1. Beauty Picks: Nars Illuminator
Verky Arcos Baldonado, Fashion Editor:
“Whenever I’m too lazy to put some makeup on, I’ll add some of this Nars Illuminator to my face and I’ll have the perfect, subtle glow.”
Nars Orgasm Illuminator, $30, NARScosmetics.com
2. beauty picks: Blackup's Microdermabrasion Gel
Dan Koday, Director of Digital:
"The reason I love blackUp Cosmetics' Micro-Dermabrasion is because it heats up when it makes contact with water. As you rub it on your skin, it feels like you're getting a facial at the spa, and afterwards, it leaves your skin even and refreshed thanks to the exfoliating beads, which wipe away dead skin cells."
BlackUp Cosmetics Micro-Dermabrasion Gel, $50, blackupcosmetics.com
3. Beauty Picks: YSL Creme Blush
Miranda Noland, Senior Photo Editor:
"I have 3 of the 4 colors because this is the best blush I have ever found. It only takes a little dab for a natural-looking flush that stays put for hours."

5. Beauty Picks: Olay Facial Cloths
Sally Mercedes, Digital Marketing Manager:
