Working Day Makeup Routine

by - 9:00:00 AM

Hey guys,

how I wrote in my latest post (Loyk Fantastic Beauty Box - if you've missed it, check it out here) I started in new job last week, so I have been busy since then. I need to find a balance between work and blog, which I've already mentioned, but what I'm trying to say.. Because of time consuming work my daily makeup routine had to change. In my morninh shifts I have to be there at 6:45 am, so I'm pretty sure that everyone understands that if I shouls choose between waking up at 5:30 and having no makeup day or waking up at 4:45 am and having full face glam day, I rather go with the first option. So how my no makeup makup day routing looks like? Keep on reading.


Because my skin is not perfect and I have some blemishes and scars, I need to cover them. This is my old time grammar school trick - using Acnecolor in light. This is pharmacy concealer, because it promise coverage and speeding process in healing blemishes. I don't see the speeding process though, but I really like the coverage and shade. It blends with my skin tone perfectly, so at the end it looks like I don't have anything on my face. If I don't have Acnecolor near to me, I use Maybelline Age Rewind concealer. After covering my red spots I always powder my face. This Rimmel Stay Matte powder mattify my face and gives a little bit of coverage, so my face looks smooth and concealed without using foundation. I don't have time for perfect brows, but I can't leave the house without them, so I always used this chunky brow pencil from Catrice. I really like the shade, because it has ashy undertone. I fill my brows and I'm ready to go. Almost … I love eyeshadows, but I can't do a simple one color look (I always ended it up with mixture of 6-10 shades, which takes some time to blend), so I don't use them. Only what I do is mascara, right now I'm using this Maybelline Lash Sensational. I'm planning a review on this, but still can't decide if I love it or hate it. 11 months from the year I'm pale and have "vomitting" face how my mom says, so I always need to add some life to my cheeks. I don't have time to contour and put a blush, so I use Benefit Dallas, which works like blush and contouring shade. Easy peasy. To finish the look I use regular lip balm, or if I want something "better", I use this Butter Gloss from NYX which is my all time favorite lip gloss. And voilà, I'm ready to go. This usually takes me 10 minutes.

How does your working day makeup routine look like?

Have a great day!

Love, Michell <3

  3. Sounds like a really simple routine! I wish mine was as simple, haha. I love wearing false lashes, but when I'm in a rush the Maybelline mascara is my go-to! :)

    1. Oh, you have no idea how much I miss false lashes. My natural lashes are like broom, so if I wasn't so lazy to wake up 10 min earlier, I would wear them. :)

  9. I try to keep my work makeup very minimal -- I'd rather sleep more. Haha! I love Benefit blushes, but don't own Dallas.
