Best BB / CC Cream
Why: Consider this BB cream your new everyday go-to. The creamy formula feels light, but has enough coverage to conceal any pesky blemishes while giving skin an oh-so-healthy glow.
Honorable Mention: Burt's Bees BB Cream
Readers' Choice Winner: It Cosmetics Your Skin But Better CC Cream With SPF 50+
Why: This is a full-coverage product but doesn't feel heavy. I have oily skin, and this doesn't make me shiny, and lasts all day. I love how glowy my skin looks after putting this on.
Honorable Mention: Rimmel London BB Cream
Why: This ultra-pigmented blush gives cheeks a luminous, ethereal glow. Be prepared for tons of compliments on how radiant you look when you wear it.
Honorable Mention: Urban Decay Afterglow 8-Hour Powder Blush
Readers' Choice Winner: Nars Blush
Why: These blushes are very pigmented (a little goes a long way) and blend exceptionably well. The shimmer is so finely milled, it just adds a lovely dimension and catches the light beautifully.
Honorable Mention: Milani Baked Blush
Why: You can use this pearl-infused, coconut-scented bronzer to sculpt your cheekbones, or to give your entire face a natural-looking, just-back-from-St.-Tropez glow.
Honorable Mention: CoverGirl TruBlend Bronzer
Readers' Choice Winner: Too Faced Snow Bunny Luminous Bronzer
Why: This gives a very nice, luminous glow without being too shimmery or too subtle. It's a highlighter, bronzer and blush in one. If you don't need coverage, just brush this all over your face, and it will help even out your complexion.
Honorable Mention: Laura Geller Bronze-n-Brighten
Why: This double-sided tool transforms the wimpiest of brows into a bold look that Cara D. would be proud of. The precise, supercreamy pencil applies like a dream, and the clear gel has amazing hold that keeps brows in place all day.
Honorable Mention: Glossier Boy Brow
Readers' Choice Winner: Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz
Why: I have tried everything, but nothing looked nearly as natural or as defined as what the Brow Wiz has done for me. My brows have honestly never looked better. Perfect brows that last all day and don't wash off if you sweat or get wet.
Honorable Mention: Benefit Instant Brow Pencil
Why: A lightweight concealer that packs major undereye-bag coverage. The creamy formula blends easily into skin and helps you fake a full night's sleep in seconds.
Honorable Mention: Lorac Porefection Concealer
Readers' Choice Winner: It Cosmetics Bye Bye Under Eye Anti-Aging Concealer
Why: This is an amazing under-eye concealer. A little goes a long way. It spreads easily and does not feel heavy at all. It lasts all day without creasing or settling into any fine lines.
Honorable Mention: BareMinerals Concealer Broad Spectrum SPF 20
