Young Office Appropriate Makeup

Young Office Appropriate Makeup

Over the last two years I have become completely obsessed with makeup. I used to believe purses were a woman’s greatest accessory, but that quickly changed when I randomly found Jaclyn Hill on YouTube. Jaclyn is a makeup artist turned YouTube star from my hometown of Tampa, FL!

Makeup in the office can be tricky. Should you go for the bold lip? Will it last for 9+ hours? What exactly is “appropriate”? Makeup is a way for women to express themselves at work and extenuate the beauty they already have! My personal favorites are neutral eye colors and a nude/ light pink lip. Neutral looks are great for the work place and can easily be added to at the end of the day for a date night, or happy hour!

Tip! Buy a neutral eyeshadow palette. Palettes have multiple colors and you can change it up, but still wear a neutral look. This is cost effective too! Suggestions: Urban Decay Naked 2, or Too Faced Natural Eye Neutral Eye Shadow Collection.

Below I have linked my favorite Jaclyn Hill tutorials that are office appropriate:

Awesome & Appropriate Cubicle Décor

Awesome Cubicle Decor

Working in a cubicle can be depressing, boring, plain, stale, ugly (shall we continue)… but it doesn’t have to be!

At one point in your professional career you are going to be given a workspace of your own. If you are lucky, you will have a nice office with real privacy and four walls; however, the majority of us will be given a small cubicle open for the world to see. Even though cubicles can be drab, there is plenty of potential for a personal, clean and colorful space!

Use your wall space

Decorating your cubicle can be easy and enjoyable, but adding color is a must to make it feel like home! Make sure you utilize the vertical space provided by the walls of your cubicle. These walls are prime locations for colorful art work, cards from co-workers, or other hanging decorations!

Cubicle with quotes and art

Try printing out inspirational quotes for your walls like this desk from The Everygirl.

Accessorize your desk!

Adding appropriate (alcohol free, fully clothed, no hot-mess-express) photographs, cute coffee mugs, and decorative flowers to your cubicle are all wonderful ways to create a more positive work environment.

TIP! If you want to quickly become the most popular person in your office just set up a small candy dish in an accessible area by your desk. This sweet treat will allow you to meet new co-workers and share a quick chat while they pass by.
