Too Much Makeup for Daytime
Verdict: with my retro eyes and bold lips, people think I wear too much make up for an everyday daytime look. Mind you, I could spend 20 minutes applying concealer, highlighter, and bronzer for an airbrushed contour look, and that would be okay as long as my lips weren't a color and my eye makeup was brown.
I chose this look because I would rather highlight my lips than my eyes, and it's really quick to do. To me, it's classic. If you tried to leave the house in the 50s with nude lipstick and beige eyeshadow, your mother would have clutched her pearls. So unfinished! But then I don't take it upon myself to tell my coworkers what I think of their makeup either.
Do you think red lips are too much for daytime? What is your work makeup limit? Which is more important to you as far as "too much" makeup, the time it takes to apply or the boldness of the look?
