The 9 To 6 Look

Wearing makeup can be quite a task when it comes to acquiring the perfect working woman avatar. There is an extremely thin demarcation between perfect and overboard which has to be kept in mind while donning those layers. So couldn’t agree any more with us? Check out these handy hints to a perfectionist’ secrets of applying make-up and get ready for compliments all the way.

Facial Tone
Keeping in mind your skin tone and texture, choose an appropriate colour of foundation. Do not opt for something that’s too light for your skin or something to dark that exemplifies Gothica. Powder foundation requires a lot of touch ups hence settle for a mineral based and oil free liquid foundation that remains intact and helps hide any marks.

Cheeks
Unless you want to come across like a wild babe, steer clear of blushers that have a hint of sparkle, instead opt for a light colour and apply a soft stroke that doesn’t not crave for attention. Fair skinned women can try shades in pearly pinks and peaches whereas those with dusky complexion are best complemented by bit bronze and coral tones.

Eyes
Experimenting with all swanky eye shadow colours look great for a night out; hence it is best to settle for softer shades of greys, browns and bronze. Shimmer though best avoided at work, can still be applied if you love the Diva look. Restrict your eye liner choices to black and brown unless you have a psychedelic celebration happening at work.

Lips
Those with a love for lipsticks can opt for subtle yet elegant shades in pink, peach, caramel brown and light copper, however do not get carried away with sultry reds and perky oranges. Ditch the matter versions and stick to a lip shade that is creamy and keeps your lips soft all day. If lipsticks are not your forte, enhance your lip line with a mild shimmer based gloss in neutral shades.
