Kaia Gerber may be 17 years old but make no mistake, she’s not a normal teenager. She’s a cool teenager. Forget about all of those awkward teenage years because she went ahead and bypassed all of them. Overplucked eyebrows? Poor beauty routines? Not on her mother Cindy Crawford‘s watch! Gerber didn’t just win the genetic lottery, she hit the beauty routine jackpot, too!

She may have inherited her good eyebrows from her supermodel mom but she also learned a thing or two about makeup along the way! So of course when looking to look her best, she turns to the best products! Gerber, who is the face of the YSL beauty brand, turns to this small-but-mighty product when looking to highlight her most prominent and dominant features. In fact, she even admitted she always keeps this product in her bag!

The Yves Saint Laurent Touche Éclat All-Over Brightening Pen is the easy-to-use product that will have all of Us mastering our beauty routines. In a handy pen, the Touche Éclat instant highlighter is the multi-functional, grab-and-go product we too should keep in our purse. It’s the all-in-one product that can be used to lighten, brighten and highlight just about every area of our faces.

Maybe we’re looking to highlight a certain area of our faces. Great! This highlighter will add a touch of light to our cheekbones, cupid’s bow or even our foreheads! But that’s not all it can do.

This instant highlighter is just as effective when looking to banish any of those unwanted shadows on our faces. Yes, we’re speaking of those dark circles or signs of fatigue that are surrounding the eye area or hollow of our chins. This product looks to not only brighten and lighten up those areas but it can also contour the lips and sides of our noses, too.

But that’s not even the best part. It’s the perfect product when looking to approach our makeup routines with a less-is-more mindset.

While attending Coachella, Gerber caught up with Refinery29 to talk all things beauty-related. When asked what her favorite, must-have products were as of late, the YSL brand ambassador admitted she always has this highlighting pen on hand.

“I carry it with me all of the time because it fits right in my bag,” Gerber told Refinery29. The supermodel explained that her “less is more” beauty approach is all about minimalism. She likes to keep her routine simple and easy, as she only relies on a few essentials, including this YSL lip balm, too!

Gerber is not alone in her feelings about the Touche Éclat, either. Hundreds of reviewers also happen to be fangirling not over this iconic pen. Across the board, reviewers were left smitten, with a handful calling it a miracle worker. Others called it the holy grail of their makeup cabinets and we happen to agree.

With 11 shades to select from, there is nothing but versatility. Going a shade lighter will cover, conceal and even highlight while going a shade darker can help accentuate cheekbones, too. As we said, it’s the ultimate all-in-one product.

So of course, when looking to go above and beyond, why not reach for this game-changing highlighter? After all, it’s the one Kaia Gerber doesn’t leave the house without.
