There are two types of people in this world- one, who likes to do bold, OTT glam makeup, and others, who like to keep things minimal and subtle. In a world, where graphic eyeliners and bold lips are all the rage, you still decided to stick to your basic routine and not give in to the temptation of trying bold and extra glam makeup looks, which is quite commendable, and we want to let you know that you are not alone in this. You will find so many individuals like you who always prefer BB or CC cream over full-coverage liquid foundation and don’t really mind keeping their makeup routine pretty simple and minimal.
However, the latest beauty trends suggest something else. Minimal makeup has become a thing now, and it is gaining popularity each passing day. Different people have different takes on minimal makeup, some consider it as an opportunity to wear little to no makeup, others use it as a chance to cut down on makeup products. No matter how you perceive this concept, the thing that matters the most is that minimal makeup has taken the beauty world by storm, and we are pretty excited about it. If you consider yourself a makeup minimalist or about to turn into one, these 5 beauty tips will help to ease the entire process.
Use a tinted moisturizer or BB/CC cream
Minimal makeup is all about keeping the look natural and more skin-like. Foundations can give a fake and cakey appearance, and that will defeat the entire purpose. Therefore, you should stick to using a tinted moisturizer or BB/CC cream to create a nice and flawless base for products to follow. But before you apply BB cream to your face, make sure to use a hydrating primer to prep your skin for makeup application. Bb creams offer pretty great coverage, and it appears natural on the face.
One of the easiest ways to add oomph to your minimal makeup look is by wearing falsies. It not only helps to elevate your makeup game but also brightens your eyes and makes them look more enhanced. You can opt for soft, subtle falsies to add some volume and fullness to your natural lashes.
Go easy on eyeshadow
Just because we are aiming to create a no-makeup or minimal makeup look, it doesn’t mean you will have to steer clear of eyeshadows. But we are in no way suggesting to create a smokey eye, it just doesn’t go well with the minimal vibe. Instead of using loud or bold eyeshadow colors, you can use a brown shade that complements your skin tone to add some color to your lids. For a more defined look, you can wear black eyeliner, and it shouldn’t be thick.
Work on your brows
Your brows can make a huge difference to your makeup look; therefore, you should groom and shape them correctly to make them work favorably for your look. The first step is to brush your brows, and it’s a crucial step, so make sure you are not skipping or forgetting it. Merely brushing your brows make the entire makeup look more enhanced. Once you are done brushing your brows, fill in the patches and sparse areas in your brows using a brow pencil. Also, use a brow pencil that is one shade lighter than your natural brow color for a natural look.
Nude lips FTW
Save reds and other bright hues for important occasions and wear nude lips on regular days. It is one of the most important aspects of a no-makeup makeup look. You can either opt for muted tones of browns or mauves to complete the look. And if you don’t feel like wearing lipsticks, you can use a tinted lip balm for a natural look.
