How To Choose The Right Dewy Setting Spray

  • Skin type

Dewy setting sprays are ideal for dry and dull skin as they come packed with moisture or water-based formula. This helps give a soft glow to dry skin while also providing hydration benefits. Combination and oily skin types may find that dewy setting sprays make their skin even greasier, but if they don’t have excess oil, a lightweight setting spray which is also non-comedogenic may work. But dewy sprays suit dry and normal skin types better. Even mature skin will benefit from a dewy finish as the formula won’t cake up or settle into fine lines and wrinkles.

  • Formula

Ensure that the formula is lightweight and has a non-sticky and non-greasy consistency. Dewy setting sprays that are quick-drying help immensely for on-the-go touch-ups. Some sprays may have fragrance and if you’re sensitive to it, ensure to read the label to avoid it. A few setting sprays can have strong scents which may cause a reaction as they are directly sprayed on the face. You can patch test setting sprays as with every other beauty product or read some reviews online.

  • Ingredients

It is essential to invest in formulas with high-quality ingredients devoid of harmful additives. To prevent flare-ups, opt for formulas that don’t contain alcohol, fragrance, parabens, sulfates, and other harsh chemicals.

After you’ve purchased a dewy setting spray you like, it’s time to learn how to use it for the ultimate glow!

How To Use Dewy Setting Spray

  • Step 1: Ensure that all your makeup is done, and you’re satisfied with how it looks.
  • Step 2: Shake the contents of the dewy setting spray bottle for an even mixing.
  • Step 3: Hold your dewy setting spray bottle about 8-10 inches away from your face and lightly spritz on the right side of the face.
  • Step 4: From the same distance, spray the mist on the left side of your face.
  • Step 5: Spritz once in the center of your face with your eyes closed.
  • Step 6: Wait for the setting spray to dry.
  • Step 7: Repeat if you feel the need for a brighter glow.
  • Step 8: Reapply throughout the day as and when needed to give your skin a boost of freshness.

Note: You can also apply dewy setting sprays on bare skin without any makeup for a natural glow to keep your skin looking and feeling fresh.

sweet how-to

01 finding your shade for all-over concealing: choose a shade closest to your skin tone. identify your shade level (fair-rich) & undertone. shades progress in-depth as you go from 1-10 within your shade level.

02 for spot concealing: use a concealer the same shade as your foundation. to conceal a pesky blemish, dab some concealer on top and wait 2 minutes before blending it out.

03 for brightening: choose a shade at least 1-2 shades lighter than your skin tone or use fair 1 for the ultimate, bright white highlight.

04 for correcting: choose a color correcting shade within the lineup. a pink-toned concealer helps conceal blue and purple tones in lighter skin and covers up dark spots and dark circles under the eyes. an orange-red concealer helps cancel out dark areas on darker-toned skin. a yellow concealer neutralizes redness around the mouth and the nose and brightens the undereye area. top with a skin tone shade to even out complexion.

05 for contouring: choose a shade at least 2-3 shades deeper than your skin tone.

06 to lighten a shade: mix in our true white: fair 1

07 to use rich 10, the blue-black shade: use to deepen the tan to rich shades and make them cooler, correct what you need, and contour the richest skin tones. a little goes a long way, so use sparingly and add as needed.

5 Ways to Create Faux Freckles That Look Totally Natural

Whether you have them naturally or need to fake it ’til you make it, freckles are always a good idea and have become increasingly more popular in makeup trends over the past few years. Since freckles are here to stay and help your complexion look flushed and healthy, you might need some help in re-creating them if you weren’t born with them, to begin with. If you don’t have a natural freckle in sight but desperately want some, we’ve got great news: you can fake your freckles. From freckle pens to henna, we’ve rounded up a few different ways you can fake the look of freckles that are way easier than you might think. Ahead, are all of the tips you need to know for creating the most believable, natural-looking freckles that will have anyone fooled.

01 Experiment with a Freckle Pen

Yes, freckle pens are a real thing and make our lives so easy when creating faux freckles. Thanks to Freck Beauty, they’ve created freckle pens that are specifically designed to help you create freckles in a few different shades for different skin tones. To use the pens correctly, all you need to do is dip the brush in the product and lightly apply freckles on the face to resemble a natural cluster. The key with this product is to continue to tap the brush lightly onto the skin until you’ve created enough freckles to your satisfaction. The more you practice with the brush, the easier it will get. If you add space in between freckles, the better and more believable they’ll end up looking. This freckle pen from Sephora can also help apply natural-looking freckles if you’re looking for something slightly different.

02 Take a Second Look at Your Brow Pencil

Since brow pencils can be natural in tone, they are a great tool to utilize when creating freckles that blend well with your skin and hair. You want to avoid creating freckles with a noticeable contrast that they look out of place on the face. A few different brow products will work for this, yet those with precise pointed tips are best to create a natural freckle look since they are naturally small. You can use a waterproof pencil with a fine tip such as this Brow Blade Waterproof Eyebrow Pencil & Ink Stain from Urban Decay. This dual-sided pencil contains a precise pencil and marker that help define and fill in freckles on the skin, not to mention suitable natural, fluffy-looking eyebrows. When practicing with a brow pencil, you can opt to try different-sized freckles to see which ones work best. While you want to avoid anything looking noticeably large, the more misshaped they are, the more they will come off as natural, and no one will be the wiser.

03 Opt for Waterproof Eyeliner

If you need something in a pinch and have a waterproof eyeliner (liquid or pencil) in a soft brown or darker brown tone lying around, that can also be used as a tool to create faux freckles. With waterproof formulas, it’s important to keep in mind that once they’ve set on the skin, they are a tad harder to remove, so precision is key with the pencil to make sure there’s no smearing or smudging. If you’re going to try this tip, gently apply the pencil to the skin to create a faint dot and then follow up by pressing a tad harder for the freckle to become more visible. If you’re using a liquid eyeliner, press the tip on a paper towel a few times to get the ink flowing and make sure the tip has enough product.

Think of it like a practice run before applying the freckles for good. Try this technique for a few days to get the hang of creating the freckle shape and using the product together. While this might take you longer, they will look better in the long run with a little patience. Be sure to keep your hands off your face throughout the day not to ruin any of the freckles you’ve applied.

04 Use a Stencil

If the act of creating faux freckles on your own is intimidating, don’t worry. You can use a stencil to help you know where to place the freckles and utilize it as a guide if you’re feeling overwhelmed. This stencil kit from Bronzie is easy to use and will give you the look of freckles in a few simple steps and completely takes away the worry of knowing where and how to apply them. Place the stencil across the face as directed and use makeup to fill in the areas where the freckles should be, along with thinking about where the sun hits naturally on the face for a sun-kissed, freckled finish. If you want your freckles to last, apply a setting spray to the skin after you’re done to keep everything in place.

05 Consider Using Henna

Mihenna
The Henna Freckle Kit $18.99

Known for creating gorgeous, long-lasting works of art on the skin, henna has been used for centuries in hair and beauty remedies and treatments and is suitable to use for creating faux freckles, too. Using a kit like this one from Mihenna is ideal if henna is the route you’re taking. An organic, ready-made henna paste, moisturizing coconut oil, and a specially shaped cone that gives precise and natural freckles are included in the kit for a freckle application that lasts and looks beautiful. Freehand freckles on your face or body by using the cone to apply the henna; wherever you decide, this kit will turn you into a pro for creating freckles in no time at all. Lightly tap the henna after you’ve applied it to the skin to help set it and keep freckles in place.

Why Lancôme Teint Idole Ultra Wear Is the Only Foundation I Like to Wear

I’ve never been a foundation girl. My makeup arsenal is full of BB creams, CC creams, tinted serums, and any other version of breathable face makeup that is anything but the foundation. But as we return to our “new normal,” I’m trying to break old beauty habits and give products I’ve initially written off in the past a second chance, like foundation. I chose to test an editor-favorite — the Lancôme Teint Idole Ultra 24H Long Wear Foundation. I’ve heard my fellow BeautyLeeBar.com editors, as well as beauty influencers on social media, sing its praises so I had to get my hands on a bottle. The brand kindly sent one over so I could share my experience as someone who’s always had an aversion to a foundation.

The Formula

Lancôme Teint Idole Ultra Foundation is hailed for its 24-hour full-coverage formula that leaves behind a natural matte finish with SPF 15. The fact that it comes in 50 diverse shades makes the daunting task of finding your foundation true match way easier. I used the E-Shade Finder on Lancome.com, a virtual foundation shade-matcher tool, to find my skin’s best foundation shade, which turned out to be 520 Suede Warm.

The formula itself contains eternal soft polymers which Lancôme notes allow for “an increased level of comfort for ultra-long wear”, plus ingredients like perlite and silica to absorb excess oil.

My Experience 

After applying face primer, I blended in a few drops with a makeup sponge and then went back in to add a couple more drops for my desired coverage. The color blended beautifully into my skin tone and might be the closest match to any of my face makeup (proof of the E-Shade Finder’s powers). I finished the rest of my makeup and went about my day, never having to blot my T-zone area.

My go-to complexion products leave me with my desired dewy look, so I was nervous about how I’d feel with a matte complexion. When I think of anything matte, I think of the matte lipstick formulas that glide on smooth but eventually tighten throughout the day, resulting in cracked lips. But a cracked complexion wasn’t the case at all for me here. Instead, my skin looked polished without being overly matte and felt comfortable enough to wear all day.

While I’m still not ready to fully retire my signature dewy makeup look, I will make a space in my arsenal for this foundation. I feel like I’ve found the unicorn of foundations in Lancôme Teint Idole Ultra Foundation: semi-matte, but not flat, oil-absorbing, and true to color.
