We all crave that sun-kissed, just-spent-the-day-at-the-beach glow. But when lying out in the sun all day isn’t an option—especially now that we all know that’s not safe—we’re glad we can rely on makeup, particularly highlighters, luminizers and bronzers, to give us that coveted faux glow in seconds!

“The key is to know how to use different textures and where they are placed,” says makeup artist Jen Nguyen. “Luminizers, for example, tend to be liquids and can be added to your foundation for an allover radiance. For a multi-dimensional glow, you can also try layering different formulas: start with liquids or creams first, then finish with powder highlighters. This is also the best order for making your glow last longer throughout the day.”
