How to Glow Like Nicole Richie

Last week I made an appearance in Beverly Hills to attend the Wallis Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts Inaugural Gala, presented by Salvatore Ferragamo. Despite the incredible fashion by the Italian luxury mastermind and mind-blowing theatrics, I couldn't take my eyes off of the gloriously glowing skin spotted on a slew of top style stars, namely Nicole Richie.

My run in with Richie got me thinking: How do celebrities do it? You know, how do they manage to maintain flawless skin 24-7, even during transitional weather? Besides having superhuman genes, a bottomless budget and first-rate access to the globe's best beautifiers (no big deal), they stick to a strict regimen that involves a clean diet, frequent hydration and a quality skincare routine.

Once you nail those three steps, it's all about the products you use. Here are four winners that I'll be reaching for this fall to keep me glowing (sans oil) all season:

1. Marcelle BB Cream Golden Glow: Blend this semi-sheer all-in-one over just-cleaned skin for an easy shimmer.

2. BY TERRY Hyaluronic Face Glow: The love child of a primer and a light foundation, a thin layer of this tinted formula goes a long way.

3. Juice Beauty Stem Cellular Repair CC Cream: Fuller coverage than a BB cream but just as light-feeling, with (bonus!) anti-aging properties.

4. Elizabeth Arden Visible Difference Skin Balancing Lotion: Moisturized skin is glow-y skin, and this formula promises to keep your face hydrated for a full 24 hours.
