ROCK THIS GODDESS DEWY LOOK
By Mehak Munaf.
Who else is feeling the dewy goddess look with skin so luminous that even the moon’s jealous? Gone are the days where the powdered down matte foundation look with not a trace of shine or shimmer was considered the perfect foundation look. Fast forward 2020 the game is quite different. Looking dewy is the hottest makeup trend that is every MUA’s current obsession and catching on amongst our very hot babes. Just check out Iqra Aziz pulling off this simply elegant but dewy cool look.
We’ve found some of the hottest products out there that deliver this perfect goddess-vibe look, that is all a glowy and selfie-ready!
Make the famous phrase, “Skin first, makeup second,” a practice in your life. This was a term coined by the ultimate skincare portal Glossier and a constant endeavor at Soorat. A proper skincare routine is an irreplaceable and long term step towards achieving healthy and glowing skin. Some basics to consider for this look are cleansing, toning, and following with a good hydrating serum or in the case of this routine a great sheet mask. Try Sk ii’s facial mask for skin that is fully hydrated. Finish by applying a luminous moisturizer. Your skin is now fully prepped but not primed.
Makeup Second. It’s prime time
Using a great primer is a vital step to get this hot look. Start with a matte primer, as you’ll want to create the perfect canvas for this glowing look. Ditch the illuminating one. Yes, we know it may sound crazy but trust us you will still end with a perfectly gorgeous dewy finish. You'll be skipping setting powder altogether for this look as well, as you need to create a base to prevent shine and oil overload. We are loving Benefit’s Porefessional primer. This formula is slip-free and guarantees that your makeup will last for hours and fill the pores for a perfect base. Pat the primer with your fingertips to allow the skin to absorb it more evenly.
The Real Game
Now’s the time to get even. Grab an illuminating foundation like the Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation that gives a perfect silk finish to the face. Add a few drops of liquid highlighter in it and apply it to your face using a damp beauty sponge. This will allow the makeup to go on light and smooth. If you need to cover any spots or blemishes, use a cream concealer under your eyes and on the tips of your nose and chin. Blend well into the skin.
When going for natural, luminous skin, there are two things to keep in mind with applying blush. Don't go overboard and blend well. For a naturally flushed look, cream-based blushes are good to go like the Fenty shimmer stix. Just apply the blush to the apples of your cheeks, blend it with your fav beauty blender. If you don’t have one, check out our Jeffree Star’s hot pink Beauty sponge trio.
For added gloss, you can even apply lip balm to the top of your cheekbone area in a c-shape for a natural glossy glow, this is one of Miranda Kerr’s beauty hack that we stumbled on.
Pout It Glossy
A glossy pout on a dewy face is definitely a win-win. It actually completes the feeling of a dewy look. Outline your lips with a rose pink nude lip pencil and blend it with just a few swipes of Rimmel London Oh my GLOSS! This will give your pout a luxurious and natural shine.
Ready, Set, Dew!
To finish the dewy look from top to bottom, spritz your face with the Too faced 3 in 1 primer and setting spray. It is A weightless, three-in-one coconut water-infused mist that primes, sets, and refreshes makeup while it helps keep skin hydrated. This will leave your makeup looking radiant but shine-free and fixed for hours.
