The Products from Our “Office-Appropriate Makeup” Experiment

The Products from Our “Office-Appropriate Makeup” ExperimentIf you want to recreate the looks we wore, you’ll need to start by hitting a MAC counter.

Our three-day experiment about what exactly constitutes “office-appropriate makeup” began with a day of no makeup at all. Days 2 and 3 were different stories, and below is a breakdown of the products we wore each of those days. It turns out we all use the same mascara, except Jackie, who we are going to exclude from group hangs now. (Just kidding.)
