Everyday Makeup Routine for Work

Not only do we have to pick out the right work outfit, but we also have to get our faces and hair in order. I like to change up my everyday makeup routine for work depending on the season. Since I live in Southern California where it is pretty much sunny all year round, I only switch up my routine during the holidays.

I feel like a change in my everyday look is perfect for this time of the year. If you do not know by now, I am a very simple person with makeup and I love a natural makeup look. My winter everyday makeup routine for work …or any other occasion is perfect for on the go mornings and beginners. It’s super simple and very easy. I only make a few changes to my routine, just to add a little pop of something new and different.

Everyday Makeup Routine for work

I think it is so important to change up your everyday makeup routine between the seasons, especially your face makeup. Different products are better in certain climates. For example, you may want to use a lighter foundation for the summertime because of the heat and humidity, but during the winter you might want something a little hydrating and adds a little more coverage.

Foundation & Concealer

I LOVE using a nice light concealer during the winter time. Because I like the way my skin looks, I avoid foundation as much as I can. Yes, my everyday makeup routine for work is basically just concealer. I like using products that are not as heavy but is still able to cover up some blemishes and redness. Personally, I only use concealer because I like to show some of my natural skin. Concealer is still able to cover things up, but I feel like it is lighter than most foundations and my skin can breathe.

My favorite concealer is the Tarte Rainforest of the Sea. This is a very lightweight concealer, which I love. I don’t mind showing my natural skin and I really love the light feeling on my face. I use shade Tan or Tan Medium For my everyday makeup routine for work and winter time, I really like a natural look. This concealer is great for an everyday look.

Instead of concealer you can always use foundation or just a tinted moisturizer. What ever you feel comfortable with is totally acceptable!

But of course, there are some days when I want to use something with more coverage. Sometimes the winter weather can cause more redness. During these days, I like to use the It Cosmetics Foundation. Even though this foundation is full coverage, it doesn’t feel heavy on the skin. I love it because it blends very well, looks natural, and it doesn’t break me out. Because I tend to use this product only in the winter, I usually get one shade lighter than what I normally would use.

Translucent powder

I think it is really important to set your face makeup with some powder. I find that translucent powder helps keeps my makeup set for longer periods of time. For an everyday makeup routine for work, I personally use this one by e.l.f. cosmetics. But when I’m feeling fancier, I like to use the Laura Mercier one. Both of these transluenct powders are great for an everyday routine for work!

Bronzer

Give your face a nice warm glow with some Bronzer. I love the Too Faced one because it’s a nice warm color and it’s more matte. I am not a fan of extremely shimmery bronzer because I feel like I look better with added warmth rather than excess highlight. Go with what you look best in! If shimmer is your thing, rock it! On the days that I choose a shimmery bronzer, this one by NARS is so pretty.

Blush

Blush adds an extra bit of color to your face. I personally only use blush for special occasions because I have naturally rosy cheeks and I don’t typically use a full coverage foundation. But I know so many people who include blush in their everyday makeup routine for work. I feel like blush not only add color, but help create a more romantic and girly look. My favorite is by NARS.

Eyes

When I do my eyes, my everyday makeup routine for work is actually very simple. I personally just apply my false lashes and I’m all set. If I want to look a little more put together, then I will add a natural smokey eye.

Lashes

I am either wearing lash extension or falsies. I have really short and stubby lashes where even mascara doesn’t help. So I really like having lashes that you can see. For my everyday makeup look, I just put on falsies if I don’t have any extensions.

If you are blessed with beautiful long lashes. Curl them and put on your favorite mascara! I’m so jealous of people who are able to just use mascara!

Eye Shadow

I love a natural smokey eye for when I’m feeling fancy. I take some matte brown shadow and some gold shadow to create a neutral smokey eye. Typically, my everyday makeup routine for work does not involve eye shadow. But if you want to, a natural smokey eye is just the thing to make your eyes pop, yet not too much for the office.

Brows

I always do my brows, no matter what! Doing your brows is a great way to frame your face with little makeup. As you already know, I love a more natural look, so my brows are not super structured or crazy. They just look more filled. For my everyday makeup look for work, I like to use a  pencil. This pencil is great because it’s easily blendable, and you are able to get filled in brows in no time. After my pencil, I like to use a brow gel which holds up through the entire day. This product is on the pricy side, but it’s totally worth it. I use it every day!

Lips

I love a fun holiday lip color for the winter time. I think this is a fun element for your everyday makeup routine for work. Even if no one can see them, add some color to make YOU feel great! A nice berry or mauve type color is perfect for the winter season. I have been really into lip crayons instead of lipstick recently because I like how much more hydrating they are. I think these are really great options for a more everyday look, but if red is your color, then go for it!

Don’t forget to line your lips before applying lipstick. I don’t go crazy with lipliner. I really only use liner just to keep my lipstick from running all over the place.
