Road Test: The Best Makeup on Pinterest
We tried the fall makeup trends everyone's pinning to help you figure out which looks are worth trying to mimic. Here are the ones to try
Dewy skinWhat's harder than mastering the minimal makeup look? Successfully pulling off dewy skin. This look is as much about skin care as it is about makeup, so I started by exfoliating with Arcona Golden Grain Gommage, $42. Then I applied Fresh Creme Ancienne Infusion, $90, which acts as a toner and leaves skin luminous. For a bit more glow, I used Jouer Luminizing Moisture Tint, $38, all over. Under my eyes (and over a few red spots) I layered Benefit Hello Flawless Oxygen Wow Liquid Foundation, $34, and highlighted above my cheeks with Anastasia Highlighting Creme Duo in Aspen, $26. Finally I dabbed a light layer of Urban Decay Afterglow Glide-On Cheek Tint in Crush, $24, on the apples of my cheeks to fake a subtle flush.
My hints: The trick to creating dewy skin is to make the glow look like it's coming from within your skin -- not on top of it. I like to mix highlighter and foundation together before applying so they are blended well, which helps it sink into my skin more naturally. I also avoid the T-zone when applying anything shimmery, otherwise I think I end up looking more sweaty than glowy.
