Our return to the office may be imminent but I am not about to feel blue about my morning commute. From new eyeshadow drops to skincare that will add some luminosity to my skin, here’s how I am prepping for my 9 to 5.

Polished London Whitening Paste and Mouth Cleanse, €35
CALL me superficial, but I like a toothpaste and mouthwash that not only delivers on oral hygiene, but also looks good on my bathroom shelf.
Vegan and cruelty-free, this glistening pearlescent chrome duo ticks boths boxes.
The whitening paste has a thicker consistency than traditional toothpaste, due to its unique formulation containing papaya enzyme, which provides advanced stain removal.
Pair it with the mouth cleanse which creates a protective anti-stain shield around the teeth, while providing deep anti-bacterial cleaning to keep your breath minty fresh.

Estée Lauder All Day Hydration Protect + Glow Gift Set, €35
WITH dashing from desk to dancefloor on the horizon once more (positive vibrations please), Estée Lauder has packaged its skincare classics in handy miniature sizes to fit in your handbag.
It includes the Multi-Protection Anti-Oxidant 24H-Moisture Crème and iconic NightWear Plus Anti-Oxidant Night Detox Crème. This is your four-step routine to cheat your way to beautiful skin — the office won’t know what hit it.

Lancôme Hypnose 5-Color Eyeshadow Palette, €51.50
BECAUSE I will be back at my desk soon (sigh), this is the perfect palette for day-to-night looks. Think of it as an eye colour wardrobe that you never knew you needed.
With each make-up palette featuring five shades that range from matte to metallic — all intensely pigmented and long-wear — it’s luxury make-up artistry made easy.

Note Skin Perfecting Primer, €11.95
NOBODY wants their foundation sliding off their face after the 3pm slump. One pump of this illuminating primer is all you need to office-proof your look. Melting beautifully into the skin, it blurs imperfections and helps keep make-up fresh throughout the day, leaving a bright, hydrated finish.

Urban Decay 24/7 Moondust Shadow, €18
DID somebody order a single shot of caffeine-infused colour? Meet the recharged, reinvented, and vegan formulas from Urban Decay.
The 24/7 line-up has now been upgraded for long-lasting hyper pigmented colour and rich, shimmery finish to keep eyes looking fresh and crease-free all day. With just one swipe of these transfer-proof shades, you’ll be ready for whatever the day brings.

Thalgo Lumière Marine Brightening Cream, €53
WHEN your skin is in desperate need of some TLC, then look no further.
With a sheer, light texture and gentle notes of cotton and white flowers, this luxury brightening cream minimises dark spots and uneven skin tone, and the best part is your skin is immediately brightened upon application.
It is suitable for normal to combination skin with pigment irregularities.

Illamasqua Colouring Eye Pencil, €20
YOU could stick to boring black liner, but why not leave a lasting impression instead?
Whether you want to create a graphic liner or blend around the eyes, this highly pigmented and super creamy pencil can also be used as a cream shadow all over the lids. I’ve fallen for shade Debonair which is an ocean blue — but really the sky is the limit with these new shades.
