1. Don't skimp on moisturizer.

OK, this is technically a skin-care tip, but it's actually helpful to think of it as a step in your makeup routine because it's the best way to achieve a dewy, glowy complexion before you even think about busting out the highlighter. "Spend extra time massaging [moisturizer] in to boost skin's natural glow," says makeup artist Nick Barose. "Be generous with it, and don't forget your neck." In need of a good moisturizer? We've already vetted these Best of Beauty winners, or you can try any one of these favorites.

2. Know when to moisturize.

Hydration is clearly crucial, but Washington D.C.-based makeup artist Erwin Gomez shared an extra hack: Be sure to moisturize when your skin is still damp after showering. "This is the optimal time to give your freshly steamed and washed skin its much-needed hydration," says Gomez. He reaches for products such as Fresh's Vitamin Nectar Glow Juice Antioxidant Face Serum, which features vitamins C and E for added radiance.

3. Stay away from anything too powdery.

"Powder can make fair skin look duller," says Barose. Instead, he recommends using a moisturizing CC cream that's one shade warmer than your skin tone. "I'm a fan of Giorgio Armani Beauty Luminessence CC Color Control Brighten Moisturizer SPF 35 because it has a subtle reflective pigment in it," he says. Another excellent option that contains sun protection is Supergoop's CC Cream Daily Correct Broad Spectrum SPF 35 Sunscreen.
