All about the skin – Dewy Makeup Trend
After working as a professional makeup artist for over a decade, makeup has always been about the skin. “Skin is in” is my motto and it’s the canvas for any makeup application.
Good skin starts with a regular skin care regime and I highly recommend wearing sunscreen everyday, all year round. One of my favourite sunscreens, is the Function A Lab Tinted Sunscreen SPF50.
In creating a glowy look, the products you choose are important. A must have product is the Vita Liberata Beauty Blur. This 3-in-1 tinted face primer evens out skin tone, helps cover imperfections and gives the most radiant skin finish. Beauty Blur comes in shades cafe creme to latte dark.
Another incredible product that’s good for a nice natural glow is Bodyography’s Sun Defense Tinted Moisturizer. Protect and perfect your skin with this dewy moisturizer. Bonus – it’s Vegan, Cruelty-Free and Gluten-Free. When applying the beauty blur or tinted moisturizer, use a beauty blender to create an airbrushed look to the skin. Remember to wet. squeeze. bounce when using your blender!
For a sun- kissed makeup look, adding a bronzer is super pretty. If you are looking for a self tan option for the face, try the Vita Liberata Self Tanning Anti Age Serum. This serum gives your a gradual face tan and reduces lines and wrinkles. A tan and anti aging – that’s a perfect combo.
A great choice for a powdered bronzer is the Bodyography bronzer in “sun-kissed.” Apply anywhere the sun would naturally kiss you!
A dewy look is never complete without a good highlighter. There is a trick to applying highlights as you want to look like you are glowing from within. The Inner Glow Stick from Bodyography is a universal shade that flatters all skin tones and creates delicate, glass skin.
Apply highlighter to accentuate bone structure and create a shimmering glow to your makeup look. To keep that fresh dewy application but still adding a pop of colour to the cheeks, my go to is Bodyography’s cream blush. These mineral -based blushes give you a natural looking flush to the skin. Apply to the apples of your cheeks and blend.
Now that we have covered the skin, let’s talk about brows. Natural looking brows are on trend and Billion Dollar Brows has the best selection of shades and tones. Avoid overdrawn brows but lightly filled in brows can be so beautiful and really frame the face. The Billion Dollar Brow Duo Pencil is perfect for highlighting your brow arch to give you an instant brow lift! I love the tones for brows from the Billion Dollar Brow product line, there is something for everyone. I personally love using the brow pomade applied with an angled brow brush. Then brush up your brows and place with brow gel.
For a gorgeous natural eyeshadow that’s also long lasting, I love Danessa Myricks Colorfix 24 hour Cream Color. There are so many gorgeous colours including shimmering ones too. The colorfix creams can also be used on the lips and face.
To finish off your eye look, applying a few coats of mascara as that’s always a win! Two of my favourite mascaras are M.A.C. Haute & Naughty and Arbonne Speaks Volumes Mascara. To complete your dewiness, a must have is the Flesh Beauty Fleshpot Eye + Cheek Gloss. A little goes a long way and it stays put! Made for daily use. You can also put a little on the lips for a gorgeous shine.
And last but not least, a nude glass for the lips. Sara Happ Nude Lipgloss is magic and looks great on everyone! It’s the perfect nude. If you are looking for a little plump to your lips with beautiful clear sheen, the Function A Lab Lip Collagen Glass gives you the perfect kissable lips.
Always remember- less is more!
