Foundation with self-tanner = 💯.

You're busy—like, not a nanosecond to spare—so redoing your makeup between work, the gym, and whatever your nighttime plans may be has to be easy. The trick to making each swap seamless? A super-powered foundation. If you have a tan, glowing canvas, whatever you put on top will look that much better.
