When going outdoors, it may seem exciting to dress up and put a heavy eyeliner on. While wearing a full-glammed eyeshadow can be fun and appealing at times, there is nothing wrong with just sticking to a simple makeup routine. In fact, some makeup products cause acne cosmetica, making your skin more prone to break out. Other times, makeup products can make your skin extremely irritated and cause an uncomfortable reaction.
However, this does not mean that all makeup products will necessarily make your skin worse. Products that are, “hypoallergenic (they’re less likely to cause allergic reactions), non-comedogenic (they won’t block pores) and non-acnegenic (they won’t cause acne)” will leave your skin feeling dewy and fresh. Finding the right cosmetics can be amazing as not only will your skin thank you but you will too.
Steps of A Minimalistic Makeup Routine
When first starting out with your makeup routine, make sure to apply a sunscreen first. MDSUN’s Antioxidant UV Protector SPF50 has proven benefits of making your skin smooth while protecting it from UV rays. This sunscreen contains a variety of vitamins like Vitamin A (moisturizes the skin), Vitamin E (repairs skin’s health), and Vitamin C (fights against UV rays). Unlike most sunscreens, this sunscreen contains a transparent formula that will not interfere with tinted moisturizers, foundations, and etc..
Next, you can either grab a tinted moisturizer or concealer. Tinted moisturizers are not as heavy as foundations, and are usually designed to have SPF in them. Based on what your skin type is (oily, dry, combination) can determine what type of tinted moisturizer you want. If you’re not feeling a tinted moisturizer, you can go for a concealer instead. Concealers come in smaller packaging and are usually designed for removing small blemishes, dark spots, and pimples.
Instead of going for bolder eyebrows, you can either try to feather your brows with a spooly or a brow gel. Glossier’s brow gel is an example of how to achieve the perfect minimalistic look. A brow gel is something extremely quick and simple – it allows for an individual to shape their brows without needing to go in with an eyebrow pencil.
This part of the makeup routine really varies from person to person. You can either choose to wear a simple eyeliner, eyeshadow, or just mascara. For a minimalistic makeup routine, we recommend that the eyeliner should be just a clean line instead of a cat-eye look. The eyeshadow should be a warmer tone shade (preferably brown), while the mascara should be quick and effective.
Since it is summer time, we definitely recommend either adding a blush or bronzer. Blushes add a splash of color into your makeup routine, and make you look well-put together. While a bronzer, brings out your skin tone.
Lips complete the entire look of a minimalistic makeup routine. You can either pick a lipstick that is very close to your lip shade or a tinted chapstick.
So the next time you are out with your friends or ordering food for pick up, just remember that your makeup looks flawless and your skin does too!
