Just thought I’d share a couple of the things I’ve picked up recently to master the look of dewy skin, coveted by many, from beachy Cali girls to southern belles to Northeastern sailing princesses. The first two products have yet to arrive but obviously I cant contain my excitement and there’s a couple of tips that I thought would be good to know!
First up? The Nuxe Huile Prodigieuse dry oil. Thanks to my Birchbox subscription, I’m addicted to their beauty tutorials, especially the one on how to achieve dewy skin. In recent years I’ve tried desperately to master the look of dewy skin since I have such dry skin, and in all of the shameful amount of video tutorials I’ve watched along the way, none have been as impressive or as promising as the Birchbox one. Birchbox saves all of your ordering and billing information so late night beauty sprees are sort of inevitable, and dangerously simple. I took the dive and bought the French cult favorite in the 100 ml size with the hopes of dewy skin looming above me.
Also purchased earlier tonight with my Nuxe miracle oil was the Laura Geller Spackle Primer in bronze. Beside the fact that this is a bestseller in the Birchbox store, what really sold me on this product is the fact that it’s 2 oz for only $25 worth of primer, when all of the Smashbox Light Primer, Mac Prep+Prime, and my current (and least favorite!!!) Two Faced Primed and Poreless, are only 1 oz and more expensive! Primer is absolute staple in my foundation routine. But I’ve been waiting to run out of the Two Faced one since I got it, so I could try a new and hopefully, better, one. So with double the product for a little less than the same price, I didn’t even bother thinking twice. Add to cart.
In the peak of my raking through the web to find the secret to dewy skin I realized it was time I cave and buy the MAC Fix+ everyone seems to love so much. BUT WAIT! After searching for a review video on YouTube, I happened to find a couple videos that teach you how to make your own homemade Fix+. (!!!!!) After all, it’s mostly water, right? Right! (!!!!!!!!!!!!) 1/3 part glycerin and 2/3 water and a little extra good stuff, a shake (of the bottle…and the booty, whatever…) and you’ve got Beyoncé glow in no time. Okay, well, not Beyoncé but pretty close. This video tutorial really did the trick for winter skin and this is definitely a beauty trick I plan to keep in my beauty arsenal.
One last thing! Dewy skin is a result of perfectly strategized highlighting which can be tricky to figure out. I mean everyone always says, “place it where the light would hit,” but never really explains where that is. So I think this picture of Lauren Conrad (clearly first row at a fashion show) perfectly displays where the light hits your face first. This image has been my guide for applying highlight in tall the right places. Not to mention, the microdermabrasion tutorial the picture is actually meant for is yet another step to glowy, beaming, and youthful skin.
