When getting ourselves ready for work we often ask this question. Is this outfit and/or accessory appropriate for the workplace? The answer can be yes and it can also be no. It all depends on the item of choice and type of working environment. Also, the guidelines of your workplace whether it is an office, salon, spa, bar, restaurant etc. So a question that I often hear is: if wearing false eyelashes is appropriate for work? What do you think? Some people compare this image to a celebrity lifestyle, as it is now a growing trend within the office. It has also been pointed out that celebrities do not work in offices; however, professionals in the office must not follow this trend.
As the proverb goes, “the eyes are the window to the soul.” And what could be more soulful than thick, lush eyelashes?
According to The Youthist “unfortunately, as you age you may notice that your lashes are becoming thinner and less striking without the use of makeup. Relax – there’s nothing wrong with you. Thinning lashes are a natural part of the aging process”.
However, “natural” doesn’t necessarily make thinning lashes “desirable.” Thankfully, there are ways you can reverse the signs of aging in your lashes.

Creased clothesThere are few things more frustrating than noticing unsightly creases in your clothes when you’re just about to step out of the door. You don’t have time to steam your clothes or fire up the iron, but fortunately, a faithful friend can be most helpful in your time of need. Simply switch on your hair irons and set them to a medium heat. It’s the perfect way to straighten out those unsightly creases. Good hair irons are an essential tool in any beauty arsenal and you can find various brands ranked at http://besthairflatirons.com/.

Over conditioned hairMany of us spend a long time making sure our hair is absolutely perfect, but it’s often not until after we’ve dried and styled our hair that we see the greasy results of over conditioning. Leaving your home with less than perfect hair can damage your confidence so give it a blast of dry shampoo for a shot of instant freshness. It will absorb any excess grease while lending your hair body and texture.
Forehead sheenIf things have gotten a bit frantic while you’ve been getting everything ready before you go you may catch yourself with a little bit of perspiration on your forehead, peeking through your foundation. An extra dab of primer is the perfect way to quickly perfect the matte texture of your foundation even on hot and humid days.
Clumpy LashesNothing can ruin your look like clumpy lashes. They cheapen the effect of your mascara and make your look seem rushed, definitely not the path to making the right impression. This is why you should carry clear mascara with you at all times. Brush out the excess on your lashes, sliding off any buildup on your lashes and buffing them out from there.
And finally that most hated of all…
