Makeup Look of the Day: The Minimalist

Winona Ryder
The Minimalist is a look that proves that a little bit of the right makeup can go a long way.  I don't always agree that less is more, but on someone with great bone structure and naturally big bright eyes (as in Winona Ryder's case), it really is.  This look is highly appropriate for casual everyday wear, especially in a professional setting.  It is also universally flattering on all skin tones and ages.  

The Minimalist uses really basic makeup: concealer, brown eye shadow in the crease and under eyes, white eyeshadow applied to the inner corners, pink cream blush on cheeks and temples, nude lip pencil and clear gloss.
      For the Minimalist glow, I used Sonia Kashuk cream blush in Blossom (sold only at Target stores).  It comes in a round, shallow pot and is easily applied with your fingertips.  What I like about cream blush is that it blends into the skin really easily and gives you a dewy glow. This cream blush in particular is a nice color on someone with fair skin like myself, as its light rosy pink color gives off a really natural yet noticeable effect.
