Cream: RMS Beauty Living Luminizer
Made for the woman who'd rather not wear any makeup at all, this formula contains organic coconut oil, rosemary extract, and light-reflecting minerals. Dab it onto the tops of your cheekbones, down the bridge of your nose, and on the bow of your lips for an understated sheen in seconds.

Click Pen: Jouer Luminizing Liquid Highlighter
Its brush-on tip makes for precise application on small spots, including brow bones. Swipe it on wherever you want to look more awake, then blend with your fingertips. The water-based formula is packed with antioxidants, vitamins A and E, and Gingko Biloba extract. In two hues.

Gel: Laura Mercier Foundation Primer Radiance
Give your complexion a boost by layering this creamy primer under your makeup. The pearl tint creates a soft focus effect (similar to your go-to Instagram filter), blurring blemishes and amping up radiance. It also contains good-for-your-skin ingredients, like antioxidants and jojoba. Bonus: Wearing it also gives the makeup you put on top extra staying power.
