Helloo My Lovelies
Today I wanted to share with you the makeup I wear everyday for work.
I work 8 hours a day, 5 days a week and I do not have an opportunity to touch up or really check on my makeup while I’m at work so the makeup I choose to wear has to be able to last and still look half decent by the end of the day. Also, its worth noting that I get up for work at 5am every other week and lets be fair, no one wants to be doing a full face of makeup at 5am on a Sunday..
The way I do my make up for work is the very basics, so just brows, lashes and a bit of concealer just to pull myself together and look more awake because you know, 5am and all that!
So onto the products,
Concealer – I use this under my eyes and on my eyelids just to cancel everything out, I will use this on any blemishes or areas that just need a bit of extra help. I typically apply this with either a stippling brush or a dampened makeup sponge.
Powder – I use a translucent matte effect powder to set my concealer in place, and just to powder any areas that are a bit shiney. If I’m using a dampened makeup sponge I will dip the sponge into the powder and press the powder onto my face in order to set everything, otherwise I will use a fluffy powder brush.
Brow Pencil – I use this just to fill in the sparse areas and perfect the shape and arch a little bit more and then brush them through with the spoolie on the other side of the pencil
Brow Gel – I use this just through my brows to set everything in place
Mascara – I don’t think I really need to explain how I use this, no matter what mascara I am using though I will always curl my lashes first
Setting Spray – Final step is to set everything with a quick mist of setting spray to keep everything as it should be all day
The one thing I will say is that the products shown do change, I’m not overly loyal to the actual product but the ‘category’ stays the same.
So that’s it! That’s my everyday make up for work. It usually takes me about 10 minutes to put my makeup on if I’m actually paying attention and not aimlessly doing everything else in the mean time trying to put off getting ready.
What products do you guys use everyday? I would love to hear from you!
Talk to you soon!
