When it comes to makeup, I tend to go for minimal and natural looks. I’ve been wearing makeup less and less these days, but when I want to wear a little something I tend to reach for my go-to products that are easy to apply and perform well. Here’s five products I use to achieve a minimal makeup look:
Maybelline Dream Satin Liquid Foundation
I really like this Maybelline foundation because it’s lightweight and breathable. It’s also very natural-looking and doesn’t feel cakey at all, making it perfect for an everyday look. It provides a medium coverage, which I find is enough for me. If you tend to prefer full coverage, this may not be the foundation for you as it doesn’t cover everything. I love the fact that this gives you a lovely dewy glow without leaving you looking too shiny. An amazing foundation!
Maybelline Dream Brightening Creamy Concealer
Due to its super creamy texture, this crayon concealer glides on the skin easily and blends out very well. It provides good coverage and is great for covering dark circles underneath the eyes. As the formula contains light-reflecting pearls, it instantly illuminates the under eye area and leaves you looking awake and bright-eyed.
Billion Dollar Brows Eyebrow Powder
If you love natural-looking brows, this is the product for you. This brow powder is very easy to apply with its lightweight formula that goes on smoothly. It’s great for thickening and filling sparse brows. To apply the powder, I dab an angled brush into it and create soft strokes to define my brows. I then blend with a spoolie brush to complete the look.
Benefit They’re Real Mascara
Many people claim this product to be their favourite mascara and with good reason! This Benefit mascara really does do it all – it provides clump-free voluminous and long lashes. The thing I love the most about this product is that it’s long-lasting and doesn’t smudge or dry out. I found that it even survives Florida humidity and heat – which is amazing! It’s pretty hard to remove, but I can deal with that.
Maybelline Superstay 24 Liquid Lipstick
I switch between the lip products I own often, but this Maybelline product is one I’ve enjoyed using lately. It contains a liquid lipstick on one end and a moisturizing balm on the other. I love the fact that it lasts on the lips for a long time and gives great colour pay off. The only fault I have is that I find the liquid lipstick a tad on the dry side, even after having applied the moisturizing balm that comes with it. I still enjoy using it though as I really like the shade “Pinking of You,” a beautiful muted pink.
