Workforce: Workface Routine {Travel Tuesday}

We all have our workforce face routine. I remember back when I rode the subway to work with the 9-5 crowd there was always that one woman applying her makeup in her hand held mirror. Or the woman who runs to the washroom before any co-workers see her to apply her makeup. Also, the not-so-shy type who just waits to get to her desk to apply her face. Which ever work environment you have, we all have a routine...mine is in a hotel room and can be at anytime of the day. Key is to always look "fresh" and never jet-lag. Not always so easy...

workface: daily routine

Collection Cosmetics Lasting Perfection Concealer (formerly Collection 2000 Cosmetics)
I've purchased this atleast 3x now at Super Drugs in London!! Amazing concealer; doesn't crease, lasts all day, looks natural and not cakey. Need I write more? Oh yeah and inexpensive.

Nars Cosmetics Bronzer in shade Laguna
Being a bronzer slut (I cheat on all my bronzers) I always go back to my Holy Grail of bronzers, Nars! Looks natural on my yellow-based skintone without looking like a pumpkin.

Perricone MD No Foundation Foundation 
This one shade fits all shade works lovely on my skintone. Its sheer coverage and hydrating, leaves skin with a natural glow. Plus, has a SPF of 30 & anti-aging benefits. Unfortunately, I left this behind in a hotel room. Must purchase again!

Max factor Xperience Mousse Mascara
Another Super Drug purchase from London (also available at Boots Pharmacies).  Really like the blackness of this mascara (I always buy the darkest shade of any mascara available). Full, separate lashes and doesn't bother my sensitive eyes on long flights. 

Maybelline Define-a-Brow Pencil
An old favourite; inexpensive, looks natural, and doesn't smudge. Good long lasting pencil! A great alternative to MAC Brow pencil.

This Works Perfect Look Skin Miracle
Very similar to the Perricone MD No Foundation No Foundation! Sheer coverage, just the right amount of hydrating and slight glow. The shade looks like caramel but evens out skin tone flawlessly.

Pur Minerals 4-In-1 Pressed Mineral Makeup Foundation with SPF 15
I confess, for the longest time I just couldn't get mineral powder foundations to look natural on my skin. The key was not in the kabuki brush which comes with most mineral powders but to use a blush brush. I apply this lightly over the above sheer tinted moisturizers listed.

Caryl Baker Visage blush in shade Slept In
Just recently got into this brand! Love this new shade for Fall 2012; a gorgeous mauve-pink blush that brightens my complexion.

What is your workforce workface?



  1. I'm so curious to try the collection concealer - have heard so many raves about it!

    I love that you have such an international makeup bag LOL - lucky girl!

  2. I've raved about that concealer before & truly awesome! Yes, I like to take advantage of my travels;)
