Do the dew part deux.
Sweaty? No. I like to say I’m glistening courtesy of diligent skincare and makeup. Excuse me while I wax poetic about the following.
Probably the most important part if you’re really trying to make that skin glow.
COMPLEX BEAUTY THE GODMOTHER.
I love face masking, and always turn to The Godmother –a very fitting name– when my skin needs all around help. Tingly? Yes. But it doesn’t burn, and it works amazingly well to give you glowy, buttery smooth skin.
GLOW RECIPE WATERMELON SLEEPING MASK.
Jelly textures are another firm favorite of mine. This one is slippy, making it slightly difficult to get out of the tub with a spatula, but it’s worth spending the extra time coercing it out because come morning your skin will have a hydrated glow thanks to the AHAs.
URSA MAJOR VITAMIN C SERUM.*
I’d been in a committed relationship with this vitamin c serum for a few months so it’s now an empty, but it made a huge difference to my skin. Plus, it has aspen bark, a natural form of salicylic acid that is gently exfoliating and great for blemish prone skin. Not only does my skin look glowy in the morning, but also brighter, and feels velvety smooth. Vitamin C is one ingredient my skin loves immensely so I love it back and use often.
BARE MINERALS COMPLEXION RESCUE.
If heavy foundation isn’t your thing, and you want something that has light- light medium coverage then this should be in your stash. Bonus: it has SPF 30 so if you accidentally forget to apply SPF beforehand– oops, me sometimes– you and your skin are still protected. The finish of this is dewy (that’s why we’re here!) and makes your skin look succulent and fresh while still looking like skin.
GLOSSIER STRETCH CONCEALER.
The packaging says concealer, but highkey, this works really well as an all over dewy foundation too. A two-in-one-er that again doesn’t guise your skin, but adds a touch of coverage then tops it off with some dew for a sheeny skin-like finish. (Thank you to anyone who shops with me!)
MILK MAKEUP FACE GLOSS.
I mean– it’s face gloss. Of course it had to make the list. You only need a skosh to make your skin look very dewy and glassy and works well both on bare skin that wants a dew or on top of makeup. Just pat it on where you normally would put highlighter and it’ll get you glossy. I also like to put it on the lids– with and without eyeshadow.
