Weekly Work Look #1: Dreaming of the Beach
Hey everyone. So today I thought i'd introduce a new series called "Weekly Work Look"! I asked on twitter about whether you guys would like to see a series of neutral looks suitable for work and I got an amazing response! I guess ya'll like neutrals!
I know its easy to get stuck in a rut with make up. I'm pretty good at rotating my stash and using different things, often doing a different look for work a week so I can experiment and try out all the neutrals I own. But I've been in ruts before where you get stuck with one look and an obscene amount of make up which never gets used...so hopefully something in this series will inspire you to shake the rut and pull out some of your older unloved palettes!
So this week's look is inspired by the pants weather England seems to have again. Spring lasted for all of two days and now we are back to torrential rain and gloomy skies. I for one am dreaming of the day I can ditch my winter coat and boots and start wearing pretty dresses and go to the beach! So I whacked out my Sleek Storm palette (which is an fav of mine! So so good!) The storm palette has a nice range of sandy hues, perfect for a look that is dreaming of beautiful Caribbean beaches while sitting in an office in rainy ol' England!
Hope you enjoy :)
So I hope you liked it and will maybe even pull out your own Storm palette and try something similar. I used the colours that are marked above to create a simple sandy look that really brightens the eye and definitely dreams of summer. I then added some pencil eyeliner to create a wing. I myself always add winged liner but if its not part of your normal routine then thats ok! I used pencil as I sometimes think normal liquid liner can be too harsh, especially with softer looks like this. I used the Urban Decay 24/7 pencil liner and then "set" it with the black shade from the storm palette. I then added a pop of colour with an orange lipstick to really bring the beachy look together!
I'd love some requests for perhaps palettes that you own that you would like to see a weekly work look from or something else! I already have one (Lazy girl make up!) which I'm going to work on for next week. Hope you like this new series!
What has been your work make up this week? I'd love to know!
