Best Bet: Watt’s Up Highlighter


It’s not even cold yet, but our sun-kissed skin tone has already faded. Though you can fake it with rosy blushes, Benefit’s new Watt’s Up highlighter gives you a dewy, Michelle Williams/Gwenyth Paltrow–esque glow without making you look like you’ve layered on the makeup. The champagne-colored stick is creamy, but blends like a powder with the sponge on the opposite end. The effect is a soft, barely there sheen that makes dull, water- and sleep-deprived skin look fresh.

$30 at Benefit, 454 W. Broadway, nr. Prince St. (opening Tuesday) or online.
