5 Ways to Nail a Minimal Makeup Look
This wedding cum lockdown season has given rise to a number of interesting trends. From designer masks (more like a need of the hour) to virtual bashes, this season has seen it all! If you are a soon-to-be-bride who is gearing up to get hitched at home in an intimate setup or simply believe in celebrating minimal style, this blog is your perfect stop. While social media is brimming with posts on minimal makeup, at times conflicting and overwhelming too, we decided to take matters into our own hands and chalk out five basic tips to help you ace the minimal makeup look.
Here are five ways for you to begin with:
1. Skincare First
The first step to looking like a million bucks on your d-day is to have a great skin! This is irrespective of the kind of makeup you may choose, however, if you want to keep it subtle and breezy then the best way for you is to have a naturally glowing skin. This way you’ll have nothing to hide, cover or conceal. Your makeup then can only function so as to accentuate or highlight your features. Adopt a good skincare regime and follow it through. Having good skin should not be limited to special occasions alone, but rather a lifestyle choice.

2. Prioritize Bright, Not White
Your makeup should ideally help you look like the best version of yourself and not an unrecognizable entity altogether! Hence, remember to aim at looking radiant, glowing, fresh and pleasing irrespective of your skin type or complexion. There is much joy in looking like yourself on your life’s most momentous day than a thickly layered white mannequin. Embrace your beauty and let your makeup only accentuate that!

3. Opt for Cream-based Products
The benefits of choosing a cream-based makeup product are aplenty! For starters, they work well with almost all skin types unlike water and powder-based products that can cause drying and irritation, especially for sensitive skin types. Besides, their buildable coverage feels light and boasts of a natural glow finish. Additionally, they are more water-resistant which saves you from the fear of cracking makeup, smudged look and constant touch-ups!

4. Ditch Dark Palettes
When you’ve decided to go minimal on your big day, it’s time to bid adieu to those glaring, dark shades! Instead, opt for more pastel, light and subtle shades. You have the trending nude palettes to begin with. There are also an array of seasonal light colour palettes like spring/summer shades for grabs. The key is to go easy on the skin with ‘soft glam’.

5. Experiment with Eye Makeup
Minimal makeup look doesn’t mean you turn up with a bland face. The beauty lies in its art to carefully highlight your features without making it appear effortful. One way of getting it right is by emphasizing on the eye makeup. While you’ve chosen to tone it down overall, you can certainly go out there and experiment with shades, shimmers and textures to do up the eyes. You can also mix two shades to get your desired look. Add some bling to your look by acing this bit.
