I have to wear makeup for work since I'm a hairstylist/MUA so I like my routine to be 15 minutes or less <3 I do:


- Brows

- Light touches of concealer

- Blush (use a bit as eyeshadow too!)

- Highlighter

- Mascara

- Lip balm


Occasionally I'll do some really natural false lashes or thin liner too <3 I love thinking I'm some kind of glossier ad lmao

I'm trying to get into it! I think it's soo pretty and the ease of applying it is a plus as well. I love me some bright and colorful glam looks, but the glowy look is just so timeless.

I usually wear tinted sunscreen, mascara, and lip balm. I used to not be able to leave the house without spending at least an hour on hair and make up, but eventually you realize that lie is fleeting and you're not going to be young forever anyhow. Why bother wasting time on that bullshit?

Yes! Honestly just because I'm lazy and I don't find makeup as fun as I used to. I am, however, very dedicated to my skincare routine because then I don't feel like I need to cover my skin :) On the rare occasion that I'm going somewhere I will use face makeup and eyeshadow, but usually I just fill in my brows, apply mascara and maybe lip gloss.

I feel pretty when I wear minimal makeup. Mascara, concealer, and sometimes a little bit of highlighter

I'm not really into 'no makeup' makeup but I do like using less makeup as it's faster and more comfortable. I don't like corrective makeup, I usually only correct my dark circles and I like making the most out of a few products.

My daily makeup is a bright lipstick and brows. If I'm going out into the city or something, I add some concealer under my eyes, lip liner and mascara. Sometimes I add a little liner and smudge it with a brush.

I always use a silicon based sunscreen or vit c cream topped with regular sunscreen all over my skin! It acts like a primer and gives me a matte effect.

i've always been really interested in makeup, my mom used to buy those old-school urban decay special edition palettes that were like the size of a small textbook nd had like 30 random colors inside

so when the 2015-2016 instagram makeup trends came around (insane highlighter, brows, heavy eye looks) i was all about it lol...even though looking back it really did not suit my face ~BeaUtY~


nowadays i go very minimal, but i still like to have fun with my makeup so i'm typically wearing some type of subtle form of glitter on my eyes as an accent.

my routine is something like this:



-mac fixplus

-bareminerals foundation (and mineral veil if i feel i need the extra spf)

-lightly fill in brows w brow pencil and use colourpop tinted brow gel

-tonymoly panda dream eye brightener (the formula isnt my fav and it took me a while to learn how to use it but i'm using it up bc i cant return it)

-nars creamy concealer if i feel i need extra brightening under eyes/through midface (also not my fav formula but i'm using it)

-either no eyeliner or a gel liner lightly smudged along the lashline, sometimes i do a very muted cat eye liner with this, sometimes i do a liquid liner wing it just depends

-glittery gold shadow stick that i got from japanese brand dollywink like forever ago in inner corner, or i will use a shimmery shade from various palettes

-depending on where im going i will use covergirl waterproof mascara or tarte maneater (not my fav again lol why do i have so much makeup i dont like)

-nars multiple cream stick in orgasm on cheeks/as highlight/on cupids bow (a classic, looks so pretty on literally everyone and is so subtle and natural looking, plus nars' cream formula is the shit, it melts right into your skin)

-mac fixplus again


that seems like a LOT ik but if you could see what my makeup routine used to look it doesnt look like a lot on the face at all. it's not exactly no-makeup-makeup, but most people wouldn't guess how many products it took to create the look.


also, for anyone who likes glossier-type "natural pretty" brands, there are a lot of kbeauty brands who make more affordable dupes. just something to look into! :)

I literally have the most minimalistic boring makeup routine lol

Everyday I put on YSL Faux Cils Volume mascara and Nivea Milk & Honey lip balm

That’s it

My skin care/body care/hair care routine is like off the charts insane, I have multiple serums and moisturizers, different masks, essential oils, supplements and electronic devices for it.

Edit: not to even mention my incredibly expensive perfume obsession

I don't really wear any makeup. I just wear sunscreen and lip balm, and maybe some lip tint/lipstick.

You must have good skin then!

This is me too :) I know it's personal choice and to me I feel more authentic and relaxed without wearing much or any at all


Make up if I bother at all....

-Nyx eyebrow pencil (naturally applied, just lightly fill in couple gaps that are sparser)

-Lip balm

-Nyx concealor (for odd zit and under eye circles)


For face, I use CeraVe facial cleanser, lotion and zinc oxide sunscreen (some Amazon brand). Sometimes I'll splurge on a fancy Sephora cream... trying First Aid Beauty BarrierAIR and a collagen night cream sample right now which I'm enjoying

yeah definitely. Makeup makes my skin patchy and uneven. I've been using skin peels to help the blemishes and its going well. I also use castor oil on my eyebrows and lashes so I don't even need to fill them in if I don't want to. Not to sound conceded, but I know I'm a pretty girl. I think all girls are pretty and shouldn't feel the need to wear makeup .

Me ME ME, I feel you, I think I look WAY uglier with makeup. I think it accentuates my flaws and looks so fake and bazaar. I never wear makeup, I know I’m ugly and nothing can cover it up or make it better. Because it is what it is I can’t change genes

I do.. I don't really get the purpose of most make up products. Anything that doesn't go on the eyes or lips, seems pointless to me.
I only wear eyeliner... Sometimes mascara too but my lashes are almost inexistent so it's barely noticeable if i wear it, so i usually don't. I'd like to try fake lashes someday.
