Because of the Coronavirus pandemic, many of us have been working from home for a couple of weeks now. Although we might be in the comfort of our home, it doesn't mean that we can forget about looking presentable altogether. Yes, it can be challenging to get out of your cozy sweatpants and ratty T-shirt, but we've still got to work; so why not feel good about it?
Luckily, this can easily be done with a quick makeup look. You'll feel great about yourself in less than 5 minutes and just in time for all those video calls we all have.
For your makeup look, make sure to hide those dark bags underneath your eyes. We know you are guilty of staying up late trying to binge-watch your favorite shows or movies since you won't be going anywhere, anytime soon. Brighten up your eyes with concealer and make yourself look lively because, believe me, those dark bags will stand out on camera.
It isn't easy to wake up in the mornings when you know that turning on your computer or laptop is the only thing that you have to do to be at work. Your bed seems more enticing, and trying to get five more minutes of sleep is becoming a habit. Before you know it, work is starting, and then you'll be grappling for a quick fix. If you don't want to look like you just got out of the bed, what you need is mascara to widen those squinting eyes. With more volume on your lashes, you'll be looking fresh in the mornings.
Most conference calls won't require you to wear full-blown makeup. The quick makeup look you're going for should be natural and more subtle. Remember that you need to look professional and not look like you're going to a party. You can use nude eyeshadows and softer color palettes as opposed to darker eyeshadows. This is because too much eye makeup can be overwhelming.
You don't want to look pale during your calls. Low-quality cameras often make you look more haggard, so add a bit of blush to your cheeks. Look alive and give your face some definition. Rosy cheeks will give off the right vibe, and because you won't have any time for contouring, this is the best way to add depth to your look.
For many women, filling in their eyebrows is an absolute must. They can forget their eye shadows or mascara but never their eyebrows. And we can't blame them since eyebrows are also responsible for helping frame your face. It can bring the whole look together. So, make sure to clearly define your brows without overdoing it.
Pick the Right Lipstick
Since you are mostly at home, experiment with your lipsticks. There isn't anything wrong with picking stronger shades like Red's or Purples. If you're looking for a more natural elegant look, nude and pink hues look better and would create a more mellow vibe. At Shade M Beauty, we have a shade for every look and vibe you're going for. We recommend trying Lila, a subtle shade of pink perfect for that summer feeling while working at home.
