Top Professional Pitfalls: 5 Beauty Mistakes Not To Make At Work

Close

It is possible to look pretty in a professional setting, but there's always that co-worker that takes things a little too far. Check out our five biggest beauty blunders for the office and tell us if you or someone you know is guilty of committing these professional pitfalls:

Too Much Perfume. This has to be one of the most popular ways to quietly offend people. There's nothing worse than being in close working quarters with someone who smells like they accidentally spilled the entire bottle of perfume on themselves.

When it comes to fragrances at the office, the pulse points rule that applies to getting ready for a date, should also be used when you're getting dressed for work. A light touch of perfume on your wrists and neck is all you need. If people tend to sneeze when you're around, then you know you've gone overboard.

Flashy Lipstick. There's a time and a place to try our your new deep plum or bright Barbie pink lip colors, and the office isn't one of them. Lipstick should compliment and not control your makeup as the main attraction.

Even if your workplace rules are a bit more relaxed, leave the more outrageous colors at home so people focus on what you're saying instead of staring at a pout that speaks before you do.

Untamed Hair Flips. Love wearing your hair long? Great! Not into hair ties? Cool. But if you're gonna have your tresses free, they shouldn't be assaulting others with their flips to either side of your shoulders.

In a close-knit office meeting, don't whip your co-workers with your long-hair-don't-care attitude. Consider a headband, tension-free top knot, or lobster tail braid to keep your crown under control.

Distracting Eye Makeup. Just like a loud lipstick, this gets you stares for all the wrong reasons. Clumpy lashes with too much mascara, thick eyeliner, or daring eye shades should be tamed and toned down.

Noisy Nails. You don't really realize how much we all use a keyboard at work to type until someone with really long nails starts typing away.

As certified nail junkies ourselves, we can attest we have some offenders in our own office! Solution? Rubber keyboards! After using these, you won't hear a peep out of anyone's talons!
