Makeup Tips for 8 Common Problems
Help! I Need to Look More Professional
Before: Elizabeth Jamieson, 34
Though Elizabeth’s makeup bag held a healthy amount of products (she likes to browse makeup counters and regularly buys when a gift with purchase is involved), she admits that she almost never wears any of them. Her usual routine consists of mascara, a bit of lip color, and a swipe of pressed powder. But Elizabeth recently landed her dream job—managing the brand-new Serena & Lily store in the Hamptons area of Long Island—and realizes she has to up her game. “The environment is business casual chic, with an emphasis on chic,” says the mother of one. “The pressure is on to represent the brand.” (T-shirt by C & C California.)
