Beauty gurus have been opting for more minimalistic beauty routines recently. We are seeing a shift to prioritising ‘beauty from within’, where beauty enthusiasts are choosing to focus on minimalist skincare and are reducing the number of makeup products they use.

Why should we jump on board with this trend? By allowing the skin barrier to repair itself through pared-back skincare regimes and lightweight makeup, your skin can be more rejuvenated, radiant and luminous. It’s less time and less effort, not to mention easier on the environment and your wallet! 

Here are some trusty must-have products to achieve the ‘less is more’ look:

LASH SERUM: Coverluxesilk Lash Luxe™ Advanced Eyelash Growth Serum

RRP: $68.95
Coverluxesilk Lash Luxe™ is a gentle formulation of natural elements, dermatologically tested and proven to increase your eyelashes’ length, thickness, and overall strength. Our cutting-edge formula features a blend of Organic Plant Extracts, Peptides, Biotin, and Pro-Vitamins including B5 and E that work simultaneously to produce breathtaking growth results in as little as 7 days!

FOUNDATION: Nu Skin Nu Colour Bioadaptive BB+ Skin Loving Foundation

RRP: $77


Makeup that doubles as skincare. Nu Skin’s Nu Colour Bioadaptive* BB+ Skin Loving Foundation rewrites the rules of makeup. It cleverly combines the payoff and staying power of a foundation (up to 12 hours!) with the skin-nourishing benefits of a BB cream. The hybrid formula imparts a luminous, second-skin finish – the kind that feels effortlessly invisible, just the way you like it.


CLEANSER: Nourishing Cleansing Oil
