Glowing Makeup

Lately I've been loving glowing makeup looks. I know that mattes are more appropriate for the winter season, but I love the fresh-faced look that dewy makeup provides. So, I thought that I'd share a little makeup routine for a glowing look. This sort of thing is new on my blog, so let me know what you think of it!
I don't like using a heavy foundation, because I feel it makes my skin look cakey. This is one of the first bases I've tried that doesn't cling to my dry skin and make my face look like a patchwork quilt.
Since I still have lots of acne scars, I like to use a concealer. I've been liking this one a lot lately, but I think that it's important to find the right one for your skin.
Nothing wakes you up like a little swirl of blush! Just make sure that it's not to heavy.
I like to use this in my T-zone, but not to heavily. A translucent powder would probably be ideal for this look, but I don't have one at the moment.
Highlighter
As weird as it may sound, I typically use eyeshadows as highlighters. I tend to use one every day now because it makes my skin seem more full of life.
Eyeshadow Primer
If you aren't using a cream shadow, I think that this is a crucial step. It makes your eyeshadow last longer, and helps with the pigmentation.
Light Coloured Eyeshadows
I'm not sure why, but I haven't been doing any thing dramatic with my eye makeup lately. Right now, I prefer the look of lots of creams and pinks.
Mascara
For me, this is a crucial step, It instantly opens my eyes and makes me look more awake.
Lip Gloss
For a look like this, I like to reach for a light gloss instead of a lipstick. I feel like it completes the dewy look.

What kind of makeup have you been loving lately?
