10 Brightening Serums That Are So Good, You Can Toss Your Concealer

We all know (and love) what strategically placed highlighter or a touch of bronzer can do. That lighted-from-within glow that products can instantly provide has been the focus of many articles and makeup lines—and for good reason. It can transform you into an effervescent goddess, distract from imperfections, and, perhaps most importantly, make it look like you really did get a full night of beauty sleep. But what if, instead of creating that glow with makeup, you could wake up with naturally radiant skin?

Enter brightening serums, your key to getting the perfectly toned, even skin that we all dream about. These powerful products often contain potent antioxidants, like vitamin C, to help diminish dark spots, refine skin texture, and create an overall luminous complexion. By adding this one step to your routine (after cleansing but before moisturizing), you'll never have to rely solely on makeup to hide imperfections and deliver the glow you want. With claims like these, it's no wonder that almost every brand has a stake in the brightening realm. To help you choose which serum will be your new holy grail, we've rounded up favorites for every price point. Team Byrdie loves these too, so rest assured that they're tried-and-true.
