Dewy makeup is the latest fashion for the face!
This look was inspired by the Alexander Wang, Stella McCartney, Balmain, Isabel Marant, Chloé and Gucci Spring/Summer 2010 runway shows. The key trends were dewy skin; soft, neutral eyes; and sheer lips.
To recreate this catwalk-inspired look, watch the video tutorial and follow the step-by-step instructions below:
1). Start by cleansing (a) and moisturizing (b) your skin.
2). For a flawless complexion, apply a liquid foundation (c) to your face and eye area with a brush (d), then blend it into the skin with your fingertips.
Makeup artist tip! Foundation will help to even out your skin tone; however, it will only mask minor imperfections. Use a concealer in areas where you need more coverage.
Optional extra! For luminous-looking skin, mix a radiance booster (e) with your foundation before you apply it.
3). To even out the skin tone in your eye area, take some concealer (f) on a concealer brush (g) and apply it beneath your eye and onto the eyelid. Then, for a well-blended finish, pat it into the skin with your fingertip. Using the same technique, conceal the corners of your nose and any spots or blemishes.
4). To brighten your face and accentuate your features, use a highlighter (h). Apply it to the tops of the cheekbones, down the length of the nose, across the Cupid’s bow (middle of the top lip) and onto the center of the forehead, and work it into the skin with a fluffy blending brush (i).
5). To create a flattering eyeshadow base, wash a light-colored, peachy-brown, shimmery shadow (j) over your eyelid and up onto the lower brow bone with a soft, fluffy blending brush (k). Then, to make the eye sparkle, sweep it along the bottom lash line and into the inner corner with a small angled brush (l).
6). To add more depth, take a mid-toned matte copper eyeshadow (m) on a soft, fluffy blending brush (k) and blend it over your eyelid. Begin at the top lash line, and using back and forth strokes, blend it up into the crease.
Makeup artist tip! Soft peachy and coppery hues work for everyone. They look natural on brunettes with brown eyes and dark skin, gorgeous on green-eyed, sandy-haired girls with freckles, and they make the irises of fair-skinned, blue-eyed blondes … pop!
7). To open up the eye, curl your upper lashes (n) and apply a coat of mascara (o). Then, work the brush through the lower lashes.
Hot tip! Because Lancôme Ôscillation mascara (o) separates the lashes and gives a natural-looking finish, it is perfect for the first coat.
8). For extra length and volume, add some individual false lashes to your upper lash line. For a natural effect, use longer-length lashes (p) at the outer corner of the eye, and shorter lengths (q) from the center inwards.
Makeup artist tip! So I can control the intensity of the look, I prefer to work from the outer corner in.
a). To begin, squeeze a small amount of adhesive (r) onto a spatula and wait a few minutes for it to become tacky.
b). Then, using a pair of tweezers (s), pick up a fake lash and dip the root-end into the thickened adhesive (r).
c). Next, place it into your lash line so it adheres close to the base of your natural lashes. If necessary, manoeuvre it into position with the tweezers.
d). Keep adding more lashes until you achieve the desired level of drama!
9). So your natural lashes merge seamlessly with the new additions, apply another layer of mascara (t). For high impact, choose one that darkens and thickens the lashes.
10). To frame your eyes, brush your brows upwards (u), then take some powder (v) on a small angled brush (l), and using a series of short strokes, softly fill in the brow contour.
11). For a subtle hint of kissable color, apply a sheer lipstick (w) with a lip brush (x).
FACE & CHEEKS.
12). For a gorgeous faux holiday glow, take some bronzing powder (y) on a large, fluffy powder brush (z), and using back and forth strokes and circular motions, blend it over your cheeks, temples, forehead and chin, and down the center of your nose.
Makeup artist tip! Applying bronzer to the high points of your face gives the skin that natural “just caught the sun” look. To avoid oompa loompa syndrome, tap any excess bronzer off the brush before you apply it. Build up color gradually; it’s far easier to add more than to remove excess.
By now you should be bronzed and beautiful! Step out and enjoy the compliments.
