FOTD: Office Days

As a few of you know from chatting on Twitter, I started a new job on Monday, I'm just temping for my Mum's boss to help him out for a few weeks with some office work down near Manchester. It's a lot of travelling (around three hours driving per day) and pretty boring work, but it gets some pennies for me so I'm not complaining.
I've never worked in an office before, so I spent Sunday evening panicking about what I had that was suitable to wear, without giving a thought to my make-up! By the time Monday morning rolled around, I was late (typical!) and had to quickly come up with something to make myself look presentable. This is what I ended up with.

(Products in bold link through to my reviews) I started off with Benefit's The POREfessional, then used Boots Natural Collection Shine Away Foundation in shade 'Porcelain' as I wasn't sure what the office would be like and I didn't want my make-up to have melted off entirely by lunchtime if it was warm. I used Collection's Lasting Perfection Concealer to cover a couple of blemishes, and Natural Collection Blusher in shade 'Sugar Plum', which I bought on a whim a couple of weeks back and will be reviewing soon. I set this with Collection's Pressed Powder. I filled in my brows with Collection's Supersoft Kohl Pencil in '02 Birdy Song'. I then used ELF's Eye Primer under 'Verve' and 'Suspect' from Urban Decay's Naked2 Palette on my eyes, and finished off the look with Soap&Glory's Thick&Fast mascara, which is definitely one of my favourites.

What do you think? If you work in an office, what make-up do you wear?



  1. I think you created a perfect look for an office, your make-up looks flawless, like you're hardly wearing any! x

    1. Awww thank you! It's unusual for me because I usually prefer to be a bit more adventurous! Haha xo

  2. Lovely makeup! I love your eye shadow especially! xo

  3. Very natural look, I like! I STILL don't have a Naked palette. I really think I might try to convince myself to get one.
