A few months ago I already told you about my party make-up routine (see here) and today I will show you my ‘make-up routine for work’.
On above collage you see three photos of the beauty and make-up products that I have used to create my make-up for a day at work.

Step 1 : after showering, I cleanse my face with the Corine de Farme Micellar Water. I have been using this micellar water for some time now and I also used it during my at home facial which you could read here!
Step 2 : I use the Revitalift Filler Serum from L’Oréal. This serum is a good base as it gives your skin a smooth finish. After applying the serum I usually brush my teeth to give the serum time to set.
Step 3 : The next step is applying my daycream. I am currently using Revitalift Filler daycream from L’Oréal, which complements the serum.
Step 4 : I use the Estée Lauder Advanced Night Repair gel on my eyes. I am really satisfied with the product as you could read in this review.

Step 5 : I apply my MAC foundation (pro longwear nourishing waterproof foundation) with a brush to get an even effect. I haven’t been using this foundation very much as I am so fond of my Max Faxtor Face Finity lately. But anyway, this foundation is also very good… perhaps a bit too dark for my winter skin but I apply just a very thin layer as I don’t want to look too brown!
Step 6 : I brush the T. Leclerc Poudre Dermophile Translucide lightly over my face to matify my complexion. I really like this powder. It’s got a light texture and it’s nearly transparant. Unfortunately my pharmacists doesn’t sell it anymore. now I could order it online, but I recently bought another brand of which I will do a review later on!
Step 7 : I dab the Essence soo blush on the apple of my cheeks to add a slight pink glow. It’s the first time I bought a cream blush and I quite like the effect it gives! You can really dose how much you use and this colour gives a nice, healthy, natural glow.

Step 8 : I colour in my eyebrows just a tiny bit, as that frames my face. I use the eyebrow set from Mac (review). I have been using this nearly every day, ever since I bought it in June and still it isn’t finished! Talkin’ about getting your money’s worth 😉
Step 9 : For today’s look I use the eyeshadows from this MUA palette (which I got for free at my drugstore 🙂 !). For this look I went really natural :
- on my eyelid I used 2 colours from the lower row, which I blended really well (2nd from right and 2nd from left).
- just below my eyebrows and at the sides of my glabella I used the 4th colour from the top row as a highlighter
- as an eyeliner I used the 5th colour from the top row
- near my lower lashes I also used the 3rd colour from the top row
Step 10 : I curl my eyelashes and use several layers of my Rimmel Wake Me Up mascara (review) of which I am so satisfied! It really is a good mascara for a reasonable price.
Step 11 : To finish this natural look, I dabbed just a bit of vaseline on my lips to give them a nice shine and to nourish them.
On the photos below you can see the before-during-after shots! What do you think of this natural make-up? What is your make-up routine? Do tell in the comments!
