see when i'm looking at the top pictures, the matte looks tons better and the dewy looks oily. but then that girl in the middle looks really good. then at the bottom, the matte looks like she's barely wearing makeup. i think typically dewy looks better and matte looks like porcelain but based on these pictures matte is way better.
I prefer more dewy looking skin. I looove me some sparkly highlighter. It looks more human and 3 dimensional. Matte skin looks boring and flat, and makes you look washed out. But I don't like over the top dewiness. I prefer the highlighter to only be on the cheeks, the browbone and the bridge of my nose. If you start caking it on everywhere on your face, you end up looking sweaty.
