Even though our skin gets a little drier and looks a bit duller in the winter months, we want to keep that healthy glow as much as possible. Luckily, we have makeup to help! These 5 easy steps can help you achieve a nice dewy makeup look.
Step 1: Moisturize
Of course, the very first step is to apply a moisturizer that is right for your skin. Especially when you have dry skin, a good moisturizer is the key to a fresh-looking makeup look. Not only does it create a nice base for the makeup, but it also hydrates the skin and makes it smoother.
Step 2: Dewy Foundation
Instead of going for a foundation that has a matte finish, try a foundation that gives you a natural finish and looks dewy on the skin. Not only does a dewy foundation give you that healthy glow, but it also hydrates the skin at the same time. My favorite product, for example, is the Mac Studio Fix Fluid foundation. It offers full coverage while still looking very natural and luminous.
Step 3: Less Powder Is Better
Once we have on our dewy-looking foundation, we want to set it in place to make sure it lasts all day long. Applying loads of powder, though, will only make your skin look less natural. Instead, use a big fluffy powder brush and lightly dust a bit of powder onto the skin to achieve a more natural look. If you do not like the appearance of powder at all, you can always opt for a makeup setting spray.
Step 4: Cream Blush
I absolutely love adding a bit of blush to the cheeks to complete the makeup look. But when my skin gets drier during the colder months, putting on a powder blush can make my dry skin more noticeable. That is why a cream blush is an amazing alternative. Since there are a wide range of different shades on the market, you can choose from many amazing shades while adding a bit of a glow to the cheeks.
Step 5: Highlighter
The last step is highlighter. Highlighters come in so many different finishes and shades that there is a perfect highlighter for everyone. Apply the highlighter on top of your cheekbones, right above your blush, to complete your dewy makeup look.
If you want healthy-looking, dewy makeup this fall and winter, then follow these simple steps and your skin will be glowing! I hope that you found these tips helpful and that you have fun trying them.
