We can see it on the catwalk and on our favorite celebrities. But how can we, without the help of a professional makeup artist, achieve a dewy, glowing makeup look? I love this look for pretty much any time of year. But for spring and summer, it is the best look to go for as it just looks so fresh and bright. It is really pretty and feminine too. Which is what you want for warmer and sunnier weather, right? The glowy look can seem quite elusive, though, with only the likes of J.Lo achieving it. But here are some tips to help you perfect that dewy look that even Kim Kardashian would be proud of.
Stock Up On Coconut Oil
If you’re looking for a product that will help you to achieve some gloriously dewy skin, then coconut oil needs to be in your cupboard. It can be used in many ways, so it is the MVP of glowing skin. First of all, it can be used as a moisturizer. It can be rubbed onto your face and massaged in, as well as used as a lip balm. If you have any dry patches of skin or want to reduce lines around your mouth or eyes, then coconut oil is the thing to try. It can also be used as a highlighter too, because of it’s semi-solid nature. So think cheekbones, brow bones and down your nose. Instant shine and glow.
Invest in Rose Water
I have heard several Victoria’s Secret models swear by using rose water on their skin. One of the great uses of spraying rose water, or even moisturizing with rose water is that it helps to get rid of excess oil. So any extra shine on your face can be gone. It can also be used as a toner in your beauty regime to help close and tighten pores. It acts as an anti-inflammatory too. So if you often wake up with puffy eyes or some swollen or red skin, some rose water could be key to helping it.
It is a no-brainer that we need to use sunscreen in the warmer and sunnier weather. Ideally, we should be using one all year round. It helps to prevent our skin getting red or sunburnt, which can lead to soreness and things like sun spots on our skin. One of the easiest ways to make sure that you’re protecting your skin, especially your face, is to use a foundation with a built-in sunscreen. A brand like Chriszen moist cake foundation has sunscreen in it so could be good to go down that route. Look for moisturizers that have sunscreen in them too, as well as, of course, a regular sunscreen.
Use Eyeshadow To Highlight
If you’re not a massive fan of liquid highlighters, then it could be a good idea to use a gold, silver or white eyeshadow instead. Some people feel that they can never gauge how much shine a liquid highlighter gives. But with an eyeshadow, it might be a little easier to control.
