A dewy foundation is great when you have a lacklustre complexion or are in need of a radiance boost.

Dewy foundations are enriched with hydrating ingredients such as Hyaluronic Acid, and illuminating light-reflective optics which brighten and even out the skin tone. Together, they give the appearance of a radiant complexion.

Dewy foundations are ideal for mature and dry skin types, thanks to their hydrating properties. They are loved for their lightweight texture that won't settle into fine lines & wrinkles but instead leaves skin feeling fresh. And their non-greasy formulations will help provide hydrating coverage for dry patchy areas, without leaving an oily shine.
