What is your every-day minimalist makeup routine?

hey everyone, tell me about your every day routine, what you put on, how long it takes, and the tones you like. For me, every morning I put on sunblock and on the occasional day, moisturizer. I then apply a bit of blush on my cheeks and nose, with some lip liner towards the inside rim of my lips for the subtle ombre look and some gloss on top. I curl my lashes and BAM i'm done, only took me 5 minutes and it suits me well. Share some looks with me if you have the time!!  Kaja Cheeky Stamp Blendable Blush 04 Feisty

all I do is every morning after I wash my face and moisturize, is put on mascara then some lip balm and lip gloss and curl my lashes and I'm done. This whole routine only takes me like ten minutes, just because I'm slow lol. Too Faced Better Than Sex Volumizing Mascara Standard Size Black - 0.27 oz/ 8 mL SEPHORA COLLECTION LashCraft Eyelash Primer 0.3 oz/ 9 mL

Re: What is your every-day minimalist makeup routine?

I love simple makeup, basically just enhancing my own features is all.

-Milk Makeup Sunshine Skin Tint or just the Supergoop Invisible Shield 

-Glossier Stretch Concealer under my eyes

-Hoola Bronzer by Benefit(though I really want the new Tarte bronzer)

-Milk Makeup Lip + Cheek stick 

-Elf Makeup Clear Brow Gel

-Shiseido Eyelash Curler + Marc Jacobs Mascara= WONDERS, especially if you're half Asian like me;)

-Glossier Highlight Stick to top it all off!

 

I personally think it is very important to let my skin breathe so I normally do this when I see people or feel like I want to do my makeup that day. 

Re: What is your every-day minimalist makeup routine?

For my everyday look, I use my spf moisturizer and then the elf putty primer as my base.

Here are the next steps:

  • Make Up For Ever Matte Velvet Skin Blurring Powder Foundation
  • Chocolate Soleil Bronzer
  • Blush (whatever shade that appeals to me on that day... I like to switch it up)
  • MAC soft and gentle highlight
  • Urban Decay pencil liner in Bourbon (Goreous everyday colour)
  • Mascara

This whole process takes me 7 minutes max!! My skin looks flawless all day!!!

 

Re: What is your every-day minimalist makeup routine?

I usually wear...

Glossier boy brow in clear just to brush up my eyebrows

Glossier Lidstar in Moon

Curl my lashes

Glossier lash slick mascara

Pat on Glossier stretch concealer under ears

Either Fenty highlighting stick or Glossier nightshade highlighter

Since my skin cleared up, I haven't worn powder, but when I do set my makeup, I use the Laura Mercier translucent setting powder

When I go out, I use my Fenty cheek hugging brush to put on Becca sunlit bronzer

 

RE: What is your every-day minimalist makeup routine?

It really depends on the type of day or activities I have that would dictate my makeup look/routine. On a normal day, I don’t wear makeup - only because I’m lazy. But if it was a special occasion, I would put on a medium coverage face powder, eyebrows, mascara, highlight, and SOMETIMES lashes. I’m a minimalistic person and try not to wear so much makeup because I hate having to remove it at the end of the day when I’m the most tired. But yeah that’s basically an idea of my makeup routine.

Re: What is your every-day minimalist makeup routine?

Morning:

 

  1. Clinique City Block Sheer Oil-Free Face Protector because it's both sunscreen and a tinted moisturizer... super multi-tasker.
  2. Tatcha The Pearl to brighten up eyes and sometimes other places.
  3. For both lips and cheeks, Bobbi Brown Crushed Lip Color in Ruby
  4. Eyes - Origins Ginzing Mascara or L'Oreal Lash Paradise

 

In the evening, I'd add Marc Jacobs Highliner Gel Eye Crayon in Earthquake Brown, because it glides on SUPER smooth and can blend up for a simple smokey eye.

Re: What is your every-day minimalist makeup routine?

Does it feel sticky using a lipstick on your cheek? I use benetint stain on both my cheeks and lips 

Re: What is your every-day minimalist makeup routine?

I use lipstick as blush, and it works very well. Try it with the Bobbi Brown Crushed Lip Color in Ruby... I swipe it on the back of my hand and then use either a blush brush or my middle finger to apply to my cheeks. I haven't found it to be sticky at all. 

 

BOBBI BROWN - Crushed Lip Color

What is your every-day minimalist makeup routine?

I use concealer, powder, eyeliner, mascara and sometimes I use a liquid eyeshadow. I use to have a lipstick that made my lips shine but also look like my natural lip color but I used it up and I'm looking for another one.

Re: What is your every-day minimalist makeup routine?

I am opposite of most, wearing less makeup when I work and going all or nothing on my days off. Days off depend on if I'm leaving the house or not and also if I got something new to play with. 

 

On work days for a quick 5 minute "make me look un-dead" routine I generally do a a sweep of single shadow, blush, lash curl and eyebrows. Sometimes I'll do a glow primer/tinted moisturizer mixed together and add mascara also.

  • I wash my face in the shower. The rest of this routine takes 5-7 minutes (unless I use an eye mask).
  • The "minimal but in public:" tinted brow gel, undereye concealer, curled lashes, mascara, lip balm.
  • The "minimal but rosacea-correcting" look: swap in a lipstick and redness treatment.
  • The "minimal but work-appropriate": add in a single shadow, liner, and a light-coverage powder foundation.
