Easy as 1, 2, 3

The fashionista that she was, my grandmother always said, "No matter how quick you need to leave the house, never leave without mascara." However, that was before the days of tinted moisturizer...something I'm sure she would have considered a necessity. That being said, here's a simple makeup routine for a last minute outing - reach for these three (3) items in  your makeup case: Tinted Moisturizer, Mascara and Gloss...apply and go!

TIP: I have been a fan of Laura Mercier's Tinted Moisturizer for years and prefer it over others. It gives me flawless coverage and has a reasonable price point. However, if you don't happen to have a tinted moisturizer in your makeup kit, it's super easy to make your own! Simply mix a small amount of your everyday foundation with your SPF daily moisturizer until the tint of the mixture blends well with the skin tone of your neck (not your hand). To make future applications easier, mix a larger amount in a small clear jar (such as this one found at The Container Store).
