The days of heavy contour and OTT trends need to make way for the latest killer look: “No Makeup” makeup. Yep, it’s a thing and we’re digging it! It’s all about looking natural and fresh – but with minimal effort. The easiest way to achieve this? Hydration. It helps create dewiness, which is the backbone of this look. So say it with us (and don’t forget it!): DEW. IS. YOUR. FRIEND.
The key to achieving a natural, dewy look is with a hydrating base, such as Master Prime Perfecting Primer Hydration. Not only will it add wanted moisture and dew, but it will illuminate and smooth fine lines.
A good concealer does far more than cover, it’s a little magic wand for hiding dark circles and camouflaging blemishes. Using Instant Age Rewind Eraser Dark Circles Treatment Concealer, spot treat sparingly where you need it and blend it out using your fingers. Your body heat will help work the concealer in for a natural touch.
Using foundation? Your approach with foundation should be less is more. Apply in very light layers rather than applying too much at once, slowly building coverage. Opt for a dewy formula, such as Dream Liquid Satin which is lightweight and enriched with hydrating serum. Try mixing it with a pump of hydrating serum, patting it onto the skin for even more dew and glow.
Love a BB Cream? Skip the foundation for an even lighter, dewier option. Dream Satin BB is an 8-in-1 cream that brightens, smooths and hydrates the skin (just a few of its many talents!). Blend it like liquid foundation – with a good brush or sponge.
Even natural makeup requires a little colour to create a glowing look. Lightly dust City Bronzer onto your cheekbones and up and diagonally to just underneath the outer corner of your eye.
To give your face a cheeky and healthy glow, dab a cream blush like Dream Matte Blush to the apples of your cheeks – which you can find by smiling in the mirror. If all you have on hand is powder blush, forgo it entirely and instead dab a small amount of pink lipstick lightly to your cheekbones (who doesn’t love a good hack!).
If there’s a time for bushy, unruly brows to take the spotlight, it’s now! First, colour and shape your brows with Eyestudio Brow Satin Define + Fill Duo for a natural, fuller look. Using the spoolie, brush your brows up and away from your face.
It’s not just your skin that needs nourishment – your lashes need it too! Not only does Lash Sensational Serum create fuller looking lashes in just 4 weeks, it’s conditioning ingredients will make them look healthier too. Apply and once dry, apply a coat of Lash Sensational Mascara for a natural, full-fanning effect. Apply mascara to the upper lid only to avoid unwanted smudging under the eye.
Time for the final touch! Choose a lip shade that compliments your natural lip colour to complete the look. Baby Lips Loves Color adds a subtle pop of colour while also moisturising and hydrating your lips (win win!).
Now it’s time to set and forget! Facestudio Master Fix Setting Spray is a lightweight and translucent mist that’ll lock in your dewy look and keep it fresh too!
