Beauty Post: My "work" Make-up
Hi guys! How have you been doing? Me? I've been very busy with work and I have A LOT of deadlines to submit this week. Anyways since we're talking about work, I'd like to share to you my work make up. I know, I'm not a beauty blogger but a lot of friends are commenting on how I (or my make up) look fresh at work. So here it is, I'm sharing you how (most of the time) my make-up looks at work.
How I prefer to look: Fresh and Girly
I don't usually put on make-up while I'm at the house (I usually do it while driving cause work is a 2 hour drive fro home) but for the sake of blogging, I did my make up while I was still at home.
Although Paolo (the fiance) prefers my no-make-up look, I put on make-up because of 2 things (1) I look so pale without it; and (2) I need to look presentable at work. So I always start with putting on a concealer (ELF's All Over Cover Stick) and blending it with a liquid foundation (Maybelline's Aqua Gel Foundation -- which I use and love!)
Weird, but I always put on blush on prior to putting on eyeshadow. My staple blusher is Prestige Blushing Duo (Blush and Highlighter) that I have been using for a year cause the color blends perfectly on my skin. It is only after I put on the blush on that I whether or not to put on eyeshadow. In this moment, I decided put on a little amount, (ELF's Gold Eyepot plus Brigthening Eye Color in Brown) for a soft and natural look.
Probably one of my best asset is having a long set of lashes (which I did not realize until a lot of people started asking if its fake or extensions). So to make my eyes look bright and happy, I make sure that I curl and apply mascara everyday. In this case, I used Clinique (a gift by Paolo more than year ago) which I love cause they make my lash look long and thick.
I like putting on lip&cheek tint on my lips for a "natural" look. I love putting on lipstick whenever I go out but I guess to achieve a 'hint" of red/ pink on my lips, I usually go for cheek tint. I love bench's prettywhenpinched cause more than being affordable, it has been a reliable beauty partner since I was in college. And because tints usually dry up the lips, I applied ELF's Lipgloss for a glossy and sweet look. And of course, top my look with a pressed powder (Covergirl) for a smooth finish.
And tada! My sweet, girly everyday work look. The colors might differ because of the lighting condition, but after more than an hour of driving from the house (and retouching my liptint) here's how it looked:
Simple and really fast, right? Since I'm into sales (always out in the field) I don't put on heavy make up as I don't want that sticky and smudgy look after a day's work.
And in detail, here are the make-up products I used:
ELF Professional Eyeshadow Brush
ELF Cover Stick
ELF Brightening Eyecolor (Gold and Brown)
ELF Super Glossy Lip Gloss (with SPF 15!!)
Nichido Kabuki Brush
Cover Girl Creamy Natural Pressed Powder
