Glowing skin and shiny hair is a look that works no matter who you are, and this spring, it was all over the runways, from Missoni and Prada (the latter with the addition of outsize lashes) to Badgley Mischka and Michael Kors. The key: plenty of exfoliating and moisturizing (for both skin and hair), along with makeup that shows off your skin in its very best light.
Choose formulas made with clean skin-care ingredients
OG clean makeup company Jane Iredale has been boosting its formulas with clean skin-care ingredients since 1994; founder Jane Iredale helped pioneer the clean beauty space, focusing on nurturing skin (not to mention overall health and the environment) with every product. The company’s current bestseller—a beautifully pigmented pressed-powder foundation—is made with extracts of algae, pine, and pomegranate to nourish skin as it delivers SPF 15 or 20 (the SPF depends on the shade) and a natural-looking your-skin-but-better finish.
To give skin an even more flattering finish and to set the foundation, spritz on this mist made with skin-friendly aloe, pomegranate, rosemary, and olive leaf extracts (it sets any makeup). The combination is so helpful for skin that dermatologists and aestheticians around the world recommend it for sensitive skin or skin recovering from procedures.

Define subtly—with intense pigment
It’s counterintuitive, but use the inkiest-black mascara you can find. A single coat wakes your eyes right up, so you get all the definition you’re looking for without any of the visible texture you get from applying multiple coats. The result: glossy, fluttery, natural-looking lashes.
