Hey darlings, today's post is all about accentuating natural beauty with minimal makeup :-)
I don't know about you, but on a day to day basis when I'm off to work in the office I really don't feel like putting on much make-up, if any at all!
Even if you don't work I think this could still apply to all the busy moms and students out there!
Waking up at 6:30am in a bit of a rush isn't time to get creative with the makeup looks, for me personally at least. Makeup can feel great at the start of the day, but after a stressful day it's nice to just feel like your skin can breath and you can relax without having the burden of taking off a load of makeup.
However, that being said I do still like to do a few touch ups to look fresh and awake for the day! I thought I'd share a few of tips/minimal makeup look that I like to do on a day to day basis. I think this look is all about practicality and making the most of your natural beauty :-)
-Concealer is a must have! To cover those dark circles and imperfections on the face. As I don't wear foundation I find this step particularly important! I mainly like to conceal under the eyes to help me look fresh and well rested, however you can use the concealer wherever you need to depending on your skin.
-Blusher A touch of blush, perhaps highlighter if you are feeling a little dull. Adding some color to your face helps bring your skin to life. Applying Highlighter is also a quick easy step to help the skin look youthful and glowing with minimal effort.
-Lip color - I love to use a moisturizing lip stick or stain which will last a long time without having to be topped up. A personal favourite of mine is the MUA lip stick, not only is it a bargain at only £3 but the product is very moisturizing and last hours even after eating. I find it fades really nicely too, rather than leaving a ring around the outside of your lips like some lip products do.
-Brows This is of course optional but for me filling in my brows is a must! Brows shape your face and if like me you have fine hairs I find a touch of benefit gimme brow can really make a huge difference.
After a day at work I always find my eyes are tired and I don't like the feeling of having mascara and eye shadow to remove. So for me personally I won't normally wear any eye makeup at all. Of course this is all down to personal preference! I do wear glasses which I think can add a nice look to the eyes.
If you do want to brighten up your eyes slightly, adding a touch of highlighter on the brow bone and inner corners can do exactly this. If you are feeling extra tired a coat of mascara can also help to open up the eyes!
These simple quick steps can really help to give a fresh neat look without having to apply too much makeup. Having no foundation on really feels great too :-) especially when it gets to the end of the day!
Thanks so much for reading and I hope you found some of the suggestions useful. This is just what I like to do on a day to day basis and I know it may not work for everyone. As always if you have any tips please do share!
