Simple + Minimal Makeup Routine

If you guys have been following me for a while, you guys know my love for easy beauty. While I am obsessed with makeup, I always try to make sure I focus on taking care of my skin first. The key to simple + minimal makeup is making sure your skin is on point. To tell you the truth, no matter how much foundation you apply to your skin it’s not going to look good if your skin is not in the best shape. 

When it comes to my makeup routine, I like to keep my looks very simple, easy, and to the point. I have been really obsessed with the Too Faced Born This Way Foundation. It’s a buildable medium to full coverage foundation and I love how it ENHANCES my skin and it does not look cakey. If I do not want to wear foundation, I like to apply Glossier Stretch Concealer all over my face for a little bit of coverage.

Since I have oily skin, I prefer to use translucent powders to set my makeup. Of course I love Laura Mercier translucent setting powder, but I have been testing out some others that are worth the hype. Maybelline is one of my favorite drugstore brands and I was so excited when they launched translucent powders last year! I like to use a lighter shade underneath the eyes and a darker shade for all over the face. 

Even though drugstore makeup is my favorite, I also like to indulge in luxury brands. I finally tried out some products from Dior Makeup. Even though this is advertised as a bronzer, since it’s too light for my skin I use the Dior Nude Air Tan powder as a bronzy blush. It gives a really nice glow to the skin and the powder is very lightweight. 

I like to finish off my look with a nude/mauve toned lip color and hands down the NARS Velvet lip pencils are my favorite. I will line my lips with MAC’s cork and add NARS Pink Brown in the center of my lips for the perfect nude lip look. 

What’s your go to makeup look? Minimal or full glam?
