On-the-go women, you can apply a fresh, fabulous face in minutes! Makeup guru Laura Mercier says to cleanse, moisturize then play a little game. "Rushed women must choose two to three makeup priorities," explains Laura. "Play this little game: Ask yourself what two to three makeup products you would bring to a deserted island with your lover? Your answer will tell you what's essential for you."
Laura offers some examples of wise makeup choices for makeup in minutes:
If you are plagued with dark circles under your eyes, then quickly apply concealer under your eyes, mascara and some lip gloss, and you're off!
If you have fair or pale skin color, then simply apply some cream blush and lipstick and go!
If you have olive or dark skin, but your tone is a little sallow, then you may choose a creamy lip color and some blush, and you're ready for the day.
If breakouts or spider veins are your biggest problem, then simply cover them with a little camouflage, then apply your favorite lip and eye colors, and you're done!
