The Minimal Makeup Routine

The minimal makeup routine

| The Minimal Makeup Routine! | 

I'm a big fan of fresh, natural looking makeup and it's the look I tend to opt for on a day-to-day basis. Every now and then I like to sit down and play around with my makeup stash and that's usually when I go for a more dramatic look like the one I created with the Morphe 35p palette. But unfortunately, I just don't have the time or the energy to do that every day so these fuss-free products are usually what I reach for when I have a long to-do list to tackle......

Base:
I always start off with a hydrating primer and if you read my Debenhams beauty haul then you'll know that I've been loving the Too Faced Hangover Primer. It provides hydration and leaves a smooth base for your foundation application. This is one of the best hydrating primers I've tried so far and it's a must have in your makeup bag if you suffer from dry skin. 

I've been using a new foundation recently: Charlotte Tilbury Light Wonder. It provides a gorgeous luminous finish and makes my skin look really healthy. As you can probably guess from the name, the coverage is quite sheer which isn't the best for my problematic skin. However, to solve that problem I like to apply two layers of the foundation as well as concentrating a full coverage concealer in the areas that I need to.  

Complexion:
To achieve a healthy looking complexion I've been reaching for the Hourglass Surreal Light palette {review}. Each of the light-reflecting powders provides a subtle radiant finish to the skin making it the perfect palette for my everyday minimal makeup routine. The blush 'Surreal Effect' is easily my favourite and I also love the strobing powder. It's certainly a swoon-worthy palette!

Eyes & Brows:
Moving onto brows and the most used product in my everyday makeup stash is the Hi Impact Brows palette* {review} This is a great product for creating a simple everyday brow. The pigmentation of all of the powders is incredible so it's easy to work with, whether you like a subtle brow or a strong brow.

I like to keep my eyeshadow very simple and understated on a daily basis so I often reach for my Nars eyeshadow duo in St-Paul-De-Vence. This eyeshadow duo houses a pale, almost rose gold pink shade and a matte brown. The light neutral shades are the perfect fuss-free hues that look subtle on the eyes. I'm obsessed with it and I have a long list of some other eyeshadow duos that I want to try in the future!

To finish off my eye makeup I like to apply the L'oreal Telescopic Extra Black Mascara* {review}. The extra black formula defines my lashes like no other and the formula separates them really well to provide a long fluttery effect. Love!

Lips:
And lastly is the lips! Some people like to say "give a girl the right shoes and she can conquer the world", but I like to say "give a girl the right lipstick and she can conquer the world". My perfect everyday lipstick shade is Mac Creme Cup which is a pale baby pink shade. It provides a subtle wash of pink colour to the lips and the cremesheen finish is kind to my dry, chapped winter lips. It's a staple in my nude lipstick collection!
