How to apply natural makeup for the workplace

How to apply natural makeup for the workplace
Getting your natural makeup just right for work can be tough to achieve, especially if you're used to wearing vibrant colours and you like experimenting.

However, Elaine Doxie, writing for Helium's makeup section, explained that sometimes wearing makeup at work is essential to professional growth and has offered tips on ensuring you stand out, but for the right reasons.

According to the American Economic Review, women who wear subtle natural makeup earn 30 per cent more than women who go without – so getting it right is key.

"The less comfortable you are with applying makeup, the closer to your natural skin tone you should stay," she said, adding that, for some people, just using foundation can be enough.

When it comes to the lips, she said: "Save the reds, purples and bright pinks for your nights out. Save the high gloss for nights out as well."

Ms Doxie recommended sticking to natural makeup in paler shades such as nudes or pinks, with brown or black mascara and added that, to turn the look into one suitable for the evening, just add a dark eye liner and brighten up the lips.ADNFCR-2885-ID-800017154-ADNFCR
