Start with your skin care
Before anything, you’re going to need to determine your skin’s current state. If you’re oily, apply an oil-control primer or toner as your first layer. Try Urban Decay De-Slick Oil-Control Makeup
Setting Spray (RM139) which you spray and dab on clean, dry skin. “For your dewy look, you’ll be adding light-reflecting products, so this will keep you from becoming way too shiny,” says Katie Jane Hughes, a makeup artist in New York City.
On the flip side, if you’re dry and you put on something shimmery, it can clump up and make your skin’s texture look uneven. So, pre-makeup, smooth on a hyaluronic acid like Skin Inc Hyaluronic Acid Serum (RM179) and/or a lightweight gel cream, like Boscia Tsubaki Glotion – Instant Luminizing Moisturiser (RM166), which offers hydration yet soaks into your skin quickly.
