Like most women, we’re multi-taskers, so of course we appreciate a product that pulls a double shift. Working over time is L’Oréal Paris’ Magic Lumi Light Infusing Primer, an illuminating fluid that, when worn under makeup, acts as a primer and when applied solo is an all-over face brightener. Mix a couple of squirts into your foundation to create a poreless and smooth texture.
