How to Get a Dewy Complexion Like Sarah Michelle Gellar

3 Steps For Getting a Dewy Complexion

She may best be known for slaying vampires, but Sarah Michelle Gellar is also known for her clear, luminous skin. And at the CW Network's 2011 upfront event today, where she feted her upcoming return to TV, Sarah Michelle looked as beautiful as ever wearing a dewy makeup look. Find out how you can give your skin a similarly lustrous glow when you read more.

  1. After moisturizing, apply an illuminating primer, like Benefit's That Gal ($28), to boost your skin's radiance. Using a primer of this sort will also make your makeup look smoother and brighter.
  2. Next, using a dampened sponge, apply a light, brilliant-finish foundation, such as Laura Mercier's Illuminating Tinted Moisturizer ($42). Optional: to give the skin a warm glow, apply a cream blush in a peachy shade.
  3. Use blotting paper to lightly dab away excess moisturizer, and then set your makeup with a finely milled powder only where needed. Optional: spritz on a makeup setting spray, such as Urban Decay's Dew Me ($29), to refresh the look throughout the day.

perhaps it's because i grew up in the south with 110% humidity, but to me the "dewy" complexion always looks sweaty. i wanna hand her a hanky so she can dab her face.
