We don't need to tell you that dewy, glowing skin is in style. But if you're looking for a dewy complexion without looking greasy or shiny, it can be hard to get the right look on your face. Even if you've got naturally oily or dry skin, there are ways to create a healthy glow without letting shine get in the way of your makeup routine. Here are some tips that will help you achieve the perfect level of luminosity.
Use A Hydrating Primer To Boost Moisture Levels
If you've got dry skin, a hydrating primer can help boost moisture levels. Primers are like makeup's best friend because they provide a smooth base for your foundation and keep it in place all day long. If you're struggling with dullness or flaking around the eyes, try applying a hyaluronic acid-based primer before applying your foundation, it'll make all the difference!
You can also use primers as part of your skincare routine, apply one after cleansing, but before moisturizing to lock in hydration throughout the day (or night).

Use A Hydrating Foundation Or Tinted Moisturizer
If you're looking for a dewy finish that lasts all day, start with a hydrating foundation or tinted moisturizer.
- Make sure the foundation or tinted moisturizer is oil-free. If it contains oil, your skin will look greasy rather than glowing.
- Choose an SPF-infused product if you'll be spending time outdoors in direct sunlight (which can lead to sun damage).

Make Sure Your SPF Is Broad-Spectrum And Water Resistant
- If you're using a foundation with SPF, apply it first. This will help make sure that all of the sunscreen gets into your skin and stays there.
- Choose a full-coverage foundation that's both long-lasting and has an SPF of at least 30 (and ideally higher). You can also use a tinted moisturizer with SPF for lighter coverage if you want to go for something more natural-looking that still offers sun protection.
- If possible, choose an oil-free formula so it won't clog pores or cause breakouts on sensitive skin types like acne or rosacea sufferers have to deal with every day, something we know all too well ourselves!
Skip The Bronzer And Use Highlighter Instead
If you're after a natural-looking glow, skip the bronzer and use highlighter instead. Highlighters can be applied to the cheekbones and inner corners of your eyes to make them look brighter. If you have freckles or other spots on your face that need a little extra lightening up, apply highlighter there as well!
Highlighter comes in different shades so it's possible for everyone to find one that works for them from pale pink hues all the way up to golds and coppers. If you're unsure about which shade would look best on your skin tone (or if there are certain areas where more highlighting is needed), consider getting an illuminating palette with multiple shades within it so that they can be mixed together based on need rather than buying separate products with only one color option each time."
Wrap up in moisture-locking sheet masks after cleansing and exfoliating at night.
Sheet masks are a great way to moisturize your skin, and they make the perfect weekly or monthly treatment! They're also easy to find at drugstores and even supermarkets, so you don't have to spend a fortune on fancy ones from Sephora or Ulta (though those can be fun too). Sheet masks come in all shapes, sizes, textures and scents, there really is something for everyone!

Avoid Retinol Products If You Have Sensitive Skin
If you have sensitive skin, avoid retinol products. Retinol is a form of vitamin A that helps with skin cell turnover and can be very drying and irritating to sensitive skin. If you want to try a product that contains retinol but don't want to risk irritating your skin, look for gentle alternatives like hyaluronic acid (a natural moisturizer) or use it only at night when you're not exposed to sunlight, which can cause irritation in itself.
Try Using A Skin-Brightening Serum Before Applying Makeup In The Morning
If you want to get skin-brightening ingredients into your routine, serums are an excellent option. They can be used alone or under makeup, and they're easy to apply with a cotton pad or directly on the skin. Serums can also be used as a spot treatment for dark spots and other problematic areas.
With these tips, you can get glowing, dewy skin without looking greasy or shiny!
To get that dewy, glowing skin, you need to start with the right products. Here's what you should use:
- A hydrating primer. This will make your foundation look even and smooth.
- A hydrating foundation or tinted moisturizer in your shade. It should have SPF 15 or higher, which protects against UVA rays (which cause wrinkles) and UVB rays (which cause sunburns and skin cancer). If you want something a little more natural-looking but still long-lasting.
- Water resistant sunscreen with broad spectrum protection (SPF 30+), which is super lightweight so it won't feel sticky on top of your makeup!
