Being Minimalistic!

If you have been reading my blog for a while now you would know that I love my makeup to be very basic and I prefer to cut it down just to the necessary products. Although saying that, I do love a good old red lip here and there! Also, I have started incorporating blush into my daily routine and I am loving it because it makes me look so happy and radiant (if you know what I mean!). So I decided to do a minimalistic look for you. Here are the products that I used:

1. Pond's White Beauty BB+ Cream : I start off by dotting this on my face and using a kind of circular patting motion as I feel it blends it the best. Read more on how I feel about this product here.

2. Rimmel Stay Matte Pressed Powder: I follow up by applying this powder with the Real Techniques Blush Brush. This is my holy grail powder. This might be my 5th or 6th one. It is just so perfect, it doesn't dry your skin or make you look white or cake up, What more does one want from a pressed powder!

3. Bourjois Blush in 34 Rose s'Or: As I said using a blush is the new addition to my routine, I am loving this one by Bourjois. It's not really hard to work with and gives you the most natural blush. I think this is my holy grail blush. I have had it for almost a year, but just couldn't get myself to use it (or I actually forgot I ever had it!). I use the Real Techniques Blush Brush here as well. I know, but it works with the powder and the blush.

4. L'oreal Super Liner: I love me a good winged liner. This one gives me almost a perfect one. I say almost perfect because I have a real serious love - hate relationship going on with this liner. Some days it would give me one of the perfect lined ones and the other days it would just be a painful chore to get this to work. Just me?

5. L'oreal Million Lashes Mascara: Everybody needs Mascara right? I just follow the liner with this mascara. I don't LOVE this one but I really like it! I am not just a fan of plastic mascara applicators.

6. Joan Collins Lipgloss in Too Hot to Handle: First, how cool is the name. I finish my look by applying this lipgloss which one of my aunt got for me from London. To be honest I had never heard about it before but then I looked it up and it seems quite popular in the UK. Coming to the point, this has the perfect colour I need for this look. It's pigmented but not in your face kind. I would describe the colour as the perfect subtle colour. The consistency is great, it doesn't make your lips sticky or dry and stays on a good amount of time as well.

Here is the finished look:

Let me know what you thought of the look. 

Also, are you a minimal girl like me or you love to go all out.
