My Work Appropriate Everyday Go-to Makeup Look

Here’s a list of products I swear by when it comes to corporate culture. This look only takes me about 10 minutes and it never fails me. My skin type is dry combination sensitive skin with fair-medium skin tone. The products mentioned down below will be in the order of application.

Base Products

Milk Hydro Grip Primer – I won’t go in too much detail since I always rave about it on here but it’s such a good product especially if you want your makeup to be long lasting while not drying down matte.

Colourpop Pretty Fresh hyaluronic hydrating foundation in Light 70W – Again, I’ve mentioned this before but I repeat myself for a reason! This hydrating foundation doesn’t make me look oily and the coverage is buildable. I usually only do one pump and it’s enough for medium coverage.

Colourpop Pretty Fresh hyaluronic creamy concealer Light 50W – I love the entire Pretty Fresh collection but these two are my favourites. It never creases underneath my eyes, it’s hydrating and the coverage isn’t too full, which is ideal. I also use this on my eyelids as an eyeshadow primer.

Rimmel Stay Matte pressed powder – I love to set my face with a pressed powder because I (tmi) do sweat a lot. I know I’m more on the drier side, but my products initially are very hydrating and I don’t want my makeup to budge.

Eye Products

Colourpop’s That’s Taupe pressed powder palette – A beautifully natural cool tone palette. I love wearing cool tone eyeshadows with my brown eyes. The entire palette is filled with different shades of browns and it’s highly recommended for those natural girls. I love doing colourful eyeshadows but not for work. I use the colour Python or Rock Steady all over my crease focusing on the outer corner.

Kosas 10 Second Eyeshadow in Globe – Alongside the eyeshadow, I like to use this shade as a shimmer. The name doesn’t lie, you can blend this eyeshadow out in 10 seconds. I use That’s Taupe to darken up my crease and I use Globe to add shimmer and shine to my eyelids.

KVD Black Brush Tip Tattoo Eyeliner – I had to add some classics in here and it’s my liquid black eyeliner. I love and cannot live without giving myself a little cat eye, I just think it adds umph to my eyes and finishes a look. This remains my favourite eyeliner.

L’Oreal Telescopic Mascara – Tik Tok made me buy it and I do not regret it at all! Be aware that it’s a Waterproof mascara and it’ll be a little bit difficult to remove but I think that’s why I like it so much. My eyes water so much throughout the day and it never runs down my cheeks. It also adds so much length to my lashes.

Face Products

Physicians Formula Butter Bronzer – Another classic but still new to me. I always heard amazing things about this product but I was busy trying to pan my Benefit Hoola Bronzer. I’m so happy I finally got to try it out. It’s so beautifully natural and it doesn’t have any hard lines. I’m not a contour girl but I like to add some dimension to my face and this does it for me!

Burt’s Bees Blush in Bare Peach –added it to my everyday makeup routine to finish it off and I’m getting pretty close. I love the tone of this blush and it’s a good neutral pink that adds just a flush of colour to your cheeks.

Fenty Beauty Killawatt Freestyle Highlighter in Metal Moon – I love how bright this highlighter is. This is by no means a natural highlighter, but I enjoy a metallic highlighter sometimes.

Lip Products
Essence Soft Contouring Lipliner in lookin love – I have freckles on my lips and I absolutely love this lip liner to colour it up. This colour is the same colour of my lips!

Tower 28 ShineOn Lip Jelly in Coconut – This is the most moisturizing, not sticky lip gloss! I don’t really enjoy plumping lip-glosses and I don’t necessarily like glittery glosses as well. The colour and formula is everything!
