This Unexpected Foundation Tip Will Give You the Dewiest Finish
Commit these three words to memory: Just add water.
Yes, you can add water to your eye shadow or powder pigments to nab a bit more product and intensify the colour payoff, but one product you may not have expected to mix with a little H2O is your foundation.
Rebecca Restrepo, a celebrity makeup artist who works with Mandy Moore, Emily Blunt, and America Ferrara, says swirling your liquid foundation with water right before you apply will help give it a dewier finish. "It adds moisture without any excess oil and makes the skin look even more radiant," she says. We recommend dabbing your newly hydrated formula on with our holy grail foundation applicator, a Beautyblender ($30) for an impossibly glowing finish. Couldn't be any easier, right?

Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation ($95)
This foundation was met with rave reviews by the editors as Byrdie, and for good reason. It's incredibly lightweight, so you don't feel like you're wearing anything, but it still does a good job of covering up imperfections with only one pump of product.
