Which makeup to wear in the office? Which lipstick color will work? And which ones to avoid?
The other day I was contacted by Amandine Seguin, a journalist for Madame.lefigaro.fr magazine. She was working on an article on office make-up and asked me for my advice. In particular she was wondering about lipsticks, how different shades work in a professional environment.
What’s the best makeup to wear in the office?
Did you know the right make-up can make you appear not only more likeable, but also more competent? Studies (at Boston University) have proven it. People will find you more trustworthy, which can be very helpful for example in a sales context. Many companies have already understood this and offer corporate make-up workshops.

Make-up in a professional context is a subject that I also come across very often in my Beauty Coaching sessions. Which make-up to wear to go to work? It should bring the best out of you without being too obvious. And you don’t want to spend too much time on it in the morning either…
This article published in Madame Figaro looks in particular at lipstick in the office. What effect does it have on others in the office? As I find this article well written and very interesting, I wanted to share it with you!
I know it will answer all your “burning” questions about lipstick in the work context 😉
Here’s an extract, enjoy reading!
