Mask tired eyes that have stared at the computer all day with a quick swipe of deep dark kohl. There’s nothing like a dash of kajal to wake up your eyes.

Your skin tends to look pale under the bright office lights. Add some color to your cheeks, with a sweep of blush or highlighter. Plus, it’s the perfect pick-me-up for a dull, sallow complexion.

Nothing like a shiny T zone to ruin your look. Get rid of shine ASAP with a compact powder. It will add an instant freshness to your face and mattify your skin too.

Tinted Lip Balm
Add just the right amount of color to your pout with a playful, tinted lip balm. Tinted balms are lightweight, subtle and add just a subtle tint of color. Plus, they hydrate and keep your lips moist and supple.

Nude Eye Shadow Palette
Pick a nude palette which has shades that are not only perfect for the day but also buildable for a night time look. Just switch to the darker shades from the nude palette for an evening event or an after office party.

You don’t want to embarrass yourself at a meeting with oily and lank second-day hair. Keep a dry shampoo handy to add instant freshness and volume to flat hair.

Deodorants don’t sound glamourous, but you’ll thank us for including this in the list. Unlike fragrances, deodorants actually make you perspire less and keep you smelling fresh all day.

Chipped and unevenly filed nails look really ugly. Keep a nail file in your drawer to fix all your nail problems.

Clear Nail Polish
The shine of your mani will only last for four days and with a busy schedule, it’s difficult to get regular manis. Instead, keep a clear nail polish and apply on your manicure to add shine and give your pinkies a fresh new look.
