For some, makeup can be therapeutic. Dedicating hours in the morning to paint your face is an enjoyable routine that let’s you relax and experiment with your look. However, that’s not always the case for girls who either has a tight schedule or who aren’t really into makeup. Luckily, there’s an array of products on the market that cater to people who love a good low-maintenance beauty.
Here’s a rundown of makeup essentials for the no-fuss girl who prefers a slap-and-dash kind of beauty process:
1. Priming Moisturizer by Glossier
There’s no better way to begin this low-maintenance beauty list than with Glossier. Much like actual painting, a primed canvas is key for a flawless makeup look. This priming moisturizer preps the skin for a smooth application ahead, while giving the skin the glow it needs. The anti-redness complex soothes and evens skin tone, leaving a dewy, balanced finish.
2. Renewed Hope In A Jar Skin Tint by Philosophy
Foundation isn’t always ideal, especially for a humid weather; one can’t be bothered to maintain a heavy layer on the face (oily-skinned ladies, I know you can relate!). However, Philosophy is blurring the lines between makeup and skincare with their Hope In A Jar Skin Tint. Essentially, it’s a tinted moisturizer that gives the illusion of a naturally flawless face–it acts like a foundation that isn’t thick nor heavy.
3. Living Luminizer by RMS Beauty
Highlighting is undeniably the most magical step in a makeup routine–a little dew to the skin brings life and creates a youthful radiance. If you’re worried about intense, patchy highlighters, this cream luminizer subtly illuminates the face and enhances its natural glow without looking too greasy or glittery.
4. Burt’s Bees Satin Lipstick
If you love an intense color but hate the dryness of matte lipsticks, Burt’s Bees came out with a hydrating lippie that comes with a full coverage color. The lipstick leaves a satin finish, and promises 8 hours of moisture.
