I have begun wearing makeup to work. I acutally really like wearing it to work – I feel like it makes me look a little older, more professional, and a lot of my clients wear makeup so I feel like I should at least make the effort. Right now, I’m using the Makeup 4 Ever foundation I got for my wedding, and mixing it in a 2::1 ratio with my moisturizer. It’s still a bit itchy and heavy, so I’m trolling for suggestions.
I would really like a good tinted moisturizer, preferably one that costs less than $20. One that has sunscreen in it and doesn’t make my face itchy. Recommendations, please! I have used mineral powder in the past, which I also like, but I would love to save a step, since I wear moisturizer anyway.
I would also really like to know what to do with my face. Foundation/blush/powder is pretty much all I’ve got. I’m reluctant to fall down the rabbit hole of wearing eye makeup, but is there some kind of eye brightening powder that might be good? I have white eyeshadow, which I sometimes wear, but then it’s a little glaring and I have to add other makeup. Maybe a really pale nude color?
I also need more lipstick. I think that neutrals are good for court, but a couple of my coworkers wear pretty dark colors. Anyone have any thoughts on the matter? I think most glosses are too shiny – the courtroom is not a runway – but most lipstick-lipsticks are too matte and they get all over my teeth, so maybe a stain of some kind? I don’t know. Any ideas?
