I Asked My 5 Glowiest Beauty Buddies for Their Favorite Dewy Foundations

I Asked My 5 Glowiest Beauty Buddies for Their Favorite Dewy Foundations by COURTNEY HIGGS facebook pinterest email Favorite The TK Best Dewy Foundations, According to Makeup Artists and EditorsPinterest PHOTO: @SARAHNELSONMAKEUP  Makeup trends come and makeup trends go, but one look that's not going anywhere anytime soon is dewy skin. If like me, you follow tons of celebrity makeup artists, influencers, and beauty editors then your Instagram feed is probably a treasure trove of popping highlights and radiant complexions. And while there's no denying it's a beautiful look, it's also super functional, since the added oils and humectants bring out the best in dry and mature skin types.  This glowy look is a gateway to youthful, healthy-looking skin, but achieving it for yourself might feel like an unsolvable mystery. Aside from a kickass skincare routine, you'll want to grab a dewy foundation to give your skin that perfect, glassy finish. To get the best options for us, I asked five of my favorite makeup artists and beauty editors to share the ones that make their beauty-loving heart skip a beat.   Read on for all their favorite dewy foundations, along with a few more that have earned top reviews.

The coverage is super-buildable, and I love how weightless the consistency is so you really don't feel like you're wearing anything. I can definitely feel some dewy foundations sitting on top of my face—it's not a sensation I love—and this is not one of them!" — Erin Jahns, Who What Wear beauty editor   Wear it with:  Koh Gen Do Maifanshi Makeup Color BasePinterest SHOP Favorite Koh Gen Do Maifanshi Makeup Color Base ($65) "I always pair it with the brand's yellow-toned Maifanshi Makeup Color Base.
