I've been *trying* to be minimalistic with my make up. It's hard when I have quite a collection to play around with, I can get overwhelmed with my choices. So I tried to limit myself to one brand for a few weeks or else pick out only 3-5 products to use daily. One option I really liked is Jouer Cosmetics fun click-and-go philosophy to effortless beauty. It's a great collection of eyeshadows, blushes, powders and lip products that snap together to create a customizable palette.
The packaging is ideal for travel, too--very compact and flat enough to fit into any makeup bag. It's nice to have the option of switching out the colors to suit your needs or to be able to click the whole collection together to keep it organized.
The product themselves are high-quality and long lasting. What I really like about them is how natural and fresh they look. The Jouer Matte Moisture Tint is a great tinted moisturizer if you have oily/combination skin. While it doesn't stay matte on me, it's the lightest weight base I can wear daily, with a touch of powder (the sheer matte/bronzer duo) throughout the day.
I like that the tint in "amaryllis" is a soft red that looks great on darker skin tones and doubles as a cream blush and a lip tint. For a slightly defined eye, I can use this eyeshadow duo or build it up with the darker shade for something more smokey. I love this lip sheer tint--it just adds a light color to my lips but provides moisture and protection (spf 15) and I like to keep it in my purse. The red lip gloss is good to have to take the look from day to night.
