Do I Dare?: Dewy Makeup

Do I Dare?: Dewy Makeup

Mariana made an excellent case for both dewy and matte makeup a while back and I still occasionally pop back to that roundup to see if I can inspire myself to finally give dew makeup a go. This strategy sort of worked when it came to the white hair streaks, did it not?

My concern is that I will look like I am walking around drenched in sweat, instead of looking like a lightly-glistened little flower. 

Well, after fawning over the following three cosmetic creations, I think I might be ready to take the risk. Hey, if I end up looking even one-millionth as chic as these ladies do, I'll be ecstatic.

How do people even manage to achieve such stunning looks? Is it magic? It might be! 

Well, this extremely editorial look on jaw-dropper Alina Posokhova is wonderful, even without factoring in the ultra-cool floral and water component. Extra points for that punchy eye makeup.

Tamara Melville deserves a standing ovation for this excellently subdued look. It is JUST the right amount of glow, leaving all the focus on Sue's extraordinarilyy striking features. Good call. 

Kudos to creative director J'hae Muveszet and photographer Mikhail Ranklin on this one too.

I don't even need to point out how breathtaking this is, right? Because DAMN, I could stare at this shot (presumably snapped for Pipa + Bella) for hours. The sheen level in play here could not be more perfect. And, on a relatively-related note, that lipstick hue is gorgeous.
