So, you’ve been invited to a big fancy work event. What should you wear? What kind of a hairstyle is appropriate? Does makeup look professional? Okay, you’re nervous.
Take a deep breath, I have your back. First, wear a dress and high heels, but keep it polite. Second, you can’t go wrong with soft waves in your hair. And finally, I have put together some tips for the perfect airbrushed makeup look for your special event.
If you’re not already using spray on makeup, jump on the bandwagon. It’s the best way to create a subtle, yet flawless face, that will last you through the night and give you a confidence-boost. If you’ve purchased a set already, let’s see how to create a professional, stunning face.
Relax and Breathe
My first suggestion is to apply a pleasant and calming face mask. Not only will this ensure your face is moisturized, but you will feel fresh and ready to rock!
Apply the mask and relax a little. Spend at least 10 minutes allowing everything to sink in. Rinse it off, and blot any access off with a fresh cotton pad.
Set Up For Success
By setting up for success, we mean both your work event and your appearance while attending it.
Apply a primer all over your face. It will give you an even base for your spray on makeup, as well as allowing it to stay a little longer. My suggestion is the Rock Candy Beauty setting spray . Along with setting your look once you apply it, it doubles as a primer.
Foundation, blush, and highlight
When it comes to your complexion, do your makeup as you would for any other event.
Add three to four drops of foundation to your gun; for a bit of extra shine, you might use satin finish instead of matte. Glide over your face using circular movements. My suggestion is Rock Candy Beauty No Filter 4K Foundation. A large variety of shades are on offer, so you will definitely find what you are looking for.
Then add two to three drops of blush to your gun. Moving from the base of your cheek flow up to your hairline to make your features pop.
When you’re highlighting, go easy. A light mist of a light highlighter of a rosy shade will suffice. Highlight your nose, jawline, and forehead. Don’t make it overpowering. Highlighting is meant to give you more definition, so don’t go crazy – after all, it’s a business event.
You want to look fabulous while going for a more natural look. Looks such as smokey eyes will not suit a work event.
My suggestion is to go with a basic eyeliner, a light eyeshadow and mascara. A subtle color such as peach or rose pink will look great but not too in-your-face.
Go for a similar approach as with the eyes. Blood orange or deep purple won’t fly. We are professionals, right? I would go for a dusty pink or a more subtle shade of red.
Set It Up
By using a setting spray, you allow your work event makeup to last a little longer! Apply a mist of your chosen setting spray to hold your professional natural look in place!
If you don’t have a chosen one, check out the Rock Candy Beauty setting spray which is filled with natural ingredients to hold your look and take care of your face.
You’ve Got This
My suggestions are based on my personal opinion. A work event is for networking and chatting with your employers. If you apply wild colors, they will become the focal point of every conversation. On the other hand, going for a soft look will ensure you look amazing, but not like you tried too hard.
When it comes to my product suggestions, they are all from Rock Candy Beauty, and for a good reason. This small brand is taking the makeup industry by storm. With the 100% natural ingredients, they will take care of your skin from the outside in, allowing you to ditch the chemical-related worries and feel your best.
All that is left now is to relax and enjoy. After all, it’s just an event. Rock it.
