How to Master Dewy-Looking Makeup

dewy makeup tutorial

There’s something universally appealing about dewy, glowing skin — it makes you look fresh, full of joy, and it’s just perfect for summer. Interested in giving it a try? We’ll show you the way.



Step 1
Start with a little concealer to cover any blemishes and dark circles and pat a cream shadow like this one called Corfu by Nars all across the lid.


Step 2
Take a creamy dark pencil in a bronzy color and smudge it along the lash line. I used Smashbox Waterproof Shadow Liner in Luminous Fig.

Step 3
Apply a thick coat of mascara on top and bottom lashes.

Step 4
Now you want to add the glow factor. Apply the Nars Multiple in Malibu on the apples of the cheeks for a pretty pink sheen.


Step 5
Bring out the cheekbones by adding a highlighter on top as well as under the eyebrows. I used Stila All Over Shimmer in Bronze Shimmer.

Step 6
Finish the look by popping on a pinky-nude lipgloss like Armani’s Lip Shimmer 16.

Voila!!! Pretty, dewy, and luminous!
