My Winter Makeup | Work Edition


I love getting ready for work, it's the one thing that sets my mood for the day. I tend to prepare what makeup I'm going to wear the night before because I hate not evenly using all my products (I have to rotate them and if I don't prepare I find myself in a safety net that I don't want to get out of). I am also daring, even at work, when it comes to lipstick. I feel as long as it is not a green or blue lipstick and I balance the dark, vampy berry with a nude eye then I can get away with it for the office. However in this post I'm going to be talking about products that I do tend to fall back on when I want a makeup look that I know is going to work with anything I'm going to wear and that I don't need to touch up a lot.


I haven't owned the Charlotte Tilbury magic foundation for long but what I can say about it is that I love it for the daytime and especially for the office. It is light weight, high in coverage and gives a healthy glow on the skin. I will be doing a more in-depth review on this foundation in the next few weeks so keep your eye out for that!
I know I keep hammering on about Charlotte Tilbury matte revolution lipsticks but they. are. seriously. soo. good. !! I just can't get enough of them. A good shade to look professional is Bond Girl which I don't nearly use as much as I should. To prep my eye lids I like to use the Maybelline leather effect creme eyeshadow in Creamy Beige which I sometime use on it's own as well when I'm short on time in the morning.


I'm a little cheeky putting this Soap & Glory palette into my post as it was a Christmas limited edition but if you do/can get this I highly recommend as the colours are so pretty ranging from bronzes to berries and browns to creams it's definitely a palette I have been grabbing a lot the past few weeks. The texture of the shadows is lovely and soft, making it easy to blend. There are two matte shades which are perfect blending shades and the glitters are not super glittery that it looks like you are on a rave making it perfect for the daytime and especially for work.
When I'm not blending eyeshadow colours I have been putting Maybelline Creamy Beige all over my lids and tight lining my upper lash line with the Soap & Glory smoulder kohl eyeliner in black which makes my eyes look lovely and big and makes my lashes look thicker than what they are. Again there is no surprise that the Rimmel super curler is in this post as it give such lovely lifted curled lashes without a eyelash curler making getting ready in the morning a little bit quicker. Another quick trick I've been doing is using a creme blusher like the Clinque chubby stick blusher in amp'd up apple. I blend it in with my fingers and it gives a nice warm glow to the cheeks.

There you have it, my little snap shot at the makeup I wear to work. What are some of your favourite products to wear to work?


  1. Bond Girl looks gorgeous! This keeps popping up everywhere lately and I need to get my hands on it. I would love to see the review on the Magic foundation, I'm torn between getting that or the Wonder foundation! Great post :)

    1. Bond Girl is a fabulous colour that goes with any make up look. I will definitely do a review on the magic foundation! I want to try the wonder foundation as well!
