German Makeup Trend : The Minimalist

Hey Sunshines!

Since I have been living here in Germany, I have noticed a common trend when it comes to makeup- minimalist makeup! Maybe it's just the people I have personally seen, but I can't say I don't love it! Here, I hardly know of many women who use a liquid foundation. most girls use powder, a bit of eyeliner, mascara, and maybe a lip product. When I see girls with eyeshadows, many only use one or two colors at a time ( i am nuts and use about 4 at a time or more!). I love the minimalist look. It lets your natural beauty shine through, while palying up your features. This spring, I have been toning down my eyes quite a bit, and focusing on bright lips:) I think minimal makeup is better in warmer weather, not all the creasing and smudging. It is so carefree and confident! You don't have to pile makeup on your face to be beautiful!
How have you been doing your makeup this spring?
X's and O's,


  1. Hello from Los Angeles!

    Personally loving this look. It's so nice when women just go on the natural side and show off their unique features.

    Found your blog through the Elle and Blair forum. We did an It Girl feature on them on our website, Via Los Angeles. Hope you can stop by and have a look.


  2. Thanks for stopping by! I have been wearing this look more and more! And great website! :)
