Let’s face it. Your makeup may contribute to the dollar amount in your paycheck. A recent study concluded that women who wear makeup to work make more money than women who choose not to wear it. It’s safe to assume that those who put effort into their appearance are perceived as people who put extra effort into their work.
Makeupandbeauty.com recently published an article on nine vital mistakes to avoid when applying makeup at the office. Are you guilty of any of the following offenses?
Ignoring the importance of proper lighting
If you apply makeup at work, there’s a good chance you have fluorescent light bulbs in the office. This kind of light is particularly unflattering and can even make you look sickly. If you’re fortunate enough to have a private office with a window, use that natural light, which will help you not to over apply. If no office window, try to seek out a bathroom with windows or a private conference room.
Saying yes to shimmer

Forgetting to fill in your brows
Define your arches, and you’ll look more groomed, polished, and professional.
