Makeup Minimalist?!?!?

Mother's Day is only two days away! We get to go home (to our hometown) and spend all afternoon and night visiting with our family. Getting everyone together for a meal doesn't happen every weekend- we live about an hour away from the rest of our family. We are extremely close to our family- and always have been. Needless to say, we are super excited!

The big get-together is on Sunday, but our mother is coming to Memphis on Saturday for a lil' shopping trip. If you haven't already noticed, we love to shop! We get it from our momma. Growing up, every Saturday we would get up, watch Friends while eating Grandma's chex mix, then head out to all the sales and clearance racks in town! Ah, good memories!

One thing we don't get from our mother is our love for makeup. She has always worn very little makeup, if any, but she's recently shown more interest in wearing it. We promised her we would show her the ropes- take her to MAC or Sephora and get her a few things she might enjoy. This doesn't mean she's going to be a full blown addict like we are. She's very picky, and we know she'll still be very minimal with her application, so we have to choose her products carefully.

NARS Sheer Glow Foundation, Gobi 1 fl oz (30 ml)She protested at the time, but we have already set her up with Satin Taupe, Girlie, and a 217 brush.  We even had to show her how to apply! Next, we are going to try to find a light foundation that applies easily and doesn't feel too heavy. We are considering recommending Nars Sheer Glow, or even Neutrogena Healthy Skin foundation.

What do you recommend for a makeup minimalist?


  1. OMG you MUST get her the Dior lip glow color revival balm. I have gotten about 3 or 4 people faithfully addicted to it and 2 of them are minimalist one of them hates makeup! Its the perfect I'm not wearing makeup makeup product!

  2. Good idea, we'll have to check that out, Thanks!

  3. I would definitely recommend Nars sheer glow foundation for your mom. :) I was anti-foundation for a long time because I never found any that I liked and that didn't look fake or feel caky. I really like the natural look. But once I found Nars Sheer Glow I was hooked! It looks natural and feels like you have nothing on.
