Shahnaz Husain

The appearance counts at the workplace, especially if you are an entrepreneur. Most people believe that good grooming is linked to success. A well-groomed look also imparts self-confidence. However, workplace appearance for the business woman should be a picture of “understated elegance.” The make-up should be simple and subtle. You must look attractive and yet professional. The make-up and grooming of a woman entrepreneur should be such that it not only enhances your looks, but also makes you feel confident and professional. Yet,balance and moderation are two qualities to strive for.

Here are some tips:

If you have a clear skin, leave out foundation. After cleansing, apply a sunscreen. Then apply pressed powder (powder compact).  Avoid applying too much and pay attention to the oily areas of the face. Press the powder all over the face and neck, with a slightly damp sponge. This helps it to set and last longer. Or, use a tinted moisturiser, or primer, instead of foundation.

However, if you wish to apply foundation, use a water-based one. Add one or two drops of water for a lighter coverage. The foundation should be as close to your skin colour as possible. Apply it on the face and using a moist sponge, spread it evenly. Blending is very important to achieve an even and smooth finish.
