Less Makeup is Always Better in the Workplace
If the first thing people notice about you is your makeup - you are probably wearing too much or the wrong colors.
Too much makeup can make you look gaudy, older, and even like you are on the prowl. Send the right message to others by keeping makeup light and fresh. Heavy makeup under office lighting does not do any woman justice, in fact, if your office has fluorescent lighting any makeup you wear will appear heavier than it would under incandescent lighting.
Dark colored, bright red, and heavy lipstick is fine for evening events but keep lipstick colors pale and sheer for the office.
Perfume can trigger asthma and allergies in the people around you. Strong scents rarely appeal to anyone but the wearer. If you do wear scented products to work keep it as light as possible. If someone can smell you the second you enter a room, or your scent lingers in the air after you leave the room, you are wearing too much.
