Minimalistic | Nails + Makeup



As you can see from my Manicure Mondays, I barely wear just one shade, and if it’s in one shade, you know there’s a design. I never really wear nude colors unless I must. This is described as a “barely there pink.” I agree because I had to put a thousand coats on for it to be opaque. Okay, maybe it was three, but that’s still a lot to me!

Sticking with the theme of minimalistic, I’m going to show you my everyday, simple makeup.


My first step whenever I know I’m going outside is slapping on some SPF. My main concern is having a pretty good base since I have acne/acne scars (Foundation + concealer + powder only on the under eye area.) I like for my eyes to be defined yet natural with curled lashes. I always use my favorite coral/pink lipstick which goes great with my warm peach blush.

I don’t add liquid eye liner or highlight & contour on an everyday basis; only when I feel like I have time to make it nice.

  1. I’m seeing that you’ve hit pan with a powder πŸ™‚ but also love love love the nails! I love a nude colour. No pump for the L’Oreal true match foundation? I think with or without makeup your skin looks beautiful! xx
