If you’re like us, you could use those extra five minutes to snuggle up in bed. But when there’s a certain expectation of how you should look when you walk through your office doors, how’s a girl to compromise between sleep and beauty? Stress no more—we’re here to help! Since we believe everybody deserves to press snooze without having to sacrifice their appearance, we’ve put together four of our favorite office-ready makeup looks using no more than three makeup products each. The result? A gorgeous, bright-eyed visage that doesn’t take forever to create. So, hit snooze, enjoy those few extra minutes of sleep, then scroll below to learn how to make the most of your complexion with different combinations of foundation, highlighter, lipstick, eyebrow makeup, and more.
Models are known for their dewy skin that glows oh-so-subtly in the right light. Pair it with a perky peachy-pink pout and you have a natural-looking, office-ready makeup look that you can’t go wrong with.
What you’ll need:
L’Oréal Paris True Match™ Lumi Glotion Natural Glow Enhancer
L’Oréal Paris True Match™ Lumi Glow Amour Glow Boosting Drops
L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Shine Lipstick in Shining Peach
Get the look by following these simple steps:
Step 1: Apply glotion. Don’t worry about conducting a full skin care routine. With our highlighter lotion (a.k.a. glotion), a skin care-meets-face makeup hybrid, you can save time, gain sleep, and look dewier than ever. For best results, squeeze some onto a makeup blender, like the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Blend Artist Foundation Blender, and blend it onto skin.
Step 2: Get glow-y. To take your model-off-duty look to the next level, squeeze a few highlighter drops onto your makeup blender and stipple it across your cheekbones, down the bridge of your nose, and in the inner corners of your eyes.
Step 3: Finish with lipstick. Instead of reaching for a heavy matte formula, stay loyal to the light model-off-duty look with a just-been-kissed shiny lipstick in a peach shade.
There’s nothing like a little contrast to create a head-turning, office-ready makeup look. Ahead we teach you how to keep it low-key while accentuating all your best facial features.
L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Glow Foundation
L’Oréal Paris True Match™ Lumi Glow Nude Highlighter Palette
L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Matte Lipstick in Matte-ly In Love
Step 1: Apply foundation. Embrace a dewy, glowing face with a radiant finish foundation. Simply apply some of the face makeup onto a makeup blender and buff it onto your face for airy, radiant coverage.
Step 2: Get your glow on. Define your bone structure with a little strobing using a sheer highlighter palette. Use a fluffy, angled highlighter brush to apply the color of your choice to your cheekbones, brow bones, and bridge of your nose. Be sure to blend your highlighter out so that it looks like light reflecting off your skin instead of product layered on top of it.
Not really feeling face makeup right now? No worries! With the right eye makeup and lip color, you’ll be able to create a foundation-free, office-appropriate makeup look in no time.
L’Oréal Paris Brow Stylist Boost & Set Brow Mascara
L’Oréal Paris Brow Stylist Brow Raiser Highlighter Duo
L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Shine Lipstick in Glossy Fawn
Step 1: Sculpt your brows. No, we’re not talking the super-sleek brows that circulate your favorite social media sites—instead, we’re eluding to the gorgeous arches that are seen strutting down the runway and sidewalks of everyday life. In other words, bold and beautiful while still looking totally natural. To get the look, brush your brows with brow mascara up and over, following the pattern of your brow growth. Next, highlight the underside of your brows using a highlighter to help frame your face.
Step 2: Punch up your pout. Keep the natural look going with a sheer, glossy nude lipstick.
Oh, you know the one. When poreless skin meets bright doe eyes, it’s safe to say you’ll walk into your office with everyone taking notice.
L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro Matte Lock Makeup Primer
L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Last Waterproof Pencil Eyeliner in Nude
L’Oréal Paris Voluminous Lash Paradise Mascara
Step 1: Apply makeup primer. Primer, although known for its ability to elongate makeup wear, can also be worn alone for a poreless, no makeup, makeup look. So, smooth some matte primer on and skip out on any other face makeup.
Step 2: Make your eyes pop. Nope, we’re not talking loads of eyeshadow, eyeliner, and mascara. Instead, trace your waterline using a nude eyeliner pencil to create the appearance of bigger eyes. Top them off with a quick coat of voluminous mascara and head to the office with time to spare.
