How To Master The Minimal Makeup Trend

Friday, September 21, 2018

After burning-red eyes and bold lips, natural minimal makeup is getting back in fashion. No wonder, since it’s something that everyone can pull off! Indeed, it can be achieved on all skin tones, face shapes, and facial features, so whatever your natural features – you can look amazing with the minimal makeup.

Here is how you can truly master this trend for either day look or the next big night out. Oh, and since it doesn’t require elaborate blending and contouring, this is actually a huge time saver. Being equally beautiful as before, but spending less time and effort to achieve this? Bingo!


Prepare Your Skin


Minimal makeup looks best on healthy, glowing skin. So to make sure that yours is the best it can be, apply any makeup only after you’ve finished your daily routine of cleansing, toning and moisturizing. And then give your skin some time – five to ten minutes – to absorb all the nutrients you’ve just given it.



Prime


Various makeup artists don’t agree on this one step, so we’ll leave it up to you to decide. Some say you shouldn’t skip applying a primer, that will hydrate your skin even more and cover up the imperfections you might have. Others disagree and advise primer to be used only underneath heavy makeup that needs to stay on for a whole day or night. Maybe your best bet for the minimal makeup is using a BB cream, an all-in-one product that even gives a light coverage.



Conceal, But Try Not to Cover


Makeup addicts will find this one step to be hard. And indeed, the point of the minimal makeup is to look nude and give that fresh skin effect – not to have a thick foundation. Use a concealer under the eye area and anywhere else you might need it, such as your forehead, chin or on the nose. On the other hand, if there are parts of your face that need more help than just a tap of a concealer, you might want to apply a lightweight foundation with an appropriate big brush. Try to use as little as possible.


Keep the Cheeks Natural


Of course, you want some blush; but don’t overdo it, the goal is to look as if you’ve just finished a sweaty workout (minus the sweat). Some suggest using a cream blush instead of a powder blusher, as its structure is more resistant to higher temperatures, and it’s also absorbed better into the skin. Others advise applying powder blushes in a sweeping motion that will give the skin just the right amount of color.


Keep Your Eyes Bare


Here comes the easy part: to keep eyes minimal, you just need a mascara. If you feel bare, you can add a light matte eyeshadow ranging from beige to peach colors. And if you truly want to minimize the products you are using for this look, or downsize the time needed from start to finish, you can always invest in good eyelash extensions that will give you the needed effect, but without applying mascara every time. Not to mention rubbing your eyes to remove it when you’d rather jump into bed!


Let It, Shine, Let It Shine


Of course, we’re talking about the highlight. This is the fun part! Spread a cream highlighter over your cheekbones, under your brow bone, to your cupid’s bow and the inner-corners of your eyes. If your skin tones are lighter, use a pearl highlighter; if you’re on the darker side of the spectrum, opt for bronze or gold highlighter. You’ll get a beautiful natural glow.



Don’t Forget the Brows


Brows can be the standout feature in the minimal makeup – make yours never go unnoticed. Clean them up and use the spoolie brush to set the hair in place. Then start filling them – but not with a pencil, because that will make them look too defined. Use the eyebrow gel or wax, and that will keep the brushed-brow look in place throughout the day and night.

 

Finish with the Lips


To finish off the whole look and make it perfect, apply a skin-toned matte nude lipstick. The best results you’ll get if you enhance your natural lip color with a nude lipstick that has a little hint of coral or pink. Other colors that can pass: peach, soft rose.

And here you go! You just created a “no makeup” makeup, and doesn’t it look so good?

Behind the Seams NYFW Edition with Glenroy March of D'Marsh Couture

In the spirit of New York Fashion Week, we have been working hard to bring you great content if you are not able to make it to the events. While doing our research on "Jamaican Designers at New York Fashion Week", we stumbled upon one name on the 1st Page of Google Search, Glenroy Marsh.


House of D’Marsh had its genesis in spring 2003 when designer Glenroy March launched his spring collection during Caribbean Fashion Week in Jamaica’s capital city, Kingston. This start gave rise to the pursuit of a passion by a talented Jamaican who would later go on to stun audiences not just locally but internationally.

Today, The Haute Lifestyle goes "Behind the Seams" with Glenroy Marsh, founder of D'Marsh Couture to learn all about his NYFW Collection.

Glenroy Marsh

    THL:  What is one life lesson you’ve learned thus far since establishing your Fashion brand?

     GLENROY: One valuable life lesson I’ve learned so far is … you have to know who you are and have your own identity.


    THL:  Tell us about the collection you will be presenting at New York Fashion Week?
GLENROY: This season is inspired by the land of my birth, Jamaica, its magical attractions and all the island has to offer, including our beautiful beaches, our breathtaking waterfalls, and our scrumptious cuisine which is something visitors find alluring from around the world year after year.

As a Jamaican growing up on the island, I have always been in awe of the natural beauty and our diverse culture and attractions. I believe this collection is timely and provides an opportunity to showcase this amazing beauty through Fashion.


THL:  What inspired this collection?
GLENROY:  Jamaica!

THL:  How do you prepare for an event like New York Fashion Week?
GLENROY: Firstly, I have to find the inspiration for the collection, then from there I begin to sketch. From there onwards I begin to put the full look together which includes makeup, hair, and accessories. The final thing is to find and secure a venue that fit the concept of the show. 


THL: For up and coming Designers, how does one get to present at NYFW ( is there a registration process, through an agent, through connections etc)
GLENROY: The official way is to be a member of the Council of Fashion Designers of America CFDA or be a part of a small fashion week show or do you own private show.  

    THL:  Where can we find the pieces from the Collection?
   GLENROY: The Collection is available. They are available on my online store at  www.dmarshcouture.com. If you in New York visit the Flagship store located at1190 Bedford Avenue Brooklyn, NY 11216 

    THL:  What can we expect from you in coming months?
GLENROY: I will be promoting this new collection, going to Chicago Fashion Week and I will also be traveling to St. Kitts to mentor Tailors to become Fashion Designers.
