1. Most important, I suppose, is the moisturizer and sunscreen. I can't find the product I like by Solaris anywhere online. Sorry, perhaps check with your esthetician. I absolutely love it. It's not sticky at all.
2. This tinted moisturizer is the best for light, natural coverage that I have ever found. And I've tried lots, lots, lots. You can barely feel it on your skin. "Nude" is just about the perfect match for my skin color.
3. Blush: I can't say enough for this product. Everyone looks a little better with some blush on their cheeks. I rotate depending on the season and my mood. Right now I'm obsessed with this little color montage (in pink rose). Looks pretty bright in the package, but it is just the right amount of pink in my opinion.
Another lovely, but in a cream form is this (in Oleander).
4. This is the most critical component in my opinion: Lip Gloss. Seriously, go find a smokin' shade for yourself and it will make your whole day better. I have so many favorite shades and they change all the time. Here are a few I always come back to: Kiehls Lip Balm in Hue 58B, Bobbi Brown Lip Tint (cherry is a great shade, but all of them are nice) and Lancome Juicy Tube in Miracle (the photo is the clear version...Miracle is the prettiest palest pink imaginable). None of these are sticky, and they are all great natural, but beautiful, colors with just the right amount of shine. The Juicy Tube has tiny little diamond-like specks of shimmer (don't worry, NOT glitter). I like to think all three of these just enhance the natural color of my lips, rather than putting a new, fake color on them. (Random FYI: Other known Lip Gloss Junkies in the blog world... Whoorl and Metalia.)
When I have an extra minute or two, I also like to use a nude eyeshadow (like this -- in bone) to even everything out up there (makes you look more awake) and I curl my eyelashes. I'm not a mascara person unless I'm going out at night -- I have yet to find one that really looks natural and doesn't smear by the end of the day and make me look like I had 3 hours of sleep the night before.
Also, when you need it, I highly recommend (again) Laura Mercier for concealer. Her Secret Camouflage is perfect, and lasts forever.
What about you? When you have just 2 minutes, what do you do?
