Beauty tips for working women

GOING to work does not have to be boring and dreary. Make-up for work should be subtle, natural and easy enough for you to complete it while in a rush but this does not mean you have to hide all the colours from your make-up palette.

The best make-up look for any workplace should be one that enhances your features and not hide who you are.

No matter the shape and size of your body, the tone of your skin and your facial concerns, there’s always a way to enhance your beauty to give you a boost of confidence while at work.

When you feel good about yourself from the inside out, you will feel more confident at work.

Metro Online Broadcast speaks to L’Oreal consumer products division assistant product manager Sharmini Kumar-Sandhu to learn a few make-up tips for working women.

1. Keep skin clean

Our skin is like a canvas, Sharmini said. Taking it as an analogy, a canvas has to be clean with no rough surfaces before painting, to ensure that the finishing colours will stand out better. For women who have concerns about their eyes, you can opt to use a white eyeliner on your lower lashline to make your eyes look bigger and brighter.

The same goes for skin. It is vital to start applying make-up on a fresh, clean and moisturised face. Make-up will come off easily and colours would be dull if you’ve not cleansed off the oil on your skin.

Using moisturiser will also help smoothen make-up application and if it is not used, your skin surface will be rough and dry, leaving make-up looking uneven and unpolished.

It’s also important for you to ensure that all the make-up is removed once the day is done.

2. Choose the right foundation

When trying out a new foundation colour, most women turn to their hands to see if the foundation and their skin colour matches. This is a common mistake.

The right way to choose a suitable foundation colour is to apply some on the side of your jaw.
