The Bare Minimum Guide to Makeup

There are a few essentials in my makeup bag that I couldn't live without. It makes my lazy mornings simple and keeps me feeling light and fresh even when I don't have time for the entire routine. So, here's my bare minimum guide to makeup.

1. Bare Minerals Matte Power Foundation (Fairly Medium)

Typically, I like to stick to liquid foundations, but when I'm in a hurry, nothing beats dusting on a matte powder to cover up little imperfections and get me on my way.  This foundation has a nice light coverage and comes in 20 shades. Personally, I like how this foundation blends. It goes on better than most powders I've used, so I don't have to spend too much time blending.

2. Bare Minerals Mineral Veil (Original)

I had never used any kind of finishing powder before I tried this product, and now I'm hooked. I have lightly oily skin and even matte finish foundation doesn't eliminate all the shine over the course of the day. Ever since I started using this product, I have a matte finish all day and my makeup stays blended and in place much longer than if I forget to put it on. 

3. Too Faced Mascara

Wow. I LOVE this mascara. It's the one eye product that I prefer to always wear. This Too Faced mascara is the least clumpy out of all the brands I've tried. I applies so smoothly and keeps my eyelashes looking natural. 

4. Bare Minerals GenNude Matte Lip Color (Swag)

I first tried this color as a sample from Sephora. It's perfect for adding a little color to your lips and instead of being dry like most matte lipsticks, it goes on with a creamy, smooth texture and dries matte. It helps to apply really easily and it also has very full coverage which I wouldn't have expected.

5. Benefit Cosmetics Rockateur Rose Gold Blush

This is one hundred percent the prettiest color blush I have. It smells so pretty and it's not overly pigmented, so it is perfect for any look. It's definitely a must have in my makeup bag to add a little color to my cheeks and keep me from looking overly pale. Love. Love. Love.

That's all I've got in this Bare Minimum Guide to makeup. Obviously, everyone is different, but I 10/10 recommend these products. They're so helpful and none of them are outrageously expensive which is always a benefit. I hope you enjoyed this! Comment your bare minimum makeup essentials below, so I can hear all your favorites!
