My Work Make-Up Faves
So I have been getting a lot of requests lately on my make-up routine for work! Honestly, I change it up a bit and I think those of you familiar with my 9-5 (lol let's be honest, my 4am to 10am), see me in a variety of different looks. I play around most with eye make-up and lipstick. My rule of thumb is to feature just one at any given time. So if I decide to do a dramatic smokey eye, then my lip color is muted. And vice-versa.
As for brands, I gravitate toward NARS, MAC, Smashbox, and Urban Decay. The NARS Audacious line of lipsticks are simply to die for, the colors are stunning. For NARS Audacious lipsticks, I own Michiyo (a shocking pink), Charlotte (a deep bordeaux), and Barbara (my go-to nude). For MAC, I use Girl About Town (hot pink), Half 'n Half (another nude I love), and Russian Red (my bold & classic lippie!).
All eye colors come from the NAKED 3 Palette by Urban Decay. I also use their lid primer. Half the time, I just use a liner and mascara on my eyes though.
I try to go foundation-free if I can get away with it (yes, I have gone to work bare-faced!). However, if I need to even out my skin, then I turn to Urban Decay's NAKED foundation, or MUFE HD Powder. I contour with Smashbox's 3-Step Palette.
So there you have it! Next up, I want to post close-up pictures of my make-up looks. Would you guys also like a tutorial from me? Let me know!
