my minimal makeup

Sometimes we have to go for a minimal makeup look for many reasons…  Sometimes we may be short on time.  While other times we may just not feel like spending a huge amount of time on the application process.  Then the question arises…  What in minimal makeup?  Well, what some may consider minimal others may think is a lot.  So, this is my take on minimal makeup on days I wish to look fresh and put together without dedicating a huge amount of time to applying it.

.PRIMER…  Nivea Men Sensitive Post Shave Balm.

CONCEALER…  This product is creamy and easy to blend.  I usually want the skin on my face to look as flawless at possible.  To get this done I grab for my LA GIRL green LA Colors Pro Cover Up Concealer Stick.  I put the green concealer anywhere there is a problem with redness.

CONCEALER…  LA COLOR pro concealer.  I apply this product to my major problem areas which are the large part under my eyes, nose and eyelids with a light hand.

POWER…  Physicians Formula Powder Palette Multi-Colored Face Powder Translucent…  Next I will want a good translucent face power.  I’ve been using this powder forever.  I want something that not only sets the concealer but also has some coverage.  No foundation will used for this look.

SHADOW…  For the ‘transition’ shade I like to use the NYC bronzer.  And for the lid color I like any type of ‘nude’ shimmery shade.

MASCARA…  I’ve been wearing this mascara well over 15 years.  It’s great stuff and I always go back to it.  L’Oréal Voluminous Carbon Black Volume Building Mascara (waterproof).  I never wear any mascara except waterproof.

EYELASH CURLER…  Revlon

LIPS

LIP LINER…  Miliani Color Statement lipliner in ‘spice’  This lipliner is supposed to be a dupe for MAC ‘spice’ lipliner.  If it is a dupe or not I love this lipliner and have a backup.  This color looks great with so many pink, mauve and brown shades of lipstick!
