Makeup for Work.

Hi everyone!
So a lovely reader emailed me about what I do other than this blog and asked me some questions. I am in uni full time but I also have a part time job at a high end retailer. This gave me the idea to do a blog post on the makeup I wear to work! So where I work doesn't have any rules regarding how you have to wear your hair; I've worked in restaurants before and have always had to wear my hair up. I was so excited when I heard I didn't have to wear my hair up in this job, but I still find myself opting for a ponytail most days.

As far as makeup goes, as I'm in work I don't like to wear anything too heavy. First I use Avon's face perfected as a primer which is a really great product. I'm also wearing my bourgeois BB cream which I really love. It always leaves my skin looking and feeling healthy and dewy. I also use Rimmel wonderlash mascara with Argan oil. This does feel nourishing and my eyelashes never feel too heavy but if your looking for a lengthening or curling mascara this won't be for you. I'm also wearing Benefit's lollibalm which has a subtle pigment and feels lovely. I actually used FCUK lip balm in hot pink on my cheeks. When I'm wearing a more dewy look I like to use a balm on my cheeks rather than a powder blush. I also use Rimmel brow this way brow mascara in blonde which is a dream product. It can be so hard to get a good eyebrow product for blonde hair but this is a great one.

So that's it for makeup! I like to keep it really simple and not fuss to much. I hope you enjoyed this post! Whats your go to for work makeup?
