Samantha Lennon, one of our favorite New York City makeup artisans, checked in this month about Summer Dews: which makeup trends and products to attempt, rather than avoid, this summer when crafting a dewy, healthy glow – like the one sported by actress Hayden Panetierre.

Lennon is not a celebrity makeup artist; she is your artisan, working tirelessly to help the regular Manhattanite master makeup and achieve any look they’d like through her artistic eye and understanding of products, as well as her astounding technical skill.

Summer Dew Do:
“For a dewy look, even if you have oily skin, use a mattifying toner and a mattifying lotion followed by an oil free tinted moisturizer (such as Laura Mercier Oil-Free Tinted Moisturizer) will give you that dewy look without the excess oil. If you have dry skin, try a standard tinted moisturizer as it gives the right amount of dewiness. Carry around blotting sheets!

Go For the Gold:
Gilded eyes are not reserved for anyone other than you. Try 14 karat peepers at least once this summer, like a Saturday afternoon wedding or a boat trip! “Why not play with gold shadow? Try a shimmery or cream one, since it will work with the weather, and the dewiness of your look. Try waterproof cream color from Makeup Forever in Shade 11 Gold.”

Be Cheeky:
“For cheeks, try Makeup Forever HD Cream Blushes. They are gorgeous when you are going for that dewy look. Pump a small amount on your hand, smear it out, and then dip your blush brush on it to apply.”
