Look Dewy, Not Shiny

A dewy, fresh complexion is always in, but it can be tough to figure out how to avoid the matte look and sidestep looking greasy. You want to be illuminated and glowing rather than shiny, and luckily there are plenty of products out there that can help you achieve just that.

The first step to a dewy face is to exfoliate. Gently rubbing off dead skin cells on your face reveals a new, fresh layer underneath, and it gets rid of the dullness too. Find a gentle daily exfoliating face scrub and use it in the shower before you put on your makeup. Next, moisturize. this will hydrate your skin and keep it looking healthy. Find a light version that’s oil-free.

A finishing powder like Too Faced – Absolutely Invisible Candlelight Softly Illuminating Translucent Pressed Powder will set your makeup and give your skin a soft glow. For a little extra oomph, rub a little bronzer like Sothys – Summer Veil Healthy Glow Effect onto the tops of your cheekbones and onto your brow bones. You’ll get a subtle lightening effect that’s perfect for radiant-looking skin.
