What a bonus. Want some extra help to fine-tune your make-up routine? We’ve compiled a list of tips and products so you can become the ultimate make-up minimalist. Read on…


Do you remember when the world was introduced to CC creams? Cue one of the most innovative products to hit the make-up market and change the way we saw colour control forever. Just so you know, ‘CC’ also stands for ‘complexion corrector’ and gives a light to medium coverage once applied. It’s known mainly for evening out your skin tone though. If you want a superb but subtle cover-up, choose a CC cream as your base. They’re packed with beneficial ingredients for your skin, contain extra hydration properties and calm irritation.

Bronzers and blushers do so much for our complexion without all the time and effort. They add definition to the jawline and sculpt cheekbones after a sweep or two with a fluffy brush, giving a tired-looking complexion instant pep. Feel free to use the bronzer as an eyeshadow shade to give your eyes some gentle depth. You’ll love the simplicity of our tried-and-tested two-in-one bronzer-blush combo product below.

Never underestimate the power of a bold brow. Add colour and fullness to your brows with a brow mascara. Make sure you colour-match the product to your true brow colour to look as natural as possible. The wand helps with even application (don’t fuss over them being too perfect, brows are meant to be sisters, not twins, after all) and the comb replicates the look of slight hairs. Remember to let the formula dry properly to avoid smudging.

To enhance your lashes without the intensity of a black mascara, choose a brown formula instead. It’s an easy-to-wear, everyday make-up minimalist essential that’ll subtly make your eye colour pop without the hassle of possible panda eyes.


Nude, neutral, ‘barely there’ lips are a must to finish off your unfussy, effortless look. Stick to lipsticks with a creamy formula and satin finish to keep your pout moisturised with a slight pop of colour. If you want longer-lasting colour with more precision, try a nude lip liner.
