One of the reasons I love summer is because of minimal makeup, even during winter my everyday makeup routine would still be classed as minimal, but once summer is here it means I can get away with even less makeup and still look ok.
Now my idea of minimal make-up is completely different to others, because from reading other blogs it seems most people think 10 items of makeup is minimal when to me that’s what I’d wear for a night out. In the picture above (sorry it’s fuzzy I’m in an elevator with only 3 lights) I am wearing only 4 items of make-up. Yes 4 items! I’m really lucky that I’ve got good skin and have since I hit my twenties and therefore don’t need to use any base during the day other than blusher.
a = Mac plush lash mascara in black
b = Maybelline eyebrow pencil
c = Nivea hydro care lipbalm
d = Topshop cream blush in head over heels
e = Rimmel moisture renew lipstick in funtime fuchsia
f = Rimmel Kate Moss lipstick in 05
In the picture above I am wearing a+b+d+e and that is all.
Most days I wear a+b+c+d especially for work.
On super lazy days I wear a+c
I have to say I’m really fortunate to have really good skin and I think this is down to a good skincare routine, trying to eat healthy and drinking a fair amount of water, but also I was lead to believe growing up that I didn’t need that much makeup and it seems to have stuck with me.
How many items do you class as a minimal makeup routine?
