BEAUTY BITE: THE DEWY DAYTIME LOOK

posted by Elshane on Apr 30 2014, under Beauty

When talking daytime spring beauty, it's hard to shake the smile off my face. Why? Well, you do the math. That golden tan {in my case, a sun-free, healthy spray tan} cuts my beauty routine in half, makes me feel twice as fresh, and half my age.

Long are the winter days of heavy powder, thick lashes, and skin contouring! My springtime beauty routine focuses on a fearless female's best asset, a natural glow. So what do I call it? The dewy daytime look!

To achieve the dewy daytime look, I rely on four key products, no more, no less:

Tinted Moisturizer- I recently discovered this CoverGirl + Olay Tone Rehab Foundation that weightlessly glides onto my skin while providing just enough coverage to cover my red spots, yet let my summer freckles take center stage. This is the first step in achieving the GLOW!

Concealer- This little wand holds so much power! Cover up, under-eye concealer, and redness reducer all in one, I rely on concealer to keep my skin looking flawless. Concealer Balm by CoverGirl + Olay comes in a convenient lipstick-look-alike tube, perfect to throw in your handbag!

Pink Blush: As a fashion stylist, I am constantly behind the scenes of photo shoots, learning tips from professional celebrity makeup artists. They all say the same thing: pink blush! I have learned that adding a bit of pink to your cheeks, especially while accompanying a golden springtime tan, gives you a perfectly flushed, fresh face. I love the CoverGirl Clean Glow blush because it has a three-tone gradient of cheek color. I simply run my brush across all three shades and blend it onto my upper cheekbones.

Black Mascara: I finish off this springtime beauty regimen with a few coats of subtle black mascara. With a face glowing so naturally from the clean tinted moisturizer, concealer and blush, black mascara is all you need to complete the dewy daytime look! Black mascara against your glowing skin will allow your eyes to pop naturally and subtly, foregoing any need for eye shadow. I've been using CoverGirl Flamed Out Mascara for over a year after discovering it at my local drugstore. With no clumps or residue in sight, this mascara is a one-and-done to complete my favorite springtime beauty regimen, the dewy daytime look!
