I always use the Chanel Hydra Beauty Flash Primer before putting my foundation on. It creates a really natural glow and makes your foundation stay on all day! I then use my trusty BeautyBlender with my Laura Mercier tinted moisturiser in the shade "Sand". This is definitely a light coverage, but it creates such a beautiful glow and is incredibly light on the skin. It is my personal favourite!
I have pretty good skin, and I don't get that much redness or blemishes that need a lot of coverage. One thing I struggle with is eye-bags, and I've found that the Maybelline Age-Rewind Concealer does a great job of covering them when I'm in a hurry. Mine is in the shade "Light/Pale". You should always use concealer one or two shades lighter than your foundation. That way your concealer won't just cover your imperfections, it will also help to give your face some dimension.
To prevent creasing and keep my concealer perfect all day I use the Laura Mercier Translucent setting powder. This is a product that I swear by, and will continue to use forever. I take a little powder on my BeautyBlender and dab it in the same areas where I applied concealer.
Perhaps the most important step: lashes & brows. For my eyebrows I use the Chanel eyebrow pencil No.40, and for lashes the Diorshow Iconic Mascara. I've been using these two products for about 2 years, and will continue using them for a long time because of how well they work for me. I love products that I end up re-purchasing, especially when they seem to never fail me.
I recently got the Laura Mercier Master Class Second Edition palette, and I've used the bronzer, blush and highlight that it comes with ever since. I love adding a lot of highlighter and bronzer to create a lot of dimension. I've always had a hard time with blush because I find that it easily becomes very apparent, and I prefer a subtle hint of blush rather than a popping pink. Recently I've experimented with blush more and more, and I'm starting to love it!
Throw on some lipgloss and setting spray and you're ready to go! I'm using a gloss from Buxom and setting spray from Urban Decay to finish off my look, and then I'm good to go for the rest of the day! This is such a simple look that takes me about 5-10 minutes to do when I'm rushing out in the morning. This is probably the easiest look ever, but it definitely makes me feel great and confident every day.
