Waking up at 5:50am Monday-Friday for work means I have to get creative with my makeup routine. I don’t want to be too caked up for work but I also like looking done up and awake for when I get to the office around 7am. With a month into my job, I have nailed down a go-to work makeup routine!
I always start my routine by splashing cold water onto my face. By Wednesday morning, I am pretty sleepy especially if I had kickball the night before so this step is crucial. My next step in my routine is to apply concealer (Cover Girl Ready Set Gorgeous and the Maybelline Master Conceal) to any blemishes, red spots, and my under eyes (hello looking semi-awake). I then apply foundation, currently I am using the Maybelline Fit Me foundation! I set my foundation with the Maybelline Fit Me powder. I also keep some setting powder in my work bag because by the end of the day if I don’t powder my face again, my make up looks like it melted off. I use bronzer to contour if I am feeling a little frisky, but some mornings I go straight to blush. Currently, I am using Tarte bronzer and blush!
The most important step in my work makeup routine is my brows. I fill them in with my Stila brow pencil and my Urban Decay NAKED Basics with the eyeshadow color Faint. Once my brows are on fleek, I use my NYX eyeshadow base and prime my lids before doing a simple eyeshadow look. I usually go for my NAKED 3 palette and finish it off with my Almay eyeliner. For the finishing touch, I curl my lashes and then use my Clinique Lengthening mascara and Maybelline Falsies.
