4. Pick up a foundation or BB cream that targets multiple needs
"A multipurpose base is crucial when you're trying to get ready in a pinch," says LA-based makeup artist Joanna Schlip. "Pick out one that targets your skincare needs and gives you the coverage you need — you'll end up eliminating so many steps you won't know what to do with your extra a.m. time." One like Physicians Formula Super BB All-in-1 Beauty Balm Cream has hydrating glycerin, antioxidants vitamin C and E (these help brighten and protect your skin from free radicals, which cause premature aging), luxsil powder that leaves a soft-focus, luminous finish, offers up SPF 30 protection, and helps control oil with white willowbark extract.
