Skill to Conquer: Beauty Look for the Office


I have just recently become somewhat confident in my makeup skills. After testing lots of foundations, powders, blushes and eye shadows… I think I’ve come down to my signature daily office look. The main things that concern me are as follows: longevity (has to last more than 4-6 hours), color pigment (especially under harsh office lights), and quality (if I’m applying something every day, it better not make me break out). Here are some of my favorites:

  1. Armani Luminous Silk Foundation – After finding out that this is a favorite of Emily from Cupcakes & Cashmere and Kat Tanita, it was a must try. Lasts all day when you use your favorite primer. Looks fabulous in photos
  2. Armani Maestro Concealer – I use this concealer all over. It’s best for under eye, but one drop covers the bags, the redness around my nose, and any small blemishes
  3. Clè de Peau Beautè Concealer – If you can suck up the pricetag, it’s worth the spend. Gives a flawless, airbrushed look. Best for blemishes
  4. Revlon Colorstay Powder – No need to go crazy for powder. This Revlon product seriously keeps me looking oil-free all day long. Even keeps make up in place during post-work workouts
  5. Le Metier de Beaute Bronzer – One of my favorite bronzers of all time. Now that we’re getting into fall, will be using less but still need some around the cheeks and hairline after foundation
  6. Benefit Benetint – Perfect for work because it can be used as a lip or cheek stain. Does not budge
  7. Nars Orgasm Blush – A timeless classic that fits all skintones
  8. Anastasia Brow Powder – Brows are a MUST. I don’t know how I ever did NOT pay attention to brows. Anastasia is the best brand for brow products
  9. Urban Decay Naked Basics – A classic colors palette in muted browns and neutrals is best for the office
  10. Maybelline Colossal Volum Express Mascara – This never flakes on me. NEVER. Trust this mascara
  11. Rose Salve – I rarely wear lip color in the office, but my lips get super dry in the AC or heat. Rose Salve is a savior
