Max vs Min Makeup Challenge Using the Same Products

Hey guys! So I’ve seen this max vs. min makeup challenge going around when you do a makeup look that’s very minimalist and then one that very… maximalist? Basically, a simple look and a ‘more is more’ look. To challenge myself I wanted to use the same makeup products to show that you can do a lot using the same products.

So for my maximum look, I decided to use one of my products of the month, the Alamar Cosmetics Reina Del Caribe Vol.1 Eyeshadow Palette. I did a colourful makeup look using the yellow, orange and green shade. I did a big wing and put on a big lash.

On my base, I used a full coverage foundation. I applied a lot of blush and highlight. And I also applied some faux freckles because more is more haha.

I finished off the look with a bright orange-red lip. I used my favourite NARS Powermatte Lip Pigment in the shade Light My Fire. This shade is bright and just screams over the top.

Products I used for both looks

For my minimalist look, I used less of everything. On the eyes, I only used a bit of the yellow shade in the Alamar Cosmetics palette. Then I applied a healthy amount of my Lancome Monsieur Big mascara.

For my base, I applied less of my powder, which was the Hourglass Transculent Veil Setting Powder. This allows my natural glow to shine through. I did apply a good amount of my Alamar Cosmetics Blush because I find blush makes me look healthy.

Finally, I used the same NARS lipstick. I just used a little bit to create this sheer lip tint! I love that this lipstick is versatile enough that I can create two different looks using the same lipstick.

Let me know in the comments which of the two looks are your favourite! I typically wear the minimalist on a daily basis but there is just something about full glam that makes me happy!
