Minimal Beauty Trend Spring/Summer 2016

Hi everyone! How are you doing?

Sorry for being MIA for the past weeks, I have been sick on and off and it’s been quite annoying. Anyways, I have been changing up my make up style a little bit and I want to share with you one of my favourite style for this Spring/Summer 2016. Minimal style is actually the new trend for this season.

A few key factor to successfully pull off this look are:

  • Dewy & glowing skin (now you know why everyone is talking about strobing and highlighting)




  • Earthy/Warm/Nude coloured eyeshadows and blush/bronzer



  • Embrace your natural brows




  • If you are going to wear bold colours of lipstick, minimize the colours you use on the rest of the face.



  • A little shimmering eyeshadow/eyeliner in the inner corner of the eyes will help open up and enhance this natural look.

Spring Dewy Make Up

Hi everyone, to follow up with my Spring 2016 Trends post, I was inspired and decided to create a make up look myself and share with you the products that I used to create this look.

As mentioned in the last post, this Spring is all about soft pastel colours and glowy dewy skin.


Primer & Foundation:

This Spring is all about the dewy & healthy skin. Make sure to use a primer before applying your foundation to not only keep your make up long lasting but also protect your skin from all other environmental affects.

My two favourite primers of all time for oily skin are:

Motives Cosmetics Perfecting Primer  ($34 CAD)


SmashBox Photo Finish Foundation Primer (Sephora – $44 CAD)


For foundation, I like to use liquid foundation that can dry like powder as I have oily skin but also look for something with great coverage.  Motives has a great line of this liquid powder foundation which is great for oily skin in Spring. It is a liquid foundation but dries like powder. I am wearing Motives Liquid Powder Mineral Foundation in Sandy Beige for this look ($40 CAD)



Highlighter & Blush:

I am absolutely in love with this new Motives I DO Palette designed by celebrities Make Up Artist Jackie Gomez. Their highlighter & blush is just at the perfect shade for this season and are suitable for all skin colours.

Motives I Do Palette ($66 CAD) 



To give my eyes a soft pastel look, I use Motives Pressed Eyeshadow in Love Me on my eyelids and Motives Eye Illusion Eyeshadow in Essence on the crease

Motives Pressed Eyeshadow in Love Me ($20 CAD)


Motives Eye Illusion in Essence ($27 CAD)


Eyeliner & Eyebrows: 

My favourite eyebrows product for this season is the Anastasia Dip Brow in Medium Brown  ($23)


Don’t forget to add your favourite liquid eyeliner & lashes to this look.


Last but not least, this look will not be complete without adding some extra natural soft pink shine to your lips. With this look, I use Motives Lips Candies in Cotton Candy.

And this is it! You have a Spring 2016 inspired look that goes with pretty much anything that you decide to wear that day. Fresh & Fab! What do you think?
