How to look young & energized

Get ready to look your best, brightest and youngest ever! From masks and scrubs to creams and concealers, we make sure you have everything you need to get your glow back. Here are our top 10 must-haves for fresh, beautiful skin.

Anti-aging makeup

1Tinted moisturizer

For the days you don't feel like wearing makeup, tinted moisturizer is your skin savior, offering just enough coverage to even out skin tone and create a hint of luminous glow. It's easy to apply (just dab on as you would regular moisturizer) and feels weightless on your skin. Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer ($42) is our go-to pick for its sheer, natural finish.

2Spray toner

We can't get enough of facial mists and toners that come in spray bottles for instant, on-the-go complexion energizers. Stash a bottle in your purse and mist your face anytime your skin feels dry or you need a pick-me-up. The fine mist is great for setting makeup and giving your face a glow. Philosophy Hope Springs Eternal Deep Sea Ultra-Fine Hydrating Mist ($20) is a great choice for its refreshing properties, uplifting scent and ability to deliver moisture to your skin quickly.

3Illuminator

When you haven't slept in days -- and it shows, you need a little something extra to get your glow back. Keeping an illuminator (or highlighter) in your makeup bag will make a noticeable difference to your complexion. Our pick: Nars Orgasm Illuminator ($29).

4Concealer

A good under-eye concealer is a definite makeup must; after all, no one looks good (or young) with dark circles under her eyes. Try Clinique All About Eyes Concealer ($16) for an oil-free formula that won't settle into fine lines and creases. It also does double-duty by helping to reduce puffiness.

5Mask

No time for a facial? Get the next best thing to a revitalizing spa treatment with a mask. Put it on, relax for a few minutes, rinse and enjoy refreshed, healthier, younger-looking skin. Bliss Triple Oxygen Instant Energizing Mask ($52) is essential for younger-looking skin. Benefits include a brighter, fresher face and more even texture and tone.
