Here is a simple 5 minute office makeup tutorial. You don’t have to use the same products I have used, you may use anything you want. This makeup tutorial is especially for people who are mostly working in office setting. Hope you like it.
Start by priming your eye lids.
Apply primer on lower lash line as well. Leave inner third of lower lash line.
Take any flesh coloured pencil for highlighting. You may also use a nude lip pencil. I don’t use white pencil because I find it a little hard for my skin tone. This shade is a little lighter than my skin tone. That’s why I use it as a highlighter.
Apply the nude eye pencil just below the arch of your eye brow.
Blend it with finger.
Apply the same pencil on the inner corner of your eye.
Bend it with finger.
Now take MAC Soft brown eye shadow..
and place it all over your lid..
and a little above the crease. This way you don’t have to worry about blending etc..
Now pick MAC twinks eye shadow with the same brush..
and place it all over your eye lid.
Now pick black eye shadow with a liner brush. You may use gel liner or pencil liner instead of black eye shadow. I feel eye shadow gives a little softer look for office makeup.
Line your upper lash line. Keep the eyeshadow closest to your lashline.
Like so. You can stop at this point. Apply mascara and your office eye makeup is done.
I’ll be doing a few more steps. Pick twinks on the tip of flat shader brush.
Just press it lightly on your lower lash line.
Stop at two third.
Now apply the flesh pencil on the inner third.
blend with finger.
Line your waterline with kajal (optional). You may use brown pencil as well.
Smudge kajal with finger.
Curl lashes and apply mascara.
Keep your blush and lipstick soft and non shimmery for office. Carry compact, kajal and lipstick with you for touch ups during the day.

I have used MAC chromagraphic pencil but you may use any nude lip pencil as well. Just make sure that it doesn’t go inside your eye. Beyu makes a nude lip pencil. It works just fine.
