Top Picks for Makeup Minimalists
If you’re more of a minimalist with a calm, neutral vibe, here are our top picks for a quick routine with minimal products.
The Smashbox Always On Cream Eyeshadows have the perfect on-the-go creamy eyeshadow formula because they can be applied with your finger and are easy to blend. These completely smudge-proof shadows come in a variety of neutral shades for a quick no-makeup makeup look. Feeling creative? You can mix the shades for a custom color of your own!
When it comes to a "less is more" beauty routine, a hydrating, go-to gloss is an easy quick pick-me-up. For a subtle wash of color, we love the vegan, cruelty-free and CBD-infused Saint Jane Luxury Lip Shine. The shades Cloud and Tonic are the best-selling sheer, non-shimmer formulas, and Mystic is perfect for a deeper plum shade.
Finally, check out Jillian Dempsey for the ultimate no-fuss beauty routine. The Cheek Tints and Lid Tints provide a dewy wash of color for an effortless look, and they contain skin loving ingredients and antioxidants to help improve your skin with each wear.
Explore beautiful colors from Danessa Myricks and Lethal Cosmetics. Palettes featured include the Danessa Myricks Beauty Dew it Flirty Dewy Lip & Cheek Palete and a custom Lethal Cosmetics palette.
Top Picks for Colorful & Multi-Tasking Makeup Lovers
We couldn't create a blog about makeup without including some of our favorite Danessa Myricks products! Her Allure Best of Beauty award-winning, multi-purpose ColorFix is a pro favorite because it can be used on the eyes, lips, cheeks, and body, and can be mixed to create new shades. For a dewy option, try her new Dewy Cheek & Lip Palettes for a highly-pigmented pop of color. These palettes are blendable with a balm-like texture that provides a dewy, healthy glow.
If you're into cream-based products but want a formula that sets down to a more powdery finish, check out the Jouer Blush and Bloom Cheek & Lip Duos. Each one has two perfectly paired shades and is infused with skin-loving ingredients for comfortable wear.
If you love expressing your creativity through eyeshadows, Sydney Grace has you covered with budget-friendly singles in a wide range of colors, long-wearing Cream Shadows, and a range of palettes perfectly curated for lighter and deeper skin tones.
