Makeup for Professional Women: Detailed Tutorial and Tips for Looking Your Best in the Workplace

Makeup for Professional Women: Detailed Tutorial and Tips for Looking Your Best in the Workplace

Happy #makeupmonday! Today, I wanted to provide a detailed talk through tutorial full of tips and product recommendations especially for professional women. Specifically, this video is focused on women like myself who teach, do research, and/or work in academia as a professor, graduate/PhD student, instructor, or staff member. This tutorial is also packed with recommendations for affordable, no-fuss options as well as products suited for women in their 30s and beyond.

I really hope you enjoy! Let me know if you would like to see more of these types of videos. I’d love to talk more about the concerns of professional women as well as beauty and style tips and recommendations as it pertains to our career development.

Have a great, productive week all my fellow scholars and inspiring working women! ツ

Thanks to @brie_marie on Instagram for the request!
