We’ve seen a huge uptick in the makeup minimalism trend with the rise of beauty brands like Glossier and Milk Makeup. Though we all appreciate a "natural" look sometimes a bolder profile is necessary. This beauty editorial explores the idea of creating a standout face with only two products: eyeshadow and lipstick. Makeup artist Desiree Wise focuses on the eyes and lips to create stunning color combinations. For those who wish to recreate the eye look we recommend using a palette that has a lit bit of everything in it. Options like Urban Decay‘s Born to Run palette and e.l.f.‘s super-affordable 18 Hit Wonders Eyeshadow Palette are perfect for this purpose. Fenty Beauty specializes in standout lipstick shades like its recently released Poutsicle Juicy Satin lippies. ColourPop also has a range of liquid lipsticks for those who want to try out a bunch of shades ahead of the summer.
