The Edit | The Work Face

I've been working full time in a new job for a couple of weeks now so I thought I would share what makeup i've been wearing. I have to wake up at 5:30 so often do my makeup when it's still dark so i've been reaching for the same few products although I do plan on changing things up a little so I use everything in my collection. 
Starting with the base i'm still loving the Rimmel Stay Matte Primer as it makes my foundation last so much longer. I actually need to pick up a new tube soon as i've used it so much. My foundation is choice has been the Bourjois Air Mat as it feels lovely on the skin, as decent coverage and lasts really long without going patchy. Perfect for a long shift. 
My concealer has really changed much. I'm still using the Seventeen Stay Time 18 Hour Concealer on blemishes and the L'oreal Lumi Magique under the eyes which covers and brightens around the eyes which is needed for very early mornings. 
For powder i've dug out the Vichy Dermablend powder as it is very light and feels smooth on the skin. I had totally forgotten about this product but it is really great for making your foundation lasts longer. For bronzer i've gone back to an old classic; and well loved NARS Laguna bronzer. I find this adds a nice warmth without looking too dark. I've also been using the NARS Deep Throat blush as it is one of my favourites and is a great peachy pink shade. 
For eyes i've been liking a bronze smokey eye and one of my favourite palettes for that is the Too Faced Chocolate Bar palette. I really like the cream, gold and matte brown shades in this palette and i've been choosing between these colours most days. 
Mascara i've been using the Maybelline Plumped Up Colossal Volume Mascara, this is okay but nothing ground braking. I'm definitely looking to try something new that adds volume and definition to the lashes. Recommendations are very much welcome. For brows I've been loving the Smashbox Brow Tech Matte Pencil in Taupe. I love the shade of this as it matches my hair perfect as well as lasting really well. For lips i've been using MAC Craving most days. I love that this is a neutral colour whilst still be somewhat bold on. It also last really well and I only have to reapply at lunch. 

So those are been the products i've been reaching for work recently. All of these last well and I don't have to touch up during the day. What products do you reach for on a work day?
