Office Chic

By Julia Teen

It’s often said that natural, workplace-appropriate makeup is the hardest to pull off.  The wrong shade of lipstick or a swipe of kohl too thick can turn simple chic into WHOOPS…Disco.

Remember our post on grey shadow as the new neutral shade? ( Always a winner, but try these other day looks that’ll get you ahead in the office…


Sarah Chalke

Brown & gold

So simple.  So elegant!  Scrubs’ Sarah Chalke could be on her way to a boardroom meeting with her choc-rimmed eyes.  Simple gold accents in the inner corners help to liven this look up, as well as the subtlest sweeping of an apricot blush along her cheeks.



Kim Kardashian

Elegant face

Kim K works clean, fresh, skin paired with light gold eyeshadow lining the eyes and flattering lashes.  Yes, she’s gone OTT on them as usual, but the premise for an everyday look remains.



Emmy Rossum

Lip addition

Yep, so she could be going for a day at the beach.  Emmy Rossum’s cheeks and eyes are beautifully bare but what sets her apart from weekend casual to office professional is the hint of a pink lip.  A relaxed, flattering shade of pink upgrades any look to give a professional edge.



Teresa Palmer

Cheek sheen

Teresa P also rocks the au naturel face (and let’s be honest, most mornings this is all the effort we can muster up) but aside from the rich (hopefully faux!) tan she’s rocking, she’s also put in illuminator work. Sparkling cheeks don’t have to be saved for 5pm drinks – fresh, glowing skin is always face flattering and helps you to have an approachable, friendly look.
