With so many lightweight, sheer and multitasking products to choose from, it’s easier than ever to get in on the minimalist trend. Shop our favorites below.
NYX Professional Makeup Bare With Me Luminous Tinted Skin Serum
This gorgeous tinted skin serum is perfect for days when you want to even out your complexion while still allowing your skin to shine through. Squeeze a few drops of the hydrating, dewy formula onto your fingertips and work it into your skin like you would a moisturizer.
L’Oréal Paris True Match Eye Cream In A Concealer
This concealer and eye cream hybrid can help you fake a good night's sleep. It boasts sheer yet buildable coverage and contains hyaluronic acid to hydrate. If you’re looking to lightly camouflage dark circles this pick has your name all over it.
YSL Beauty Rouge Volupté Shine Lipstick Balm
Tinted lip balms are the perfect go-to lippie for adding color, shine and definition to your lips without leaning heavy or bold. This YSL formula is ultra-smooth and nourishing, plus it comes in a large variety of natural shades to choose from.
Maybelline New York Lash Sensational Sky High Mascara
No no-makeup makeup look is complete without a coat of lengthening mascara. This beloved mascara is perfect for defining and separating the lashes and giving you a more awake appearance.
EM Cosmetics Color Drops Serum Blush
Dewy, glassy blush has been trending for a while now and it’s easy to understand why — luminous, flushed cheeks can take any makeup look to the next level. These blushes combine the hydration benefits of skincare with the color and finish of makeup all wrapped up into one adorable glass bottle. Apply one or two drops to your cheeks with your fingers or a brush and you’ll be left with a fresh, flushed look.
Tower 28 SuperDew Highlighter Balm
This translucent skin balm — which can be applied to clean skin or on top of makeup — was practically made for the skinimalism trend. Perfect for all skin types and tones, it adds a hit of luminosity to your complexion without shimmer or glitter.
KOSAS Cloud Set Setting Powder
Powder can get a bad rap for making the skin look dry or cakey, but this option does nothing of the sort. While we hate to admit it, there is such a thing as being so dewy that the skin just looks greasy. To ensure your makeup doesn’t enter into this territory, apply a thin layer of this weightless, baked powder to any areas where you want to combat excess shine.
