The ceramide and hyaluronic acid formula in CeraVe Healing Ointment ($4, drugstores) is a multipurpose skin savior. Our favorite uses: smoothing it over our lids to refresh cakey eye shadow and then on our cheekbones for an illuminated effect. (Add it on top of one of these amazing highlighters for serious glow.)
