Over the past few years, dewy glass skin has become a significant trend in the beauty community. Every new makeup product that launches promises to make your skin look radiant and glowing; and almost every celebrity makeup look that’s posted on Instagram is highlighter-focused. However, if not done correctly, dewy makeup can tend to look textured and cakey. Using the right kind of products is super important to nail this makeup look. That’s why cream-based makeup products are the ideal choice when it comes to attempting the dewy makeup. Here’s why you should give cream-based makeup products a try:

  • They glide onto your skin smoothly, and they blend in effortlessly.
  • These makeup products leave your skin looking smooth, and they have a natural finish.
  • Cream-based makeup products have a rich formula, and that’s why they are pigmented and add a glow to your skin.

So without any further ado, here are a few of my favourite go-to cream-based makeup products that you should try out:

1. Bobbi Brown Foundation Stick

I was always a foundation stick sceptic, but after I tried this one particular, I couldn’t go back to any other foundation. It glides on smoothly, and you can blend it with your fingers. One thing I love about this cream-based product is that when I have it on, it looks very natural, just like second skin. This product is definitely worth giving a try!

2. Nudestix Nudies Matte Blush

Powder blush always made my skin look textured and matte. That’s why I was in awe when I first tried a cream-based blush. It looks dewy and adds the most natural blush to my cheeks.

3. M.A.C Pinklite Strobe Cream Hydratant Lumineux

I’m a big fan of all kinds of highlighters (my makeup bag currently holds a dozen of them); however, I have to say that my favourite is the liquid kind. This strobe cream makes you look “lit from within” AKA it gives you the most subtle glow.
