There’s something about a fresh-faced glow that seems so right during the spring and summer months. Naturally, there’s a fine line between achieving a dewy, fresh glow and appearing overly oily. Finding the balance can be tricky, and many women are a bit afraid to try the dewy look in fear they’ll end up looking overly greasy. But there are a few ways to help you achieve the dewy look, easily. We’re breaking down a few must-know tips on how to get dewy skin this season.
Choose a Super Hydrating Moisturizer
Having skin that’s incredibly hydrated and moisturized is essential to achieving this look. You will want to apply the moisturizer just before you start applying your makeup. Because you’re going for a dewy look, you’re going to want a moisturizer that has some oil in it to enhance the look. Something like the Lionesse Gem Diamond Cream, which contains avocado oil, is a great option for achieving this look. It will also give you a great base to start with for dewy skin.
Since the dewy skin look is, well… dewy, you’re going to want to make sure that you’re staying extra hydrated when looking to achieve this look. Because the look is giving the skin that gorgeous glow, you want to stay away from anything that could make your skin look too dry. Amp up your water intake to ensure you’re well hydrated.
Choosing the right foundation is crucial to the dewy look. You’re going to want to look for a foundation that has more of a glow, or satin type of finish to it. Stay away from matte finish foundations for this look. If your skin is on the dry side, opt for a foundation that has more of a sheer coverage to it. This will help make sure that your skin doesn’t appear too dry when applying your foundation.
Use Cream Based Products
Since this look is all about creating that fresh-faced glow, it’s important to use more liquid and cream based products than powder. So when applying blush for this, use a cream blush. Simply use your fingers (clean fingers) to apply the cream blush to the apples of your cheeks. Highlighting is key to achieving a gorgeous dewy look. Use a liquid or cream highlighting product (again avoiding the powders here). You’ll want to apply this product to the top of the cheekbones and just lightly up the temple area. Adding a highlighter is great for adding that extra glow.
Lighten Up the Powder
Typically, in makeup application, powder is used to set your products to hold them in place. However, since you’re looking for more of a dewy finish you actually want to have a light hand with the powder products. Powder products tend to leave you with a more matte type of finish – the opposite of what you’re looking to achieve. So use just a light amount, especially if you have dry skin or skip it altogether if you can.
Using these tips are sure to help you achieve a natural, dewy glow this season. Happy glowing!
