5 Neutral Makeup Looks That Will Make You Feel Flawless At The Office
Neutral makeup looks do not need a drawer of makeup products to have a perfect outcome. With good base products for the face like a primer, foundation, and concealer you’ll probably won’t need touch-ups for the whole day. Also, don’t forget to keep your eyebrows on fleek, your cheeks blushing and your lashes curled and in full bloom.
You can also use just one versatile palette for your eyeshadow; preferably a palette of bronze, browns, and beige for a classy eye makeup. It can also be a mix of mattes and shimmers, light and dark shades or cool and warm tones. And for your lips, take hold of your lipsticks that are good for an everyday look: pink, coral, mauve, brown-based or peachy shades.
With those tips said, let’s put ’em all together for five neutral makeup looks for your days at work (and even after, with the magic touch of lipstick and winged eyeliner):
1. Warm Monday Look
Start your week with a quick, easy and flattering makeup. For this look, have a perfect blend of light bronze and taupe (or a camel sandy matte shade) for your eyeshadow. If you’re not in a rush, you can apply a black eyeliner on the upper lashline to open up your eyes and make you look awake (after a fun-filled weekend). Complete your makeup with a warm peachy shade for your lips.
If it’s your first time to go to work with a full makeup, better surprise your colleagues one step at a time — ’cause there’s more to see before the week ends!
2. Barely There Tuesday Look
Add a little intensity to your makeup look by using a medium brown shade for your eyes. Create a halo effect on your eyelids using a subtle frosty pink shade and put it in the center of your lids. Color your lips with a salmon pink lipstick. So that’s your Tuesday look — still soft and easy to do!
3. Smokey Wednesday Look
Let’s add a bit of smokey-ness to your Wednesday look! Using dark shade, create a wedge shape on your eyelids for a lifted effect on your eyes. It’s actually thicker on the outer corner of your eyes than it is in the inner corner to open up your eyes more, especially if you have hooded or monolided eyes. Then blend it to soften the edges. Add a champagne shade on top of the deep purple shade and pop a mauve eyeshadow onto the crease. To balance your look, a natural tint of lip gloss is a two-thumbs up! This look may be on the smokey side but don’t worry ’cause it’s still wearable at daytime, especially at work.
4. Terrific Thursday Look
For Thursday, let’s add more emphasis to your office look. Start off with a champagne shade as your base color. Have a perfect mix of taupe and mauve and apply it on your crease. Add some glitz on your inner tear duct using the lightest shimmery color in your palette. Don’t forget to tightline your upper lash line using an eyeliner. Finish your look with a lovely pink shade for your lips. Ta-dah! A more polished, girly and fun makeup on a workday!
5. Finally, It’s Friday Look
TGIF! Level up the last day of your work week with a bang! Start off by lining a thick shimmery copper shade near your upper lash line then blend it upwards your eyelids. Then, apply a matte reddish brown on your crease and a gold highlight on your inner tear duct. Since this makeup is focused on the eyes, a pinky nude tint of lip gloss is perfect for your lips.
