You always have time to wash your face and moisturize. You have to always moisturize before you do anything else to your face. Use a warm wash cloth to wash your face than add your moisturizer. At a minimum you should always be able to throw on some lipstick. The BB Cream with a hint of foundation will have a dual purpose it will act as a cover up and a skin brightener. You can draw a simple line on your upper lid with a little bit of wing on it to open up your eyes.
Use your mascara from the inside of your lashes outward in a sweeping motion to really get the lash you will love even when you are running out the door. You can also wiggle your mascara wand a little bit at the base of your lashes to thicken them up nicely. Use a business card to hold under or behind the lashes to minimize the need to clean up.
Of course you have to add a little color to your cheeks and to get some contouring in. Instead of worrying about having separate compacts of lipstick and blush choose a lipstick color that will compliment your skin and use it as blush. You can blend it all in with your big makeup brush. To add lipstick as blush use little dots right under your cheek bone and then smudge it in with your fingertips in sweeping motions up toward your hair line. Using the brush to buff things up will give you a nice matte finish.
