You may think major makeup skills are a must when it comes to skin that looks perfect, but there are some great one-step skin-care products out there that can fake the polished look just as easily. Click through to find the out which six should make it onto your shopping list.

1 / 6

Boscia Eye Balm

The best benefit of any eye product is one that goes on over makeup midday, but doesn’t look shiny, oily or have the off-putting side effect of erasing every trace of makeup in its tracks. This one fits the bill on both ends, and delivers a mini spa-like experience (hello, office desk drawer staple) by delivering a cooling effect that leaves your eyes looking so totally rested, you can actually skip the concealer. $26, sephora.com

2 / 6

Laura Mercier Pressed Setting Powder

The stark-white shade of this powder can be a bit frightening, but it successfully manages to almost give an airbrushed “filtered” effect, especially on the T-zone. It’s pretty much the perfect product for touching up your look at the end of a long day or after a plane ride. $39, us.spacenk.com

jane iredale Facial Blotting Papers

When excess oil is a recurring problem, blotting papers are the way to go. These are the real deal—they make skin instantly mattified and flawless, and don’t disrupt makeup. $11, janeiredale.com

4 / 6

Amarte Aqua Mist Toner

Not all hydrating sprays are just about the moisture! This yummy, citrus-scented brightening one is really powerful (it has arbutin in it), but still works on sensitive skin types to instantly make skin look better. $67, amarteskincare.com

5 / 6

Mally Evercolor Poreless Face Defender

Mally’s Evercolor Poreless Face Defender has immensely powerful results. Pat it on over makeup and it automatically diffuses all flaws and fixes problem areas like enlarged pores, without leaving any trace of that “powdery” look. $40, mallybeauty.com

6 / 6

Dr. Dennis Gross Clinical Concentrate Boosters

Even if you aren’t much of a mixologist when it comes to DIY beauty, these little bottles of magic are incredibly easy to use. Just add a few drops to your serum or foundation, depending on which skin-care woes ail you that day (there’s a targeted radiance, hydration and purifying option) and they will work to deliver your skin exactly what it needs. $58, dgskincare.com
