My Minimal Makeup Routine

Minimal Makeup Routine

Hi guys! I don’t know about you but when the weather warms up, I don’t wear a lot of makeup on the weekends. Between going for hikes and spending time at the cottage, I tend to go very minimal. With that said, I do still put a little bit of makeup on most of the time. So, let’s take a closer look at what makes the cut for this minimal makeup routine!

It Cosmetics | CC Cream

It Cosmetics CC Cream

What I like about the It Cosmetics CC Cream is that it has SPF and lightly evens out my skin tone. It’s great for quickly applying to the face when you feel like you want just a hint of coverage. I don’t want to get too much into this product as I plan on doing a review shortly, but aside from this type of usage, I don’t like it as an every day foundation. If I’m wearing any other makeup with this (blush, etc) it ends up looking very patchy throughout the day if it gets warm out (this could be due to my oily skin type). Giant areas will completely disappear so if you’re wearing anything else it’s super noticeable. If you’re wearing this on it’s own with a powder to set it, it wouldn’t be as noticeable so that is why I like it only for my minimal routine. Continue reading

Quick Out & About Makeup Look

Hi guys! Today I thought I would share with you a quick out & about makeup look I did yesterday before going out to run errands. If I don’t have a lot of time, I usually just go out without any makeup on, but sometimes I prefer looking a bit more polished. Particularly since I live in a small city so when I go out to run errands, I’m bound to run into at least a few people that I know.
