Hello hello hello!
Sharing this super fun collab with my girl Maria where we bring you our “no makeup” makeup.
I wanted to make this a little more in depth and helpful than just my typical quick makeup videos so I shared the “long version” and shortened it with some tips and tricks to make it even quicker and less products (thus making it more travel friendly!) I love love love how much makeup can change the way you look and feel and it’s truly such a relaxing thing to do.
It hasn’t been talked about too much, but lately I have been on the mend from a hospitalization. It’s taking me wayyyy too long to fully recover and EVERYTHING is hard to do these. Literally even breathing is painful. But that’s not the point- my point is that playing with makeup and products makes me calm, its fun and gets my mind off everything else that’s going on in my crazy life right now.
So hopefully you enjoy this cutie minimal makeup look and take some inspo from it. ;) Also don’t forget to check out Maria’s look!
Tips and Tricks to make it even more short and sweet!
Tip 1- you can absolutely cut down on the amount of product you are using. You’ll see here that I took out quite a bit of excess. You don’t need to use a hyaluronic serum. Use whatever facial moisturizer you have or pack with you. If nothing else, you can spray your face with your setting spray FIRST. I also took out my physicians formula butter bronzer. You can definitely leave this step in, and take out your highlighter and blush, but I personally think a small travel palette with the three compact shades is much better! I attached a few options for you down below.
Tip 2- Cut down on the brushes. I think your sponge is absolutely necessary. You can do all things with a sponge, and in all honesty, it works better with the tarte cc under eye color corrector than a brush does by farrrrr! Use one brush, and make it a medium sized brush like the one I have here. You can use it to add your bronzer, blush AND whatever colors your decide to your lid.
Extra: I left the cream bronzer because I think creams work better on dry skin with no product on it than powders but you can take that out as well!
Thanks everyone!! I hope you enjoyed and learned a few things. :) Happy day!
