Eyeshadow (Light brown on the lid, shimmery cream up to the eyebrows, blended)
Eyebrow filler stuff

SoWhite Sat 19-Dec-15 19:22:07

False eyelashes everyday? Where to you work? Could not get away with those in my office.

PennyPants Sat 19-Dec-15 19:22:20

Mascara, lip gloss and blusher, about 2 minutes.
MUA and L'Oreal.

LoveMILbut Sat 19-Dec-15 19:22:32

Lipstick. Most days. About 20seconds application time!

Believeitornot Sat 19-Dec-15 19:22:32

I wear body shop primer, a dash of lily lilo minerals powder, body shop under eye concealer, blusher, eyeliner and mascara.

HeyMicky Sat 19-Dec-15 19:23:09

Tinted moisturiser, creme blush, mascara, tinted lip gloss. Takes about 5 mins. Brands vary.

I get my eyebrows threaded, and brows and lashes tinted so they don't need much daily help. Getting good skin definitely cuts down on the amount of makeup required.

SheGotAllDaMoves Sat 19-Dec-15 19:23:29

At the moment I still have a residual tan from October half term so;

Dior Glow Maximiser.
Guerlain bronzer.
Pop of Nars blusher.
Mascara ( various).
Lip gloss ( various).

This is the minimum. And takes 5/10 mins.

TaliZorah Sat 19-Dec-15 19:24:16

SoWhite in a school but on maternity. I've never had any employer mention my eyelashes, they're not massive so don't look really obvious

LoveMILbut Sat 19-Dec-15 19:24:50

TaliZorah shock wow!

eatmytoes888 Sat 19-Dec-15 19:25:10

Marks and Spencers Pur Minerals range.

For work:
1. Tinted moisturiser
2. 4in1 pressed make up compact
3. blusher
4. mascara
5. lipstick

For home: just the 4in1 compact. Makes me look alive. Which is hard to do sometimes!

time: 5/7 mins approx?

It's a natural look make up and doesn't feel heavy on my skin. I have used it for a few years now having always used the American Minerals make up. I can recommend it strongly. Comes off easily too.

TaliZorah Sat 19-Dec-15 19:29:26

SoWhite I prefer them to mascara, they really finish off a look. I'm lucky I've never worked anywhere with a conservative makeup policyv

SoWhite Sat 19-Dec-15 19:32:08

There isn't a make up policy as such, but it a workplace full of very high earning egos. I feel very self conscious in anything that isn't natural looking there, like I'm not being taken seriously enough to do the same job as them.

It is a great shame.

70isaLimitNotaTarget Sat 19-Dec-15 19:32:33

Daily - I give myself some eyebrows
ybf (Your Best Friend) brow pencil.

It's not that I'm a fantastic natural beauty, but I don't want to worry about my make-up at work.

namechangedtoday15 Sat 19-Dec-15 19:33:30

Rimmel foundation
Benefit cheek tint
W7 eyeshadow palette
Max factor mascara
Lancome Juicy Tubes

2 or 3 minutes. Tops

SparklyTinselTits Sat 19-Dec-15 19:33:47

Lily Lolo mineral powder foundation
Barry M brow palette
MAC gel eyeliner (think pin up look)
Some kind of Rimmel mascara (no idea which one off the top of my head!)
Bare Minerals warmth bronzer
Vaseline on my lips
If I'm going to work or out for the evening I use a MAC lip liner in either a dark berry shade or a true red, and MAC lipstick to match.

Judydreamsofhorses Sat 19-Dec-15 19:33:56

Smashbox face primer
Nars eye primer
YSL foundation
Mac blusher
Guerlain Meteorites
Nude eyeshadow, either from the Urban Decay Basics set, or an Estée Lauder one
Mascara - currently Bobbi Brown
Benefit Browzings
Lipstick - always red, have dozens, all different brands
May do black flicky eyeliner too, depending on time and what I'm wearing

Usually about five minutes, but if I'm going out, I'll do more interesting eye makeup and a lot of eyeliner.

Tinted moisturiser
Cream blush
Eye shadow
