Ever wish you could just be ready for work without going through the steps of showering, getting dressed, putting on makeup, doing your hair, etc.? Short of hiring a small army of personal assistants, you’re probably stuck doing the work yourself.
Fortunately, there are tons of easy and fast makeup techniques to help you get ready and out the door in mere minutes. So, if you’re among the many professional women out there working your way up your career ladder and looking great while doing it, follow these low-maintenance makeup tips for the ultimate professional, hassle-free look.
Start your morning off right with a cup of coffee and an ultra-moisturizing, color-correcting cream. Nothing will get you out the door faster than a multi-tasking CC cream that diffuses skin’s imperfections, provides full coverage and sun protection, and helps conceal fine lines, pores, and dark spots. A CC cream formulated with vitamin C and flax seed extract is just the thing you need to quickly get your game face on and get out the door.
Professional-looking makeup is all about moderation. You want to achieve that “put-together look” while avoiding that “heading to the club after work” vibe. An easy way to achieve a classic, professional look is with a splash of color from a weightless blush. Look for a blush formulated with sodium hyaluronate and vitamin B5 to help hydrate and plump the skin, giving you prominent cheekbones as you set about your day.
Another must-have for any professional woman? Mascara. It adds just the right amount of definition and dimension without going over the top. And the best part, it takes mere seconds to apply. Simply start at the root and apply in a zig-zag fashion. This wiggle motion will help your mascara go on evenly and avoid clumping.
You have so many options to complete your office look. Waterproof mascara can be great for all-day wear, while tubing mascara creates water-resistant “tubes” around your lashes to retain color and length, rather than coating like traditional mascara. Whichever you choose, look for a mascara formulated with vegan ingredients that’s also free of parabens and sulfates. Other ingredients like lichen, plant extract, and vitamin B5 will have rejuvenating effects while adding a pop of color.
The last step in achieving a polished, professional makeup look on a busy schedule is applying a light, natural shade of eyeshadow. A neutral eyeshadow palette that includes light browns and earth tones will add a highlighting shimmer to make your eyes pop ever so slightly. Sensitive eyes? No problem. Look for an eyeshadow for sensitive eyes that will deliver richly-pigmented makeup with a powerful B5 Complex.
They always say “dress for the job you want, not the job you have,” and the same goes for your makeup. The best part is that you don’t need to spend an hour getting ready either. With a few high-performing beauty products, you will be out the door looking like the flawless professional you are.
