Dewy + Hydrating Spring Makeup Routine

Did you know that drinking enough water is essential to your skincare routine? Gosh, I have such a hard time meeting that daily quota but I'm doing my best! My go-to pure & crisp drink is smartwater®, which I pick up from Target while I'm doing one of my weekly Target strolls :) 

With springtime on the horizon, I love all the fresh flowers and sunshine outside. It inspires me to wear brighter colors, make flower arrangements, and serves as a reminder to keep my skin and body hydrated! Snag the 6-pack smartwater from Target and pick up some makeup while you're there so you can follow my hydrating & dewy springtime makeup tutorial! 

Makeup Shopping List
Moisturizer (preferably with SPF)
Hydrating skin primer
Foundation with SPF
Mauve creamy matte lipstick
Neutral makeup palette
Golden-pink blush
Volumizing mascara
Golden face highlighter
Glitter liquid eyeshadow (I picked up a rose gold shade)
Makeup finishing spray

1. Hydrate!
Gotta hydrate your skin with a moisturizer that seeps into the skin, and has SPF to protect your biggest asset! Make sure to grab some vapor distilled smartwater to hydrate yourself as well :) 

2. Prime your skin & use beauty blender to apply foundation
I use an illuminizing primer all over to make my skin look dewy and fresh. Then use a damp beauty blender to apply your favorite foundation with SPF all over your face. You'll pat the foundation into your skin so it has more staying power. 

3. Highlight browbone & inner corners on eyes
Use your favorite neutral eyeshadow palette for the next couple of steps. I used a light shimmery pink  to highlight my browbone and the inner corner. 

4. Deepen the crease 
Use a fluffy brush and find a warm brown tone on your palette, then apply that to the crease. Lightly go back and forth along the crease then use the windshield wiper motion and go upwards to blend and 'smoke out'. 

5. Glitter the lids!
My favorite part! This rose gold formula is pretty creamy, so I applied directly to my lids and then patted with my ring finger to blend into the crease. The shimmer gives the illusion of being wet, which is perfect for this hydrating makeup routine. 

6. Highlight your pretty face
Finish your face makeup with more pretty shimmery highlight! Spring is all about being bright, shimmery and happy ;) Apply this to your upper cheekbones, down the center of your nose, and along the Cupid's bow. You want the high points of your face to be reflective and gorgeous! 

7. Blush it up
I picked up a golden-pink blush that would look good on any skin tone! Smile, and apply lightly to the apples of your cheeks with a fluffy brush. 

8. Apply your lippie
With how much shimmer and glitz I have going everywhere else, I toned it down with the lipstick choice. I picked up a creamy matte mauve shade that will complement the other shades I've used, while still adding some dimension.

9. Lashes & finishing spray!
Finish with a dewy finishing spray, and your favorite volumizing mascara! This look is perfect for any spring occasion, I'll be wearing this on vacation to go bike in Central Park in NY :) 

10. Hydrate with smartwater!
While wearing this look in Central Park, I'll need to bring my smartwater so I can hydrate during the sunny day. 

Where would you wear this look? Where would you bring your smartwater to hydrate?
