Natural Make Up | Must Haves

MAC Mocha, Balmi, Benefit Gimme Brow, Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer

Natural make up has never been my forte. I tend to pile on a load products all at once just to achieve a base that I would class as minimal. I stare in wonder at the five product face posts and I envy those who look absolutely flawless when they're just wearing a little powder and mascara. I, like many, don't have the confidence to go around bare faced, but over the last few years I have become a lover of lighter bases and less products on a regular basis. I have put together a few of my must have minimal make up products that I have collected over the last few months. 

Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer | £4.19 | Link | Infamous for it's lasting powder and high coverage, it is no wonder that this has become a staple in my make up bag. It conceals flaws and imperfections with just one swipe, perfect for when you want to hide those blemishes without the use of foundation. 

MAC Powder Blush - Mocha | £18 | Link | Described as a soft plum-pink, this shade is perfect for when you want to add a flush of colour to your cheeks and the matte finish doesn't cake or highlight any flaws. Even though this shade is easy to miss, it remains one of my all time favourites, a blush which I reach for whenever I'm in doubt. 

Benefit Gimme Brow | £17.50 | Link | Does anyone else feel naked without their brows filled in? I know I do, that's why this product remains a firm favourite of mine. This infamous brow gel, volumizes and tames unruly hairs, whilst adding a natural looking tint. Perfect for when you don't want to fill in your brows using a pencil, but still want them to have a defined arch and thickness. 

Balmi Cube Lip Balm - Strawberry | £4.99 | Link | SPF and UV protection are both important aspects to look for in a lip balm. If you're wanting to achieve a natural look, then what better way than to go naked on the lips. This lip balm is perfect for when you want smooth and nourished lips, without the need for excessive amounts of products. 

What are your minimal make up must haves?

  3. I'm intrigued about the Balmi lip balms. I've tried the EOS ones and wasn't a fan, even though people rave about them.

  4. My minimal makeup must-haves are definitely Maybelline lip liner "Sweet Pink" and The Body Shop All-in-one BB cream. Absolutely love both of them!
    MAC Mocha looks so pretty :)

    Love, Yana x

  5. Gimme Brow is great - I discovered it this year and it's my 'go to' brow product when I'm in a rush (which is always!!). Recently I have started to use Soap & Glory's Brow Archery though which I'm using when I have a bit more time on my hands as it's really good for getting a precision brow! x

  6. Hear so much about this concealer! Have to try xx

    lovely post

  7. Love the colour of the blush! I really should stop buying blusher though - kinda went a bit OTT last week lol. Great post :) x

  8. I really want the Collection concealer! I have heard so many good things! - A Beauty & Lifestyle Blog


  9. This blush looks like such a pretty shade!

  10. Don't you love finding hidden treasures in your beauty counter? Those overlooked shades that end being the most flattering? What about when it happens with clothes? That dress that you would have never looked twice at and that you only tried on because the sales assistant insisted? That becomes the star of your wardrobe!
