The Dewy Makeup Menu

The Dewy Makeup Menu
Throughout the year my skin tends to lack in radiance so hydrating, glowy products tend to be on the menu all year round. In the Spring and Summer months, dewy makeup is my go-to look and today I am sharing with you my staple products that I currently have in my makeup bag. 

I always start by priming my face with the Too Faced Hangover Primer; a coconut water-infused primer that helps to revive lacklustre skin and prolong makeup wear. For foundation I have been reaching for the L'Oreal Nude Magique Cushion Foundation a lot recently as it instantly creates a luminous, flawless base. If I need to add more radiance to the skin then I like to apply a layer of the Aesop Fabulous Face Oil* underneath my foundation and drop a little oil onto my Beauty Blender* before blending. 

Although I choose to skip on the bronzer if I want an extremely dewy makeup look, adding a bit of colour can really help to perk up my skin. The Benefit Dew The Hoola*a liquid bronzer that can be blended out sheerly to create a natural wash of matte colour- is the bronzer I reach for the most as it compliments my complexion perfectly. As for highlighter I often like to double up, opting for a cream offering first then a powder. The Topshop Glow Highlighter in Polish adds an instant, dewy glow to the high points of my face, whilst The Balm's Mary Lou Manizer adds an intense hit of glow to the cheeks.  

I prefer to keep my blusher simple, swapping my usual powder for a cream option to optimise a natural makeup look. The Sleek Cream to Powder Blush in Carnation* is a vivid pink-hued blusher which can create a soft, satin finish when applied lightly. I follow it with an eyeliner flick, lashings of mascara and then a brush through my eyebrows. 

When it comes to choosing a complimentary lip colour, I tend to opt for either a slick of lip balm or a coral offering. The Nars Lodhi Lip Pencil gives off a strong wash of colour with a satin finish which feels comfortable to wear on the lips. If I'm after something a little more glossy and subtle, then the Fresh Sugar Lip Treatments are my port of call. 

What makeup do you use to achieve glowy, dewy skin?
