How to create a dewy makeup look that lasts all day
Luminous, dewy makeup is one of the most sought out trends to wear all year round. Here are our top tips for anyone looking to achieve the perfect dewy look and make sure it lasts!
1. Prep your skin
Prepping your skin with the right products ensures a hydrated, dewy look. Start by applying our Crème Généreuse in a sweeping motion across the face and neck, massaging it upwards and outwards to stimulate circulation. Next, use a mattifying primer. People often skip this step, but it’s key to ensuring your makeup lasts as it acts as a barrier between your skin and the makeup. A mat primer seems counterintuitive for the dewy look, but it’s what ensures a glowy, non-greasy look.
2. Choose mostly cream products
Cream foundations, blushes and other liquid products are the best options for this kind of look because they blend well into the skin and hold up during the day. Apply your liquid foundation using a damp beauty sponge to allow the makeup to go on lightly and give that glowy look to the skin. If you need to cover any spots or blemishes, use our cream skin perfectors and blend well into the skin using a damp beauty blender. To give yourself a naturally flushed look, apply a cream blush to the apples of your cheeks.
3.Create soft minimal eyes
Keeping your eye makeup natural is key for a dewy makeup look. First, apply our powder Cinnamon or Chocolate skin perfectors to your eyelids for a soft natural eyeshadow. On top, add some Gloss Exquis Laquer for that extra glowy look. You can also use our powder blushes if you want a more colorful, fun eyeshadow. After applying the shadow, follow up with mascara for full, thick lashes. Finally, don’t forget to fill in your brows and use our Soin Pyjama for an instant brow lift.
4. Don't skip the highlighter
Using a highlighter will bring your dewy skin to the next level. The purpose of this product is to catch the light on your face for radiant, healthy-looking skin. Apply it everywhere the light naturally hits your face: tops of cheekbones, the center of the nose, cupid’s bow and brow bone. This will create the illusion of radiant skin.
5. Finishing Touches
To finish your dewy makeup look, add lip gloss. You can choose to wear it on its own or on top of your lipstick. If you’re not a fan of lipgloss, you can also use a lip balm. Finally, lightly mist a hydrating setting spray over your face to lock in moisture and ensure your makeup lasts.
The result? Hydrated, dewy, luminous skin in no time.
