Glow Primer Isn’t the Fountain of Youth (but It’s Pretty Darn Close)
Until we have the budget to hire an assistant to mist us with Evian spray all day, our surest way to get a dewy, youthful, just-got-back-from-the-spa look is—drumroll, please—a luminizing primer.
Whether applied under foundation or solo, the light-reflecting liquid seriously takes off five, even ten years. We’ve found five great options for five different skin concerns—so go ahead, take off the last couple years (minus whatever retirement savings you racked up).
BEST NATURAL BEAUTY OPTION
This formula swaps silicones for coconut alkalines, which apparently means all the smoothing and moisturizing effects without the synthetics.
BEST FOR SUN PROTECTION
With SPF 30, you can prevent aging as you mask it. Genius.
BEST FOR DRY SKIN
Hyaluronic acid and shea butter pack a one-two moisturizing punch in this formula.
BEST BANG FOR YOUR BUCK
At just $5 a tube, consider this mineral-infused gel your gateway drug to the world of glow.
