My College Lazy Day Makeup

Let's be honest, most days we wake up and try to roll out of bed, but we can't because we are just too tired. College has introduced me to so much more free time and sleep time. I don't normally think about putting on a full face of makeup when I wake up for a 9 am class, but when I do, it is minimal and very natural. I have still been loving a few products and my routines haven't changed a lot. I am still trying to use up products before the holiday season and I think it is good to use products for a while that you enjoy instead of buying new ones over and over. 
When it comes to a lazier morning, I try to make sure I moisturize a ton. Usually, it wakes me up and I can count on my skin being soft and smooth throughout my lectures that I have. The Lancome Renergie Lift cream has been the most hydrating and repairing for my very dry skin now that it's almost winter. I apply a dime size amount and immediately feel relieved of dryness and redness. I will also follow it with the Lancome Renergie Microlift cream on spots where my skin looks a little tired or around my jawline and neck to really waken up my skin. 
Next, I usually like to put on a primer, even though I'm not wearing any face makeup. I have found that for my lazy days, the Too Faced Hangover Primer does the best to my skin to make sure my pores are minimized and my skin looks fresh and bright for the day. It has more of a dewy finish, which can make you look more healthy and "alive" for classes. 

Over any dark spots or acne that I might have, I do like to correct them and make my face look somewhat even. I use the Bobbi Brown Color Corrector under my eyes and around trouble spots. It really helps when you wake up with sleep marks and dark under eyes. I do like to add a pop of color to my face sometimes, and the Tarte Flush Cheek Stain is sheer enough to look very natural. I top off my look with just a couple swipes of the Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara and I am good to go! 
This can usually take me about five minutes or less to achieve and it is practical for me on most days when I can hardly get out of bed to go to class. The last thing I want to deal with is a full face of products and it just makes everything easier when I don't have to worry about it. I usually like to spritz a body spray or perfume on before I leave and my Jo Malone Peony and Blush Suede perfume is my classic scent of choice. What is your lazy day routine like?
