The Only Makeup Products I've Used Working From Home for the Past 4.5 Years

As a remote employee, I've been working from home for 4.5 years, which is a long time. My WFH tricks have certainly fluctuated throughout the years, but one thing that's remained constant is that I always put on makeup, and on the rare days that I don't, I feel less awake. Yes, it's in my head, but if something keeps me from being productive, regardless of whether or not it's tangible, I'm not going to do it. I'd much rather just take the extra 10 minutes to put on some makeup in the morning

The thing is, I steer clear of heavy makeup and stick to only natural products that allow my skin to glow as opposed to masking it. And I don't bother with a lot of gadgets and tools. Just using my fingers, for the most part, speeds up the task a lot. I've stuck to the same types of products for years because they're glowy and easy to apply. Scroll to shop them for yourself in case you too find yourself working from home these days (or just want some new product recommendations).

Step One: Tinted Moisturiser and Concealer

Step 2: Pressed Powder and Cheek Colour

Step 3: Eye Shadow and Mascara

The iconic egg shape of this hand cream is half the fun of pampering my hands before I go out.

Next up, I don't wear much makeup thanks to these skincare buys.
