Priming the Skin: Pre-Makeup Routine

It's only been the last couple years that I've actually realize how important serums, lotions and pre-makeup primers are for the skin.  Maybe even more important than face wash (not that I could go without that step).  As I get more into my 30s (at the ripe old age of 31 now), I've noticed fine lines around my mouth, crows feet near my eyes and ripples along my forehead are not just appearing, but sticking around longer and longer.  When I really put effort into my night and pre-makeup routine with those important serums, lotions and primers, I've actually noticed those aging marks descend! So if that's not motivation, than I don't know what is.

I've spent the last several weeks using these new Regenerist products by Olay in the morning and at night and have been very pleased with the results so far.  I use the Wrinkle Revolution Complex pre-makeup, which not only feels great going on, it actually enhances my makeup, allowing it to go on smoother and stay on longer. I've also loved using the Micro-Sculpting Eye Cream & Lash Serum Duo morning and night to manage the wrinkles around my eyes with hydration and help my lashes thicken up.  My lashes need all the help they can get, as they are thin, light and take a beating with daily mascara. 
With a toddler to get ready in the morning and soon to have another little one around, mornings are pretty hectic to get myself ready.  Any little things I can do to improve my skin and therefore minimize the time I need to make myself presentable is much appreciated - a total win win situation.
What are your go-to face/wrinkle products?

{And this is how I remember to use night and morning products... Keep it right on my night stand!}
