Makeup Wars : Minimalistic Metals



This week's Makeup Wars is all about our favorite color right now. All last week, I wasn't into a specific color per se, but into a minimalistic metallic look. I've been leaning more towards perfecting my skin, blending a metallic highlight on to the top of my cheeks while keeping my eyes radiant and sometimes simple. Be it rose gold, ice-y lavender, or moonlight, I'm all about a light metallic shine that never looks oily.

She looks cray. Don't walk around like that.

Please don't go oily with the look. That Sephora graphic looks like a girl getting ready to sunbathe in the seventies. Glowing without looking slick will keep you from looking crazy IRL.

Check out my Minimalistic Metals looks from last week.

Monday: Minimal Metallics Werk Werk Werk Werk Werk Face //


I think I'm digging how youthful a barely there brow looks. Then add a matte, neutral lip and a bit of glow from Cover FX and the Pixi Beauty Glow and Bronze Palette + Maryam Maquillage. I purposely wanted my cheeks to be the focal point of this look. The glow is beautiful and not too shiny. I declare this look approved for work!

Anastasia Beverly Hills Tinted Brow Gel in Blonde, $22.00
Cover FX Custom Color Drops in Moonlight, $42.00+
Pixi Beauty Glow and Bronze Palette + Maryam Maquillage in Empress, $20.00
Pixi Beauty Get The Look Lip Palette + ItsJudyTime, $24.00
It Cosmetics Confidence in a Compact, Medium, $38.00

Wednesday: Minimal everything, with several products //
Wow, I really look like my Mom here! And I kind of like the muted brow. Thoughts?
A light touch all over equals a really natural look that's still pretty and far from made up and too shiny. It's my new go-to!

Pixi By Petra Hello Rose! $22.00, Target

It Cosmetics Confidence in a Compact, Medium, $38.00
Anastasia Beverly Hills Tinted Brow Gel in Blonde, $22.00

Friday: Smudged Eyes / Rose Gold Cheeks //


I kept my brows powdered but natural, used the rose gold blush duo for a very shiny cheek and opted for a metallic taupe lid with a dark blue liner. Skin glows bright from a golden highlighter without any contour. I added a glow booster under my foundation to really make my skin glow without looking shiny all over.
