Beauty on the go Volume 2: Office Perks

The "Office Look"
With the weekend now long gone, we had a bit of fun in the office by experimenting with some make up looks! We had a go using palette 1 from the beauty on the go collection because it has a selection of natural nudes that are perfect to wear in the office but also a few pretty shimmers to lighten it up for a perky look.

How we created the Office Look:

Colour’s used


Base Colour: Swatch 3

Lids: Swatch 7 + 9 + 4

Lower lash line: Swatch 10

Lips: Swatch 12

Cheeks: Swatch 13

Step 1:

Apply a base colour over the entire lid area. We used a soft, pale cream from the palette (Swatch 3).

Step 2:

Apply a sheer, nude shade to the entire lid bringing it up to the socket line.

Step 3:

Next take a darker shade and apply along the crease, and blend well into the socket line. For this step we chose a shimmery, copper, brown (Swatch 9).

Step 4:

Take an eye shadow brush and dot a shimmery gold (we used swatch 4) to the center of the lid to add depth to the eyes.

Step 5:

Load an eyeliner brush with a powder brown eye shadow and line the outer corners of the lower lash line (for this step we used swatch 10). Next finish the eyes with a brown eyeliner, and a coat of mascara.

Step 6

Apply a natural blush to the cheeks. Try to apply it to the hollows of your cheek for a more defined look.

Step 7:

Using a lip brush, apply a nude gloss to the lips to finish the look.

Hope you liked our second beauty on the go look! Watch this space for our next beauty on the go look!
