When you are working in an office, you want to look your best. Makeup is the answer of course, but knowing which products will stand the test of boardroom meetings, and dealing with Karen from finance is the key.
We have picked our favourite long-lasting products that will see you through the day. So keep reading to find our favourite makeup products for the office.
Makeup Obsession Even Out Primer
The best place to start a full face is a good primer, and this primer by Makeup Obsession is a really great primer. From a range of 4 different primers, this primer is designed to even out redness and create the perfect base for makeup. Locking in your skincare, and leaving your skin perfectly even and ready to receive the next step of your makeup.
Kat Von D – 24-Hour Super Brow Long-Wear Pomade
After priming, we always do our brows. We are busy people, so one thing we don’t want, is our brows going anywhere. This pomade is waterproof, sweatproof and seriously smudge proof. Using a brush this pomade creates a sharp finish and a really good set of brows.
Makeup Obsession Mega Conceal
We all need a good concealer, and we have fallen head over heels for this jumbo concealer from Makeup Obsession. This concealer offers buildable coverage boosted with caffeine that gives your under-eyes a tingling sensation. Covering as much as you want, this dries down to a semi-matte finish, that you can set with powder or leave as it is.
Charlotte Tilbury Light Wonder
As we move into the warmer months we want to let our skin breathe. So we turn to lighter foundations. This Charlotte Tilbury Light Wonder is perfect for summer skin. This moisturising formula evens out skin-tones protects from the sun with SPF 15 and even reduces wrinkles with youth-boosting technology.
e.l.f. Perfect Finish HD Powder
When you are in the office you want your makeup to last. One way to do that is to use powder to set your look. Powder for some is not desirable, but with the e.l.f. perfect finish powder, you will be converted. This powder is pressed, but applies like a loose powder, and blends into your liquid layers like a dream.
e.l.f. Powder Blush Palette
When it comes to our blush, we like to keep it muted for the office, but then amp it up for afterwards. For that, you need buildable coverage. We love the e.l.f. Powder Blush Palette as they sweep on delicate layers of sublet colour, but can also be built up to dazzle.
Makeup Obsession Mega Honey Highlighter
Who doesn’t want to shine bright like a diamond, and for that highlight is all out friends. Unless you are a specific skin-tone, a lot of highlights look silver/white and off. For pale skin and warmer dark skin tones, a honey-toned highlighter is the one for you.
We adore the Makeup Obsession Mega Honey Highlighter, it goes on a dream, is buildable, like all Obsession products are cruelty-free and vegan. Oh, and did we mention it is £3.
Chanel Rouge Coco Ultra Hydrating Lip Colour
Lipstick never lasts all day, and matte/liquid lipsticks get crusty. The perfect lip for the office is a sheer moisturising lipstick that you can touch up through the day. We are really into the Chanel Rouge Coco lipsticks, they are super hydrating and have a great colour range.
e.l.f. Matte Magic Mist & Set Spray
Once your office makeup is done, you want to seal the deal and keep it very firmly on. We recommend a setting spray. We love the e.l.f. Matte Magic Mist & Set Spray as it sinks into your makeup all the way to your skin, securing all your hard work in place. This baby can even combat the heat of the tube. This setting spray is seriously good!
