The "Dewy Glow" Look



Natural, dewy, no-makeup makeup. Seen all over the Autumn/Winter 14 catwalks, it's the beauty trend that keeps on trending, which is great for me because it happens to be my favourite look. It's about creating a healthy dewy glow and keeping everything else paired back but polished.... Let the skin do the talking. Here's how I created this look...


It's all about the base. As well as following a good skincare regime (a little exfoliating/buffing to rid dullness) it's important to prep with a radiance enhancing Primer. There's nothing better for this than Laura Mercier PrimerRadiance* £29 Urban Retreat Beautique. It has the most exquisite pearl tint that creates a soft focus effect and an all over dewy glow. Skip the foundation if you want your skin's natural radiance to shine through. I used a little OlayRegnerist CC Cream where I needed coverage/correction - mainly the nose/chin areas. Apply with fingers for a more natural finish. A little under eye concealer in the form of MAC Prep & Prime Highlighter Light Boost - the yellow toned highlighter combats blue bags. Then for the star of the show- the ultimate skin highlighter Laura Mercier Matte Radiance Baked Powder Highlight* £24 Urban Retreat Beautique . It adds the most natural radiance I've ever seen. For this look you don't want heavy, shimmery or even frosty. The baked powder imparts a beautiful hint of luminosity all over the face and can be built up to create a customisable glow - I'm wearing it on my cheek bones, brow bones, forehead and bridge of the nose....






The rest of the make up needs to be polished, but natural. Neat brows - because we NEVER NEGLECT THE BROWS, styled with Anastasia DipBrow Pomade in Medium Brow £15 Cult Beauty A quick sweep of Mascara, I used Bourjois 1 Seconde Volume Mascara and a slick of Revlon Colourburst Lipgloss Bellini to finish the look.


And there we have it - Dewy, natural, radiant and on-trend!
