A good foundation and concealer duo
A foundation that has good coverage can not only help your skin look nice and even, but also can help to cover up and conceal any type of imperfection or marks that may be on your skin and can help to ensure you stay looking flawless no matter what time of the day it is. Some of the markers for the types of foundations to go for are something that is full coverage with a natural finish to ensure that the foundation does not look caked on. Oil-free foundations can also ensure that you don’t get shiny or oily by the end of the day.
A powder foundation or a pressed powder
This is one of the best products that you can keep in your drawer at your office. A powder foundation is lighter on the skin than a normal liquid foundation and is easier to use. It does provide a little bit of coverage, just enough to even out the complexion and prevent you from looking dull; however, it is not so much coverage so as to look like you have a hundred layers of makeup on. It can also help to mattify the skin, which is always something that people need when they have long wear times of products and can be amplified for people with oily skin.
This is another excellent product to have on hand for oily skin tones and can help to reduce the shine from the face and prevent it from looking greasy and shiny. Blotting sheets can help keep your makeup in place for longer and can ensure it stays looking freshly applied throughout the day.
A good quality lip balm
There is nothing more annoying than a dried lip. It feels bad and if left alone long enough can start bleeding and be quite painful. Rather than looking around and asking everyone for their chapstick, keep a spare one in the office desk.
A bottle of hand cream
This may sound like an odd item to put in your office locker but is definitely one that you will be thankful for. Hand creams can add moisture back into your arms and help them feel softer, especially if they feel rough or dry. Not only do they moisturize the hands, but they can help rejuvenate your mind and mood due to the beautiful smell that most hand creams are fragranced with.
Your favorite lipstick
All of us have that one lipstick that never fails us. Whether it is a red, a nude or a pink, keep a tube of your favorite lipstick in your office drawer for a quick touch up or if you need to re-apply your lipstick after a meal.
A bottle of dry shampoo
Keep a bottle of dry shampoo at hand in your office desk at all times. Not only can it help save you from a bad hair day and fix oily, limp hair by absorbing all the oils from the scalp, but also ensure that your hair looks and smells amazing at all times. Just ensure that the dry shampoo does not leave a white cast behind when brushed out.
Nail polish remover pads
There is nothing worse than a peeling manicure. They can ruin your look and make you look unkempt and unpolished. Keeping a good nail polish remover pad handy at the office can ensure that the nails look beautiful. (Pro tip, keep a gel nail polish and a LED lamp that can cure the nail polish and harden it at just a few seconds’ time and make your nails look professionally done.)
A bottle of deodorant
After a long day at work, knowing you smell good can not only make you feel better, but also can help provide you with mood uplifting benefits.
