So you want to look your best for the office but you only have two looks- the fun night out look, or the au-natural look. While you definitely do not want to rock a sultry smokey eye to the office that might look like your fun night out never ended, you also do not want to look like you don’t care and not wear any makeup at all. So how on earth do you reach a happy medium?
Cue the fireworks and celebratory trumpets: we have just the right tips and tricks to help you achieve the perfect office look!
- Face the facts: The secret to a natural, flawless complexion is foundation. You want to be seen as a natural beauty, so go for a foundation with a lightweight formula and focus its coverage only on your problem areas. You don’t want to a caked-on look with layers and layers of foundation. The right foundation will give you and effortless natural without looking like you tried too hard.
- Lay off the eye-candy: Sure, glitter shadows and a thick, sharp wing are perfect for a bold, captivating look, but let’s not experiment at the office. You might want to make your eyes pop, but let’s remember that less is more when it comes to the workplace. When it comes to the eyes, stick to eyeshadow shades in the neutral family, like soft browns. Apply a little eyeliner to enhance the eyes without making a bold statement.
- Lip Law: When it comes to the office lip look- think subtle. If a bold, bright look is part of the signature look, don’t worry; subtle doesn’t have to be boring. Choose rich, neutral, mauvie shades, or if you can’t live without a red lip, stick with a hydrating lipstick that can last longer with minimal touch-ups throughout the day.
- Rosy Cheeks: The 80’s might have been a blast, but let’s leave the intense blush look way behind! All you need is a little blush to finish off the perfectly polished office look you’re looking for. If your love for the Summer bronze look is strong try to resist, and for the sake of the natural office look we’re going for, let’s skip that step. Adding a soft pink or coral shade of blush will instantly brighten up your look by proving you with a natural flush of color. If you still feel like something is missing, add a touch of highlight to your cheekbones for a radiant finishing touch!
We hope these tips help your next office makeup session be a breeze! Remember less is more, and subtle doesn’t have to be boring. Accentuate your features without caking on the product and your natural beauty office look is sure to be a hit!
