Minimal Everyday Makeup

Hello Beauties, How are you all? I recently took this snap and posted it online where I got several comments about the make-up I was wearing so I thought I’d write a blog post about it. When this was taken I was on my way to the mall for a quick shopping trip as I needed a few last minute things before a family wedding I was going to the following weekend and also needed to get my eyebrows threaded. I was feeling a little under the weather so I didn’t want to to wear much make-up so went for a very minimalist look using the below products.


After using my Origins Make a Difference moisturiser I applied a small amount of Nars Sheer Glow Foundation using my all time favourite brush, the Sigma F80 which is a flat top Kabuki.  This blends the product effortlessly into the skin and leaves a flawless finish and a natural healthy glow. 

Following this, I added a hint of colour to my cheeks using MAC Mocha powder blush which is a really subtle pink. I like using this blush because it gives a pretty hint of colour without being too over the top, it blends well and is easy to use as it isn’t overly pigmented.

As I was having a good skin day I didn’t need any concealer and also didn’t apply any more powder products such as bronzer or setting powder as I wanted to maintain the glow from the foundation.

Eyes and Lips

Moving onto eyes and lips, I added a little Urban Decay Priming Potion to my lids followed by MAC Brule eyeshadow, a almost skin colour beige as I wanted a very neutral look. The one bad thing about having your eyebrows threaded is that it plays havoc with eye make-up because you have to often pull your skin tight while they do it so I’ve learnt the hard way not to wear anything too heavy.

I decided to skip eyeliner due to the reasons above and jump straight to a a very thin layer of Smashbox Full Exposure Mascara. I put on so little so people may think it’s not worth it but it added a tiny bit of definition to my already long lashes and helped open up my eyes a little.

Last but not least I put on a sweep of one of my most used lipsticks. YSL Rouge Volupte in Number 8, a pretty baby pink that goes with any make-up look.

What do you think of my minimal everyday make-up look?

    Love your no makeup makeup look! You look gorgeous.
    Ever since moving to Barcelona, I've been going mostly for this look as it has been really hot and with oily skin I just feel less is more.
