I think you look beautiful without makeup. So honestly I don't think you need makeup.
Tahn Bae Koh (9 hours ago)
Hey Buzzfeed! Would you all consider a do over for this try? Maybe a month to really dive in, recognize what you really love, and not deprive yourselves? It takes time to figure it out, years even. A month would be a sufficient try with more research and understanding, of course :)

I don't think minimalism and make-up means NO make up. Doesn't it just mean you use less?

I would tell her that minimalism is not getting rid of everything, but get rid of stuff you don’t use. Its ok to keep stuff you use and love.

Nothing wrong with minimalism. Just not EXTREME minimalism like the guy living out of his van. That’s called being a hobo. Never go full extreme in any direction in life. BALANCE

About a year ago, I became a minimalist and you wouldn't believe how much hate I get. I get called cheap, hippy, constantly made fun of, etc. Friends and family, for some reason, are extremely bothered by the fact that I have a flip phone with a $30 month phone plan. I wear the same pair of sneakers everyday, no makeup (my skin became flawless btw), and if I really need to dress up, I go to Goodwill. This makes everyone nauseous for some reason. Why?
F**k...you're rich

Why would you compare the number of storage units to fast food establishments? I cannot see the correlation..
Yuilen (3 days ago)
In a world of materialism and super-abundance, the new "edgy" is to try and live in the exact opposite, but not really. After all, if they really wanted to live a minimal lifestyle, the first and most obvious choice would be to leave their extremely privileged and technologically advanced first world home country....
J K (2 days ago)
Yuilen Who told you that?
thoughtful_commenter (3 days ago)
If minimalist lifestyle requires you to have only a couple of clothes, it must be 10/10 to be in your wardrobe
DeathlyDiJ (3 days ago)
if minimalism is only doing things that bring value to your life, doesn't that make everyone a minimalist? i doubt that people excesively do things that they don't apreciate.

Her comment about the storage centers is missing some nuance because one reason why they are being used so much is rising housing instability and homelessness.

Lol at men saying all you need is a backpack full of stuff, my pads for my period just for two times alone would take up a backpack...and I know I'm not alone here.

I recently adopted a 21 day policy where if I don’t use something for 21 days (barring seasonal clothes etc ) I get rid of it it’s great

It's a good thing you aren't female because that definitely wouldn't work out 😂

It helps if you are naturally beautiful, I've seen some girls without makeup who definitely need it.

Minimalism is great until you need to tighten a loose screw and you don't even own a goddamn screwdriver.
J K (1 day ago)
Shawn Elliott That 90 day “rule” is just something someone said. The essence of minimalism is to get rid of the stuff that you don’t need. Trashing your basic tools would not fit with that ideal. The essence of minimalism is common sense. For example, a woman doesn’t need 25 pairs of fashion boots.
Shawn Elliott (2 days ago)
+J K: Nobody told me that, but I'm thinking about _other_ people who might get sucked into the "minimalist movement". The 90-day rule would cause a lot of people to ditch their crappy dollar-store tools, which are still better than not having any tools at all.

I have a 4 bedroom house and every room is ready for a guest with everything in it. It's only me and my dog in this house. Guess how many guests stayed with me this year? 3 person in 3 different dates, but when you step into my house it looks like a whole family lives here. I really need to get into this minimalism thing. Hoping to get into 2 bedroom condo for a start.

Why does minimalism mean no makeup? Foundation or powder, blush that can double as eye shadow, and mascara, maybe eyeliner. Done.

Minimalism used to be precticed by muslim long l9ng time ago. Its called the 'zuhud' lifestyle. Nowadays, only some people practice it. Most people has become materialistic. Muslims used to only own 3 outfits on purpose. They ate only when hungry and stop eating before full. They just lived on the most basic of needs and not overdo it. They have the mindset of living like a traveller and living a humble simple life. Because we are more worried with our character as we are preparing for the afterlife to meet god. So the excess money was spent on charity. I bet christians have it too. Jesus, or we muslims call him prophet Isa, led a simple humble life too.

Honestly. I don't like the picture of beauty that is discussed ... like women only look good in makeup ... there's so much beauty in a REAL face, that a smoothed out makeup just doesn't have ...

You look great with little to no makeup!!! Im 30 yrs old and I am a minimalist. My mother died when I was 11 and I watched my Dad collect things that slowly overtook our house! He passed when I was 25 and I had to return to my childhood home and clean EVERYTHING. I don't have alot of clothes I find that if something doesn't fit or isn't flattering I get rid of it and that makes room for something better to come in! I don't wear alot of makeup but I definitely could NOT survive with out foundation. Just the basic makeup no hooker clown faces here hahahaa

What I found is that it is not necessarily about what is essential, but what actually adds value to your life. Accordingly, things like make-up would be fine.
