Everyone loves to combine minimal styling with a few glam touches. The result is an easy to wear, clean, chic, and, timeless look. Less is more in this case. It doesn't matter if you put one glam item on or you go full glam - the key is to find your own way to make it your personal style. You can trust that every single of these 5 steps is easy as pie and with them, you will nail the minimal glam look in no time.
Apply some translucent powder.
To keep your makeup in place, start by applying a translucent powder to your face. This helps to reduce shine and keeps the foundation in place throughout the day. If you're using a compact, lightly tap it against the back of your hand before opening it up so that the powder doesn't fly everywhere as soon as you open it. Once you've opened up your compact, use a large makeup brush to apply it evenly across your face.
Always use an eyeshadow primer.
If you want your eyeshadow to last all day, then invest in an eyeshadow primer. It's the best way to make sure your color stays put and doesn't crease. Using an eye primer will also help keep the pigmentation of your shadow as bright and vibrant as it was when you first applied it.
If you're not sure what kind of primer to use, there are two main types: cream and powder. Cream primers are typically more expensive than their powder counterparts but require less blending once on the skin because they have a drier texture (unlike a liquid formula).
The best time to apply primer is after moisturizing but before foundation or concealer so that you can get maximum coverage from this one step!
Use a matte brown eyeshadow.
The next step is to apply a matte brown eyeshadow to the lid. Matte shades are great for anyone looking to subtly accentuate their eyes without drawing attention to wrinkles or other imperfections. The best part about using a matte brown? It looks good on just about everyone!
An angled brush makes it easy to create clean lines along my lash line that are perfect for winged eyeliner. After applying base color all over the lid area with this brush, use another brush that has shorter bristles so you can get into those tight spots around the inner corner of the eye for more definition when adding liner later on in these steps.
Use a volumizing mascara.
You’re looking for a mascara that will add volume to your lashes, while also adding length and curl. One that helps to lift, separate, and open up the eyes is what you want. The best volumizing mascaras have a brush with lots of bristles that are tightly packed together, which allows for more product on each lash as it coats them. This means more intensity and drama for your lashes!
Grab a lip liner and fill it in!
Use a lip liner to create the perfect line for your lipstick. This will make sure you have a nice clean outline, so the lipstick doesn’t bleed or feather outwards. It also helps if you have small lips as it makes them look more defined and plump.
If you accidentally mess up with your lipstick on the outer corners of your mouth, use a lip liner to fill in that area and create an even finish! This way, no one will be able to tell that there used to be a mistake there!
If you want your bold color choice not to get all over everything else around it (like maybe that cute white shirt), then use some long-wear liquid eyeliner first before applying any other makeup products onto yourself - especially eye shadow! This is because dark colors tend not only to fade faster but also bleed into each other when applied together at once - thus creating an unsightly mess that may not come off easily either...
Achieving that perfect minimal glam look is easy!
To achieve that minimal glam look, you have to be sure to keep your eyeshadow simple. You don't want to make the mistake of using too much pigment and overdoing it. It's also important not to forget about setting your makeup with a powder or setting spray. This will help ensure that everything stays where it should and doesn't crease throughout the day.
You don't have to spend a lot of money to achieve a polished, elegant look in your home. You can create a look that feels both minimal and glamorous by following these five simple steps. The whole point of this look is to be effortless, so have fun and enjoy the simplicity of it.
