Make-up for Office and A Lunch Date in Between
I work in the IT industry and have 5 days a week working. And even though I have the weekends off, my friends always end up making plans for lunch on a weekday!!! Well yeah that’s something that happens to me very often and it leaves me either over made-up for office or under made-up for my lunch dates. Am sure many of you must have faced this situation and so today I am out with a solution that I myself religiously follow for days like these 🙂
Well, you see what I do is I do some defining make-up for the eyes and then play around with lipstick shades appropriate for a particular ocassion. So, in the morning I do a make-up that looks something like this…
What I have done, simply cleaned my face and applied a good moisturizer. I have used Garnier Body cocoon here. Alternatively, you could also use a tinted moisturizer over a concealer.
Following are the steps I followed to do up my eyes:
1. Lined my lower waterline with a nice, dark and a smudge proof kajal. Here I have used L’Oreal Pencil Perfect Self Advancing Eyeliner
2. Next, I have applied a black liquid liner from ELF over my kajal in order to lock it and prevent the kajal from smudging the whole day.
3. Next, I applied NYX Eyeshadow Base in Skin Tone and blended in over my lids i.e. From my lashline to the eye sockets. Optionally, you could also use some neutral eyeshadow like brown/beige/light pink.
4. Finally, I applied Colorbar Liquid Eye Liner in Black over my upper lashline.
My eyes look like this.
I finished off making the eye up by using some coats of Mascara…
Next, I concentrated on the lips and picked up a nudish shade and applied it generously. I used Maybelline Colorsensational Lipstick in Warm Me Up (235).
Finally, I finished off my make-up with a very light hand of Blush on the apple of my cheeks 🙂 For this I used StreetWear Blush in Pink Blossom.
VOILA! I was ready for office 🙂
Now, let’s get ready to go out for lunch!!! 😀
All I do is re-apply the blush. This gives a bit more flush to the cheeks and that gives a bit of a “going outy” look 😉
Next, I apply another coat of mascara. This I do to both my upper as well as lower lashes.
Finally, I wipe the morning’s lippy and re-apply a brighter shade of lipstick. This time I have used Colorbar’s Velvet Matte Lipstick in Addictive Magenta.
Here’s the look:
I have tied up my hair here, but you could leave it as you please 🙂
The products that I have used are as follows:
- L’Oreal Pencil Perfect Self Advancing Eyeliner
- ELF Liquid Eye Liner in Black
- NYX Eye Shadow Base in Skin Tone
- Colorbar Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner in Black
- Maybelline Colorsensatinal Lipstick in Warm Me Up
- Colorbar Velvet Matte Lipstick in Addictive Magenta
- Street Wear Blush in Pink Blossom
I forgot to include my NYX Eyeshadow base in the pic 🙁

LOL 😀 Thankoooosss Calissssss….. 🙂
i like your office makeup more … that is usually i go out all the time, morning and evening.. :))
you carry the addictive magenta too well, i tried but then chickened out cos it looked too bright on me .. :((
same here..I apply some nude gloss over it to tone it down..It looks pretty good and wearable that way!! 😀 😀 and BTW Good morning Naina!! 🙂 🙂
use a brown gloss or brownish lipstick on top of it. It’ll tone down. 🙂
morning cali :)) and rati :))
the Addictive Magenta is no doubt very bright… So the trick that I do is that instead of “applying” it on my lips, i do “dab-dab” on my lips and then rub the upper and lower lip together… this mellows the brightness but retains the color 🙂
U look gorgeous Suma..what a simple way to move from office to lunch date 🙂
why do u need 2 different black liquid liners? Is the FIRST ONE SAFE FOR WATERLINE, THAT’S WHY?
Yes u r right Monika… The first liner i.e. the ELF one is waterline safe.. The Colorbar one makes my eyes burn and water if applied on the waterline 🙁
:clap: :clap: :clap: :clap: very nice suma

looking great! i too do some litlle bit of make up-sake up for office but by the time when i reach office,i have to give a touch up again especially my hair,wearing helmet all my hair r here nd there,so the moment i enter into my office,i rush to washroom first,then i comb my hair other things r ok,only i have to comb my hair nd little bit of kajal again,i only apply lipstick nd kajal for office,nothing else as my skin is acne prone so i dont dare to use other things,some of colleagues do, like they use foundation,nd eye-shadows too,but i never.anyways u r looking really cute.take care.
Oh Yes!!! helmets can be a spoilsport 🙁
and sorr your skin is acne-prone… But you know if u use good quality ka eye shadows and stuff it wouldn’t break out your skin.. though honestly I dont know much about foundations… but yeah good eye shadows shouldn’t trouble your skin 🙂
all the best 😀

Love the whole look. I will definately try this out.
I love your skin.. How do you keep it blemish free and with no pores. its all glowing..
Please do tell me your daily regime from including name of cleanser, toner (if you use), moisturizer and also face packs that you use. Also tell what else do you do to keep your face looking young, fresh and blemish free. I would really appreciate all your help. I have trouble due to blemishes specially at the chin area and have large pores.
Thanks a lot for this look.
