Makeup Challenge : "Work Appropriate" Makeup

When I posted my Smokey Peacock tutorial, a fellow Zamboanga blogger (Raisie) left a comment that caught my attention. I've always wanted to do a "work appropriate" look that you could easily take to a night out after work hours.
Challenge (lol!) accepted!

  1. what eyelash curler are you using? :)

  2. Definitely digging that simple makeup routine for work dear :) Love it!

  3. I wish I could also apply liquid eyeliner all by myself.

  4. I never had time to do my makeup these days! Good thing I came up with this polished corporate look tutorial! Will try to do it tomorrow! Thanks for sharing.

  5. Jannie! I love this post! So useful for someone like me who doesn't know make-up basics. I don't really buy make-up. The make-ups I have are either won from giveaways or given. If you don't mind me asking, what are the must-have make-ups? Those essential ones that would really be used everyday. I'd have a job soon and I'd like to know which make-up and/or brushes to purchase. :)

  6. Simple yet elegant. Very pretty!!!


  7. for regular days, I rarely use eyeliners...especially liquid because I usually do not have time to check my make-up and I worry if I sweat, esp. on a hot day or out of the aircon room But I do reserve it for more special occasions or if we have visitors and it really does change the look at lot! Is the wet n wild eyeliner really waterproof?

  8. I love this makeup Jannie! It looks so natural!!! :) good thing for you you're back to making vid. tutorials na... I wanna start making vids again but I have no time :(
