Minimal makeup for maximum results
Hands up if you’ve ever gone a bit overboard with your make-up? Come on, ‘fess up, I know you’re all guilty of it… And really, I don’t blame you. After all, with so many amazing products in our make-up bags, it’s hard not to get overexcited and go a bit OTT. But is it really necessary to put every product you own on your face, at the one time?
I mean, if you stop and think about it, is it ever the girl with the caked-on foundation, thick lipstick and super-heavy eye make-up whose look you want to rush to replicate? No, I bet it’s the girl with the naturally radiant skin and barely-there beauty look that gets you wishing you had a bit of whatever she’s got going.
Well it’s time to stop wishing, beauties, because we’re about to let you in on a little secret that will not only help you perfect that naturally beautiful make-up look, but it’ll also help improve your skin at the same time, too. The secret up our sleeve is L’Oreal Paris Nude Magique – a multi-tasking BB cream that’ll do more for your complexion than most of your make-up combined.
Thanks to smart pigment capsules within the formulation, Nude Magique comes out of the tube all pearly and white-like, but when applied to your face it adjusts to the tone of your skin creating a lightweight, flawless, even-toned finish (you can pretty much say goodbye to blotchiness and redness with this baby.) Plus, being a hard-working BB cream, it’ll also help to reduce the appearance of sunspots and imperfections, and illuminate your skin, leaving you with a natural, dewy glow.
Oh and did I mention that as well as all of these foundation-esque benefits, L’Oreal Paris Nude Magique simultaneously hydrates your skin for up to 24 hours, delivers a boost of antioxidants, and protects you from the sun’s harmful rays with SPF 12. So really, you’re getting the flawless finish of a foundation – minus a heavy look and feel – and the benefits of a skin care product all in one!
Top tips for becoming a minimal make-up master:
1.) Remember, a natural looking complexion is key so resist temptation to go overboard with foundations and powders. We think Nude Magique is ideal as it can be worn ultra-sheer, or built up if you like slightly more coverage, but either way it’ll never leave you looking like you’re caked in make-up.
2.) If you want to add a hint of colour, opt for a soft pink or muted peach blush to give you a subtle flush.
3.) Long, luscious lashes work wonders with this look, so go crazy with your lash curler and a slick of your favourite lash lengthening mascara.
4.) Stick to a neutral lip colour with a hint of shine to bring out the lush-factor in your lips.
