Watch: How to Get a Glowy, All-Natural Makeup Look With 4 Products!


I’m a huge fan of a minimal makeup look for several reasons. The first, and perhaps the most obvious, is that it barely (no pun intended!) takes up any time. With just a handful of high-performing safe, toxin-free products, I can achieve a pulled together natural look and step outside my apartment feeling polished and confident.

Since I’m using fewer products on my face, I also feel as though I’m giving my skin a breather and allowing it to get back into balance. This look is all about enhancing what you’ve got as opposed to masking the inner gorgeous you by caking on product after product. I simply toss these products into my bag before I walk out of my place to freshen up mid-day or before an after-work event in a flash.

Watch my morning routine below, which will give you an effortless, glowing toxic-free minimal makeup look in just a few minutes. I swear! See for yourself.
