The How To – Minimalist Makeup

Hey guys!

So I was on my way to Tesco to pick up some ingredients to make homemade Chipotle style bowls, (would this be something anyone would want a recipe on? Let me know!), and I just felt like putting on some makeup. As I’d been slap free all day, I just kinda felt like making a bit of an effort!

I was so happy with the result that I decided to show you all how I got it!


First, I quickly smeared on some of my Seventeen makeup CC cream. A more detailed review of this is on its way, because I can’t quite make up my mind yet on this product…

I then evened out my skin tone a little more with my Maybelline Age Rewind concealer, brushed through my eyebrows with a spooly, and dabbed on the smallest amount of ‘accept’, from Makeup revolution’s Affirmation palette. Guys, this is the best damn palette I’ve ever had.


I used the tiniest bit of mascara, concentrating on my roots and the outer edges of my lashes because I wanted a really subtle look.

For the cheeks, I applied this mauve/pink blush from the Golden Sugar palette. I was so surprised with how this turned out – when I swatched it, it looked the least pigmented out of all 8, but when I used it on my cheeks it was AMAZING! I then applied the smallest amount of the lighter bronzer on my cheekbones.


I outlined my lips using ‘The One’ lipliner, again from makeup revolution, and went over with MUA’s lipstick in ‘Bare’. Previously I would never had worn a nude this pale, but with the liner underneath I love the combination and will definitely be reaching for it more!

For hair I just slicked it into a high bun because it was pretty dirty, and that was it! It took me about 5 minutes and I was so happy with the result – perfect for a summer evening!

shout out to my boyfriend in the back haha!

What do you guys think?

Much Love

  1. Hey 🙂

    Oh wow, such a lovely ‘no-makeup makeup’ look! 😀
    That lip combo looks so incredible! I’ve been searching for a nude that won’t make me look like I’m dead but won’t be too pink either and I’m pretty sure that’s the one!

    Great post!


    1. Thank you! It’s only a pound so I would definitely recommend trying it, I’ve had the same nude struggle forever! Putting a lip liner under definitely has helped me, especially as my lips are pretty pink naturally! Xoxo

  2. I love the natural look! The eyeshadow palette is so gorgeous.
    Am excited to hear about the CC cream review, since I’m a huge fan of BB/CC creams. 🙂
