Most of you will probably agree on one rudimentary guideline - your 9 to 5 makeup should be different than what you wear to go out after hours. However, this isn't always easy for every woman to nail down, whether it's an issue of being new to the workforce or merely not having had the chance to properly flex your makeup muscles.
Go Local Prov's beauty expert Becky DiStefano suggests boiling it down to one basic decision: do you emphasize your eyes or your lips? While a bold pout can look super professional when its balanced with minimal makeup, a smokey eye can also hold its own in the workplace.
"Do a simple eye with a wash of shadow and mascara," DiStefano suggests. "Or go for a strong, lined eye using a smudgy pencil...and finish with a light, clear gloss."
As for everything else, you generally want to look as clean and polished as possible, so keep your complexion flawless and your nails up-to-par.
