1. I swipe on a pea-size dollop Complexion Rescue from Bare Minerals (it's super hydrating and gives my skin a delightful dewy glow.)

2. I use an illuminating flawless concealer from Trish McEvoy to brighten the dark rings under my eyes.

3. I use a flat bronzing powder from Bobbi Brown.

4. I take a beat to evaluate the results... but only if my kids will let me!
