More often than not, a pantsuit with an inherently masculine vibe demands a fiercely feminine eye and lip. But you have to be careful: Too much makeup at work is never a good thing. (And what you need is a polished look that will get you out the door in no time.) So here are three makeup looks to pair with your pantsuit.
1. Sharp-lined Eye and Bold Lip
Nothing says “humble superstar” like a precisely lined eye and audacious lip. Use a liquid liner, like CoverGirl LineBlast 24 Hour Eyeliner in Enduring Black, as close as possible to your top lashes in as skinny a line as you can draw. Then, apply two coats of lengthening formula mascara to the top lashes, like LashBlast Length Mascara, to add definition to your stare. Pair the look with minimal blush and a bold lip in a hot hue like Lip Perfection Lip Color in Divine.
2. Subtle Smoky Eye and Soft Lip
Sometimes, it’s all about the power eye and neutral lip combo. Leave black shadow for the weekend and opt for a gray-shaded lid using a mix of light- and medium-gray shades. Be sure to blend using a clean shadow brush for an office-appropriate smoky eye, and then pair it with a tinted balm like CoverGirl LipPerfection Jumbo Gloss Balm in Mauve Twist. Keep blush minimal for this look.
