The #UpsizeGirlBoss Beauty Kit Starter Pack
We read somewhere that a woman needs only black eyeliner and red lipstick to make it in the world of business. And we agree - a cat's eye and a red lip are everything in terms of fierceness. If you're a girl boss running her own empire, this simple look is so on point.
But not every girl boss is the same. Makeup mogul Bobbi Brown is known for her signature natural makeup look although the brand (which is now owned by Estee Lauder) sometimes ventures into reds and bright pinks. Nothing neon or too bright that would look out of place in the board room. Anything too bold simply isn't in the brand's DNA.
Each girl boss is different so we've compiled some of the best beauty products that could work for women on top.
The Glossier Phase 2 set is for the low maintenance girl boss who doesn't really wear a lot of makeup. The set includes Boy Brow, Stretch Concealer and Generation G sheer matte lipstick. The brand was founded by former Vogue assistant Emily Weiss, who is typical of the woman that Glossier was made for.
The products are not for Instagram makeup so if that's what you're looking for, Glossier isn't for you. The products are sheer and no fuss. You don't need complicated steps or tools. You can, in fact, use your fingers to apply them.
The workaholic girl boss needs a foundation that works as hard as she does. Estee Lauder Double Wear Stay-in-Place Makeup is a liquid foundation that does what it promises--stay in place. Estee Lauder promises that Double Wear will last up to 15 hours.
We didn't wear it that long but at seven hours, it was still going strong. This is for the girl boss on the go because it can withstand our humid weather.
The young girl boss needs to show that she's tough so that she will be taken seriously by people older than her. Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in Lolita is a chestnut rose that would suit warm and cool skin tones. It's bold nude, if that is possible. It says, "I am a woman who's in charge." Oh, and it is long lasting.
Grab yours from Sephora.
Every girl boss needs Happy Skin Catch the Sun On the Go Hydrating UV Mist SPF 35 PA++ (Php 699), a spray-on sunblock. You can even spray it on top of your makeup for a double purpose of sunscreen plus setting spray.
The Catch the Sun Brightening UV Gel Cream SPF 40 PA+++ (Php 999) is a watery gel cream that protects against UV rays and doubles as an anti-urban pollution screen. It is lightweight, non-sticky, and delivers a matte finish. Both sunscreens will leave a white cast because they don't contain zinc or titanium dioxide.
