Waitressing Makeup

I have been waitressing every summer every year since I was about 13 or 14 and I thought I would share with you my favourite products I wear for when I am at work!

First of all, I always wear Estée Lauder Double Wear (review here). It is my holy grail foundation and it never lets me down. It stays in place throughout the entire shift, despite being around cookers/fryers/all kinds of cooking equipment and running around trying to tend to everyones needs. I've used this in a few of my youtube videos so please do go and check them out if you want to have a look at how it looks on the skin!

I do wear primer as well, and recently I've been loving POREfessional by Benefit. I've been using it on my nose in particular and I just love how smoooooooooth it makes my skin!

As for eyeshadows, I ALWAYS use an eye primer. I can end up being a bit of a sweaty betty so I always make sure I have primer on. At the moment, I am loving the Stay Don't Stray eye primer by Benefit. I really like this one in comparison to all of my other eye primers because I find it's the easiest one to blend eyeshadows onto.

As for the eyeshadows themselves, I tend to stick to matte colours. At the moment, I have a slight obsession with my Matte Eyeshadow palette by Too Faced. I also like using the matte colours from the Urban Decay Naked palettes. I don't really think sparkly eye makeup is particularly appropriate for waitressing so I stick with mattes. Mattes are a really subtle but effective way of making your eyes pop, and I think they're less prone to creasing. I also think it's less obvious if they rub off a little bit. And no one likes glitter in their dinner so I stick to mattes!

As for my face, again I like to stick with subtle products. They're not necessarily matte, but they are definitely not sparkle galore. I don't put on too much of a contour, I stick to NARS Laguna or sometimes my Benefit Hoola and just pop it onto my cheek bones and a little bit on my temples and jaw line. I like using just a flush of pink onto my cheeks, I like to reach for my Bobbi Brown blush in pastel pink or Benefit Dandelion with a touch of Dallas on top. I don't bother with a highlight most days but if I do I like using my MAC Soft & Gentle.

I don't really bother with much on my lips. I don't have time to reapply it so I never go for a bold colour! If I do wear lipstick I will go for a nude, usually MAC Modesty or Faux. But most days, I will opt for a bit of lip balm or just nothing at all.

I have also filmed a youtube video on most of these products if you were interested.



Hope you liked this post and Happy Waitressing!
