Women just have to sit and look pretty and everything else is done for them, it is said. But 21st century women have to look pretty and work at the same time! Women want to look gorgeous every time they step out of their homes, even to their workplaces.
But the kind of make-up which works at a party will be a fashion faux pas if done to your workplace. Looking professional and efficient in office does not mean coming bare faced, but the make-up should also not be over the top and loud. Smooth and subtle makeup enhances your natural beauty in the workplace where ultimately your work will speak for you and not looks.
Some Easy And Quick Make-up Tips For Office
Cleanser And Toner
First and foremost tip to remember before applying any kind of make-up is to wash the face and rinse it with a good branded cleanser or face wash. A great painting is made on an empty canvas, similarly for make-up to show well on your face, it should be empty or absolutely clean with the help of a cleanser.
Skin looks fresh only when you let it breathe. Blockage of skin pores prevents the skin from breathing; hence toner should be used to wipe away any remains of the cleanser applied earlier. Astringent can also be used for the same purpose if toner is not available.
After wiping your face clean, massage it with a non greasy moisturizer. Make-up looks good on a hydrated and fresh skin.
Also the presence of UV filters in good moisturizers help in protecting the skin from harsh rays of sun and prevents tanning, which is why moisturizer becomes so important.
Different kinds of foundations are available for different skin tones. Identify your skin type.
For oily skin, foundation with matte effect helps in keeping the make-up together for a longer time, whereas for dry skin, cream foundation is the best. However for dry skin type, even loose powder can be used in place of foundation after moisturizer is applied.
Eyeliner and Eye Shadow
For eyes, good quality eyeliner to highlight the shape of the eyes is required. You should take care while applying eyeliner as it should not go outside the eyelids. Liquid eyeliners stay for a longer time and can survive the whole day of toil at office.
As far as eye shadow is concerned, glittery ones are a cardinal sin to wear to office! Soft and light shades should be used and any experiment with loud shades must be avoided. This does not mean eye shadow should be very dull, rather it should be subtly attractive.
Lipstick and Lip Gloss
Just like the eye liner, it should be put just to define the outline of the lips. Lipsticks come in hundreds of shades, but just like eye shadow, branded neutral shades should be opted for office use.
Tinted and nude shades of lip-gloss are enough when going to office. The best part about lip-gloss is that you can never go wrong with it because it simply highlights your original lip tone. It lasts longer than your regular lipstick. Lip-balm is another utility product and acts as a moisturizer of lips. It is of high importance especially during the winters and help in healing chapped lips.
