  1. eyeshadows such as rice paper, wood winked and shroom and good to be used in office, eyeliners are one things which u can enjoy the most in office.MAC fluidlines, faces eye liners and bourjois are good choice and they r decently priced also..
    with this a nice tinted moisturiser or a tinted sunscreen with a compact will do can go for tinted lip balms and lot of lipsticks shades such as MAC half and half mac stay in touch and many other shade such as MaxFactor Colour Elixir Lipstick Rosewood are a good choice too.

  2. You could start off with using a tinted moisturizer and a compact, if you want to use a foundation I would highly suggest bourjois matte mousse foundation which gives excellent matte in finish and coverage not too high and is perfect for summers for combi to oily skin, if you have combi to dry skin you can go for bourjois healthy mix foundation, its very light coverage foundation and gives healthy dewy can follow up with setting powder for compact to give you matte finish
    If you have naturally flawless skin just go for tinted moisturize or tinted sunscreen like lotus matte spf 40 and use a concealer in areas where you require some working like acne spots, under eye etc.
    for eye liners I prefer matte black so love love maybelline gel liner but you can also use browns, green and blues to office without looking OTT just make sure there is no glitter
    I dont use a blush for office wear but if you prefer go for peachy blush and use it very lightly on apples of your cheeks
    for lippies I mostly prefer nudes to rosy brown shades my current fav are inglot refill 61, maybelline colorsensation autumn rush, crazy for coffee
    I dont prefer to use eyeshadow for office but I do use MAC paint pot in groundwork as i have dark eye lids and this totally lifts my eyes and gives a gorgeous sheen to eyes and looks very natural!
    Hope this helped ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. The one thing I will tell you is to use a good moisturizer under your foundation, or a BB cream. If people here will not hit me with a hammer, I would like to point out that making your own BB Cream by mixing together a foundation that suits you with a bit of sunscreen works wonders, or you can use one of many that is available. I like Maybelline BB Cream in the colour Natural (suits me the most) as well as Lakme Absolute Mattreal Mousse foundation, which does not provide full coverage (and unless you really want to look “made up” … well, its better you dont). Though I have oily skin, I moisturize. I suggest you do that too, because in AC the skin really suffers a lot, and if you have dry skin you SHOULD do that. Compact is up to you, depending on your needs and skin tone. I use it, and its good enough for me.

    I sometimes use a very neutral, and non-sparkly blush for my cheekbones… peach suits me, as well as pink, and I generally go with a creamy, non-sparkly blush for my skin, if I think I look too washed out (which I do, a lot of times).

    I generally use good quality liner for my upper eyelids, and use a light kohl to contour my waterline, preferably in brown or black (depending upon your skintone, do that) and I use black mascara to make sure my lashes are prominent. I do not use eyeshadow in general, apart from office parties or casual outings, but I do use a good shade of neutral brown, pink or mauve for my lips, depending upon the kind of clothes I am wearing. I use a lipliner to contour and fill my lips before using the lipstick, and I generally choose matte finish … they just look more professional. Chambor has a lovely selection of matte lipsticks … very professional and nice to look at with around 4-6 hours of staying power. You can also go for other matte brands, or creamy ones too. Sparkly lipstick is just not it at an office. I can also recommend using a lip balm under your lipstick, to make sure your lips stay hydrated.

    Whatever you do, keep an emergency make-up needs bag handy. Here are Seven Things You Should Have in Office –
    1. A Deo.
    2. Paper towels or napkins to wipe face and hands.
    3. a Face Wash (because, you can use it on your face, as hand wash… sky”s the limit).
    4. A lipstick of your choice (which should be, by rights, something you can wear all the time)
    5. A Comb.
    6. Kohl or eyeliner or eyepencil. Black or Brown.
    7. Compact or other form of powder (Trust me!) to instantly brighten your face.

    Also, you can go for optional ingredients, like hair clips, lip balm, moisturizer, sunscreen, etc etc etc. Sky’s the limit.

  4. Wear a tinted moisturizer or BB Cream for office, everyday foundi will get heavy but u want heavy coverage u can definitely go for pan cake’s without spoiling ur skin they r the best. Kryolan and olivia makes good pan cake.
    Sunscreen – i use lotus spf 40 sunscreen since 4-5yrs now. BEST STUFF for any skintype.
    Blush – if ur into blush, u can go for jordana coral sandy beach, terracota, touch of pink.. coz these r subtle yet elegant shades for all time wear.
    eyes – use a good eye primer such as nyx jumbo eye pencil in white is a thorough investment and makes a good eye primer so dat ur eye shadow goes a long way. for eye shadow go for shades like browns/ coppers or if ur into pinks then very sheer pinks coz u defintely doesnt wana scream “LOUD” by wearing a dark hot pink eye shade. REVLON has come out with fantastic palettes of neutrals and browns name Revlon – Colorstay 12-Hour Eyeshadow Quad “Blushed Wines” ..u shud definitely pick this up.. its great for everyday wear..tried n tested ..u can wear dry or wet both the ways.
    Lips – if ur into browns , u can wear lighter shades of browns or even nudes and defnitely corals and pinks. Maybelline and colorbar velvet range lipstick has a huge variety ..pick ur shade ๐Ÿ˜‰
    Mascara – if u want waterproof one then go for maybelline colossal mascara in waterproof and there is also hypercurl mascara from maybelline, good for everyday wear.
    eyeliners – there are plenty in the market, i personally use the vov and lakme one and maybelline gel black eyeliner, but if u wud like to try colors, then go for faces long wear pencils and colorbar i glide pencils. they r superb and stays for long on the lids.
    kajal/kohl – FACES SOLID BLACK LONG WEAR PENCIL is till date my go to Pencil anyday. jet black and stays for long without smudging and also waterproof. otherwise MAYBELLINE COLOSSAL KAJAL is also good and my 2nd option,

    Hope that was helpful.!
    P. s – Keep some wet tissues during office hrs so that u can get rid of those extras
    carry a rose water spray , so that u can spray it on ur make up and remain fresh all day
    and of coz carry a compact, lipstick, face wash etc whatever u think u will need for touch ups.

    All the Best..girl! :yes: :yes: :yes:

    Lots of love n luck
    Ric ๐Ÿ˜€
