A Minimal Case of the Blues

Makeup can often make or break an entire outfit. Deciding whether to apply more or less definitely depends on the occasion, and of course, how much time you are willing to spend on your entire makeup routine. Experimenting with colors like baby blue and pink through the use of only three products makes for a fast yet minimalistic routine.

“Less is more” is a common statement that is relevant when it comes to this look, however the few colors that are used do provide a much needed pop. The trend of using light blue and pink gives quite the innocent aesthetic, while bringing attention to beauty, rather than fashion.

A swipe of NYX baby blue eye pencil along the lower lash line makes facial features come to life more than the typical brown or black alternative. Bottom eyeliner is also less timely than top eyeliner, which is always a plus for those who find waking up extra early to get ready for the day to be an inconvenience. A coat of Maybelline Volum’ Express The Rocket black mascara adds a sense of boldness and an IT Cosmetics pink glossy lip stain then serves as the third and final touch. Drifting away from the ever-so-popular smokey eye trend to a sweet and brighter application is perfect for the summer months ahead. This look is for anyone who wants to spice up a basic outfit in only a few minutes.

This outfit pairs a simple white T-shirt with high-rise jean shorts. It is styled in a fairly plain manner, in order to keep the focus on makeup. Blue tinted aviators and a light pink cross body bag carry out the color theme to another level. Sneakers help to make the look comfortable and casual for summer activities, as well. Some days it’s fun to let your makeup drive your look, instead of your clothing.
