Today is my first day back at work following a 3 month absence. It's fair to say I am petrified about my return and I have been trying to mentally prepare myself as much as possible.
One of the things I love about make up is the names of the products. Nothing disappoints me more that a lipstick with a number for the name. Really, how much effort goes into calling a lipstick '208'?
So I searched through my stash and pulled out my most confidence inspiring named products.
MAC Well Dressed is a firm favourite for an all over glow, it's very subtle and office appropriate. A step up in pigment from that would be Tarte Fearless, a peachy pink with very subtle golden shimmer. Or I could draw on NARS New Attitude for the longest lasting pink matte flush to the cheeks. Illamasqua Ambition is the prettiest neutral although the golden shimmer may be a little too much for my straight laced office.
I want neutral nails so I'll call upon my favourite formula of the moment, Sephora Formula X. A girly choice would be Unstoppable-a cool toned mid creamy pink. Or I could plump for Standout, a light opaque nude. I've been wearing this a lot recently and it's really chic. Impeccable is on the browner side of nude with a rosy undertone and Brilliant, a creamy nude camel colour is totally office worthy.
Ahh the lips, so many choices! I have narrowed it down to four-for a glossy, almost clear lip MAC Right Image is the way to go. MAC Brave Red is the choice for a bold true red.
With visions of grandeur I could plump for OCC Lip Tar in Queen, it's a long lasting bright coral pink. But for the ultimate office appropriate lip and confidence boost I am bound to plump for the beautiful nude which is Charlotte Tilbury Bitch Perfect.
