For me, makeup in the work place should look classic and natural. Even with red lips, it's important to keep the look professional--I don't want to look overdone. I really believe that woman of color have so many options in cosmetics on the market right now and shouldn't have a problem creating a professional look. Depending on your place of work--keeping a professional look should be a top priority when it comes to how you present yourself. Personally, light to moderate makeup makes me feel more put together and when I feel put together--I tend to do better.
