FASHION TREND INSPIRED MAKE UP: MINIMALIST AND GOLD

AN IDEA FOR THE MINIMALIST TREND. MORE TO COME IN FUTURE POSTS.

I USED BOBBI BROWNS POT ROUGE FOR THE LIPS AND LINED MINE WITH MAC'S SPICE LIP LINER.

I ALSO USED A MATTE WHITE E/S FROM THE SAME SMASH BOX PALETTE FOR MY BROW BONE.

APPLY ONE COAT OF RIMMEL GLAM EYES MASCARA OF THE UPPER AND LOWER LASHES. COMB THROUGH AND REAPPLY.

I USED A MATTE BROWN SHADE FROM MY BEAUTY A GO GO PALETTE FROM SMASH BOX TO CONTOUR THE CREASE.

I USED MAC'S PIGMENT IN FOOL'S GOLD ALL OVER MY LIDS WITH A MAC 239 BRUSH.

FOR THIS LOOK, I MADE MY BROWS FULLER.

JUST TO SHOW YOU THE EFFECT OF THE ILLUMINATOR AND THE HIGHLIGHTING POWDER.

EXCUSE THE BATTERIES IN MY HAIR BUT WAS ALSO PREPARING FOR HUNNY'S RETURN, THUS THE VELCRO ROLLERS. HEHEHE

START WITH AN AMAZING BASE. FOR A LOOK THAT IS THIS MINIMAL, HAVING A GREAT BASE IS IMPORTANT.
I WANTED IT TO LOOK EXTREMELY NATURAL. I USED INGLOT'S AMC FOUNDATION.

I APPLIED INGLOT'S ILLUMINATOR ON THE PLANES OF MY CHEEKS, BRIDGE OF MY NOSE.
TO SET MY FACE WITH INGLOT'S AMC POWDER.

TO FURTHER ENHANCE THE GLOW, I APPLIED INGLOT'S AMC HIGHLIGHTING POWDER ON THE AREAS WHERE I APPLIED THE ILLUMINATOR.


Minimalism and Gold are two of the fashion trends that I will certainly follow this coming season. However, aside from clothes, it has also inspired me to create a look to wear with this fashion trend.
