Model Blanca Padilla spends a great deal of time on set in the makeup chair, so when it comes to her personal beauty routine, the girl likes to keep things simple. The perfect example is her latest Instagram post, where she shared a 10 minute, almost five product beauty routine.


First up, Padilla applied a serum to damp hair, before moisturising her skin and going in with a handful of makeup products: concealer to even out and illuminate the complexion, a subtle contour stick, eyelash curler and mascara, highlighter, brows, lipliner and lipstick on both the lips and cheeks. She omits the lip stuff out of the “five product count” but admittedly it still seems slightly over – seven not including the eyelash curler? Either way, it’s definitely minimalist and judging by the beautiful end result, we’re absolutely taking notes.

While she didn’t share the exact products used, we’ve taken the liberty of compiling a few options for you so that emulating her supermodel makeup aesthetic is just a little bit easier. Think creamy, no-fuss makeup products that don’t require technical skill, and one simple tool to bring everything together: a damp blending sponge.
