With the changing of the seasons and not having to hibernate any longer you want your skin to look as good as it can. I'm definitely one who thinks less is more when it comes to makeup. Although I do find myself plastering it on for special events, this is my go to every day beauty routine.

loreal eye defense cream
At night I wash my "face" off with the Clinique Cleanser and apply the moisturizer and eye cream. I have found that it works best with my skin and t-zone to use the clarifying lotion about once a week or every few days. It'a a little harsh otherwise; if I were to use it I would prior to applying moisturizer.

loreal bb cream in medium

loreal volumizing mascara in jet black
eco tools brush (similar)
In the morning I simply wet my face in the shower (rinse off any residue from my workout) and pat dry. I don't re-wash my face because I find that I don't need to. However, if your face is super sensitive or oily then it may work for you to wash again.
I first apply the blemish concealer if/as needed. Then I follow with the BB Cream. I love the Loreal BB Cream, but to be honest I never really tried any others so I am not a real good judge. Do any of you have favorites?
I use about a dime size dot and with my fingers apply evenly all over my face and eye lids. Once my skin is sufficiently covered and blended I move on to the highlighting and concealing. I use the concealer under my eye and to cover any spots the BB cream didn't. Then I use a bit of the highlighter to do under my brow line and along the bridge of my nose.
I follow with the mascara and blush.
This is for the everyday. It takes me about 5 minutes in the morning and about 5-10 mins at night. Sometimes I mix in an avocado and oatmeal mask for exfoliating.
