Come spring, glowing skin is about as groundbreaking as wearing florals, but it doesn’t make the appearance of a fresh-faced complexion any less desirable. Since radiant skin never goes out of style, there’s no better time than now to finally store the heavy duty formula you’ve relied on during winter. A lightweight version infused with ultra-fine mica will give your skin the effect of being on an ultralight beam—no strobing required. Read on for our six favorite picks that will give you a lit-from-within glow.

The reason why all bars have their lights turned down low and a tealight candle placed on each table: the flattering effect of the flickering candlelight dancing across one’s skin is unparalleled. Laura Mercier’s foundation bottles this atmosphere and glides onto the skin effortlessly to create a soft glow day or night.
