Some oil serums simply smell too funky to wear out during the day, but that’s not the case with this product (the scent is understated and agreeable). Oftentimes oils aren’t the right texture to allow for makeup application on top, but this one actually multitasks as an effective primer. Even though it’s an oil, the Botanical E Youth Preservation Serum doesn’t disturb makeup but instead helps to impart a dewy finish.

On no-makeup days, top it off with Tatcha Silken Pore Perfecting Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 35 PA+++ after letting the serum sink into the skin for at least 10 minutes during my morning routine. When wear makeup, simply dot Hourglass Vanish Seamless Finish Foundation Stick along my t-zone and any problem areas, then gently blend with a Beautyblender.
For more coverage, apply a small amount of Givenchy Teint Couture Everwear Foundation ($52) directly onto the Beautyblender, then gently dab all over and blend for a subtle, natural-looking finish.
