1. Juice Beauty Stem Cellular CC Cream


“My rule of thumb when it comes to products—particularly ones that are going to stay on your skin, like foundation—is that they should be so effective, they act like a treatment for your skin,” says Walker. This is her go-to CC cream because it’s hydrating and protects with SPF 30.

2. Jane Iredale Glow Time Full Coverage Mineral BB Cream and Juice Beauty Phyto-Pigments Illuminating Primer


Walker likes to mix equal amounts of these two products when she’s going for less coverage than a CC cream. “I use this combo instead of concealer on blemishes or darkness under the eyes,” she says.

Walker’s secret to the no-makeup makeup look: Sweep this bronzer across your cheekbones. Bonus: If you’re using a powder blush, smudge this creamy bronzer underneath to help hold it in place.

4. Jane Iredale PurePressed Eye Shadow Triple in Pink Quartz


Even if you’re going for a minimalist look, smudging a little eyeshadow on your lids will brighten your eyes—and keep your mascara from migrating. Says Walker: “I use the pad of my ring finger rather than a brush for a more natural look.”
