There seems to be a consensus on one beauty trend to know: how to create a dewy complexion. The key is to find a way to make your face glow, shine and appear fresh. The following steps will help you to achieve this sought after look:

  1. Drink your water. Hydration is super important for glowing skin. You should aim to drink half your body weight in ounces each day.
  1. Exfoliate your skin. Whether you get a professional in-office peel or scrub at home, nothing helps plump up dull skin like sloughing off dead skin cells. Try to exfoliate at least twice a week to keep your complexion looking fresh!
  1. Create a base layer. Use a Vitamin C lotion to brighten and even out your skin tone, followed by a moisturizer. Make sure to let this dry a minute or two.
  1. Finish with shimmer. If you choose to prime before you use your foundation, go for one with shimmer. Apply a liquid foundation and a cream blush, staying with a natural flush color. I recommend using a neutral eye shadow in the brown family and maybe even use a shimmery color. Set with a highlighting or translucent powder by swiping and blending the powder over the bridge of your nose, cheekbones, brow bone and chin.

These steps will help bring out the natural beauty of your complexion. I can’t wait for you to try it!
