Make those morning meetings a breeze with bright and fresh make-up tips to keep you looking awake and alert. A great morning routine will ensure you remain fresh-faced throughout the day.
Studies have shown that women who wear make-up at work are more likely to get promoted because it demonstrates confidence and self-worth.
Appearing competent and professional is still the most important factor in the workplace so don’t go overboard with colours or glitter.
Strike a balance with minimal make-up products that focus on enhancing your natural beauty without looking overdone.
Looking after your skin and appearance is just one part of demonstrating organisation and this can easily be achieved with a low-maintenance routine such as ours:
• Brighten up tired, dehydrated skin with an easy-to-apply tinted moisturiser such as the Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturiser SPF20 and cover imperfections with just a touch of concealer. Office lights are often grey and gloomy but this base will help you look radiant and healthy with its illuminating properties.
• Set with a dusting of mineral-based powder. Products such as Mineralize Skinfinish by Mac give a light coverage that stops the skin looking cakey but maintains a natural glow.
• Keep contouring for the weekend and leave the bronzer at home. Supermodel Lily Cole’s collection for Body Shop has a range of cream-based blush domes that will perk your face up with their apricot and rose colours. The dewy texture of this product is multi-purpose, so use as a tint to achieve sheer peachy lips.
• Avoid smokey eyes, it’s all about creating a clean natural shadow for the workplace. Add definition and warmth by blending soft coffee hues into the eye socket with a round-tipped brush. Simply finish off the look with a coat of eye-brightening mascara which have just been released by Max Factor. b
