There are notions that working from home means lounging around in pajamas with disheveled hair, but following a similar routine when going to the office is said to boost productivity and set a proper headspace.

For starters, doing makeup brings you in the zone and makes you look office-appropriate during virtual meetings and presentations. Wondering which makeup products to use to make you presentable but effortlessly put together during work from home zoom meetings? 

Here are some essential makeup picks from Megaworld Lifestyle Malls:

1. Brighten up your face with a strobe cream

While there’s no need to put on full makeup with a full coverage foundation, you could use a strobe cream to look polished.

MAC Strobe Cream gets rid of the appearance of dull, flat, or tired-looking skin. It contains iridescent particles and antioxidants to brighten and clarify your complexion. Grab your essential makeup picks at MAC located at GF, Lucky Chinatown and GF, Eastwood Mall.

2. Groom your brows into a natural look


Making your brows presentable is probably the most essential look when working from home as they frame your entire face. A defined brow makes you look put together when on camera.

You could use Bobbie Brown’s Perfectly Defined Long-Wear Brow Pencil to mimic the look of individual natural brow hairs or fill your eyebrows with a powder-like effect. Bobbie Brown is located at GF, Lucky Chinatown.

3. Keep a shine-free face with translucent setting powder.

Using essential oils to help you concentrate is good but having an excessively oily face in video calls feels a little awkward. If you’re the type to sweat and be oily during midday meetings, a translucent setting powder will be your friend.

It’s like the cult-favorite Translucent Loose Setting Powder, but infused with pearl pigments to give a natural glow. Get your essential makeup picks in Tupped, located at 2F, Uptown Mall.

4. Put on some mascara

So you’ve been up all night binge-watching series and you want to hide those puffy peepers? Mascara can do wonders by opening up and widening your eyes.

Smashbox’s SuperFan lengthening Mascara gives an instant lift and a modern, fanned-out volume without any heaviness or clumping up for up to 12 hours. Grab yours at Beauty Bar, located at GF, Lucky Chinatown and GF, Eastwood Mall. 

5. Add a little color to your lips

You may look extremely pale without lipstick but conference calls may not be the best venue to show off your bright red lipstick shade. If you find yourself bothered by smothering on thick, heavy lippies, a liquid lip tint may be your best bet.

The Faceshop’s Water Fit lip tint has a water gel texture that leaves a light, moisturized feel on the lips. It leaves a soft matte finish that lasts long and is transfer-proof. What’s more is you could also dab a little to your cheeks! Check these essential makeup picks for you at The Face located at GF, Eastwood Mall, GF, Uptown Mall, 2F Lucky Chinatown, GF, Venice Grand Canal.

6. Look alive by putting color to your cheeks

You could easily drown out in harsh lighting and low quality video calls, which could make you look pale and tired. To add some dimension and life to your face, dab a little bit of blush that can be blended to look natural.
