Foundation hacks for dewy, glowing skin


Glowy, dewy skin is our number one goal at the moment, and with the right makeup, it’s easier to achieve than you may think. It all begins with flawless foundation application, which means using the right tools and using the right products to get your glow on. These five foundation hacks will deliver a major glow up every single time.

Prep Your Skin

Ask any makeup artist and they’ll tell you that a glowing complexion starts with skincare. While cleansing, toning, and moisturizing are all key, exfoliation is the holy grail as it helps nix dead and dry skin cells to smooth skin texture and brighten the skin while keeping pores clear of debris so that over time the pores appear ‘tighter.’

DIY Your Own Dewy Foundation

If your current foundation doesn’t deliver that dewy glow you’re looking for, add a drop of a hydrating skincare formula. The extra surge of moisture will give a dewy finish while also keeping your skin hydrated. Or, for a more luminous, healthy skin-finish, mix your foundation with one to two drops of a facial oil and apply with your fingers, finishing with a damp makeup sponge.

Add a Highlighter

If the idea of diluting the coverage of your foundation or adding unnecessary moisture sounds like a recipe for disaster, this hack is here to save the day. Instead of mixing a skincare formula into your foundation, mix two drops of a liquid highlighter with your foundation and apply it to the skin with your fingers or a damp beauty blender. It’ll instantly give your skin a luminous finish, without looking greasy.

Apply Foundation to Damp Skin

To achieve a radiant complexion, you need to apply foundation to freshly moisturized skin that’s still damp with hydration. It helps with the blending process and ensures the foundation doesn’t ‘sit on top of the skin.

Always Use A Damp Beauty Blender

Whether you prefer full or light coverage, a damp beauty blender is integral for an airbrushed finish. For a fresh, dewy skin finish, just soak your sponge in water and squeeze out any excess, then lightly squeeze in a towel. For full coverage, apply your foundation first with a brush or your fingers and then finish by lightly bouncing the damp blender across your skin. For lighter coverage, use your damp sponge to apply, blend and blur your foundation.
