Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Spring 2011: Maybelline's Secret to a Dewy Glow at BCBGMAXAZRIA
I'll be honest, I never really got what a "dewy" look entailed. It just didn't make sense to me. Are you supposed to look moist, or just slather on loads of makeup to make it look like you're not wearing any? As it turns out, neither is the case, the Maybelline makeup team told me backstage at BCBGMAXAZRIA. A dewy look is supposed to give you a natural, fresh-looking face. The purpose is to not cover up every blemish and mark on your skin but instead give you a restful, rosy glow. Even more, a dewy look done right means you won't even feel your makeup, which is nice when the temperatures rise above 80 degrees and you find yourself sliding off the subway seat.
The best thing about this trend is that it is definitely not seasonal good skin never goes out of fashion! If you want to get a fresh complexion in three steps, try these products that Maybelline used backstage on the models:
Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Eraser Foundation all over your face.
Maybelline Mineral Powder Finishing Veil lightly dusted on your face, especially your T-zone.
A lipstain, over lipstick. Try Maybelline Color Sensational Lipstain In the Buff to get more of a matte finish, rather than a shiny one.
