No. 3: Cover FX Brite Prep, $45 While you may think a primer is an unnecessary step in your makeup routine, we bet you'll have second thoughts after you try this one. Not only does it fill in fine lines and rough spots to help your foundation, powder, and blush go on smooth (and stay put all day), but it also reduces melanin formation, which promotes overall skin lightening and minimizes freckles and age spots.
"The pearlized minerals in this primer offer instant skin brightening, and bearberry extract, mulberry extract, and vitamin C help minimize brown spots and inhibit new spots from forming," says Frankel. Bonus: It's SPF 50, which means you can skip the extra sunscreen step in the morning.
