Using dewy makeup is one of our favorite ways to achieve healthy, hydrated-looking skin. Setting the makeup without losing this glow, however, can be a challenge. To find out how to set dewy makeup the right way, we consulted with Maybelline New York global makeup artist, Erin Parsons. Read on for her tips.

Focus on Your T-Zone

“I usually will just powder under the eyes and on the inside of the face — specifically your T-zone,” explains Parsons. Since your T-zone is a spot that tends to accumulate excess oil, this tip will ensure that you’re mattified and dewy in all the right places.

Don’t Go Overboard With Product

“Don’t overload the skin,” says Parsons. “When I’m working with foundations, I massage them into skin. When I contour, I don’t contour heavily, and I use cream products to keep the skin dewy so you only have to powder where the light hits you. Less product is better.”

Layer Your Makeup With Moisturizer

“Apply a bit of moisturizer back on top of your cheekbones after applying makeup, and then apply Maybelline New York FaceStudio Master Chrome Highlighter on top so it’s even more reflective,” says Parsons.
