The best makeup for an office partyWhether you are welcoming a new CEO or bidding adieu to a coworker, office functions can occur fairly often. However, looking ready to party while also appearing professional can be tricky. So what kind of makeup is best for such an event?

"Swilling champagne with your colleagues isn't an occasion for knockout glamour," InStyle magazine reports. Leave the excess glitter and heavy liner for cocktails with your girlfriends. Instead, opt for soft makeup and add elegance by playing up your lashes.

The news source suggests dusting your lids with a shimmery neutral eyeshadow and defining your upper lash line with a thin stripe of black eyeliner. For super lush lashes, remember that a faux fringe is your friend – but only on your upper lids.

"To apply false lashes, look down into a mirror and drop the strip on your natural lash line," the news source advises. "Wait 20 seconds for the glue to dry…curl lashes and sweep on a lengthening mascara."

Finish with a touch of rosy blush on the apples of your cheeks and a lip gloss that matches your natural lip color for an office-appropriate look that is truly stunning.
