i love minimal but bold pops of eyeliner, like just a stroke of colored liner or glitter or something. i hate lipstick because of all the touching up throughout the days and i would rather have people focus on my eyes. glossier is my shit i love it

I used to do full face everyday. Up until covid forced me to work way less. And now I just don't see the point of getting ready for work when I'll come home in 5 hours and have to take it off. Its actually really nice. I just use vitamin c serum, fill in my brows and curl my lashes. And what time I save early in the day I use to exercise and stretch. Feels very nice.

Yah, I just do bb cream+foundation now bc I'm insecure about my skin. Before I would at least do my eyebrows too but now it's just down to making my skin look a bit nicer.

I do occasionally go more natural, but find I always want a thin layer of foundation, just to somewhat correct the colour variations in my skin (which I then correct with a little bit of contouring and bronzing.  And I have to do my brows and mascara at the very least.  My brows just aren't cute without a bit of shaping.  Yeah....I guess I'm not so minimal lol


I never put anything on my lips because I hate the way it feels.

I only wear eyebrow shadow sometimes, sometimes I don’t if I think my eyebrows look pretty fine. If there’s redness on my skin, I just wait for it to be gone ?? Also not wearing mascara even though I am self-conscious about my short and almost invisible eyelashes.
I feel being myself when I don’t wear makeup. I love it.

Yes! I do a little bb cream and setting powder, some blush (don't want to look like a corpse hehe), a neutral eyeshadow, mascara, sometimes brow gel, and lipstick or lip balm. I do my face lightly because I like to wear red lipstick :)

Absolutely! I stopped wearing any kind of foundation or BB cream on my face, as well as concealer. I don't even wear mascara anymore. My makeup routine is just clear brow gel, Chanel baume essentiel multi-use glow stick over my eyelids and upper cheekbones, and Chantecaille blush

yes! i've never liked the way i look in heavy makeup and tbh i cba to purchase makeup and spend time doing it every day. 


i used to wear full face concealer / foundation in highschool and it tore up my skin so i refuse to wear anything full coverage like that anymore. 


i use black mascara and clear brow gel daily


sometimes a little bit of glossier highlighter / lip tint if i'm actually going out and not just running errands

I don't wear anything except vaseline on my lips and eyelashes. I'm pretty lucky to have my lips usually be dark naturally and my lashes be dark brown (I'm a dirty blonde.) I have a lot of respect for those that are good at makeup and take time to do it, and am always up for a makeover.

I barely ever have time to do makeup, but when I do it's always minimal and I love it! Generally I just contour my nose, darken my eyebrows, and apple a tiny touch of mascara. Sometimes if I break out I'll add concealer, but generally I'm too lazy to do that lol

I'm all for minimalism in general, and I'm not using anything at the moment. My eyeliner is tattooed on (semi-permanent makeup) and I use castor oil every other day for lashes and eyebrows (but for growth/health, not looks). Haven't used lipstick since the beginning of the quarantine, and not really looking forward to it :P pretty happy with my fresh face atm

my skin looks terrible, but i’ve found that foundation makes my skin even worse so i just stopped bothering with it (in addition to having a weird skin tone, and the only brands i can find that match are expensive as hell). i wore a bb cream for a while that’s supposed to help with acne, which was pretty cheap but i just don’t like how it makes my face feel.

thankfully when i do wear makeup, i just look kind of dead and my skin looking fucky adds to the corpse aesthetic, so i don’t have to bother with heavy shit anymore. usually i just wear mascara and maybe a lip gloss or eyeshadow if i’m in the mood for it. i’ll still wear a full face of makeup if i’m getting my picture taken or if i need to look ‘formal’ but that’s about it.

I like to apply powder, light (brown/red usually) eyeshadows, a bit of mascara and highlighter. If I'm not wearing a mask I use a bit of liptint.
Is this considered minimal? It looks pretty natural but I feel like there are too many steps.

I very rarely wear more than just mascara nd some black/grey eyeshadow. I do put on lots of shimmer powder and glitter though so I dont know if that would count as minimal lol
