Look, I love makeup. I love trying new things and I love applying them, and I love wearing them. And if that isn’t you, that is perfectly fine and good, and I think you’ll like this post.
Sometimes you just want to make an impact with a few products. Maybe you don’t have time, or maybe you just want to simplify, but these are the 3 makeup products that deliver the biggest impact/change to the face.
Lip color: this is a non-negotiable for me. And, if I’m honest, it kills me to see women with a full face of makeup and no lip color. Or worse yet — DRY lips. There are just too many balms, sheer tints, or oils that are effortless to wear and that you can quickly swipe on. You can find a few of my favorite sheer pinks on this Reel, but I’d also personally recommend the Honest Beauty Tinted Lip Balm (I love dragon fruit!) or summer melon looks good too! I also have loved the Fresh Sugar Lip Treatments for years, and find that Bloom or Rose are my favorite colors to wear.
Concealer: Even the tiniest bit of concealer under your eyes, whether your dark circles are intense or not, helps brighten up your entire face! It’s pretty amazing when you look at a before and after with the only product applied being a concealer. One of my favorites is the Nars Creamy Concealer, and I love it blended in with a beauty blender.
Blush: If you do nothing else to your face, add a touch of color to your cheeks. You could even keep it stupidly simple and apply the same product to your cheeks and lips. Like, swipe a bit of this $22 blush stick on your cheeks and lips, use your fingers to blend it out, and live your life.
