Winter is officially here, and so is the forever dry skin! This is the perfect season to get that dewy skin look that is all the rage right now. With matte, shineless look already a thing of the past this season, it takes a few easy steps to get the dewy skin of your dreams. SC tells you how!
Follow a regime to make your skin glow from the inside out. The regime is easy enough – hydrate loads (at least 8 – 10 glasses of water), exfoliate (twice a week), apply a hydrating face mask once a week, moisturize daily. If you’re doing it correct, your skin will glow naturally in just a couple of weeks.
For a dewy look created using makeup, here are a few helpful pointers.
Step 1 – Apply your prefered moisturiser (with SPF!) all over the face and neck. Or better yet, use a BB or CC cream, as it works as moisturiser, sunscreen and foundation all at once! Our recommendation – Garnier Miracle Skin Perfector BB Cream or Lakme CC Cream.
Step 2 – Use a concealer of your choice to hide blemishes and brighten under-eye dark circles.
Step 3 – Add a touch of color, using a cream blush to your cheeks. A cream blush is better as it blends well and doesn’t give a dry, cakey look.
Step 4 – Apply the least possible amount of face powder. If you have dry skin naturally, skip powder altogether. The trick to using powder is use as little as possible and apply only to the oily parts of your skin- usually the t-zone and chin area.
Step 5 – Finally, to finish off your dewy complexion, use a liquid highlighter (we recommend Up-Lighting Liquid Illuminator from Clinique) to your face a radiant look. To apply, use a small brush and dab the color directly on the top of the cheekbones and come along the temples slightly.
