I think we tend to underestimate the power of a good skincare routine and your skin prep that you do before putting on your makeup for the day. Your skin prep is KEY for flawless dewy looking makeup, and I stan by that. We should all be prioritizing skincare as much as we do our makeup if we want our base to look like smooth, buttery, perfection.
If you’re going to purchase any of the products mentioned in this blog post, run don’t walk to Sephora and get the Glow Recipe Dew Drops! These have easily become one of my must-haves for my skin prep. This product makes your skin look supple, hydrated, and bouncy. Not to mention it also has Niacinamide in it, which is a great ingredient for clearing acne and reducing the appearance of acne scars (so it also has skin benefits, which WE LOVE).
You can also never use too much of this product. My skin is more on the dryer side, and my skin loves this stuff. This is a no brainer for anyone looking to elevate their skin prep game.
Saie Glowy Super Gel Lightweight Dewy Highlighter
The Saie Beauty highlighter gel 100% needed to be included in my top 3. Not only does this product give you dewy and hydrated looking skin, but it also gives you a GLOW that a highlighter would give you.
The way Matilda Djerf (an icon and queen of the no-makeup makeup look) likes to use this product is on the high points of her face – aka her cheekbones where you would use highlighter, her forehead, and her nose. I personally like to use this product all over my face for days I don’t want to wear any makeup. I think the glow from this product really makes my skin look alive and awake on no makeup days, so I love this. It’s a must-have for sure.
Charlotte Tilbury Flawless Filter
This product has all the hype right now, and the brand Charlotte Tilbury in general. TikTok blew this product up, and let me tell you, it’s definitely worth the hype and I think everyone needs this product. You can use this as a primer for your foundation, to highlight, or you can even use it as your foundation. It gives the prettiest glow and it really does make your skin look flawless *hence the name of the product*.
You can’t go wrong with the Charlotte Tilbury flawless filter. And if you’re looking for a dupe for this product, the Elf Halo Glow is the EXACT same formula and feel for the fraction of the price *thanks to TikTok for that tip*.
