The minimalist makeup approach has long been a fashion favourite; with dewy skin gracing the runway, fluffy brows splayed across editorial spreads, and nude lips dominating social media.
Shifting the focus on natural beauty, it’s a trend that not only suits all, but encourages self-confidence, and stays especially friendly to the time-poor.
This month, we’re ditching the heavy layers of foundation in favour of a fresh-faced, barely-there look.
For pointers, we’re turning to the lineup of treats packed in our Vogue x bellabox – curated in collaboration with the beauty powerhouse.
Save product, enjoy the longer sleep-in, and let your skin do the talking. Here are some quick tips to help you go filter-free.
Every beauty aficionado knows that flawless skin starts with good skincare. Prep the skin with a good moisturiser, based on your skin’s needs. Luckily, the Vogue x bellabox comes complete with a handful of hydrating products, packed for you to trial depending on your skin type.
A richer cream such as Thalgo’s Lifting Correcting Night Cream will suit anyone on the dehydrated side, boasting regeneration properties that will leave you with soft, plump skin.
Once your moisturiser has settled in, apply a hydrating primer to ensure that makeup application is smooth, keeping your glass skin look effortless. Bobbi Brown Vitamin Enriched Face Base is a holy grail for makeup artists, thanks to its rich-in-feel, oil-free formula that works wonders on all skin types. It doubles as a moisturiser, so you’ll never have to worry about flakiness again.
Massage the primer into the skin, followed by a small amount of concealer lightly dabbed over any spots (if necessary). Blend until you’ve reached a light to medium coverage.
If you want to up the ante, a touch of mascara will do the trick. La Roche-Posay's Respectissime Volume Mascara is perfect for achieving volume, or simply giving your lashes a light boost (Just apply gently.) With a formula that reduces rubbing and irritation, it’s suitable for contact lens-wearers and those with sensitive eyes.
Nothing finishes off a dewy look better than a hydrating mist; which is why Mavala Vitalizing Alpine Micro-Mist is a staple spray for all. A quick spritz of its hydrating formula will enrich your skin with antioxidant vitamin C, leaving you refreshed, radiant, and glowing.
