Continue to read more on some of my holy grail summertime beauty products.
If you want the “lit from within” radiant look from your foundation or BB [beauty balm] cream, use a liquid illuminator right under your makeup. After applying your moisturizer and primer, place this illuminizer on your high cheek bones, forehead, bridge of your nose and chin with a light sweeping motion with your fingers. The application should be light so it does not impact the way your face makeup smooths on.
For my divas who are obsessed with locking-in their makeup with setting sprays, NYX has a dewy finish spray that will give you an instantly glow to your foundation. Be very light with the application of this spray, since you do not want to alter the placement of your blush or eye shadow. Get your instant glow on the go!
To heighten up the dew factor to your makeup, Laura Mercier has a superb illuminating tinted moisturizer! Not only can you look radiant and golden, this makeup also has an SPF of 20 in them! Glow girl glow, and be sunscreen safe while doing it!
If you want to be radiant in certain areas of your face without being too fussy over your makeup, try these E.L.F. Baked Highlighters! Sweep these gorgeous deposits of color on to the high points of your face with your favorite fan brush. Effortless and simply gorgeous, will be the look these baked highlighters provide!
If you are looking for an all-in-one product that will not only brighten your face, but also prime at the same time, this Smashbox primer will do just that. This summer you will not have to obsess about getting a golden tan when you have this product in hand! You can be deliciously radiant and flawless with only one product!
Ok, so every product on this list has been makeup and not an actual tool to help get a dewy look. ThE coveted Beauty Blender, or any egg-shaped makeup sponge, when dampened can instantly turned any one of your foundations into a dewy one. All you have to do is dampen your sponge (please ring out the excess water, we want dewy not wet) and dip your sponge into your favorite foundation and apply it in a stipple or tap motion on to the face. The water droplets from your sponge will help your foundation look fresh and dewy!
Now that I have shared nearly all of my favorite tips and tricks for my dewy, golden skin, now it is your turn to try these out and see which product or technique you like best!
