Today I am going to show a very simple everyday makeup for office which you can do just under 5 minutes. I got the inspiration for this makeup from Kareena Kapoor’s Lakme Eyeconic 22 hour black kajal’s add. I don’t know exactly what eyeshadows and lipstick have been used to create this look but I tried to use budget makeup products which come very close to the shades used on her. The best thing about the look is you don’t need a lot of things to create this look. Only problem is, this look will suite pale to medium complexion ladies. The light pink and mauve tone of the eyeshadow and the lipstick will wash out deeper complexions.
Products I have used
Lakme Absolute White Intense Wet and Dry Compact (review coming soon)
If you have uneven or rough skin its better to use a silicone based matte primer before applying the makeup. Colorbar Perfect Match Primer (review) or L’Oreal Paris Base Magique Primer or Lakme Absolute Blur Perfect Makeup Primer are some good budget primers available in the market which work very well for oily skin. Currently I don’t have any pigmentation so I am not using any concealer for acne marks or dark circle but you should not ignore one if you have those problems. Some budget concealers are Maybelline Dream Lumi Touch Concealer (for under eye dark circles) and Lakme Absolute White Intense Concealer (for acne and pimple marks). I prefer to use light coverage foundation for daily wear because I don’t like the heavy and artificial cakey feeling of high coverage foundation on daily basis from 9 to 5.
For this simple eye makeup I have used the golden beige eyeshadow pigment from the Lakme 9 To 5 Eye Shadow pellet Desert Rose on the lids and Maybelline Colossal Eye Liner on upper lash line and Faces Magnet Eyes Kajal on lower lash line. As makeup in rest of the face stays simple and most of the concentration is on the eyes its better to use a dramatic mascara like the Maybelline Volume Express Falsies mascara rather than an everyday day wear mascara.
Let me know if you like this simple makeup for office or workplaces and what other simple makeup looks you want me to try for you.
