Three Stages of Office Makeup

Sunday, April 24, 2016

Recently I was challenged by a colleague of mine to post my office makeup routine online on the blog as he wouldn't believe my everyday makeup routine just takes under 5 minutes. My makeup routine mostly depends on one of the most valuable resources:TIME! and on most days I am short of it. I do occasionally switch up my routine and on 95% of the time, it's either one of the three. Decoding my office makeup for you guys:

4 Minutes Makeup 

Base: Mix MAC Prep and Prime and Photo Bloc (sunscreen) together and apply it as a base.
Eyes: Lakme Eyeconic kajal on the waterline and a colored kajal like Chambor Purple Dazzle on the lower rim for that extra pop of color.
Eyebrows: I love my eyebrows on fleek, and on days when a brush doesn't cut it, I use Maybelline Fashion Brow in Black.
Lips: Nivea Fruity Shine Peach, and I'm out the door.
I apply a muted lipstick shade like MAC See Sheer post lunch.

8 Minutes Makeup

But what if I have some extra time?

Base+: I apply LA Girl Pro Conceal in Warm Honey  to brighten up my under eye area and blend it out with my trusty ELF brush; then I apply Chambor Luminous Loose Power to prevent under-eye creasing.

15 Minutes Makeup

But what if I have some extra extra time? I would probably sleep for an extra hour, but for the sake of this post, let's not consider this ideal scenario.

Base++: I apply Inglot YSM Foundation using my Makeup Geek brush. Post foundation, my face looks flat, so I apply a little blush. Currently, I am loving the Milani Romantic Rose blush which is an office appropriate matte muted dusty pink shade.
Eyes+: I apply matte neutral eyeshadows (Makeup Geek Latte and Mocha) to give definition to my eyes and may switch out the Chambor Eye Dazzle pencil. A light dusting of the dark color over the crease and a light color on the lid.  
As for my eyebrows, at this point, I may switch out the Maybelline Fashion Brow for a powder like the UD Brow Box.

What kinda of an office makeup wearer are you?
