My Everyday Work Make Up

Wednesday, 23 November 2016

I often get asked how I do my make up for work and how long it takes etc so I thought I'd share my everyday work make up routine. I've got it down to a fine art, so whilst it looks like a lot, it only takes me about 10-15 minutes in the morning. 

I start by applying this as my base. I try to stay away from foundation during the week and opt for a BB cream instead as I think it's lighter on my skin and not as heavy as a foundation for an everyday look. 

I then apply this under my eyes and onto any red areas and blemishes to help cover them up. 

Next, I set the BB cream and concealer with this powder, sweeping it all over my face with a large powder brush.  

I don't apply too much bronzer for work, but as I'm quite pale, I like to add a bit of colour to my cheekbones and across my forehead.

I very finely sweep this across the top of my cheek bone with a fan brush, it's definitely a step I could skip, but I love a bit of highlight! 

I love this blusher, it's quite a subtle peachy pink so is perfect for an everyday blusher.

I've only recently started wearing this for work as I only used to wear it at weekends / nights out, but have recently decided to add it into my everyday routine to help hold my eye shadow in place all day.

Although I have most of the Urban Decay Naked Palettes, I prefer not to use them for work, so use this perfect dupe for the Naked 2 palette  it's very pigmented given it's low price and even though it's not those most long lasting product, with the primer, it does stay in place all day. I vary which shades I use, but tend to use a lighter shade across my lid and then a darker shade in my outer corner and through the crease.

I love this eye liner and I'm always raving about it, it's so easy to apply so it makes it super quick and easy for everyday. 

This mascara is perfect for everyday as it's quite cheap and leaves my lashes volumised and lengthened without being too much for work. 

I use an angled brushed and this eye shadow to help shape my brows and fill them in, it's super quick and easy for an everyday look. 

I just use a lip balm for work as I'd feel too 'made up' with a lipstick and like to keep my lips hydrated in the air conditioned office and this one from Nuxe is perfect for keeping your lips moisturised

So that's my complete everyday make up look that I use for work. As I said, it sounds like a lot, but it really isn't and it barely takes me anytime at all. What make up do you use for everyday?
