It can be a challenge to find the perfect amount of makeup for a work setting, but that definitely doesn’t mean it’s impossible. With these 6 workplace makeup tips, you’ll be good to go in no time!

1. Get Your Glow On

One of the most appropriate looks for a more conservative workplace is a gorgeous, dewy complexion. It looks natural and beautiful and this look doesn’t require applying tons of makeup. Perfect your look by using a lightweight brightening foundation with a touch of liquid highlighter to the high points of your face.

2. Keep Your Brows Natural

No matter their shape or size, all brows are beautiful! Keep them manicured and natural by filling in those brows with an eyebrow pencil and brush over it to blend out the color.

3. Try Neutral Eyeshadows

You can never go wrong by showing off your natural features. Going the neutral route with your eyeshadow is always a great choice and a simple option for the workplace. But if you want to add a little bright color, try using a bright eyeliner. This will complement your neutral eyeshadow and display a little more of your personality.

4. Reconsider Gloss

Instead of using a glossy finish, consider trying a neutral nude lipstick, rose stain, or tinted lip balm. Lip balms have the added benefit of lasting throughout the day without needing touchups!

5. Refresh!

Let’s say you have a meeting later on in the day or in the evening. Your makeup might look a bit worn by then. As a quick fix, dap a sheet of blotting paper to lift away excess oils and reapply your lip color and blush. Doing this will instantly brighten up your face and will make your look just as polished as when you walked in the door. You can also dab the under-eye area with translucent mattifying powder to brighten up the eyes.

6. Enhance One Feature

Wearing a bold lip with bright eyeliner can be a bit much for work. However, if that same eyeliner is paired with a soft lip, everything will balance. So, make sure to pick a single feature to augment. This could be lips, eyes, hair, or even an outfit. Keep it interesting by changing which feature to highlight each day of the week!
