Putting on red bold lips, shimmery shades and dangling earrings is all cool but haven’t we all had a time when we just want to go basic? Yes, that’s where the minimal makeup helps. When you want to skip your vibrant lipstick and choose the lightest lip shade and expect yourself to look more stunning, minimal makeup tricks help.
Minimal makeup has been winning hearts and ruling stages these days because it’s easy and classy. Also, when you choose minimal makeup you just spend on the essential maquillage.
On that note, here are the steps that can help you ace the minimal look:
1. For minimal face makeup
Minimal makeup is exactly what it sounds like: you use only what you need to complement your characteristics. When you go for a minimal makeup look, you don’t need to put a thick foundation or a layer of concealer on your face. You can easily go for all things minimal instead of putting on makeup on the entire face. Use a moisturizer from Maybelline or to get the glow as well as keep your skincare intact.
The next step is to use the Maybelline Fit Me Primer which will ensure your makeup remains smooth and intact all day. If you find moisturizer is not enough, choose Maybelline products such as Maybelline Fit Me foundation which is extremely lightweight and grants the perfect finish. Blend the foundation well on your skin and your makeup base is already done.
Note: Do not skip the Primer!
2. For the minimal lips
Going for minimal makeup, you can easily skip the red strong bold lipsticks and choose a less vibrant color. A strong red lip does not scream simplicity, but a slick neutral lipstick does. The Maybelline Superstay Matte Ink Crayon lipstick is perfect for minimalists as it comes in various shades. Go for the nude shades from Maybelline lipsticks. With a no-makeup look, you may get a light touch of color. If you are not really in a mood to go for lipsticks, choosing Lip balms that add color to your lips is also a great idea. The Maybelline New York Sensational Liquid Matte Mini is yet another go-to choice for minimal makeup lovers.
Note: It’s wise to prepare your lips before applying lipstick or lip crayon. Exfoliate your lips first with a scrub to guarantee your lipstick or stain goes on easily. A lip scrub exfoliates your skin and lips gently yet effectively. Also, it’s super easy to apply. Apply a tiny quantity to dry lips, then gently massage with damp fingertips over your pout. Thoroughly rinse with lukewarm water and pat dry.
3. For minimal eye makeup
Minimal eye makeup is all about putting on the light hues and keeping it all cool. If you’re looking for a more minimalist look, do not select the bold and vivid eye shadow colours. Bring neutral hues, such as the Maybelline New York The Blushed Nudes Palette Eyeshadow that has all the nude shades. Blend a little amount of neutral eye shadow into your crease, then line your eyes with brown eyeliner. Draw a small line on your upper lid, then tightline your waterline with a brown eyeliner.
The last step is to apply a coat of black mascara, such as the Maybelline New York Lash Sensational Waterproof Mascara to complete your minimal eye makeup look.
Put on nude eyeshadow, a tint of kajal(you can skip if you want to) and mascara to complete your minimal eye look.
