I just love dewy makeup. Whether it’s dinner with friends, a special event, or a party, I almost always go for this look. It never get’s old! Fresh youthful skin, bronzy eyes, and a nude lip. Here’s how I achieved it using my favourite products from Mecca Cosmetica.

Depending on my skin at the time, I tend to prefer to use something lighter than foundation; i.e. a tinted moisturiser. Here I use my Bare Minerals Complexion Rescue Tinted Hydrating Gel Cream. Typically I don’t powder, but finally got my hands on the Hourglass Ambient Palette and it is such a beautiful product. I dust this all over with a big fluffy brush to keep things in place.
To achieve that glow, apply the Nars Multiple in South Beach all over the cheeks. Do this with your fingers/and or a brush.
I apply a deep brown in the crease using a small fluffy brush. I apply the same colour under the eyes and smoke it out with the same brush for a seamless finish. On the lid, I use my finger to apply a gold shadow all over and in the tear duct. I can’t get enough of these shades! I finish the eyes with a black shadow to create a smokey line. I find the best way to apply this is with a small angled brush, making sure to stay close to the lashes. All of the shades I used to create this were from my forever favourite Urban Decay Naked Eyeshadow Palette.
And we can’t forget mascara! I use Two Faced Better than Sex.
Fill in any obvious gaps using light, quick strokes. I use the Hourglass Brow Sculpting Pencil for this. I then brush them upwards (The Hourglass pencil is double sided with a brush, win win!) to soften the product and voila.
Lips are kept super simple with a little tinted balm. I used the Mecca Cosmetica Lip Pot, and apply with my fingers.
