Office Mates

All the beauty you need to keep desk-side

At work, beauty products can be just as important as project reports. So file these away – we gathered the must-haves that will keep you touched up all day. Click around and get ready for a newer, prettier 9-to-5.


Powder That Keeps You Glowing
in Harsh Light

Office lighting isn’t always kind – but you don’t have to look dull or washed out. Brush on this pressed formula for a soft-focus effect that makes pores seem to disappear (the same way photo filters work). You can wear it under your foundation to prime your skin, on top of makeup as a setting powder or alone for
a natural finish.


Lipstick That Lasts
Past Lunch

Unless you enjoy being a serial lipstick re-applier, you’ll want a product with color that lasts. (We’re talking from the first meeting of the day through your lunch sesh with the girls.) Along comes this velvety smooth matte lip cream that goes on like a fluffy mousse but dries to a bold intense matte that stays and stays.


Cheek & Lip Tint That Goes on Quick

Gotta love a two-in-one. (Less mess on your desk, right?) Keep this little bottle of wonder next to your computer – it’s a rose-tinted stain that adds an instant flush to both lips and cheeks. Great for touchups before a meeting for an I’ve-been-glowing-all-day effect.


Fragrance That Fits in Your Purse

This isn’t your typical pen. Use this fragrance spray pen and everyone will take note of you. It’s a fresh and floral mix of white water lily and white daffodil, with top notes of white amaryllis (a South African flower used for the first time in a scent).


Blotting Paper That Keeps Your Face Fresh

Deadlines got you working up a sweat? Totally normal. And no worries – just whip out one of these blotters, made from pulpe paper. You’ll be able to dab-dab-dab the evidence away. It’s a makeup artist secret for getting rid of excess oil and shine, and it doesn’t
erase your makeup.


Eyeliner That Doesn’t Melt Off
(Even Thru Tears)

Truth: Everyone has cried a little bit at work. Another truth: Nobody has to know when it happens to you. With good waterproof eyeliner, you’ll stay streak free and nobody will know you had a (totally momentary) meltdown. This CoverGirl choice has two shades that give you either a naked or smoky eye effect.


A Compact That Helps With Touch-Ups

This one’s an essential. The purse-sized brush and mirror close together into a convenient compact. So you can make sure your hair and office makeup are on point before you step into that big presentation.


Hand Cream That Will Keep You Smooth

Not to worry about that dry indoor air. Keep your skin hydrated with a hand cream that’s super concentrated and also healing. This one from Neutrogena dries really quickly. Aka: No greasy traces on your keyboard.


Hair Spray That Adds Instant Life

You worked hard on your hair in the morning – keep the style and lift even as the clock creeps close to 5 p.m. This spray helps limp locks by adding instant texture and volume. It’s made with basil flower, so it smells fresh, too.
