Dewy skin has made its way back into the beauty game these days (despite the plethora of matte contouring techniques and Kylie Lip Kits flaunted by the Kardashians). That fresh, just-out-of-the-shower look that somehow appears lit from within.
At Marc Jacobs, the glossed over look was achieved by skipping foundation, and applying a layer of vaseline to the lids, cheekbones, and under eyes. "He likes the idea that they've been out all night sweating," said Francois Nars of Marc Jacobs' East Village muse. At Opening Ceremony, models flaunted a slightly sweaty look achieved with clear lip gloss, while models at Marchesa embraced the dewy look on the bridge of their noses and chins, proving that there are a number of creative ways to achieve this coveted look (actually sweating may also be one of them).
We've put together 3 reasons that will have you switching over to the dewy side in no time!
Dewy Skin Looks Healthy and Hydrated
Let's be honest: your matte skin is bumming everyone out. Just kidding. But doesn't dewy skin just look like happy, healthy skin? Since the trend makes it look as though you've spent a day in the park enjoying a refreshing yoga practice, we can't help but see a highlighted cheekbone and imagine all things that embody a healthy, natural glow.
Dewy Skin is Effortless
As summer approaches, there's no better time to throw caution (and oil-blotting papers) to the wind and embrace the thin veil of perspiration that resides on your face during the warmer months. While there are a number of oils and highlighters that provide that youthful, dewy glow, this catwalk-approved trend can be achieved as easily as going outside for a run or spending a few hours in the sun (don't forget the SPF moisturizer!). Don't be afraid to sweat a little.
Dewy Skin is Trending
From the runway (everywhere from Marc Jacobs to Marchesa) to the red carpet, it's impossible to scroll through your Instagram feed without seeing another shining example of this youthful trend. And while we're all familiar with J.Lo's iconic glow, we've recently been blinded by the complexions of celebs like Karlie Kloss and Chrissy Teigen, as well.
So there you have it. Say goodbye to finishing powders and mattifying foundations and don't be afraid to sweat it out a little (or just apply a little highlighter!)
