Things are finally starting to look up. While we are still maintaining caution to avoid contracting the virus, offices and cinemas are slowly opening up with safety measures set in place. All those who have got the vaccine are ready to get back to the grind and after a two-year-long sabbatical from the office space, you should only go back to work in style. Makeup looks for the office space need to be sophisticated and fairly simple to create. They also need to stay put all day long and keep you looking fab throughout. We give you back-to-work makeup inspo that is sure to make you excited to be going to the office again.

Back-To-Office Makeup Ideas

Try your hand at one of these looks and make it your new signature beauty look for the workspace.

Soft & Smokey

This makeup look is one of our top choices for the workspace. It is minimalistic and will stay on all day long. Since kajal does get smokey towards the end of the day, this look is a step ahead as it creates a smokey effect that won’t wear down.

How To: Prep your lids with a brown tinted primer. Smudge kohl on your upper lash line and blur it out with a brush. Line your lower water lines finely with the same liner. You can even add a touch of bronze shimmer on your lids. Keep your lips nude and wear your base as desired.

Power Trip

We can’t avoid a bold lip even if we are wearing a mask while commuting. You can swipe on your lipstick when you reach the office or wear a transfer-proof lipstick that won’t budge even under a face mask.

How To: Build your base with a BB cream. Define your eyes with a metallic brown eyeliner pencil and wear mascara. Groom your brows with a gel and add blush to your cheeks. Swipe on a matte red lipstick.

Natural All The Way

If you lean towards that au naturel makeup aesthetic, try this rosy nude makeup look which offers elements of shine. 

How To: Opt for a sheer coverage base and apply a warm-toned matte pink eyeshadow all over your lids. Highlight the inner corners and lower lash lines with a highlighting shade of eyeshadow or pencil. Define the upper lash line with winged eyeliner and apply loads of mascara. Blend on a rose-hued blush and swipe on nude lipstick.

Draw with black kohl beneath the white eyeliner and connect it outside where the winged liner end. Wear loads of mascara.

Monochrome Date

Easy and chic, this makeup look will never fail to make an impact. It can be created in a jiffy and doesn’t require a high skill level to look good.
