Runways bring us fashion trends from across the globe with respect to not just clothes and accessories, but also that of makeup. The time’s up for contouring and sculpting, as they finally make way for sheerer and more natural looks. Beginning spring-summer 2018, get ready to flaunt your skin in its entirety with a fresh, dewy face. The great news is that you can sport this versatile look in many ways, from all-over dewy face to glossy cheekbones, temples, eyelids, and lips. Here are a few tips to champion this look.
Healthy skin is key
Dewy makeup is about being minimal and sporting a barely-there look. When exposing your skin underneath, you want it to look as flawless as possible. This comes with good skincare. So, don’t forget to cleanse, tone, and moisturise your face well. If oily skin bothers you, stick to gel-based formulations so that they don’t feel too heavy on your skin.
Go light on foundations and concealers
Dewy makeup needs to be sheer and lightweight. So, opt for light foundations or BB creams such as Maybelline New York Clear Glow All In One BB Cream in place of full coverage ones. Concealing flaws is still important, but don’t go overboard covering up spots or freckles. Instead, let the texture of the skin show through, and use a concealer only to cover dark under eye circles and blemishes. Correcting pens like the BeYu Hydro Miracle Concealer Miracle Peach are a great choice for such needs.
Use powder only where necessary
Setting powders often mattify the skin, so use them only when you have skin that’s prone to turning greasy, or on areas like your T-zone where you do not want your skin to be slimy. To keep your look as natural as possible, opt for a translucent powder like the BeYu Transparent Fixing Powder.
Highlight one or more facial features
You can sport the dewy look all over your face with Faces Ultime Pro Metaliglow or choose to highlight certain facial features with Faces Ultimate Pro Illuminating Powder or Maybelline New York Face Studio Master Strobing Stick. The high points on the cheekbones, temples, nose ridge, and eyelids, are all areas that are great for highlighting.
Also, don’t forget to add colour to your cheeks with a pale rose or peach coloured blush.
Gloss up your lips
The dewy look isn’t restricted to your skin alone, so apply a lip gloss to your lips to seal the deal! For a not-so-subtle look, pick a coloured one like the Colorbar USA Diamond Shine Lip Gloss or stick to the usual clear gloss.
