  • Right this way for smooth, glowy and youthful-looking skin

    With Korean beauty trends like ‘cloudless’ and glass skin having a seemingly endless influence, this season’s beauty looks are all about dewy make-up.

    Gone are the days when a soft focused, airbrushed matte finish was centre stage; it’s dewiness’ time to shine (literally). It’s all about having natural and youthful-looking skin with a healthy glow to it.

    The key to a dewy look is all in the prep – layer up your best serum and moisturiser for fresh and healthy skin that’s the perfect canvas for make-up. Then it’s time for dewy foundation, highlighter and setting spray to keep your glow in place all day long.

    With this in mind, we’ve handpicked some of our favourite glow-getters for fresh looking skin. Keep scrolling for this season’s hero dewy make-up products.

    Charlotte Tilbury Hollywood Flawless Filter, £30, John Lewis

    dewy makeup Charlotte Tilbury

    A complexion perfector, Hollywood Filter is kind of like a primer and highlighter in one. It gives your skin a really healthy glow with just the right amount of shine and the tiniest bit of pigment to colour correct for an airbrushed finish. Think celebrity red carpet skin in a bottle. (Plus, it’s oh so layer-able under your best foundation for special occasions.)

    dewy makeup

    A pearly cream formula, the Neo Nude highlighter makes your skin look smoother, brighter and more reflective, rather than adding a ton of sparkle to your complexion. It’s exactly what you need to look glowy rather than strobed-up.
