Foundation = 30 seconds
The easiest choice for light coverage that will even out your skin and create a "no-makeup" look is tinted moisturizer. Cult favorite Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer SPF 20 ($44) offers a natural glow and is easy to apply.
As a Laura Mercier regional artist, I was taught that Laura prefers using fingers to apply this product to avoid applying too much and for an even application. Because this product is so sheer, swiping this on in the morning with your fingers is a mistake-proof quick step.
If you want more coverage, use a foundation brush to quickly apply a traditional foundation layer in circular motions. Either way, this is not a step to skip. Skin will look even and smooth, and any other color will lay beautifully on your face.
