Beauty tips for office going city women

February 26th, 2010

Change is necessity, so keep experimenting with your looks. Supporting same boring look and makeup daily, makes your day even duller. Makeup’s not just a daily chore or something that’s just for going out. It’s the essence of female self-expression and a way to bolster the spirit. There’s such a diversity of looks out there, you can do anything to suite your mood. Go with the trend, go wild with colours, it’s the latest trend so you will not look out of place. Think greens, blues, pale pastels, powder, glitter, shimmer, layers, bright, bold, dark, subtle, Smokey, choice is endless.

Smokey eyes and minimal makeup is in trend, so why not try it on and make heads turn around you. So if you wear same make-up everyday to work and want new life into your looks, here are some tips:

  • Try using different colour eye shadow everyday of a the week, on Monday go for brown and on Tuesday tell yourself it’s time for blue, whether you like it or not. At the end of the week you’ll feel incredibly liberated and so many compliments. Keep experimenting! But always go with your dress shades.
  • For the office the palest effect is most appropriate. Go for two browns, a matte and a shiny. There’s no need to limit colour, though. Try pale baby blue on the lid, or a pale peach. And remember, rules about colour matching are there to be broken, ignore those rules that say, if you’ve got blue eyes, you should not wear purple and so on.
  • If you want to vamp up your Smokey eye look, remember that it doesn’t have to be about black. You can do it with any colour you like, by dusting it on the upper eyelid and blending upwards. Then take some eye pencil and run it along the upper eyelid, close to the lashes. Next take a smudge brush and rub it back and forth over the line. Underneath the eye, take an eye shadow and sue it instead of eyeliner, applying with a thin brush.
  • Liberate the inner liquid liner queen in you. If you are unsure about how to use it, it’s just about practice in order to develop a steady hand so that both eyes match. To steady your hand, rest your little finger on your cheek, and use your eye lashes as a guideline. Run it into your lashes, so you don’t get a thick line, and do it in one swipe. Steady your hand with little finger all the time and before you know it, you‘ll be doing cat wings. Black or brown liquid liner is good for the office with black mascara.
  • If you have rounded cheeks and want to trim them down a bit, and give yourself more jaw line, apply bronzer in the shape of a 3: start at the temples, sweep along outer corner of face, then onto the cheekbones, then the jawbone. You’ll see a massive improvement to the shape of your face.
  • If you have thin lips, brush some of your foundation on your lips to make them look light, then put the lipstick on top with no  liner. It will enhance lips and stop bleeding of colour. And always use gloss on your lower lip because it catches the light and make look plump and cute.

Always keep lip gloss, mascara, face powder and liquid liner handy, a must in your handbag for those touch-ups.
