So you want to be a dewy sun-kissed goddess with luminous skin? Well then welcome to the ever-growing club. Glowing skin always ranks high on our beauty wishlist and over the past few years, dewy skin has been a significant trend in the beauty community. Radiant skin is not only one of the most withstanding skincare and makeup looks but is also one of the most versatile, flattering and easy to replicate. Healthy, sunkissed skin is here to stay, and frankly, we’re all about it. But while we all might be missing our vacation time basking on the beach in IRL, it’s definitely safer and easier to mimic the bronze dew with a handful of fantastic glow-getter makeup products. Ready to faux your glow? Ahead I’ve listed my picks for ultimate glow-boosters to get you started.
If you want a radiant base from the get-go this strobe cream from MAC is the ultimate quick fix. It has a moisturiser like consistency that you need to use on your skin before foundation. Instantly boosting the look of dull or tired skin, it actually makes you “lit from within”, adding the softest glow while it hydrates the skin.
For a fresh-faced base with decent coverage, the L’Oreal Fresh Wear Foundation is my constant go-to no matter the season. It’s a lightweight formula that’s breathable where a little bit goes a long way. This can be applied with a sponge, a brush, or even your fingers for seamless application. But once applied, it evens out your skin and makes it look healthy, fresh and glowy in all the right spots. It’s great for a range of skin types but especially so if you have dry and dehydrated skin.
You can’t do a dewy look without a great cream blush and the Nudestix Nudies Bloom give the most stunning results. The creamy formula melts into the skin seamlessly to give your complexion a healthy glow and youthfulness all over. Just use your fingers to blend the product or use the handy inbuilt brush it comes with on the other end of the stick.
If a cream bronzer isn’t quite your thing or you just prefer powders but still want that glow this genius bronzer is the next best thing. A perfect blend of being matte yet it gives a subtle glow with its light-reflecting particles that leave the skin looking radiant and healthy. You’ll love the lightweight natural finished look. Plus you’ve got to admire its luxurious-looking tortoiseshell packaging that has us dreaming of our next vacation.
By now everyone knows the cult-favourite highlighters from Becca. In fact, if you’re a highlighter fiend you probably already have this on your vanity. If not it’s time to stock up! Even though it’s a powder formula it glides on like silk for a gorgeous sparkling finish. Never drying or cakey it sits on the skin beautifully and comes in a variety of stunning shades to fit your personal taste. You really can’t go wrong with any of the powders in this range.
If you’ve watched enough makeup tutorials you know investing in a good setting spray is crucial. As the name might suggest this water-based formula is all you need for a soft radiance that lasts all day. This versatile spray sets your makeup and works as a refreshing, dewy top-up during the day.
