Dewy Makeup

Dew It Up For Spring

Last night at the A Night of a Thousand Lights Benefit for St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital, the women arrived wearing gorgeous Marchesa gowns and subtle springtime makeup — just look at that gorgeous glow on Joy Bryant.

She shows us that this barefaced trend is beautiful for both daytime and evening looks. I really love how her smile shows through her eyes. It seems like all she has on is a great moisturizer and maybe a little lip balm — unfortunately, we know that's not the case. I'm guessing that a brightening pen, some concealer, and a little highlighter had a hand as well.

If you're interested in mimicking Joy's dewy face at home, here are a few tips:

  • Choose a base with a low powder content and a high water content. This will ensure that your face looks moist. Also, skip any type of mattifying primer.
  • Assess your skin. This look is best for those with tight pores. If your pores are large and/or clogged, try using a pore-tightening primer and a toner. This will ensure that dew-enhancing products don't accentuate them.
  • Look for a highlighter that contains light-reflecting particles. You can use this in combination with Vaseline, a brightener, or a creamy highlighter like Nars the Multiple over your cheeks, on the sides of your forehead, and to the tip of your nose.
  • Gloss is boss. Coat lips with a gloss or shiny lip balm as a finishing touch.

What I do to get my dewy look is apply either a shimming primer (Laura Mercier) and then moisturizer, or a highlighting potion (Benefit Moon Beam) on the apples of my cheeks, side of nose and then moisturizer.
