Dewy, minimal makeup is all the rage right now, but no one does it better than Ananya Panday. The actress has naturally flawless and glowing skin, and she never misses a chance to flaunt it. Take one look at her social media profile, and you will know what we are talking about.

Ananya has aced the technique of creating the freshest looking base makeup. This, along with the perfect pop of colour, makes the actress glow like a goddess. Post pandemic, the focus has shifted to minimalistic makeup looks, and here are five fresh, and dewy makeup looks you can copy from the actress.


01. Tinted lip balm look

This picture from Ananya’s beach vacay is the freshest looking of them all. The actress has no makeup on other than a tinted lip balm that makes her lips look naturally pink and moisturised. You can also dab some on your cheeks for added glow.

02. Highlighter on point

Highlighter on point

Whether it's a beach vacay or festive occasion, a simple base and dewy skin is Ananya’s go-to makeup look. We love how effortlessly gorgeous her minimal makeup looks with her bright pink outfit. The key is to place the highlighter on the areas where the light hits your face. Dust some on the bridge of the nose, cupids bow, chin and cheekbones to achieve this look.

03. Flushed cheeks

Flushed cheeks

Creating a dewy base is not all that difficult, just add a few drops of facial oil to your foundation to get that lit-from-within glow and keep the rest of the makeup minimal. Take cues from Ananya who prefers to dab a little bit of blush on her cheeks and swipes the same across her eyelids to look naturally gorgeous. Pair it with your favourite nude lipstick, and you’re good to go!

04. Subtle smokey eye

Even when it comes to sporting a bold eye makeup look, Ananya likes to keep it subtle. Take your fresh and dewy makeup look a notch higher by creating a subtle smokey eye. Don’t forget to fill in your brows and contour your cheeks to get this minimal yet dramatic makeup look.

05. Fuller lashes

Fuller lashes

Sometimes a dewy makeup look and fuller lashes are all you need to look fresh and awake. If your mornings are busy, this is the best way to get ready in a few minutes. Create a smooth base and apply two coats of mascara and finish off with a nude lipstick.
