Our sun-kissed summer skin may have faded but just because we’ve spent more time hiding indoors this rainy season doesn’t mean we should stick to having a dull complexion. Luckily for us, there are a few products that fake a healthy glow by using it alone, as a makeup base, mixing it with foundation, or applying it over makeup. These illuminating products instantly give a brighter, more youthful look and should definitely be added to your morning beauty routines.
