A Work FOTD

I've started doing a day a week work experience at a Social Media company, and in my true vain way, I thought I'd share with you the make-up I decided to wear, as I've never really had to have a 'work' face. Now I've tried a few different looks, 'cause nothing ever seems to last on my face.

My first week I tried using the DR Jart BB cream as a base and then applied the Bare Minerals foundation over the top, but that didn't really work.



The week after I had a go at mixing my two 'long wear' foundations Estee Lauder Double Wear Light  and Diors' Forever. But again, that didn't really last well. I don't have a photo of it 'cause it was dark that morning.

So I've now decided that if products aren't going to last, I'm just going to carry on with my Bare Minerals foundation and hope that my being light on my skin, it will start to clear up, so it won't matter that my make up fades.



Base:
Bare Minerals Original Foundation
Maybelline Dream Lumi Touch Concealer
Estee Lauder D/W Concealer

MAC Brun - Brows
Maybelline 24 Hour Color Tatto - Permanent Taupe
MAC Mystery // Carbon
Max Factor False Lash Effect Mascara

Cheeks:

  7. Your post inspired me to give the Maybelline taupe cream eyeshadow another go ... especially now that I'm more into mattes. I'm forever paranoid that I wear too much makeup to work ahaha! My criteria is fairly natural but polished base and not too shimmery eyeshadow and applied not too heavily (everything needs to be quite light). But I still do a full face of makeup every day for work :p
