everyday makeup

Face of the Day (FOTD) // Off to Work

Most days I work, I wear minimal makeup. That’s mostly because my job’s at a classy hammock shop frequented by tourists I’ll most likely never see again. Even so, I like to wear makeup, even if it’s just for myself. It’s not because I’m afraid of people seeing me without foundation or something; it’s just that makeup is fun, and it makes me feel girly and good about myself!

So, I thought I’d show you guys what I wear to work when I want a little more excitement in my everyday makeup routine. Here goes!

The look I went for was pretty simple, but I definitely spiced things up with some color on the lips. I love foundations that give a glow. Even in summer, I find that matte foundations just aren’t for me. I also love bright lip colors for the warmer months! Why not go for more daring pops of color when the weather is more upbeat and the outdoors seem so vivid? I say go for it!


Here’s a closer look at the highlight I’m wearing! I use it on the high points of my face like my nose, cheekbones, and cupid’s bow. I find it looks the most natural to use it where the sun would normally brighten my face.


Here’s a look at all the products I used:


Nars Sheer Glow in Punjab

Sonia Kashuk Hidden Agenda concealer in 07

NYC bronzer in Sunny

Tarte Amazonian Clay blush in Exposed

Rimmel Stay Matte powder in Translucent

Mac Mineralized Skin Finish in Soft and Gentle

Maybelline gel eyeliner in black

Wet n’ Wild eyeshadow in Brulee

Maybelline The Falsies mascara in Black Drama

Sephora pencil eyeliner (not sure of the shade except it’s brown, sorry!)

Urban Decay Primer Potion

Rimmel Apocalips in Stellar

Revlon eyelash curlers

I’d have to say the star of the look is the lipgloss. I’m in love with these new Rimmel lip products; they apply as a gloss, but fade as a stain, which is great for work, where I can’t always re-apply when needed.


Hope you enjoyed this FOTD. Let me know in the comments what you like to wear to work! What are your thoughts on lip colors for summer? Leave a comment or tweet me @butsarahsays!
