Achieving a no-makeup makeup look can sometimes be harder to accomplish than caking on foundation and gluing on false lashes. When we think no-makeup makeup goals, we think Kate Bosworth.

The best-sellers and editor-approved products that top this list boast lightweight formulas and are packed with moisture-rich ingredients.

Essie Nail Polish in Ballet Slippers
BEST FOR: Keeping short nails clean and chic
LOVED FOR: Essie's Ballet Slippers is the perfect pinky-nude shade to give nails a natural look without being bare.
theBalm Bahama Mama Bronzer
BEST FOR: Getting a natural tan and higher cheekbones all in one
LOVED FOR: Bronzers can be tough because they can turn skin from pale to orange in one foul brush stroke. This matte shade, however, is perfect for attaining a true tanned look.
Jane Iredale PurePressed Blush in Barely Rose
BEST FOR: A universally flattering shade
USERS SAID: "Jane Iredale makes the best blush, hands down. This color, cotton candy, makes me have that perfect sun-kissed look without looking like makeup. It blends beautifully. The little shimmer is a bonus."
Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Gel
BEST FOR: Keeping brows in place without looking like they're glued on
HELPFUL TIP: Want a more subtle look? Use this gel in place of a brow pencil to simply enhance your natural brow shade.
Dior Diorskin Nude Luminizer Shimmering Glow Powder in Pink Glow
USERS SAID: "This highlighter is so natural looking and light, it literally looks like your naturally radiating all the time. Many other highlighters are heavy and bring out the appearance of blemishes but this product is lightweight and super easy to apply."
BEST FOR: Getting a glow without the glitter
LOVED FOR: Blinc is the OG tubing mascara that fights raccoon eyes all day long.
WHAT IT DOES: Rather than simply coating lashes, tubing mascaras actually wrap polymers around each lash like a tube to give you truly waterproof length and volume.
Fenty Beauty By Rihanna Gloss Bomb Universal Lip Luminizer
LOVED FOR: This lip luminizer plumps, conditions, and smells heavenly.
BEST FOR: Gloss that feels like a balm
Glossier Stretch Concealer
LOVED FOR: With key ingredients like avocado oil, cocoa butter, and beeswax, this concealer avoids the caked on texture and leaves a dewy, natural finish so that the only one who will know you're wearing it is you.
USERS SAID: "I tell everyone about this concealer, once you use it you will never pick up another concealer again. I have struggled with concealers drying out my skin and creasing under the eye but this little pot has changed the game."
Julep Eyeshadow 101 Crème to Powder Waterproof Eyeshadow Stick
LOVED FOR: The built-in blender and waterproof formula makes it easy to achieve an effortlessly smokey eye by smudging and then staying put.
ABOUT THE BRAND: Julep is inspired by its founder's Korean heritage, so each product is based on Korean skincare rituals, focused on simplicity, and created with SLS and paraben-free ingredients.
Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer Broad Spectrum SPF 20
LOVED FOR: Sheer coverage that moisturizes, protects, and enhances your natural complexion.
