Having a polished make up look is a great way for you to present yourself in the workspace. It is also important to not go overboard when it comes to doing make up in the office, since you want to maintain a professional appearance. Take a look at how you can get this flawless office look from any Guardian or Watson for under IDR 150.000!
Step 1: Prep Your Skin
Cleanse your face as it is crucial to have a clean face before applying any make up. Wardah Acne Cleansing Gel (IDR 23.000) is a transparent gel that is incredibly soft, and has ingredients that prevent acne and control oil, leaving your skin fresh, oil free and soft.
To achieve healthier skin, we recommend Bio Oil (IDR 120.000), a specialty oil that effectively care for the skin. It helps with aging skin symptoms, stretch marks, uneven pigmentation (like sun spots), and dry skin to become healthier and more moisturized.
Step 2: Foundation & Conceal
To look professional, avoid applying too many layers of foundations on your face as that will make your face look cakey.
Revlon Absolute Radience + CC Cream (IDR 132.000) serves to improve the appearance of the skin as well as the foundation to disguise appearance of large pores. It is enriched with extracts of Licorice, Vitamin C and Mulberry that leaves a flawless, dewy and luminous finish that also promises to fix skin texture and improve elasticity.
For those who have acne or scarring problems, we love Maybeline Fit Me! Concealer (IDR 100.000). This concealer does not only magically hide away your acnes and scars, it is also very lightweight and non-comendogenic (will not clog pores).
Step 3: Eye Make Up
For eyeliner, go with Wardah Optimum Hi-Black Liner (IDR 65.000) that promises to give you the absolute precision when it comes to creating the perfect eye line with its pen-like grip.
When it comes to eyebrows, try NYX Eyebrow Pencil (IDR 88.000) as the color perfectly pigmented on any eyebrows and can last very long.
For eyeshadow, use nude colors as your eyeshadow with the addition of nicely blended nude brown color on your crease. We always love Maybelline’s new Nudes Palette (IDR 150.000) as there are 12 colors to choose from for your office make up looks.
Step 4: Bronzer or Blush
Avoid putting on both bronzer and blush on your cheeks. This combination can make your face too colorful and sometimes, make you look older.
If you want to create a slimmer look, we applying Elf Sunkissed Glow Bronzer (IDR 65.000) along your jawline to define the area. When it comes to bronzer, less is more, so do not overdo it, and don’t forget to blend.
If you prefer to look flushed and dewy, try Bourjois Pastel Blush (Rp. 135.000), and apply it gently on the apples of your cheeks.
Step 5: Lips
NYX Matte Lip Cream (IDR 130.000) is the absolute recommendation for this look since it is not only long lasting, it gives an impressively neat and natural matte look on the lips, with moisturizing effect.
When it comes to office looks, keep it simple and classy. Of course everyday can be different, but remember to put a professional look so that you can focus on your work instead of being distracted by your make up.
