes or less.  If I had two, I’m positive I could manage to apply BB cream, a little face powder, and an UD 24/7 Shadow Stick.  (In a color like Sin, that makes a decent standalone on the eyes.)

Foundation and Blush.  Without blush, I tend to look kinda dead.  Also mascara if I have the time.
