Transitioning from being a carefree, happy-go-lucky gal into a career woman is one of the major goals that every woman should strive to achieve. And by means,if you want to be taken seriously, you should pay attention on how you carry yourself in the workplace. The way you look affects you big time in how your career path go. So if you are being sidelined for promotions despite on your work achievement, you might consider taking a look on your fashion choice. Oftentimes, they are being neglected, but this little detail is one of the usual culprit why your climb in the career ladder seems to be slow.
If you want to be considered seriously, you should be mindful of the beauty trends that you are following especially on how you put on your makeup. Being polish suggests professionalism and evokes your maturity. So if you are still doing below fashion booboos, you might as well stop and learn to do your makeup right.
Your foundation is like a second skin only better. Thus, as a career woman you should always wear a foundation that totally blends in your own skin and will not leave you with streaks and colors that looks like your face is floating from rest of your body. Know how to choose the right color for your skin tone, and ensure that when you apply your foundation it will blend seamlessly into your skin. Make sure that your foundation has the right formulation to avoid oxidation or discoloration.
Colorful, shimmery makeup
Yes, you are entitled to your own individuality but you also need to learn to mute your wild side in the workplace. Your date night with barkada look (i.e. colorful, shimmery eyeshadow, blush and lip color) is definitely a no-no in the office. Stick to neutral colors instead that do not distract. Your makeup should be matte or satin in finish and will last you the whole day.
Overpowering perfume scents
The rule of thumb in workplace fashion is that whatever you wear should not be a distraction to your co-workers. That includes your perfume choice. Stay away from the sweet, fruity scent you used to wear during your teen years. Instead, use a perfume that has a hint of powder or floral smell to it. These scents will leave you fresh all day without overpowering the rest of the workplace.
Fancy nail arts and unconventional nail colors
Trimming your nails is not enough when it comes to office grooming. You should also refrain from sporting nail arts and unconventional nail colors to avoid being viewed as childish. Just like your makeup, stick to neutral nail colors and say goodbye to long nails or nail extensions that will hamper your fingers’ mobility.
Outrageous hairstyles and hair colors
Lastly, pick a hairstyle that is easy to wear, manageable and corporate-friendly. Stay away from flaming hair colors and choose a hair dye closest to your natural hair.
There is a saying that ” to be a queen, you should act like one”. So always look your best while doing all the hardwork and it will surely pay off.
