Dewy, glowing skin is having a huge moment right now with celebrities and influencers flaunting this makeup look just about everywhere. From red carpet events to magazine cover shoots, the petal-fresh, lit-from-within glow definitely has a lot of takers.
While it may seem like the people flaunting this fresh and glowing skin are naturally born with it, it’s far from the truth. What if we told you that with the right makeup products and application techniques, you too can achieve this trending makeup look in no time?
Here’s a step-by-step guide to help you master this look:
Step 01: Prep
To achieve the dewy makeup, it’s necessary to prep the skin well because your make looks a lot better on healthy, well-moisturised skin. Start with massaging a coin-sized amount of the Dermalogica Intensive Moisture Balance all over your face and neck. Wait for about five minutes before moving on to the next step — this allows the moisturiser to sink into your skin for better hydration.
Step 02: Prime
It’s now time to prime your skin with the Lakme Absolute Blur Perfect Makeup Primer. Applying a primer helps fill in the pores, blur skin imperfections, smoothen out skin texture and creates the perfect canvas for your makeup to go on. Plus, it also helps your makeup last way longer. Concentrate more on those areas that tend to get oily such as your T-zone, cheeks, chin, etc..
Step 03: Foundation
Now that your skin has is properly prepped for makeup, let’s move on to the foundation. Choose a dewy finish foundation such as the Lakme Absolute Argan Oil Serum Foundation and blend it into your skin using a damp makeup sponge. This will push the product into your skin and deliver a natural and skin-like finish. If you feel like you need more coverage, grab the Lakme Absolute White Intense SPF 20 Concealer Stick and apply a tiny bit over imperfections such as visible dark circles, blemishes, discolouration, etc..
Step 04: Blush and highlight
This is the most important step to create the dewy makeup look. Start with applying the Lakme 9 to 5 Pure Rouge Blusher - Peach Affair onto the apples of your cheek and blend it outwards for a flush of colour. Next, take the lighter shade from the Lakme Absolute Highlighter – Moon Lit and apply it to the high points of your face such as your cheekbones, the bridge of the nose, brow bone, chin and cupid’s bow. Although both these products are vital to fake fresh and healthy-looking skin, avoid going overboard as that could ruin your entire look.
Step 05: Setting spray
Ditch your usual compact powder, and spritz a generous amount of a setting spray all over your face. Do not dab or wipe it; instead, allow it to dry off on its own. This will not only lock all your makeup products in place but also give you that radiant and lit-from-within look.
