Question: How can I achieve the dewy makeup look?
Answer: Nothing, I repeat nothing is more perfect in the summer than having beautiful, dewy-looking skin. Believe it or not, the look is super easy to achieve and takes a matter of minutes. In fact, I rely on only a few key products to give me that summertime glow both on my face, and on my body! Here are some simple tips to get that perfect dewy makeup look quickly and easily.
For a flawless dewy face, start at the base with a good primer, which gives your skin that “glow-from-within” effect. A great, affordable drugstore option is the L’Oreal Magic Lumi Light Infusing Primer. It brightens up your face, fakes a full night of sleep, and leaves your skin looking refreshed and awake. Apply this product before your foundation. Or, mix a small amount of primer in with your foundation of choice and apply the mixture to your face with a beauty blender. Be sure to blend, blend, blend! You don’t want harsh lines anywhere on your face!
Highlighting is the single fastest way to change your makeup look without too much effort. Invest in a great cream highlighter and totally change the way you apply your makeup! My personal favorite is Benefit’s Girl Meets Pearl. It beautifully illuminates the face and blends flawlessly into the skin. If that’s a bit too expensive, there are many bargain brands out there that get the job done at just a fraction of the price.
Apply the highlight to the high points of your face, like the bridge of your nose, your cheekbones, your cupid’s bow, your chin, and in an inverted triangle between your eyebrows on your forehead. Again, don’t forget to blend! Here’s a fantastic visual guide if you need a reference.
If you’re highlighting your face, then why not highlight the rest of your body as well? Victoria’s Secret and Mark. Cosmetics both sell fantastic lotions that have a beautiful and natural-looking shimmer to them. Just apply the product down the center of your legs and arms for a beachy bombshell look.
