Dewy Secrets...

So this is probably one of my most asked questions on Instagram. How I get glowing dewy skin? I also included the concealer I use because I also get a lot of questions on it. First and foremost the most important factor of this routine is Mac Fix +. It basically gives your skin not only moisture but it emphasizes the highlight to another level. Essentially its designed to have powder sink into your skin and make it appear very natural and non-cakey. Now before adding all these products its recommended to use your daily moisturizer. To get extra moisture I apply Fix + after my moisturizer.  I then go ahead and apply my Armani Luminous Silk foundation (shade #8) and yes this foundation is AMAZING! As seen in the picture for concealer I use Makeup Forever Full Cover (shade#3). It's the most flawless coverage and it dries matte. For my highlight I use my absolute favorite product of all time, Est ér Lauder "Heat Wave". I use this every time I do my makeup, its definetely a staple product. The brush I use to apply the highlighter is shown in the picture below, Morphe M310. It picks up just enough product and truly gives a flawless application. After all these steps are completed I spray my face once again with Mac Fix +, after about 30 minutes my skin starts to look wet. Now I don't recommend this for everyone, if you have oily skin you probably won't be ecstatic with the outcome considering you will end up looking greasy. I on the other hand have very dry skin, therefore I prefer this look over matte any day. I hope I was helpful with this review, let me know your thoughts :)

  3. Hea, I've been seeing everyone using the fix+ but I don't get the purpose of it??
    You have no idea how nice it is to finally a makeup artist with dry skin.
    I check your instagram religiously I'm seriously in love with you. You are beyond gorgeous and your makeup is always done to perfection.

  4. This is so exciting. I have combination skin but I'm willing to give this a try ! Your glow is literally out of this world. So do you recommend any primers? Or do you think they're just gimmicks?

    1. Mac 'Soft and Gentle" is a nice highlight but its not golden, its more of a silver champagne glow.

  6. You can find it in a CCO near you @ least that's where I got mines or nyx has some pretty illuminators even I was surprised at how beautiful they show up on the skin I even use it more than my heat wave

  8. Yay! I love that you include your shade colors :) I keep moving to dry climates (Canada and now Chicago) so I'm always looking for ways to incorporate some moisture into my routine. Also, I was wondering if you use any eye cream under your concealer? I'm turning 27 and people are continually telling me to start using it... Anyways, so happy you started a blog. Congrats <3

  16. Omg I rememeber you from when I used to work in macys I always wanted to ask you about ur make up routine, thank you for sharing I was having mixed thoughts about the fix+ but now I think I need it! & for people trying to find an alternative to heat wave, you have to find a nigh lighter that works for your complexion, I use a good quality baked marbled bronzer paired with radiance enhancer from e.l.f cosmetics (3$) & it looks very nice on. I apply this before the bronzer.

  17. This is extremely helpful, thank you. I am trying to introduce a cream foundation into my routine, I typically wear powder and for some reason I cannot get it to look like it's my skin as opposed to a layer of makeup on top of my skin.

  21. And I know you may not like powder, I have dry skin like I said and it doesnt really work for us but you should try Makeupforever duo mat powder, with just a moisturizer and primer, you will remember me lol it works like a foundation, super smooth and matte.

  25. Hey Amra!
    So glad you're taking this chance with blogging, I have been waiting! I have been following you via IG since your mac days! And I have been obsessed ever since! I love how your foundation looks so flawless; so I wanted to know do you solely use the beauty blender to apply your foundation and your concealer? I also wanted to know how you apply your contour & blush?!

  29. Amrezy, since you prefer dewy over matte? What finished product would you recommend using instead of powder? I have combination skin, so if I use MAC+ I dont want to look too oily. Btw, so excited and proud that you have started a blog.. great way to interact with your fans! :D
