I got a few questions and comments about the makeup that I was wearing in this empties video, so I decided to film a super quick five minute makeup look. This is the makeup that I wear most days to work and it’s my go-to because it makes me look way more awake than I actually am. Also, it’s fast and easy enough to get together at my desk.
Not saying that I’ve ever put on makeup at my desk, BUT I *could* do this makeup at my desk, hypothetically speaking of course.
I love putting on makeup, but I just don’t have enough time in the morning to do a full face. Plus, even though my job is pretty laid back, I’m still a corporate lawyer so I’m not sure that I’d feel comfortable wearing a ton of makeup to work. So, here’s my streamlined, five minute makeup routine:
Glossier Priming Moisturizer + Algenist Drop & Glow Luminizing Drops in Champagne (I’m a Glossier Rep, so you can shop with me using this link to get 20% off your first purchase). I recently discovered this combination and honestly, sometimes I’ll only do this + apply sunscreen. I know I didn’t apply sunscreen in the video but that’s because I filmed it towards the end of the day. Don’t get it twisted, I wear sunscreen everyday.
Clinique Beyond Perfecting Super Concealer Camouflage + 24-Hour Wear in 24 Deep. My current favorite sunscreen because it blends into my face seamlessly when I’m not wearing foundation.
Glossier Wowder* in Dark/Deep
Glossier Boy Brow in Clear
Maybelline Face Studio Master Chrome Metallic Highlighter in 100 Golden
Maybelline Mega Plush Volum Express Mascara
Sephora Collection Ultra Shine Lip Gel in Nude Alert
So, do you wear makeup to work? Tell me why or why not. Is it a time issue or is it the culture of your job?
P.S. I have the video showing up top, but in case you’re having trouble, here’s a link to the video.
