When dewy meets matte, a brand new makeup trend called 'mewy' is born. This look is about striking the right balance between both dewy and matte makeup trends. This means keeping your skin dewy and highlighted on the high points while mattifying the rest of your base. It might be a little tricky to combine these two absolutely different makeup finishes together, and that's where we come in! If you're wondering how to nail this trend, follow these steps below.
Always apply makeup on clean skin. First, wash your face with a cleanser and then exfoliate for a good 2-5 minutes. Pat dry, spritz some facial mist and apply a moisturiser after. You're ready to move on to the next step

One of the most important steps is to invest in a good primer. Use a mattifying primer on your T-zone area and a hydrating primer on the jawline area.
In order to blend your base well, take a damp beauty blender to pat your foundation to your skin. For a natural look opt for a foundation that gives a medium coverage. Add a drop of primer to the foundation and apply it to your skin for more coverage.

When it comes using a highlighter - the more product, the better! Remember ladies, it's all about finding the right balance for 'mewy'. Aim to apply the product on your cheekbones, Cupid's bow, bridge of your nose, underneath the brow bone and a little on your lids.
If you don't know how to make your makeup, watch this video first! Baking minimizes the shine and gives skin a rather subtle and matte finish.
Don't forget to apply a creamy blush post your makeup. It'll give your skin a natural, flushed look.

You need to pick a lippie that's neither too matte or glossy. A lipstick that gives your pout a satin finish should be your aim. Yep, it's as easy as that!
