"This might sound weird, but I don't actually wash my face in the morning. I cleanse at night, and then in the morning the most I ever do is splash my skin with a little warm water for a quick pick-me-up.
My skin's a delightful mix of dry, sensitive and acne-prone, and I find that too many lotions and potions just irritates it. So for me, the first step is to apply my tinted moisturizer, which I actually make by mixing about one part concealer (I love Revlon Colorstay) to three parts moisturizer (my current favorite's Olay Total Effects with SPF 15) on the back of my hand. That provides me with allover light-to-medium coverage depending on how I mix it, and I dot a little extra concealer on any stubborn spots afterwards."
