Start with a clean surface
Before you begin your makeup, make sure your skin is thoroughly cleansed, toned and moisturised for the makeup to sit well. Use a hydrating cleanser, alcohol-free toner and a light-weight, gel based moisturiser for best results.
Foundation + Facial oil
Once your skin is well-prepped, it’s time for foundation. Take about 3-4 pumps of your foundation on your foundation brush (remember to not go overboard with it as it might look cakey—it needs to look like second skin and not a layer). Then, lightly dip the brush in your favourite facial oil and buff the product right in—this will give you a luminous finish at once without having to layer too many products on your skin.
You can’t do dewy skin without a touch of highlighter—but don’t go all out and blind people with an ultra-reflective sheen on your face. Use a low-density brush such as a fan brush to dust it lightly on the high points of your face. Remember, you need a teeny tiny amount of product as you’re applying it all over your face to create an illusion of overall dewy skin, so, a little goes a long way!
BB Picks: Lakmé Absolute Moonlit Highlighter
If you have oily skin, mattify it first by using a primer. Next, dot some BB Cream all over your face and then go in with a brightening concealer that’s a shade lighter than your skin tone. Apart from your dark circles, apply it on the bridge and tip of your nose and center of the forehead for a dewy glow.
Instead of setting your makeup with powder (which will make it look matte and sometimes, even powdery), spritz a face mist that helps lock in the moisture and maintains the glow!
