How to Perfect the Dewy Makeup Look

Healthy glowing skin is the big trend making a huge come back. For a while now full coverage was a given, heavy sculpted makeup was an absolute must. For those of you who know my work, Ive always loved skin, in truth I think it’s probably my forte. I can camouflage anything and still have you looking like a natural babe! Yes, of course I do whatever my client prefers, if she wants a Kim K look I will oblige.

With the dawn of Charlotte Tilbury’s makeup line there’s been a shift towards skin. The majority of my clients mention highlight. The buzz words are now dewy, luminosity, hydrated, glowing, bronzed. And yes, I’m in my element!

So if you don’t have the benefit of a makeup artist, how do you get this glow on? Well, my dears the market is now flooded with amazing products to perfect the dewy makeup look.

Best applied before your foundation to the higher points of the face i.e the cheek bones and centre of the nose. For a real lit from within look, mix it in with your foundation. Glowing Goddess look!!

Again apply before foundation, helps to liven up the complexion and gives a beautiful soft hydrated look to the skin.
