Having dewy, luminous skin is a highly sought after makeup look but, to the surprise of many, it only takes a few products to achieve. To create the ultimate dewy makeup look, we recommend investing in a hydrating primer. This will moisturise the skin, preparing it for foundation and helping to maintain hydration throughout the day. Next, apply a luminous foundation. A dewy foundation with a more glowy, silky finish compared to a matte foundation will provide for a healthy, natural glow. Finally, for some extra shine apply a radiant highlighter to make your look really pop.
What is the best dewy primer?
Primer helps to smoothen the skin’s surface and lock in moisture in order to provide a good base for your foundation. So, the best hydrating primer is one that not only fills in your pores but also works to strengthen your moisture barrier, protecting the skin throughout the day. A moisturising primer should allow your makeup to stay on all day without flaking or drying out your skin. A good dewy primer should also make applying foundation a lot easier by reducing fine lines, wrinkles, and blemishes.
What is the best hydrating foundation?
If you struggle with dry skin, just as important as using a moisturising primer, is using a hydrating foundation. While a hydrating primer will help to prep your skin before you apply makeup, the foundation you use will determine both the look and longevity of your face makeup. As a general rule of thumb, a foundation with a more glowy finish tends to be more hydrating than those that are matte.
