The last few years, I’ve been drawn to easier and more natural makeup routines. I love using products that are lightweight and breathable. I don’t feel like I always need a full-coverage makeup look, especially if I’m having a normal day working from home or running errands close by. Plus, ever since adopting this easy, dewy, and natural makeup routine, I have noticed how much clearer my skin has gotten. Not covering it up with thick, moisture-absorbing products has really worked wonders!

A lot of the questions I get on my Instagram and TikTok are asking me about my makeup routine. I have tried so many different product combinations to achieve this dewy and natural makeup routine, and I am so excited to share it with you all! This has been my go-to makeup routine for a while now, and it takes me 30 minutes or less. All of these products are truly my ride or dies, and I can’t live without them.

Products for an Easy, Dewy and Natural Makeup Routine


NYX Marshmallow Primer

If you have dry skin, then you will love this primer. It makes your skin feel hydrated, and my makeup goes on so smoothly. I can’t do my makeup routine without this step!

Rare Beauty Foundation

I bragged about this foundation in my recent blog post “What’s in My Cart for the Sephora VIB Sale,” and so many of you said it was on your list too! I can barely feel this foundation on my face since it is so lightweight. This product makes all the difference when you are aiming for a natural makeup routine.

Rare Beauty Concealer

This concealer is incredibly hydrating. It’s lightweight which I prefer in a concealer so it doesn’t look dry and cakey. It keeps my under eye looking bright, fresh, and awake.

Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer

Primer is a must anytime you are going to be using eyeshadow. This one by Urban Decay is a cult favorite in the makeup community, and for a good reason! It keeps my eyeshadow looking fresh all day long without creasing.

NYX Mico Brow Pencil

I’ve shared this brow pencil before in my “Affordable Makeup Dupes” blog post, and I love using it to fill in the end of my brows. Just filling in the end and not the entire brow gives the fluffy, laminated brow look that is so popular right now.

Anastasia Brow Freeze

I have loved the fluffy brow look lately, and the Anastasia brow freeze definitely does the trick! I use this product to push my brows up. This look is more untamed and is gives you a natural vibe.

Huda Beauty Eyeshadow Palette

This eyeshadow palette is a bit of a splurge, but it is so worth it. The colors in this palette are gorgeous and have such intense pigmentation. There are so many different shades to choose from for a natural look, including shimmer, mattes, and metallics.

Charlotte Tilbury Bronzer Contour Wand

For this dewy and natural makeup routine, using cream products is key. I love using this contour wand because it is effortless to apply and blend quickly. It turns out looking so natural.

Rare Beauty Blush

You can never go wrong with the Rare Beauty blush! Ever since I tried these, I have been hooked. The color range is so pretty and is really easy to apply when you are on the go.

Charlotte Tilbury Highlighter Wand

For a dewy makeup look, then you need this highlighter wand. It gives you that golden hour glow without looking too sparkly like some highlighters.

Rare Beauty Eyeliner

I use liquid eyeliner on top for a thin line to make my eyes pop. Since I still want this look to be natural, I don’t do a big wing or a thick line. The less intense, the better!

e.l.f. Eyeshadow Stick

For even more glow, I love to use the e.l.f. eyeshadow stick under my brow bone and on my cupid’s arrow. I also use it in the corners of my eyes to make them look even more awake and fresh.

Essence Eyeliner

Ever since I discovered this creme-colored eyeliner, I haven’t been able to live without it! I use it on my waterline to make my eyes pop with a bright-eyed effect and look bigger.

Charlotte Tilbury Setting Powder & Spray

With all the creams I use in my natural makeup routine, using a setting powder and spray is a must. This setting powder by Charlotte Tilbury doesn’t make you lose any of the dewiness we achieved during this look which is why I love it.

Essence Mascara Primer & Dime Beauty Mascara

If you haven’t used a mascara primer, then you really need to give it a try! This one by Essence is very affordable and makes my eyelashes more full and less clumpy when I put my mascara on. The mascara is really volumizing and doesn’t smudge throughout the day. My code for 20% off the mascara is MAXIE20.

Charlotte Tilbury Lip Liner

For a natural makeup look, a nude lip liner is definitely the way to go. It will match seamlessly no matter how dressed down or up you are. This is one of my most used ones of all time!

Dime Beauty Liquid Lipstick

I got the full set of 10 lipsticks from Dime Beauty and love them! My favorite colors for spring and summer are Bradley, Liam and Noah. My 20% off code at Dime Beauty is MAXIE20.

Fenty Beauty Lip Gloss

For an extra dewy pop on the lips, I use this Fenty Beauty lip stain. It isn’t sticky, is super luminous and has a lovely peach, vanilla scent.

If you aren’t used to wearing makeup or don’t feel super confident with the application, please don’t feel overwhelmed by the number of products! I know it may seem like a long list, but these are all so lightweight and are really easy to put on. I just use my fingers to apply most of them as I find that looks the most natural and is the easiest. I know that if you give these steps and products a try for a natural makeup routine, you’ll be looking like you’ve got that golden hour glow all day long!
