You don't need to cake up your face with multiple beauty products to look polished and put together for work! All you need is just a few beauty essentials that can help you glam up in no time before you head out to your office. These staple products will enhance the features of your face and also complement your formal work attire very well. Check them out below!
Beauty Essentials That Complement Your Work OOTD
1. A BB Cream
BB creams, short for Blemish Balms, are basically tinted moisturizers that give your skin a sheer coverage and make your skin tone look even. A BB cream usually has a lightweight formula that would not make your skin appear oily or greasy throughout your day filled with hustles and bustles.
2. A Mascara
Who doesn't like having long and fluttery eyelashes?
If you are a working woman, a mascara is that one magical beauty product that should be a part of your life ASAP! Ever looked at your blear-eyed face right before heading out for an early morning meeting and instantly regretted staying up late the previous night? Well, you need mascara to save your look for those kinds of days!
Just a coat or two of mascara on your eyelashes can make your eyes look more awake and bigger. Make sure to get a mascara with a long-lasting and waterproof formula so that it stays put all day long, without giving you raccoon eyes!
3. A Brow Definer
Don't neglect your eyebrows!
Having clean and well-defined eyebrows makes a lot of difference to your whole look. Eyebrows frame your face, so if you have sparse or thin eyebrows, use a brow pencil or a powder-based brow product to fill them in. On days when you are in a rush to get to work on time, you can skip applying any kind of eye makeup altogether and just define your eyebrows, that would be enough to get you through the day.
If you are blessed with naturally thick and nicely shaped eyebrows, you can use a clear mascara or a brow gel to keep them in place and not look unruly.
4. A Peachy Blush
Applying a blush may seem a little tricky for you when you are already in a rush to get to work, but most workplaces have crazily bright lights that can make your face appear super pale! That's why you should add a flush of colour to your cheeks with a blush and make your face look brighter. A peachy-pink toned subtle blush is apt for work and it looks lovely on all kinds of skin complexions.
5. A Tinted Lip Balm or Lip Stain
Touching up lip glosses or liquid matte lipsticks while you are at work can be a total headache! So instead of them, opt for a moisturizing tinted lip balm or a long-lasting water-based lip stain to add a rosy tint to your pout. They look extremely natural and feel comfortable on the lips as well.
6. A Light Coloured Nail Polish
Your work OOTD can look incomplete without a nice work appropriate manicure!
Your hands get a lot of attention while you are typing on the keyboard or scribbling your notes at the meeting, so great nails are a must-have! Opt for a light coloured nail shade like DeBelle Gel Nail Lacquer Peony Blossom or Vintage Frost that would go well with all of your work OOTDs.
Aside from all these beauty essentials that can add to your work OOTD, you should also carry a couple of skincare essentials in your handbag - like a nourishing hand cream and a body lotion!
Direct draft of office air-conditioners can dehydrate your skin, making it flaky and itchy. Hence, you should keep a hand cream and a body lotion with you in your work handbag and use them whenever your skin starts to feel dry at work.
