If this past fashion month taught us anything, it's that the fresh-faced, dewy look isn't going away anytime soon. The paradox of that covetable effortless look, however, is that it requires effort. Thankfully, it doesn't have to take a lot of time to look like you took no time, though. All you need are the right products and, well, a nice night's sleep. (Rest is beauty hack numero uno.) Don't worry about the latter, though. We've found the perfect cure for our tired skin. With the help of Clinique and Jessi Malay, we're here to show you how to get that ideal glow in less than 10 steps. Even if you can't get eight hours of shut-eye, at lease your complexion will look like you did.
