Tawny, Pecan and Berry Reds

"Wearing too little can diminish your credibility as much as wearing too much" is an excerpt taken from Lois P. Frankel's book "Nice Girls Don't Get The Corner Office 101", where she talks about 'Make Up' and it sure fits right in with my work place.

For an everyday look I like to keep my skin/face as natural as possible with an even skin tone and un-chapped lips made possible by applying and re-applying lip gloss. If I can't get to the cup of Joe, then its mascara to the rescue to wake my eyes up.

Here is my detailed facial morning routine in 5 easy steps
Apply Loreal's Age Perfect Moisturizer right after shower
Dab and spread Aveda's concealer (shade : Pecan) under the eyes
5 dots of Estee Lauder's Double Wear (Tawny 05) concealer to spread all over my face.
Add Victoria Secret's Beauty Rush Mascara if needed
Finish it off with any of Victoria Secret's Beauty Rush Lip Gloss.

Let me know what your morning facial routine is and the products you use.

Hey Geeta- Thanks much for adding me to your list! :) Its super that you are so certain about the concealer you use. Its always trial and error for me and most of them end up looking awful!

Face Scrub [Avene], Face Wash [Biore], Moisturizer with SPF 15 [Neutregena], Strawberry Flavor Lip Balm [Body Shop] ... I don't use any make up!

I agree with the too-much/too-little comment - a little tackful make up makes it look like you care about your appearance, makes you look professional and tidy and well-dressed...

I have super sensitive skin ,so its just a lip balm, kajal and eyeliner for me .. how i wish i could really experiment with stuff..sigh !

Natasha November 12, 2010 at 8:18 PM  

I totally agree with the excerpt! My routine is something like this :
Face wash (Neutrogena), Moisturizer with SPF ( Neutrogena), Kajal (Good ol' lakme pencil from India:)), Lip Gloss (sheer from VS) and I'm done!

Sound Horn Please - Aveda is the first concealer I tried and worked. In fact they have very few shades.

Tanvii - Sweet, nice to know you don't use make up. I used to be like that, but a few are sneaking in with age.

Indie.Tea - Well said.

Bedazzled - As long as it works for you.

Natasha - Too bad, I don't use kajal. My eyes get so watery when I use it.

i keep it minimal at workplace - moisturizer for my skin, lip balm and kohl for my eyes..

Hey! I use a face-scrub (Lotus Herbals), face wash (Aroma Magic). I use a lip balm (Body Shop - strawberry flavour) and I usually don't wear make-up. Perhaps, just kajal (Cameleon or Lakme) and lip-gloss (ColorBar/Lakme) occasionally!!

It's just kajal and lipgloss/lipstick for me...my skin sweats like crazy under even the thinnest film of makeup. My essential routine involves taming the caterpillars!...if they're good, all else is good! heh heh!
