Slay Nine To Five Like An #OfficeSiren


Slay Nine To Five Like An #OfficeSiren

Meet the internet’s latest aesthetic obsession – the ‘office siren.   

She strikes the perfect balance between succubus chic and clean girl. We’re talking about Gisele Bündchen as Serena in The Devil Wears Prada (2006), or Bella Hadid’s sultry spin on corporate chic. 

She’s rocking a power suit, wire-rimmed glasses, and has ‘making heads turn’ slotted on her agenda. Her makeup is sleek and put-together, with a smokey eyeliner that seamlessly transitions from desk to dinner.  

Here’s how you can channel her vibe.

Eyes on you 

It’s all about making a statement with conservative tones. Pat a grey eyeshadow onto your lids. Add dimension with a cool-toned brown in the crease. Create a smoked-out wing with a creamy, jet-black eye pencil, and deposit some colour onto your lower lashline, too. Model and musician Gabbriette Bechtel’s Instagram account is the blueprint for this makeup look.

Best face forward 

Cloud-like, soft-matte skin is the beauty brief for this trend. Pair a hydrating primer with a demi-matte foundation. Dust on translucent powder only on your T-zone to mattify the area. Add warmth, dimension, and a hint of radiance with a luminous peach blush or bronzer. Multi-tasking products are your BFFs for when you’re running late to your 8 A.M. meeting.

Power pout essentials 

A muted mauve lip is boardroom-approved. Elevate it with a deep brown lip liner and a swipe of transparent gloss. It’s low maintenance yet impactful. If you’ve got plans after clocking out from your nine to five, swap it out for a red-brown cherry cola lip.
