Minimalist Makeup Daily Staples + Glossier Product Reviews

11 Sep 2020 United Kingdom


Every year, my daily makeup seems to get even more minimal. While over the past few months I’ve only worn makeup a handful of times and my skin has been thanking me for that, there are a few new staples that I’ve been reaching for when I want to add a little makeup when I’m going out. Glossier is known for its minimalist nature and simple, basic makeup products and I definitely agree - I’ve been loving some products I’ve picked up recently, so I thought I would share my opinions in case you’re looking to delve into the world of Glossier yourself. 


Revolution Conceal & Define Concealer 

I think every makeup post I’ve shared over the past 4+ years has referenced this concealer and there’s definitely a reason for that. It’s such a great daily staple to cover small blemishes, even out my skin tone and aid in helping me look a little less tired. It’s a medium-coverage concealer so is definitely good for both full coverage looks or, like me, a daily look without the need for a foundation as well. 

Revolution Pro Brow Powder 

I’m not too fussy when it comes to brows these days - I’m definitely going for a more natural look and not the concrete-feeling full brows that I once went for. A simple brow powder like this is a great staple just to fill in any sparse areas in my brows. There's nothing really special about this but definitely does the job!

Natural Collection Bronzer 

Another one that won’t be a stranger to those who've seen my previous makeup posts. A simple bronzer that isn’t orange, adding a flush of bronze and an extra addition to any everyday look but not always needed. For just £2 you can’t go wrong with this bronzer for a subtle bit of colour in your face and also a nice touch to add to your eyelids if you'd like. 
 

Glossier “The Make Up Set” review 

This little trio is a great minimalist staple for those looking to add more low-coverage, simplistic products to their collection or for someone a bit younger, looking to get started in makeup. 3 products that you could easily rock alone or gives you a basis to create your starting make up routine. 



Glossier Lash Slick Mascara 

I’ve already featured this in a previous favourites post - I already had a tube of the Glossier mascara and I already knew it was a fave. With quite hooded eyelids, mascara can cause me real issues with transfer but as this is a more natural-looking mascara with less clumping and focussing on adding length, I haven’t had any issues with this one - lasting until I take it off at the end of the day! If you’re looking for a simple, no-nonsense mascara to give your lashes some definition but not crazy volume, this a great option. It sticks to the basics and does it well! 

Glossier Boy Brow in Brown 

While I wish that I was lucky enough to have fuller brows and could just apply a bit of this brow gel and be done, my sparse eyebrows aren’t made for that - it needs the extra help of brow powder. Applying the boy brow after my powder really finishes off my brows - still looking natural but gives them added shape and seals them into place without feeling like a cemented brick wall. 

Annoyingly, there is only 3 shades and a clear option of the gel and so the brown is a little dark and the blonde, when I tried it in-store previously, is a too light which I could imagine is a problem for others too - finding the options too light and too dark. Extending the range I think would be great! It’s a little tube which is the perfect size for this product but I do wonder if it really is worth it for the amount of product you get for the price. Either way, I’m still loving using it and think it will be a daily staple until it runs out. 

Glossier Cloud Paint in Dusk 

One of the most coveted Glossier products and I can see why! It’s a little tube of a delight that has reintroduced me to the world of blush. I personally am very happy I picked up Dusk - I already am naturally quite pink so this brings a bronzer flush to my cheeks. Definitely, one to be careful not to overdo - it’s easily done with the application and does take a little getting used to using but I am really loving this both on my cheeks but also as a liquid eye shadow. Also, for the amount you use and the amount in the tube, I for sure think it’s worth the money - it will be lasting me for ages! 

I am loving the minimal makeup life - it creates a great base that passes the test of time and can allow me to go about my day without having to think about touching up my makeup and it’s definitely better now with the added Glossier products! 

Have you tried any of these products? 

Hope you’re doing great,
