Every woman on the go knows that the key to nailing a flawless face is in using the right tools to get through each day. Here, we rounded up six of the most hardworking—but not hard to use!—products every career woman needs in her kikay kit:
1. Cushion Compact
Ever since cushion compacts blew up late last year, we’ve been hooked. Unlike traditional foundations, cushion compacts offer more skincare benefits and conveniently come with their own sponges to work the product into the skin. They’re long-wearing but always leave you looking fresh-faced and never flat.
2. Liquid Eyeliner
You never know who you’re going to face in a day, so it’s best to keep your makeup on point. Pick a budge-proof eyeliner that will keep your peepers defined all day long. No need to worry about touching up or mirror checks in between meetings!
The easiest way to brighten up your face is by swiping on a pretty lip color. For the office, rosy nudes and pinks will work best. But for big events at work, don’t be shy to pack on more color using brighter and deeper colors. For long-lasting lippies, line your lips first before filling them in with color. Blot with a piece of tissue, and you’re good to go.
4. Blush and highlighter
Lessen your bag’s clutter by carrying products that you can use in multiple ways. Swipe on a pretty iridescent pink blush on your cheeks that will add color and highlight to your face.
5. Brow mascara
The latest brow product from L’Oreal is nothing short of genius. Unlike traditional brow mascaras, this one has a flat tip that you can use to fill in and outline your brows first before brushing. How clever is that?
Trust us when we say that curling your lashes and applying a few coats of mascara will make a huge difference. It will define, lengthen, and volumize your lashes and really open up your eyes. The best part? The best ones aren’t necessarily the most expensive!
