The Simple Life
Embracing the luxury of minimalist beauty
Clearing out the clutter is amazing when it comes to our spaces (there’s a reason why Marie Kondo’s bestselling book “The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up” is sparking major joy)—but can decluttering carry over to your beauty routine?
While we all want to present the most polished, positive version of ourselves—in real life and on social media—the pressure of complicated daily systems can be incredibly overwhelming and stressful.
Many people are finding ways to incorporate minimalist methods into their beauty routines. The key? Consider thoughtful, lasting strategies and high-quality products that minimize the fuss while maximizing results.
Here are some ideas for boosting your natural beauty while streamlining your daily make-up practice:
1) Multitask your skincare
One of the easiest ways to simplify your morning is to find products that give you multiple solutions in one. For everyday looks, swap the moisturizer, sunscreen, primer, foundation routine for a BB or CC cream that includes SPF and skin-boosting ingredients.
By moving to an all-in-one solution for your day-to-day, you can save major time, hassle, and counter-top space.
2) Grow your lashes
It’s hard to resist the look of long, thick lashes—but coats of mascara, false eyelashes, and eyelash extensions can be time-consuming, expensive, and even painful.
Instead, why not grow your eyelashes so they’re perma-lush and gorgeous?
Using an effective, nourishing eyelash and brow serum like Mojé is a simple, quick way to improve the look of your lashes while cutting down on the steps and products in your daily beauty lineup.
3) Zap away hair (forever).
How much time (and razor burn) have you wasted in the pursuit of de-fuzzing? Permanent and semi-permanent hair-removal options like electrolysis or laser hair removal can be a bit of an investment, but nixing unwanted hair for the long term is a little luxury that saves you serious time in your self-care process.
