Work Make-Up Routine

Work is one of those times where you want to look polished and put together, but you don't want to get up early to do that. At least, I'd rather not get up at stupid o'clock to put my face on. So, I've cut down the products I've been using and opted for quicker applications. 

I always start with cleanser, no matter what, and then I get straight down to business with Rimmel London 9in1 Radiance BB Cream, and powder lightly with Rimmel London Lasting Finish 25hr Powder Foundation for some extra coverage and a demi matte finish. For blush I like to go with Wet'N'Wild Pearlesent Pink for a radiant, "happy to be here" glow. 

I generally apply a sweep of mascara (Essence Lash Princess False Lash Effect or W7 Absolute Lashes) and a dab of lipbalm over my lips before I leave the house and then finish my eyes at my desk. I usually use my Naked2 palette and blend out two shades for a soft day look For my Brows I'm loving tinted brow gel, such as Maybelline Brow Drama. If I'm feeling inclined I'll lightly contour and highlight with my Sleek Contour Kit and finish with a slick of Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain in Honey. If I want to go for a bold lip, I've been loving my Rimmel Provocalips 16hr in Kiss Me You Fool.

It's just that simple! Honestly, when I'm doing my job it's rare that I'm dealing face to face with customers, but it's nice to look nice in case a client comes in. 

What is your go to work make-up??
