The minimalist, dewy makeup look doesn’t seem to be going out of style anytime soon. In fact, a top 2021 trend that is seen all over Instagram, called “dolphin skin,” is taking the dewy look to a new level. This trend mimics the smooth, plump, and reflective skin of a dolphin — giving a luminous glow that can be seen from yards away. The key to these trends is to keep your makeup as minimal as possible. The less products, the better. Because of this, I highly recommend Aveda makeup for all of your dewy-look needs.                    Neroli Compact

Aveda makeup is created from pure flower and plant essences — which means no chemicals, no artificial colors and no lab created fragrances. Simply put: Aveda only includes ingredients that you and your skin will love. Personally, I believe Aveda makeup helps enhance your natural beauty without trying to completely cover or alter your glow. Their products are infused with only the purest ingredients, such as essential oils, tourmaline, mica and lavender, and are completely free of talc, mineral oil and parabens. If you’re into skincare as much as I am, then you know this ingredients list is amazing (if you’re not super into skincare, let me tell you — this is what you’re looking for).

Their makeup pigments always begin so soft and pretty (which is perfect for a minimal spring look!), but can be darkened and more dramatic when layered, It is so easy to take your look from day-to-night with Aveda makeup. Today, we’re going to focus on just your easy, everyday makeup that’s perfect for skin. Especially if we are still donning masks at work and out in public, there is no need to really overdue it.

You can create an effortless spring makeup look with just three Aveda products. And, it will take you 10 minutes or less — it cant get much better than that. So, without further ado, here are my top 3 picks from Aveda for a beauty makeup look this spring. 


It doesn’t look like mask wearing will be going away before spring is in full swing unfortunately, but your lip game doesn’t have to suffer. With Aveda’s Liquid Color Balm, the beautiful color stays put even under your mask. This liquid cream applies like a gloss, then then you’ll watch it turn into a stunning, cushiony matte lipstick color once dry. For a bold lip, try the warm, red “Maraschino,” or the rich, rose-pink “Cucamelon.” Your high-vibrant color will last all day long without smudging.


Dewy skin starts with a tinted moisturizer that adds hydration to your skin without a matte finish. Hands-down this is my favorite tinted moisturizer EVER. It makes the skin look absolutely radiant and smooth while also creating a more even complexion. 100% vegan and 100% mineral-derived color — this is a tinted moisturizer you can feel good about. Blend Inner Light Tinted Moisturizer onto the skin and you’ll be set all day.

Don’t let the name “Illumination Single Eye Color” fool you. In addition to being a beautiful sheen eye color, this color is also a perfect highlighter for your face. Highlighter is another amazing way to create a dewy look on your skin (and it shows even with a mask!). Apply with a feathered brush above your cheekbones, down the bridge of your nose, on the inner corners of eyes, and above your cupid’s bow. Blend out with a fingertip for a seamless “dolphin skin” shine.
