“Skincare News” Presents Makeup Tips for Business Dress Code

Share Article

Need some tips on makeup looks for the workplace? Afraid of appearing overdone? Discover how to achieve an office-worthy face that’s appropriate for the nine-to-five professional.

A polished look is essential to a professional appearance, and it starts with a sensible makeup routine. Oftentimes, wearing too little makeup – or none at all – can look unprofessional. On the other hand, wearing bold shades of eye shadow and lipstick may be too sultry for everyday fare. Learn how any woman can put her best face forward the minute she arrives at the office in Skincare-News.com’s latest article, “Makeup Looks for the Office.”

The natural-looking face

Achieving the “natural” look with makeup can be tricky. Sometimes a makeup look intended to look natural can leave behind a complexion that’s pale or dull. The secret behind a natural complexion that glows is a smart makeup routine that embraces the right blend of shades and textures to highlight a woman’s natural features.

The method:

  •     Foundation: Use a sponge to apply a sheer layer all over the face. Dab a little concealer over any imperfections.
  •     Eyeliner: Apply just enough eyeliner to make the eyes pop, making sure the lines don’t go outside the eyelids. Consider using a more conservative medium-brown or black/brown shade to create a softer look.
  •     Mascara: Give lashes a little definition with dark brown or soft black mascara. Apply it with a fan brush instead of a mascara tool to keep it from clumping.
  •     Tinted lip gloss: Choose a fairly neutral shade of tinted lip gloss for a subtle pop of color. Gloss looks more realistic on your face, fades more evenly than lipstick and is easier to re-apply throughout the day.

Playing up the natural look

Some work-related events, like presentations or meetings, might merit a more striking, sophisticated look. Learn how to draw attention to eyes and lips while still keeping a look professional and work-appropriate.

  •     Eye shadow: Switch out neutral shades for shadows with a little more vibrancy. Hues in plum, silvery grey or medium-brown draw more attention to eyes while still looking subdued enough for work.
  •     Lips: Women can get away with a bit of a bolder look when it comes to lips. Going shiny and bright rather than dark and mysterious keeps a makeup look office-appropriate.
