Being a working mom is hard enough….and then add Workplace Makeup. You’re smart, talented and going places so don’t let overdone makeup looks distract from your superpowers.

DO master the pretty faux-glow makeup look. Dewy glows exude total take-charge vibes. Blending — as always — is key. Blend into your hairline and down to your décolleté. Use a large makeup brush, for a well blended, office-appropriate finish.

DON’T Overdose on dark eye makeup. The last place you need to get heavy-handed is the eyes, especially from 9 to 5. Not only is the smoky, raccoon eye look unflattering, but your bosses might wonder if it’s leftover from the evening before.
