The word glowy carries more than one definition. For some, it’s simply dewy skin. For others, it’s liquid makeup that looks luminous instead of greasy. Sometimes, it’s a mix of the two. However you choose to look at it, there’s no mistaking glowy skin when you see it…it just is. And while a healthy skin-care routine and makeup appropriate for your specific needs and concerns definitely helps the cause, there are some finds that have achieved best-seller status because they can brighten your complexion in a mere minutes.

Whether they’re new kids on the blocks or old pros that have been on store shelves for years, these are the top-rated products that’ll deliver the ultimate glow-up if your vitamin C serum isn’t working as quickly as you’d like.
