Laura Mercier's coveted Face Illuminators now come in easy-to-customize liquid formulas. Whether you’re after a daytime glow or full-on glamorous look for a night out, the dropper on the waterlight highlighter makes it easy to build up your unique level of radiance without looking glittery or cakey.
Creamy, long-lasting and free of any harmful ingredients you wouldn't want near your mouth, this bright shade works on all skin tones and is the perfect mix between a punchy pink and everyday nude.
If you've tried Sigma's Wicked Gel Liner, you know its staying power is no joke. For those of us who don't have the gift of working well with liquid or gel liners, the brand just launched the same true-black, never-smudge formula in a pencil form for all of the payoff and none of the pain.
If your skin needs a break from foundation, this color-correcting serum is the way to go. It goes on green, but instantly melts into a shade that's identical to your skin tone. The result: camouflaged discoloration and redness, and the perfect amount of your-skin-but-better coverage—all while letting your skin breathe.
Dab on both ends of this radiance-enhancing duo—one end gives skin sun-kissed color and the other highlights the cheekbones, brow bone and and clavicles in seconds—for a glow that no one will believe isn't from your trip to Mexico.
Infused with a botanical-based serum, this complexion-correcting formula is part skin care and part makeup. Jojoba, aloe leaf, rose hip and marula oils soothe irritation and work to nix fine lines over time while the luxe foundation itself makes it seem like neither exist.
Benefit Gold Rush Blush ($29)
If a blush that smells like vanilla and sandalwood isn't enough to sell you, the way a single swipe of this one-two-punch formula combines a natural flush with a look-at-me glow will.
When time is of the essence, swipe this foolproof shadow stick over your lids and along your lower lashline for an eye-catching look—this limited-edition peacock shade is perfect for day or night—that only looks labor intensive.
Available in 40 skin-loving shades, this liquid, medium-coverage formula blends easily and dries down to a matte finish. Even better, it stays put through workouts, high temps and mid-day oil.
Two tastefully shimmered hues combine with a classic matte in this portable palette that's able to create a "no makeup" makeup look or full-blown smokey eye in seconds. Choose from this seasonal berry shade or one of the 15 others; there's something for every mood and skin tone.
