Over the past year or so, we have seen many beauty trends come and go. From crazy contouring to shimmery highlighters and matte looks, makeup’s different trends have changed the game. Although trends are constantly evolving, there is one look that stays around forever: dewy skin. Dewy skin makes us look younger and fresher by giving our skin a dazzling glow we all long to have, especially in the summer. So how do you get this look? We’ve listed the best ways and products to achieve dewy summer skin without overdoing it: remember, less is more! Read on to glow all summer long.
Before using any products, prepare your skin by cleansing and moisturizing. Without this step, your skin may seem a little dull. Plus, it prevents pimples from forming, making it easier for makeup to be applied. It doesn’t hurt to drink water for clearer, hydrated skin either!
We’ve all heard the wonders coconut oil has done for hair, so why should it stop at dewy skin? Use your favorite jar of coconut oil, butter up your fingers, press it into your skin, and voilà! You’ve just achieved a glow that will leave your friends asking what your secret is.
Vaseline isn’t called the original wonder jelly for no reason. Not only is it used for cuts and dry skin, but for that natural glow we’re all seeking. Dab a dime-size amount of Vaseline using your finger onto cheeks, lips, and eyelids. You’ll be surprised as to how good this vintage product works on your skin!
Foundation with Dewy Finish
For those with dry skin, Maybelline’s Fit Me Dewy + Smooth Foundation is for you. With SPF 18 that hydrates and smoothes skin texture, you will be left with a natural, luminous finish. Say goodbye to dry, dull skin for the season and hello to moisture! You could also try Neutrogena Healthy Skin Liquid Makeup. Finding products that don’t contribute to more oil and finding that perfect balance between oily and dewy skin in the summer isn’t so easy. With silky-light coverage and SPF 20, this liquid foundation has become one of my favorites. After applying with a damp sponge, your skin instantly looks and feels fresh without feeling greasy and caked on. Bring on the dew!
Lock in and prolong makeup by spritzing a fan favorite product, NYX Dewy Setting Spray. Being lightweight, you won’t feel a thing but dewy all summer long!
