The 7 Makeup Products Our Editor Swears By to Look Glowing Every Day
There are some makeup products out there that can give the illusion you have glowing skin. Some can make you look like a woman who is stress-free, has time to get LED facials at the drop of a hat and knows the world's best skin experts on a first-name basis.
In all honesty, I have gotten so many compliments on my skin this year, and while it's better than it has been in previous years, I still get spots, redness and areas of pigmentation. Since I'm a beauty editor, you probably already know that I treat my skin well. I use good skincare, a gua sha (once every night) and go for facials now and then. However, I also know which makeup products give you a glow that fools many into thinking you have a complexion that rivals Jennifer Lopez's.
Below are seven makeup products that give the complexion a luminosity and healthy glow. These babies will have everyone telling you, "Wow, you have great skin."
It Cosmetics CC+ Illumination ($61)
With more illumination than the original formulation, this evens out the skin tone and amps up your skin's brightness. Honestly, I've never tried a base with quite this much glow to give. When I say "glow," I don't mean glitter or sparkle—it mimics the look of post-facial skin. Keep scrolling to see what I mean.
Dr. Barbara Sturm Glow Drops ($212)
I know, I know—this is technically skincare, but I mix these glow-boosting drops into my foundation if I need a little extra oomph in the radiance department. Not only does it offer instant glow, but it works over time to even out your skin tone and prevent blemishes.
