Now that I’m working again, I have an excuse to do my makeup every day! Hooray! And this is what I came up with today. It’s a super quick, easy look that still looks pulled together and polished. All photos can be clicked to see larger. I purposefully took these photos in my office because I think we have all been in the situation where we do our face at home and it looks fabulous and then in office lighting it looks EWWW. So I wanted to show you that this look does in fact look alright under fluorescent evil lights.
Fun Office Makeup Look
March 2, 2011
Just being silly. ;)
Breakdown of the look…
FACE: MAC Studio Fix Powder Plus Foundation in shade N3, applied with an ELF Studio Powder Brush. My skin’s behaving and I was in a hurry, so I skipped concealer. I have heard some people complain that this powder foundation is cakey, but I haven’t found that to be the case. Nor do I find that it oxidizes on me.
CHEEKS: No bronzer or fancy contouring necessary. I just tapped on some Rock ‘n Republic blush in Spank with a duo fibre brush. This blush is the perfect pink. And I’ve tried a lot of them!
EYES: Brows are filled in with my trusty Billion Dollar Brows powder (and really need some grooming… oops). I applied MUFE Aqua Cream in shade #2 to my lids. It’s the most beautiful taupey pewter. I love Aqua Creams because they can be applied with your fingers and they do not crease. Pretty enough to wear alone but great bases as well. Finally, my favorite mascara lately is Hourglass Film Noir mascara in Onyx. I neglected to curl my lashes this time.
LIPS: Okay, you’ll be wowed. This lip is a tinted lip balm. Seriously. It’s Vasanti Cosmetics‘ Tinted Lip Balm in Tahiti. It may just be one of my favorite lip products ever. Not only does it really pack a punch in the color department, the color doesn’t fade right away like other tinted balms (-ahem- Labello), and it’s so moisturizing.
By the way, do you like my glasses? I got them from Zenni Optical, which is a site I’ve also run ads for on my Twitter account. I just wanted to let you guys know that I run ads by Zenni because I really do like them! Not only am I a happy customer, so is my mom! :) We both paid for our glasses, and nobody asked me to post this on my blog.
