You Glow Girl

Written by Ashley Cornforth

Spring is in full bloom and it's time to break out your favorite products for that natural dewy look that we all love.

The steps are simple to complete this look.

Prep: Before you start, you need to prepare your skin. First exfoliate and then cleanse using your personal skincare products to get a fresh face.

First: Moisturizer

Moisturizer is one of the most important items you will need. A moisturizer with an illuminating finish acts as the base for your dewy look. Use a generous amount on your face and neck. Glowstarter Mega Illuminating moisturizer is a go to.

Second: Primer

In order to preserve the dewy look, use a small amount of primer. Primer typically has a matte finish, so use sparingly in areas where you have excess oil. For example, put a minimal amount on your t zone to smooth out your pores. Try Touch In Soul, No Poreblem Primer for your pore fix.

Third: Concealer

Concealer is a must-have for a dewy look. Your concealer should be one shade lighter than your skin tone. Add a couple dots under your eyes and around your t zone for the perfect amount of coverage. For the perfect match try Benefit Cosmetics, Boi-ing Brightening Concealer.

Fourth: Color

You want a pop of color, whether it be on your cheeks, eyes or lips! Try a multi-use product such as NARS Sheer Pop stick. Multi-use products like this are typically cream-based, perfect for cheeks, eyes, or lips.

Fifth: Highlighter

This is the most important product you need. Try a high-beam shimmer highlighter one shade lighter than your skin tone. Wearing a highlight that is a darker shade than your skin tone will give you more of a bronze look than a light, natural, dewy look.  Highlight the major points of your face, cheeks, nose, cupids bow and don’t forget on the corner of your brows! Make yourself shine with Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed Highlighter by BECCA.

Sixth: Setting Spray

For the final touch, you need to set your face. Use a setting spray to make your face look hydrated and glowy to give the desired dewy look. Setting spray keeps your makeup in place and your face hydrated.

Set that look with Watermelon Glow Ultra-Fine Mist by Glow Recipe.

This look is the perfect transition from those dry winter days in Missouri to a sunny spring day. Get ready to glow girl!
