How To: Create The Dewy Look

July 7, 2006

To achieve the dewy look as seen on the latest Vaseline ad featuring Hilary Duff, all you need is a few easy steps.

Hilary Duff Dewy makeup tutorial

1. Use a tinted moisturizer or if you have to use a foundation, avoid ones with words like “mattifying” or “oil control”. Instead, look for ones that say “glow”, “transparent” and “luminize”.

2. Mix a teeny weeny bit of liquid highlighter into your foundation. Try Revlon Skinlights Face Illuminator, M·A·C Strobe Cream or Giorgio Armani Fluid Sheer.

3. Skip powder entirely if you can and powder only your most oily areas.

4. Using a setting spray can also make your skin look dewy. My faves are M·A·C Fix+ and rosewater.

5. Highlight certain parts of your face (cheekbones, bridge of your nose, brow bone) with Vaseline or a cream-based product like M·A·C Cream Color Base.

    how do you apply liquid concealer with a concealer brush? do you just put some concealer on the brush and dot it on the problem area and kind of smooth it with the brush? steps on applying concealer flawlessly would be greatly appreciated 🙂
