It’s no secret at this point that dewy, highlighted skin is one of the most sought-after makeup looks. And while finding YouTube tutorials is certainly a breeze, picking out the right products isn’t always as easy. Sometimes the word “glowing” or “luminous” on the packaging actually turns out to mean “loaded with shimmer.” And while we appreciate the beaming look of a disco ball, sometimes we’re trying to look dewy instead. For those times, we reach for one of the following six dewy-skin-creating products.
A radiant, reflective makeup base starts with a great primer, and High Glass by NYX hits the nail on the head. This formula comes in three illuminating shades: Moonbeam, Rose Quartz and Sandy Glow for a champagne, rose gold or bronze finish respectively that will shine through your face makeup in all the right ways.
Another crowd favorite is the Armani Luminous Silk Primer, which gives your skin a dewy, radiant touch. It helps to blur uneven skin tone and looks stunning worn alone or underneath your favorite foundation.
High Glass Finishing Powder works a little differently than a typical highlighter — it’s finely milled, absorbs oil and gives you a radiant glow. It contains tiny micro-pearls that give you that dewy, glassy finish without excess shimmer.
This tinted moisturizer-at-heart is one of our favorites for achieving a dewy finish without coming off looking greasy. The texture of this stuff is super airy and lightweight and will make you feel like you’re literally wearing nothing, which is the best part.
Magic Star will give you the golden glow of your dewy-skin dreams. This super-soft powder glides onto the skin with ease and instantly catches light throughout its wear.
A radiant, glassy finishing spray is the final step to a dewy makeup routine, and this formula by NYX will become your new go-to. It has hints of golden champagne flecks that will give you just the right amount of shimmer.
