Perfect Court Reporter Makeup

Spread the love

I used very little makeup in my time as a freelancer. This was mainly because I wanted to keep my morning routine as streamlined as possible and also because I hate clutter. When I had afternoon jobs, I could spend more time on the state of things, but most mornings, I picked one of these two looks.

Note that I only use organic lip products. This is because you are eating your lip product throughout the day.

I don’t wear blush, bronzer, or foundation. If you need foundation, put it under your concealer. If you wear blush, apply it after your concealer.
Video and pictures of these looks are to come.

Look one (pale shimmer on lid, dark brown in crease, and light pink lips) – emphasizes the eyes:

Face:
Neutrogena Clear Face SPF 30
Makeupforever concealer

Eyes:
MAC All That Glitters on lid (light shimmer)
Maybelline Chai Quad Latte on crease (darkest brown)
Revelon liquid liner black OR Urban Decay Demolition (dark brown), if in a rush
Rimmel The Max Volume mascara – black

Lips:
RMS lip shine delicately pat onto the lip in Sublime (delicate pink)

Sometimes I would put a dark plum shade on the crease, and this paired beautifully with a nude lip. The light pink lip looks better with the dark brown crease.

Look two (pale shimmer on eyes, professional red lips) – emphasizes the lips:

Neutrogena Clear Face SPF 30
Makeupforever concealer

MAC All That Glitters on lid (light shimmer)
Revelon liquid liner black or Urban Decay Demolition (dark brown), if in a rush
Maybelline Great Lash Mascara – black

Lips:
Ilia Bang Bang lipstick (berry red) OR 99 Red Balloons pencil (more natural red) – apply either of them lightly, perhaps washing out with a top layer of lip balm

I always bring Pangea’s lip balm with me to depos. Usually I don’t refresh the soft red lips because they stain your lips, so it’s not necessary. The key is to apply lightly, so it doesn’t look too dramatic, but more natural.
