Back to Work
I love my work and being back in the classroom has been wonderful! Today a co-worker took a picture of me with her phone and after seeing it, I thought, this is the perfect everyday 'work' look:
I started with my basic makeup routine - tinted moisturizer, concealer, bronzer as powder, Gingerly blush. For my eyes, I mixed brule and retrospeck as a base, then mixed goldmine and bronze by MAC and applied from the lid into the crease, lined my eyes with Coffee eyeliner and smudged the upper lashline with NARS galapagos before applying mascara. The lipstick I used was MOCHA!!! I think that a work look needs to be something that makes you feel comfortable yet pretty - you should be able to feel yourself, yet also feel confident talking to your collegues, administation etc. You should be able to go to a 'last minute meeting' and always feel put together - a work look really needs to be functional, yet at the same time, it should have that aura of 'the world is my oyster' - knowing your colours is a great help with creating that balance!!!
