How To Get Glowing, Luminous, Dewy Skin

We’ve always loved to use skincare to achieve a no-makeup look, or to set a radiant base for makeup, which is why we launched Glowipedia™  in 2018. Every year, we create a skin-care lookbook to bring your skin goals to life, be it a Honey Glow Look or Cloudless Skin Look. It gives you everything you need, from product recs to pro application tips, to get the skin you want.

This year, we partnered with makeup artist Carolina Dalí-Trites to bring you three fresh looks featuring clever techniques and (of course) your favorite Glow Recipe products. Hollywood’s coolest stars turn to Carolina when they want a glowing makeup look. The New York-based makeup artist is known for her artistic, beautifully radiant looks. We knew she was the perfect partner to bring Glowipedia™ 2020 to life. Carolina created all-new glowing skin and makeup looks that you can DIY at home. (Want more? Check out our previous Glowipedia™ videos here.) Get ready to get inspired with the latest Glowipedia™ looks.

Carolina uses the products you’ll find in our brand new Glowipedia Dewy Skin Kit as a base for this fresh skin look. Dewy Skin, as we’re calling it, is glowing, luminous skin as fresh as the morning dew. It’s skin that looks healthy and glistening – but never oily. It plays especially well with creamy makeup formulas to give skin a fresh, natural texture. Carolina was inspired by the awakened look of dewy skin and created soft whispers of vibrant, blended eyeshadows for a watercolor effect around the eyes. 

To make this look super easy to achieve, we curated a condensed routine in the Glowipedia™ Dewy Skin Kit. A midi size Watermelon Glow PHA+BHA Pore-Tight Toner hydrated and helps to smooth texture, and a midi Banana Soufflé Moisture Cream creates all-day hydration and leaves skin with a luminous look. A deluxe Avocado Melt Retinol Eye Sleeping Mask helps you finish off the look by creating a hydrated base for your colorful eyeshadow.

To complete the look, Carolina uses:

Glow Tips

  • Prep skin for makeup with by applying Avocado Melt Retinol Sleeping Mask to your face — and make sure not to skip your neck
  • Apply Avocado Melt Retinol Eye Sleeping Mask to create a smooth canvas for your eyeshadow
  • Try combining serums: Layer on two serums, such as the Pineapple-C Bright Serum and Watermelon Glow Pink Juice Moisturizer, to target multiple concerns
  • Mist your brushes with the Watermelon Glow Ultra-Fine Mist to help foundation, cream bronzer, and cream blush melt into skin

Watch the video and give it a try yourself! Make sure you share your finished look with us on Instagram by tagging us at @glowrecipe and @carolinadali.
