We love makeup. It sounds like a simple statement, but it is totally true! We absolutely positively love makeup, and we know that you do, too! But, sometimes we have days where we just want to let our skin breathe a little. For those of you that want an “off day” for your daily glam makeup routine, here are a few ways to embrace your natural beauty with sheer makeup!
1. The Tinted Moisturizer Stands Alone
One of the most popular minimalist makeup trends these days is using a tinted moisturizer to give your skin a little refresh, and walking out the door. You read that correctly! No blush, no bronzer, no eye makeup, nothing. While it may seem scary to leave the color totally out of your face, it can be really great for your skin to have nothing but a tinted moisturizer on (especially if it has SPF). We highly suggest this natural looking makeup trend! Don’t be afraid – you’ll still look just as beautiful!
2. The Anti-Lipstick Club
Just like many in the minimalist makeup fan club are boycotting heavy foundations, many natural makeup loving gals like having a layer of chapstick on their lips and nothing else. The pigmentation in many commercial lipsticks can be harmful to your peckers over time, and there is no better way to take care of them than keep them constantly hydrated! This is a sheer makeup trend we approve of.
3. The Eyeliner Only Squad
Once again, having only one product on your face has been a big trend in the minimalist makeup community! Many girls choose to skip the layers of foundation and other product all together and love having just a simple pop of eyeliner on their upper lids and waterline. It may seem like this is less sheer makeup and more psychotic, but we promise you that using just eyeliner can instantly change the look of your face!
Sheer Makeup Is All About Embracing Your Beauty
While we are totally in love with our drugstore beauty products and high-quality makeup brands alike, we think we might be ready to hop on the sheer makeup bandwagon. After all, letting your skin breathe is never a bad thing, and the minimalist makeup movement overall is about embracing your natural, beautiful face! What’s not to like?! If you’ve experienced with sheer makeup, tell us in the comments down below – did you like it? Do you think you’ll give yourself a few more makeup “off days”? Let us know!
