What makeup is everyone wearing today?

and under all this I am wearing Neutrogena Pure and Free Liquid Sunblock SPF 50

 

So c'mon now...confess!

Re: What are you wearing today?

Thank you! The blush is really a true "blush" and not a swipe of color on the face. It took some getting use to! I am used to more color, this is more glow. I love it now, but I had to learn how to correctly do it. This Afrique palettes is becoming one of my more favorite ones. I've only used it 3 times. Smiley Happy It's a great work appropriate look- not too flashy for my very conservative workplace, but still put together. I'm really loving it. And it's simple. It's not a real "palette" to me; there are not alot of choices- 5 colors; I use 4 of them today. It's kinda fool proof. I've been recommending it to everyone! 

Re: What are you wearing today?

What does a true blush mean?  I love it!  I have an extremely EXTREMELY laid back work environment for an office.  I am generally one of the best (or only) dressed up people. I'm not kidding, if I wear a teensy bit of make up, people notice! I can't imagine what people would think of some of my bold looks, they would probably be shocked!

Re: What are you wearing today?

I guess True Blush is an actual look of you blushing versus a pat of color that is applied to your face. This blush blends right on in, and just looks like a luminous actual blush. 

 

I work in the financial industry so we're pretty conservative; we actually have rules on makeup, wearing socks... things like that. Smiley Happy I'm supposed to be an example, so I try to always keep it ultra professional when I'm in the office. When we have casual days- like Friday's in the summer, I let my hair down a little, but never over the top. Smiley Happy I can't buy the Electric Palette, or even Siren which I think I want because it would never get used during the week. 

Re: What are you wearing today?

Hmmmm yeah.  Sometimes I wished I worked at a more conservative place. Today I'm dressed down, shorts and cotton tee, no make up.  But if I even wear a skirt I stand out and people ask me if I'm going somewhere. Uhm, to the kitchen and then back to my desk? I have seen looks from Siren that don't seem over the top, might take a bit of blending. 

 

What are the make up rules??

Re: What are you wearing today?

Our makeup rules are that we always have "tasteful" "non distracting" and "Business Professional" makeup, for women and men at all times. Smiley Happy It's frowned upon to wear anything bright; from lipstick, to nail polish and we are also not allowed to wear two hoops in our ears. So if you have a second piercing, you have to have a stud in it at work. Cartalage piercings have to be covered up. No facial or mouth (toungue) piercings. Men have to wear socks at all times. Women are not allowed to wear shoes that "flop"; that would include flip flops, or sandals without a back. No shirts that do not cover your shoulders for women. Men must wear sleeves. Tattoos must always be covered- by clothing, or makeup. (That one is a bit more relaxed in my division- we're IT, most of us are tatted up) I'm sure I'm missing something.  I work in senior leadership, so I manage other managers who then manage staffs; I'm an officier in the company so the rules double apply to me. (it's a little ridiculous sometimes actually) This is the reason I have a million neutral palettes; I have to keep it pretty neutral, pinks, browns, beige- sometimes a little pop of purple, gold. But I can't do a full purple and blue eye like I did yesterday; I'd have to blend the heck out of the blue. 

 

So I keep my work looks pretty classic and never try to push the envelope. For a while in my career, I didn't wear makeup, and then my mentor told me why it was important for me to look the part considering how young I was when I was promoted to my previous role, so I took it seriously and updated the clothing and makeup looks. I sometimes wish Icould wear shorts or even flip flops to work. Not so much here. 

Re: What are you wearing today?

Wow, those are definitely a lot of rules.  Understandable, though.  My company has a warehouse and offices.  Whenever I go into the warehouse, I need closed toed shoes.  I keep a pair of slip ons at my desk if I wore sandals that day. It's a food safety/general safety thing.  Other than that, no rules.

Re: What are you wearing today?

I'mna just need you to look up into the light, ok?

Smiley Very Happy

 

Seriously tho, this is ON POINT! You're gorgeous.

Re: What are you wearing today?

HA! lol! Thank you! I do love the eye palette! 

Re: What are you wearing today?

This is my not-much-makeup look. I've got sore eyes and bags underneath because I've been crying a lot. (Just had to put to sleep our 15-year-old cat.) Smiley Sad So no eyeliner or mascara at all!

 

I used the recipe for Milk Chocolate in the TF Chocolate Bar. The Tarte blush is Flush color. The Buxom lipstick is Mistress. I forgot to put the TF Milk Chocolate bronzer in the product picture. No foundation used.

 

I hope everyone had a nice 4th of July.

Hugs to you. 

Re: What are you wearing today?

I'm so sorry to hear about your cat, I've had some pretty tragic experiences when it comes to my cats, and now the last one I had after a very long time of not owning a cat got stolen this March. 

Very beautiful look, you always look so elegant from the pictures I've seen of you. 

Re: What are you wearing today?

Thanks Blackwhiskey. I'm sorry to hear about your cat getting stolen. I had one years ago that I'm sure was stolen--he was super outgoing and would approach all sorts of strangers and had a fun and quirky personality. I still miss him.

Re: What are you wearing today?

So sorry for your loss Smiley Sad You look very beautiful.

Re: What are you wearing today?

You look lovely Smiley Happy  Our family's condolences for your cat though, they are true companions. 

Re: What are you wearing today?

You are stunning, as always.

 

I don't even have the right words for the loss of your kitty. Just virtual hugs. Heart

Re: What are you wearing today?

i'm so sorry about your kitty. i had to put down my 14-yr-old dog last october and i'm still reeling. i feel your pain.

but you look gorgeous, seriously. i LOVE the browns on your eyes. very alluring. and your skin is unreal, obviously. i really like eyeshadow looks without mascara or liner. it can look so natural yet striking--which how you appear here. beautiful.

Re: What are you wearing today?

Thanks Jemly. So sorry to hear about your dog. It does take a long time to work through the grief.

 

I also like eye makeup with just shadow sometimes. I know that it can look "incomplete" to some people, but I think that sometimes, just a little color without going all out looks fine too.

Re: What are you wearing today?

Oh, no, I'm so sorry about your kitty. I have two boy kitties and I'm a total pet lover, so I understand. Smiley Sad Take as much time as you need to grieve.

 

That said, I think you look very elegant -- especially with that necklace, which I really, really love! Your eyes look soft and soulful and the natural lip is very pretty. Goes with your perfect skin!

Re: What are you wearing today?

Thanks LariTheLoud. We used to have two boy cats (our first set of cats). They can be a handful, especially when dominance/territorial issues come up periodically.

 

BTW, I like your new Coach bag.

Re: What are you wearing today?

Sorry about your cat.  You look beautiful as always.

Re: What are you wearing today?

Ohhhhhhh, I just got choked up.  I'm so very sorry.  Kitties are family and that must hurt so much.  Big hugs! Smiley Sad  ouch!  You have beautiful sad eyes although that's probably no consolationSmiley Sad   That's a pretty awesome lifespan for a kitty though.
