Now that you’ve landed your dream job and know how to dress the part, you’re craving a shake-up of your office beauty look. Just like your sartorial choices, your hair and makeup should reflect polished professionalism, but that doesn’t mean you can’t have a little fun. We’ve selected five chic options straight from the runways—that’s one to try every day this week. Read on for tips on how to achieve work-appropriate versions of the top summer hair and makeup trends.
Orange Eye Shadow
We know what you're thinking, but hear us out—orange shadow is totally wearable for the office. It's a great alternative to the neutral bronze hue you've probably tired out. Choose a matte shade and blend all over the lid. Curl your lashes for definition and add a subtle peachy balm on the lips for a fresh-faced look.

An elegant bun is perfect for any professional environment, but we suggest giving it a little unexpected flair. Brush your hair into a low ponytail and twist the pony as it coils into a bun, leaving about two to three inches of the ends sticking out. Secure the base of the bun with jumbo bobby pins and straighten the ends so they fan. Complete with a shine-inducing hairspray to lock in luminosity and tame flyaways.

A classic red pout can work both during and after office hours. To adapt your daytime look for night, apply a smoky black liner on the outer rims of the eyes and smudge out for a sexier result.

This romantic texturized 'do is effortless yet elevated. Start by gathering your tresses into a low ponytail at the nape of the neck. Grab a portion of the hair, wrap it around the base of the tail and tuck it in. Secure with bobby pins. Gently pull at the sides outward to loosen. Use a teasing brush to backcomb, making small strokes all across the head and down the tail. Spritz a texturizing mist as you brush through with your fingers.

It's time to ease into the weekend. Fake that summer glow by applying a matte cream bronzer stick directly onto the cheekbones, jawline and temples. Blend thoroughly as it melts into the skin for a natural sun-kissed effect. (You can also use it as a cream eye shadow.) Simply finish off with a swipe of mascara to open up the eyes and lift the lashes. Illuminate with a hint of dewy highlighter on the cupid's bow and bridge of the nose.
