Women and their many moods! One day we want our foundation to have a matte finish and the next day, dewy.

Wet your makeup sponge

Most women either use a makeup brush or their fingers to apply foundation, while this is completely alright, a makeup sponge can totally change the look of your base. Makeup sponges can be used both wet and dry, however, a wet makeup sponge not only absorbs less makeup and gives an even finish but it also gives you a dewy base.

Argan oil

Rightly called liquid gold, we know how Argan oil is beneficial for the skin. And guess what, it can easily give your skin a dewy and glowy look without making it too greasy. Simply take a few drops of liquid foundation on the back of your hand and mix a few drops of the Lakmé Absolute Argan Oil Radiance Overnight Oil-in-Serum into it. Apply all over face and neck and blend well to get a natural looking dewy look.

Liquid highlighter

Another neat little trick is to mix a few drops of a liquid highlighter into your foundation. Make sure the textures of the two products match, otherwise it will pill. This will give you a lit-from-within glow and if your foundation is a bit drying on your skin, will rectify that problem as well.
