Lately, I have seen several women on television wearing a new foundation or a new moisturizer that is dewy. It looks beautiful, but I have no idea which one is it.

I have very-dry skin, and like my make-up to be DEWY, and most foundations make my skin dry, especially the matte one, which does nothing for my skin, but makes it look drier.

I purchased Elizabeth Arden foundation, and put in a dab of oil, and it has been the closest one to make my skin look alive, but E/A is too expensive.....

How about these tinted moisturizers. Does anyone know which one makes the skin look dewy?

Hoping that I get some solutions, here. Thank you,

I really like L'Oreal True Match Lumi. You can get it for around $10 or less at Target or Walmart.

I have always put a moisturizer (or coconut oil) on my face prior to putting on any foundation. But True Match Lumi is the only foundation that I have found yet that keeps my face moisturized all day and night and not dried out. I love how it feels going on and how well it covers and blends without having to use much at all. It really has a nice moisturizing feel to it. I have even skipped (or forgot) the moisturizer underneath a few times and it still feels great.

I have also heard good things about the Neutrogena Hydro Boost which is also around $10.

Any of the foundations you see on TV on the info-ads is going to cost an arm and a leg. They may have introductory offers but after that they are all very expensive.

You might try using an illuminating highlighter/concealer to get that dewy look.

I just bought my first MAC foundation yesterday. One day in but satisfied with its short performance. I got the Studio one which is described as looking dewy while having a satin finish.

Yes, if it's a newer look the OP is noticing, the dewyness might be from a highlighter.

I wear a Mary Kay tinted moisturizer. Love it. I also have a little jar of Ponds face cream - I put a few drops of Estee Lauder All Day make-up into it and stir it up.

Gives coverage but not make-upy.

Which ONE? Walk into a Sephora or Ulta, and they can probably recommend a dozen or so foundations that are more dewy than matte. But like others have mentioned, it's probably also a function of illuminating moisturizers/primers as well as liberal use of highlighters. Highighting and contouring is the big makeup craze these days.

I'm hating on the highlighters these days. Many people look like grease balls now. And then there are the ones that highlight the tip of their nose.

Highlighting can look good on camera, but often terrible in real life.

I'd just go for the dewy hydrating foundation and call it a day.

Could it be BB cream? It's popular in Korea by both men and women, getting popular here in the US apparently?

youtube video on how to make it yourself

sounds like it is a sun block/lotion/foundation that's mixed together and packaged at a marked up price, video makes it look easy to make

Target : Expect More. Pay Less.

Corn-fused: you have been very helpful and kind with your message, and I thank you. I will try all of them. I do not mind paying up to $35 per bottle, but Elizabeth Arden's Foundation is $49 plus tax. That places it on a different range, however, it is excellent.........
