Going minimal and effortless is the trend this year, be it be in beauty or fashion. Who wouldn’t prefer saving time and money and yet rock a very ‘in trend’ at the same time? Plus minimalism as the name speaks, gives us a very sophisticated feel, like the French girls. So if you want to go minimal on makeup whether it be for work, for a date or even for completing your chores, we have some tips for you:



1) Primer and Sunscreen

Skip the foundations and BB creams. It’s time for the primer to give you a natural yet smooth base. Primers also help in keeping the skin hydrated. Do not forget the sunscreen though – it is a well known fact how the harmful sun rays can trigger skin dryness and ageing.

2) Clear Mascara

When you want your eyelashes to look defined and yet don’t want your black mascara to smudge or ruin the bare look, opt for a clear mascara. It will not only separate your lashes, but will also give it a natural look.

We recommend: Maybelline New York Great Lash Clear Mascara for Lash and Brow



3) Brow Game

You have to make your brow game on point when you want a minimal look. Bold eyebrows will instantly make you look effortlessly chic. Create a thick and natural look with a brow pencil in a colour matching with your brows and there you go.

4) Nude lips

Nude lips are the epitome of sophistication. And as the French girl would, apply nude lipstick in the natural colour of your lips or go for one with pink undertones. Make sure the shade matches with your complexion, as it should not look too washed out on you.

5) Bronzer magic

Yes, the key is to go minimal but that doesn’t mean we can’t glow! Tap on a little bronzer on your cheekbones without using a foundation base. Trust us, the tinted glow will perfectly compliment your minimal look.

Now as a French girl would say, Allons-y! 😉
