Minimal Muse

Hello World,

Have you missed me?

Here I am minus my face!

How very daring of me! No foundation, no lipgloss, no blush, *gasp* *shocked outrage*

Normally I don’t go out of the house foundation-less but lately I’m been somewhat minimal to say the least.

So this be the Muse minus her normal triple layer of eye make-up

I’m not one for posting pics without makeup but I was feeling very daring tonight! Flaws and all for you to view!

Be friendly with your comments hehe!


About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse. If you’re that person feel free to reach out and leave a comment or follow me on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and Bloglovin‘.

    Hello there!

    I thought it was minimal as in “minimal makeup”.

    But no!

    No wonder you like very well-pigmented blushers that can show on your face. You already have naturally beautiful rosy cheeks to start with. And I need my blushers to create this look! 😮

    Hello lovie 🙂

    I owe you a few messages *blush*

    I’ll get to them soon! Hope you’re well!

    No it’s no makeup look hehe!

    You’re way too kind! I’m ick without foundation and blush but you’re lovely to say otherwise.

    I was feeling rather brave and opped to post a minimal look. A few people have been asking after my FOTD’s and why I haven’t posted in a bit and this is basically why…no makeup lately 😉

    Been showering, scrubbing my face, slapping my hair into it’s normal bun, and out of the house I go 😉

    I’ll get back to the normal makeup me soon hehe!

    But thanks so much for making me feel good 😉

    Hugs dear friend!

    you all caught me at a good moment 😉 just out of the shower, freshly scrubbed face!

    I normally have the dark demon circles from hell under my eyes but ocean salt and baby face always help to make me look half way awake 😉

  • petitez

    No worries!! U don’t look your age! 🙂 Is that really your bare face? Nothing? Woh! U do have flawless skin and rosy cheeks. *envy* U look great.

  • A-Mused

    phew thank god pet hehe! I am getting little wrinkles under my eyes lately! I’ve noticed when I smile they sorta scream “look at me I’m a wrinkle!”


    that’s really me..minus it all…

    it’s just one of those out of the shower just scrubbed looks which is giving the illusion of ok looking skin…catch me when I wake up prior to a shower and you’ll see the baggage beneath my eyes!!!!!!!!!!!! *runs away screaming*


  • A-Mused

    oh pets..

    *blush* forget to say thanks for saying I look great! I don’t but you’re lovely to say that!

    *big hug*

  • petitez

    Oh i’m sure u’re exaggerating it! U can’t look that bad. I’m younger than u and i’m starting to get alittle wrinkle under my eyes! *sobsob*

    *hugz back*

  • A-Mused

    LOL I’m serious! Dark circles are scary! *shudders in fear* hehehe!

    Me too 🙁 I think it’s my own fault as when I apply foundation and under eye concealer I really tug at my eye area instead of “pat pat pat pat” as suggested by all MA’s far and wide! I normally smear smear smear and smear some more when I need to be pat pating! Oh well 🙁 I guess I need to be more careful!

    Funny as I have been using anti wrinkle under eye cream for a year now and I do see some results but I also still notice the little wrinkles when I smile!

    How very depressing!

    ow well!

    We are as young as we wanna be right? Age is but a number and all that 😉

    *hugs* Love ya!

    Oh. My. God! You’re such a lucky woman! You look great, stunning! I love how your brows are so nicely shaped even w/o makeup on. I have so tiny, light-colored brows so I have makeup on them all the time!

    And your skin! Do you go to salons? Are you much into skin care or do you not have to do much to it to make it look so nice? I know that the camera takes off much “flaws” but your skin is wonderful.

  • the Muse

    Hi Linn!

    LOL you are far to kind 🙂 Actually I hate how dark my brows are 😛

    I never use any makeup on them and have always been curious about trying to use some but I think they are way too dark already so I might be making matters worst 😉

    Nope no salons! Too expensive 🙂 I use Lush Skincare 🙂 I’m pretty anal about skincare so I definately take good care of my skin! And yup the flash most definately makes it look better hehehe!

    Although I’m lucky that I have no problems with acne or anything of that sort. Although I run oily in the summer and dry in the winter so my skin doesn’t behave so nicely at times 🙂

    You have gorgeous skin too and perfect!!!!!!!!!!

    Thanks for always leaving such gorgeous comments *hugs*

    You should see my Lush Skincare guide! Maybe it’ll interest you 😉
