I want to give my makeup a dewy finish, but my skin is incredibly dry, how do I do it?
When you’ve got dry skin the first thing you usually want to do is restore radiance and give it that beautiful, glossy finish. Dewy skin looks great, but many brands get it wrong with their dewy skin formulas making skin look more like a shiny disco ball than gorgeous and healthy. I’m known for having super glowy skin in my photos and tutorials!
If you are using a lot of powders variations of products such as highlighter, bronzer, contour and blush this could be an issue. If you want your skin to look dewy and glowy you want to be skipping the powder and opting for cream and liquid formulas wherever you can. I swear by the Kevyn Aucoin Creamy Glow Formula, it blends beautifully over foundation and is available in a wide range of blushes, contour and highlight shades.

We’ve all had those days… A friend’s birthday, a special occasion, a party, work, an important meeting. Sometimes these are things that you simply cannot afford to miss, despite the fact you’ve just come done with a tummy ache, a cold or a headache or simply aren’t in the mood to go out but the world still moves around and sometimes you just have to pull yourself together, get dressed, put on some makeup and conquer the day. Whilst the last thing you probably feel like doing when you’re sick is putting on makeup, it can make a lot of difference to how your feeling and your state of mind.
First and foremost your number one concern should be your skin. When you’re sick it’s easy to forgo your skincare routine and either just wash it or do nothing at all. Instead, try and stick to your regular routine and consider adding an oil or hydrating serum under your moisturiser. When your immune system is down it can take a nasty toll on your skin - and don’t you dare even think about forgetting lip balm!

“Like painters, who need a perfectly smooth, even-colored and flawless canvas, makeup artists require even-toned and smooth skin for an optimal and professional makeup result.” says Dany Sanz, founder of MAKE UP FOR EVER. Developed with a unique formula to hydrate, smooth, and help regenerate the skin, the Step 1 Skin Equalizer line works to target every texture and color concern as it preps your skin for makeup application. The collection of 10 primers can be mixed and matched or worn alone. Below, The Sephora Glossy illustrates how to decide which are right for you. BECKY PEDERSON
These primers are designed to address skin concerns, such as oil and shine, large pores, fine lines, dry skin, and redness.
1. Mattifying Primer: reduces shine by targeting oily skin
2. Smoothing Primer: addresses large pores and fine lines by evening the skin’s surface
3. Hydrating Primer: restores skin’s balance for those who have normal skin with occasional dryness
4. Nourishing Primer: moisturizes to comfort constant dry skin
5. Redness Correcting Primer: neutralizes redness often associated with rosacea
While these primers can be used alone, you can also combine them to customize your look. If you decide to double up, use this guide for the best results.
1. Apply Redness Correcting Primer or any Radiance Range primer before applying Mattifying Primer or Smoothing Primer.
2. Apply Hydrating Primer or Nourishing Primer before applying Redness Correcting Primer or any Radiance Range primer.
Face primers are fantastic, and even though I don’t wear one every time I do my makeup , if I need my makeup to look last and look flawless all day I’ll use one. Don’t be fooled into thinking they are just another product to buy so brands can get more money, they are much more than that.
In short, primers are amazing products that you apply after you’ve cleansed and moisturised your skin, but before you apply any coverage products like foundation or concealer. Majority of primers are designed to help make your makeup last a lot longer and smooth over the surface
of the skin so your makeup applies evenly.
If the only thing that’s endless about your summer are your days at the office under fluorescent lights, you and bronzer are probably already best friends. But even without a grueling schedule or aversion to the sun, this glow-getter can illuminate your world in unexpected ways. Below are seven secrets that’ll make you a believer faster than you can say, “Look, Ma, no tan lines.” MELISSA LANE
LOSE FIVE POUNDS IN TEN SECONDS TIP: Forget the juice cleanse. Contour your face with bronzer along the hollows of your cheekbones, temples, and jawline, and you’ll look like you doubled your gym routine without lifting a finger. TRY: Too Faced Chocolate Soleil.
SKIP THE FOUNDATION TIP: Sometimes you’re just not feeling full-face coverage. In these cases, mix a small amount of cream bronzer into your moisturizer for a smooth complexion—and a subtle glow. TRY: BECCA Bronzing Skin Perfector.
ENHANCE YOUR CLEAVAGE TIP: Your brassiere doesn’t have to do all the work. Dust bronzer along your cleavage, blending upwards towards your décolleté to slyly deepen the divide. TRY: Diorskin Nude Tan Nude Glow Sun Powder.
NUDIFY YOUR LIPS TIP: You’ll want to kiss and tell this beauty tip. Customize a nude shade for your pucker by blending a small amount of bronzer with a pink or berry gloss. TRY: NARS Multiples Regular or Matte.
TRANSITION BETWEEN SEASONS TIP: Too soon for your summer complexion product, but getting late in the game for your winter shade? Try mixing it with a touch of bronzer. This will allow you to calibrate things until you are ready to make the jump to your my-office-is-a-beach-towel shade. TRY: Guerlain Terracotta Bronzing Powder.

This combination gives the most perfect dewy skin effect out of all the combinations of primers and foundations I’ve ever tried. It’s the NARS Pro Prime Light Optimizing Primer in Radiance Enhancing (there are two different ones in this line) and the Chanel Vitalumière foundation.
