Minimal Makeup

Given that January see’s us all hiding away like hermits, it’s not really surprising that the number of minimal makeup videos that are published sky rockets. They leave the extra twenty minutes in bed on those dark mornings and require minimal touch ups throughout the day.

    I've been doing similar makeup lately.
    I do a tiny bit more to my eyes, just because I love eye shadow, but I have still been working on a good minimalist look for me πŸ™‚

    I love minimal makeup, some people use loads of products because they think thats what wearing makeup is and not really, if we dont need it why over use it?? Minimal makeup should be everyday makeup for people that dont need to cover imperfections or such, maybe go a little strong for the night but this look should be s normal and standard makeup tutorial I feel. Love it!

    Love this look! I might have to pick up that mascara, as I feel like I shouldn't be using my YSL for my everyday looks!

    I used to use mac studio fix but it broke me out too often to keep it up. I loved dior's but they changed the formula again!

    I love a minimal makeup look all year round. Unfortunately for my job I don't get to dress up or wear lots of makeup so I love these sorts of videos for product idea. You featured two of my favourites love the Origins moisturiser and NARS concealer πŸ™‚
