Today is the day that I start in the adult world of working! Now begins the days of early mornings, commuting and long days. Very similar to my Job Interview Makeup I want to make sure that my everyday makeup isn’t too over the top, but will last all day.
I decided to start with one of my favourite foundations, Bobbi Brown’s Skin Foundation. It’s really lightweight and doesn’t feel heavy on my skin (hence the name skin), but I find it gives me the right coverage I’m after and stays on all day without the need for a primer. Then carrying on the Bobbi Brown theme I’m using my Bobbi Brown Creamy Concealer. I’ve found this to be a fairly strong concealer, which is great for covering up my dark circles and blemishes. To then set my foundation I use my Seventeen Miracle Matte Pressed Powder, which is great at keeping my makeup in place all day. Then i’ll be using my Naked Basic’s Palette to fill in my eyebrows, and I’ll also use a couple of the lighter shades for an everyday smokey eye look. Then I’ll be using my Bourjois Twist Up The Volume Mascara, and my Bare Minerals blusher in shade The Tease, which gives me a slight pink glow on my cheeks. I then finish it off with my Seventeen Lipstick in shade Beehive which is just a gorgeous nudey shade giving the impression of ‘my lips but better’.
A very simple everyday look for work which isn’t too over the top, but should stay put all day. I think I’ll be using this combination for a while at work, until I know whether I can get away with a bit more colour with my lipstick etc. Do you find you have an ‘everyday work makeup’ look you go for?
