I try not to use more than 4 layers of makeup at one time. Moisturize (doesn't count) first, then, depending on my mood, the tinted moisturizer that Helen got me, then primer, then BB cream, then coverup, and last, blush, oh and finally, finishing powder to absorb oil/sweat. So all in all, 6 steps.
I *love* skincare-makeup. When I am watching someone's makeup video tutorials I always think they'd be fine just stopping after foundation/blush. That is why in all of the above I went light to none on the eye shadow and a glossy lip color - it's one of those easy finishing touches.
I love BB creams and their various tints and shades and glows. I wish I had a few more to mess around with.
