Moisturizer, too…but since I usually moisturize at night, if I really gotta hurry up, I would just wipe off the excess oil and put foundation on(in colder months) or wash just a tiny bit so it won’t strip away everything and put foundation on(everywhere). So yeah, foundation, preferably a medium coverage natural looking one….

I went 10 years with just using moisturizer, powder and mascara; but if it’s one of days when i can’t be bothered, then it’s just moisturizer.

I was going to say nothing (I often go out barefaced) but I would also have to say moisturiser! I don’t even think about it, I just do it! But I also have to do SOMETHING with my hair, it’s short (only just at my ears) and when I wake up it’s usually a spectacular homage to Medusa ….

For me too….moisturizer is must to apply in skin on daily basis…I use Jergens coconut hydration creme…which one do you use christine/favourite??

Well yeah, moisturizer, but I don’t exactly count that as a beauty product. It’s more of a skin care product in my opinion.

I won’t leave the house without mascara. Like I’ve said in other comments, my small, blonde-eyelashed eyes disappear without definition!

I’m big on eyeliner! It’s really all I need, even though I love to do more than that. It makes me look awake and bright-eyed. 🙂

Lip balm. One in every coat pocket, two in every purse and a truly embarrassing number in my briefcase right now (five plus lipsticks… after I cleaned).

Sunscreen (though that isn’t strictly a “beauty product” -it’s a health product and should be an absolute necessity for everyone, like wearing a seatbelt or not smoking!) and concealer!

Agreeed!! (My moisturizer has SPF in it, but absolutely won’t walk out the door without SPF it’s day time!)

Sunscreen! My moisturizer contains sunscreen though so maybe I cheated. 😉 But if we’re talking makeup, then it’s a tie between eyeliner and concealer. I have terrible dark circles and I just think I look rather odd without eyeliner!

Like a lot of people, sunscreen is my top pick. If I had to pick a cosmetic, I’d say mascara since my eyelashes are strawberry blonde tho’ I go without anything on the weekends fairly often.

Definitely moisturizer. I go out in public about half the time with no makeup on, but I need at least sunscreen or moisturizer or else some of my flaky skin will emerge.

I am so proud to see so many people saying sunscreen :’)

I would also say sunscreen, and if I had another few minutes definitely brows.

Lipstick! I won’t even be in my house without it. As soon as I get up in the morning, I brush my teeth and put on lipstick, even if I am going to spend the day in my pajamas.

Moisturizer too ( I am using the Clinique one, in yellow package, I think it has decent spf too)
That or a bit of the Clarins Flash Balm if I feel my skin specially dull.

Aside from moisturiser (which I do apply anyway whether I do go out or not), …foundation. My freckles had kinda merged into bigger ones and lately, I’ve been very conscious about it :p But honestly, there are at least two products I can’t leave the house without. The other, is a dark brown eyeliner/eyeshadow just on the outer corners of eyes to enhance my round puny eyes 🙂

mascara I feel odd without it
theeeeen if I had time for a second product it would be concealer. The rest is just icing on the cake for me

Lip balm! I can’t stand the feeling of dry lips so I keep lip balm near by at all times (one on my nightstand, one in the medicine cabinet, one in my car, and one in my purse). I usually apply it each morning, right after brushing my teeth and allow it to sink in, then apply my lip color right before leaving the house.

I can’t even leave the bathroom without moisturizer LOL!! And my eyebrows. Always eyebrows if I have to leave my house, sometimes even if I’m just staying at home – I feel funny without doing something to them.

Skincare: moisuriser, certainly.

Makeup: I will always have some sort of lip product on, at least lip balm (usually tinted). My no pigment death lips make it hard for me to look healthy without 😉

Sunscreen. Although there HAS been time I’ve left the house without applying sunscreen, those were more of a wake-up-and-run-not-even-brush-my-teeth sort of lateness.

Concealer is my must-have product, and my brow pencil/gel combo is almost as important. I want my skin less flawed, and my eyes framed.

Sunscreen for me.

Although, I did have a moment a couple of days back when my face felt awfully dry and I was wearing makeup. I didn’t know whether to put moisturizer on my makeup itself or take the whole thing off.

Moisturizer with SPF. My skin is way too sensitive and the sun is very strong in Florida, so without SPF I’d fry.

Mattifying moisturizer with SPF (Arbonne FC5 Oil-Absorbing Day Lotion with SPF 20), and/or mattifying primer (ALGENIST Pore Corrector Anti-Aging Primer)

I’m terrible but I rarely leave the house without all my makeup on. If I have to leave I put on foundation or a BB cream at the bare minimum. I feel I have a bad complexion and am not at all confident without that coverage.
