Our top five tips for minimal make up

In recent years, we have noticed the heavy-handed approach to make up application has been a consistent trend. We have been packing layer upon layer of makeup onto our faces, to the point where we wouldn’t have looked out of place on a night out with Ru Paul Charles…

After years of celebrminimal makeupity inspired trends of contouring, highlighting, strobing, baking and applying make up with all manner of random objects… cue summer 2017 and the welcome appearance of the minimal makeup trend.
We can almost hear our pores breathing a sigh of relief.
It’s time to strip it all back ladies and embrace a fresh-faced feel for summer.

Whether you are going au naturel to be on trend, detox your skin, or simply out of sheer laziness(let’s face it girls, we all have those days) we have our top 5 tips to create a fresh minimal face this season.

Tip 1 – Skin: Your skin is your canvas. To give you the absolute best result possible, ensure you have a fantastic, clean, fresh and hydrated base to start with by exfoliating, cleansing and moisturising regularly. Drink plenty of water and always ALWAYS remember to take off your makeup before heading to bed.

Tip 2 – Base: Embrace the ‘less is more’ approach. Ditch the foundation and consider a BB or CC cream. If going bare-faced is just too far out of your comfort zone try a mineral makeup powder. Concealer is your best friend for any problem areas, but keep it light and avoid caking it on….and don’t forget to blend!

Tip 3 – Eyes: We are going for natural, so put down the eyeliner and step away from the falsies! Keep the eye-shadow light and natural, and finish up with a slick of mascara – no spider lashes ladies… Brows should be tamed but not too overdone, try a clear or tinted brow gel to wrangle stray hairs and keep them looking groomed yet natural.

Tip 4 – Lips: A tinted lip balm should be a staple addition to any self-respecting woman’s handbag, and Is a perfect way to add a natural flush of colour whilst keeping your pout plumped and hydrated.

Tip 5 – Cheeks: Aim for a natural ‘flush’. A peach cream-blush will give you an understated pop of colour yet keep your skin dewy. A touch of highlighter to add to your radiance, and a dusting of bronzer on the high points of your face will give you a sun-kissed glow, and you’re good to go!
