The corporate environment can be challenging, and therefore it is essential that women look competent and professional to move up the corporate ladder. Here are some simple makeup tips that will help you look your best at work.
Long lasting – If you work a nine to five job, you will have little to no time to retouch your makeup during a busy workday. Invest in makeup that is long lasting yet gentle for everyday wear.
Low-Maintenance and easy – Most women will have about 30 minutes to get ready and get out the door. Look at a makeup look that is simple, and one that can be completed in 10 minutes or less.
Should enhance – You want makeup to improve what you have and not make you look like someone else. Therefore mimic looks that are subtle but those that enhance your natural features.
Don’t distract – Avoid wearing makeup that is distracting, like hot pink lipstick or a bold eyeshadow. You want your colleagues to take you seriously and to listen to what you are saying and not be distracted by your makeup choices.
Comfortable and polished – The makeup you wear should make you feel like you are not wearing any makeup, yet make you feel amazing.
What you should invest in – Invest in an eyeshadow palette that is neutral and one that includes a few shades that can be mixed and matched. When looking for a foundation and concealer look at one that is long lasting, includes SPF protection and one that matches your skin tone perfectly. A good mascara that doesn’t run is a good investment, coupled with a lipstick and lip liner that is slightly darker than your natural lip color.
