Often in our work life, we make the mistake of staying complacent with our cosmetics. Instead, why not make the effort to look polished and professional - it may mean the difference between staying still and moving rapidly forward. Here Kate has a look at ways to climb to the top of the totem pole - without breaking the budget.
Keep it Simple, Seriously!
Unless you work in a position where very glamorous makeup is the go - such as a fab fashion franchise - don't go overboard with any product. Looking artfully bare is a great way to go - and that goes for accessories and scent too. Polished nails are nifty - but try to keep them short and blunt, so you don't look like the Devil wearing Prada - or Prada (perhaps)! A nude lip is a great office accessory - it looks understated but elegant. Also - make it a priority to keep a careful watch on your mascara and eye makeup - nothing is more noticeable than a black eye in the office!
Here at bellabox, we have some favourite products that we find help to rise the right way in the work world. For a great base to your face, try Napoleon Auto Pilot Primer - it will keep your face smooth, even if your temper flares! Savoir Faire Mineral Makeup is a great way to look lovely - and add in their 'Miss You' lipstick for simple work style. If you want to polish - Ozotic is excellent, as illustrated by Sam in the office yesterday! And to keep tricky mascara mistakes at bay, we love Panda Pen - purse sized and perfect.
