With spring fast approaching, I have no doubt that dewy skin will be on every beauty enthusiasts mind. I have had issues with dewy skin before where I felt like it was just shiny, so I opted for matte foundations and never bothered to give my skin any youthfulness by applying products which created a healthy glow. It's taken a while, and several Pixiwoo tutorials to get my dewy look, but it's finally finished and I'm loving it for simple, natural days!

On clean skin, start by applying a good moisturiser. I'm using Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturising Lotion at the moment, I would't say it's the best moisturiser I have ever used because it takes a little while to soak into the skin. It's a winner for the evening when I moisturise before bed though, so I do give it it's due. Then, apply a brightening eye cream - I use Origins GinZing which has lasted me for absolute ages! Definitely an investment piece for brightening those under eye circles. Once your skin is nicely moisturised, it's ready to be primed. One that I've been loving recently is the Premae Smoothie Serum which contains natural ingredients and is brilliant at calming down acne prone skin so as far as primers go - this one is a winner. Once your skin is primed and ready, start adding a little bit of a glow with a product like Benefit Girl Meets Pearl primer which I wouldn't use all over the face, some people do, but I prefer to just buff it into my cheekbones and a T shape from my forehead, over the nose and a little bit on the chin - this gives your face a youthful glow. I then use a matte foundation like the Clarins Ever Matte foundation to apply over the face to ensure my face won't be looking overly shiny, one layer is more than enough with this type of foundation. You can also add a little extra glow by buffing Girl Meets Pearl over the foundation if you feel it's appropriate. Remember to get rid of those under eye bags - no youthful look is complete without bright eyes! I love Seventeen's Phwoarr Paint concealer, it is seriously heavy duty and saves my face every day! Strongly recommend this as one of your makeup bag essentials as it's only £5.49! Finish off with soft lips by applying a generous amount of your favourite lip balm, mine is most definitely the Elizabeth Arden 8 Hour Cream here - which works amazing on not only lips but also hands and any other dry areas on your skin!

Now your skin should be looking dewy and refreshed, you can carry on with some blusher and a coat of mascara, or whatever takes your fancy! I usually apply this routine on a Sunday for a family roast, or when I'm out for countryside walks as the air will give you the most beautiful rose tint on your cheeks!

  3. I love this post! I often shy away from trying to make my skin look more "dewey" because of how oily it is (boooo!) but I must admit I love using Girl Meets Pearl on my cheeks! :D

    And I'll say it again, must try that Clarins foundation!


    xox,

  4. Absolutely fantastic post! I have dry and dull skin, so having a dewy face is really important to me (even though I'm only 19 anyway). Thanks for the tips. I have my eye on that lovely Benefit Girl Meets Pearl primer...

  5. I really want to try the Seventeen's Phwoarr Paint concealer, just not sure if it'll be as good as the Collection lasting perfection.
    Great post :)

  6. I've always preferred a clean matte face- mostly because I'm not much of a makeup girl. But I often find myself going for the dewy look in the winter just so I don't look like a pale, white dry ghost!
