Beauty Columnist and renowned Makeup Artist Nikki Wolff knows a thing or two about the latest beauty trends as her staggering 1.7 million Instagram followers (and counting!) can testify. With minimalist skincare – otherwise dubbed skinimalism – firmly on the rise, we caught up with Nikki to learn how to create a natural, glowing look with just 5 Estée essentials.

Nikki starts her pared-back routine with a hydrating step, delicately pressing a few drops of our Micro Essence Skin Activating Treatment Lotion into the skin. This essence-in-lotion helps to strengthen the skin’s foundation to reveal its youthful glow and prepare it for the steps that follow.

Next, she dispenses one full dropper of our cult-favourite Advanced Night Repair Serum into the palm of her hand before gently smoothing it over the face and décolletage to renew the skin’s look of radiance and vitality.

Then it’s onto minimal, skin-kind makeup. Nikki favours Futurist Aqua Brilliance™ Watery Glow Primer, a lightweight, watery fresh formula that immediately triples skin’s moisture for a healthy-looking glow. She applies this with a foundation brush to evenly distribute the product and create the ideal canvas for seamless makeup application.

This primer pairs perfectly with our Futurist Hydra Rescue Foundation, a buildable medium-to-full coverage makeup that is infused with skin-loving ingredients including nourishing Chia Seed Extract, soothing Probiotic Technology and hydrating IonCharged water. Nikki buffs this into the skin using a large domed brush for a diffused look.

The final step is a touch of correction with our Double Wear Radiant Concealer, a creamy, super-blendable concealer that caresses the skin with nourishing botanical extracts. Nikki blends this radiant formula under the eye area to brighten and conceal dark circles for a truly skinimalistic and effortless finish.
