Funny – today was one of those days.
Tinted moisturizer with SPF
Curl my lashes
Lip gloss to protect my lips

Essentially – the stuff to prevent skin cancer and a curl of the lashes. But I always have liner in my purse so I apply that as soon as I can once I arrive at my destination.

If I’m running late, it’s undereye concealer, tinted moistuizer, black eyeliner, mascara, and lip gloss. If I have one more minute, I’ll use a highlight stick as eyeshadow.

Umm… so every morning. In order of importance: primer and foundation (or bb cream if I’m really in a hurry), concealer, brows, mascara, blush. I will throw something easy on my eyes if there’s a bit of time left, like a maybelline color tattoo. And I usually have lip products in my purse too. Sometimes I’ll grab mascara to go.

How much time is considered running late? I would use an illuminating moisturizer. Then, essentials in five minutes would be concealer, cream shadow, mascara, brows, blush, lip balm. I carry lip products in my bag, so I could add color on the way.

Concealer is a must! Then brows. If I’m super short on time I’ll stop there. I used to not be able to leave the house without mascara but now if my brows are done I’m ok with my blonde lashes. If I have a bit more I’ll add blush then mascara. Like you said, I always have a gloss or lipstick floating around in my bag.

It generally only take me 5 min to do my make up, but if I’m running super late and only have 30 seconds I’ll just do pressed powder & eyeliner.

If it’s 5 minutes for makeup I do my eyes (base, neutral light shadows, liner and, optionally, mascara). And then I grab to go a BB cream and a lipgloss or tinted balm. I’ve got a compact foundation with mirror and air sponge for that xD If I don’t have time at all I’ll just take a liner, mascara and foundation with me.

Haha, I swipe on a pinkish red lip stain and i’m good to go!
On normal days, I do my eyebrows, powder and lip product

Haha that is a good question. My problem is that I don’t really want to leave any of it which means im not the best at getting places! I would have to say I would leave the lipstick and bring it with me! I would probably leave out blusher as well. X

Dab on some concealer, and apply lipwear, all of which takes less than 10 seconds–and hope I don’t sweat it all off when running out the door! xD

Sunscreen, foundation product (typically a TM), powder (MPF), eyebrows, mascara, & tinted lip balm. I’ll also grab my “to-go” bag that is pre-packed with a neutral eye palette, liner, eyeshadow base of some sort (it varies depending on what shadows are in there), blush, lip product, and applicable brushes. I don’t necessarily keep the bag prepped constantly, but if I know I have something specific planned, and time may be an issue, then I’ll make sure it’s ready the night before.
