How to do dewy skin makeup

15th December, 2014


I’m all about great skin when it comes to makeup. If your base isn’t right your makeup is never going to look great. I love a dewy finish as it’s fresh and natural, and it’s really easy to achieve. Here’s a step-by-step guide on getting the look yourself:


  1. To start, cleanse and moisturise your skin then apply a primer (I use Napoleon Perdis Auto Pilot Pre-Foundation Skin Primer).

Invest in a good foundation brush for better coverage

2. Next, apply your foundation. I like two kinds of foundation – Armani Luminous Silk or Chanel Vitalumiere (if you have oily skin I’d go for Armani). Applying foundation is all about using a great foundation brush. Take the time to blend to get an all over, even coverage. To get a dewy finish mix a luminiser (I use MAC Strobe Cream) with your foundation.


Contour your face using a bronzing powder

3. Contour with a bronzer (I use MAC bronzing powder) on your temples, cheekbones and neck.


I use YSL Touche Eclat to highlight key areas of my face

4. To highlight, add more luminiser (for this I use YSL Touche Eclat) on your cheekbones, brow bone, the bridge of your nose and the bow of your lip.


Use a cream blush to add a rosy glow

5. Use a cream blush (I use MAC Cremeblend blush) on your cheeks to finish off the look and to avoid shine, apply a pressed powder (I use MAC sheer pressed powder) to your t-zone.

My top skin tips:

  • Your foundation may change throughout the year so in winter months it’s always going to be lighter but in summer if you’re a bit more tanned you can go for a more darker shade. It’s got to be spot on!
  • Great makeup application is all about having the right tools. Make sure to get the best quality brushes you can.
