A Marie Claire first, the Power Summit is a full-day power conference taking place on Wednesday, 18 July 2018 at The Lyric at Gold Reef City in Johannesburg, where incredible women leaders, trailblazers, creatives and influencers from across Africa will share their knowledge, wisdom and power.

To help you get Power Summit ready, we, together with our official beauty partner for the Power Summit, Woolworths Beauty have put together the top five products to help you look powerful in the office, and leave you ready to take on the world.

Our advice? Reserve neutrality for office politics and accent your 9-to-5 look with a pop of colour.

1. All About That Base

The secret to a solid power beauty look is all in the base. WBeauty Longwear Max Cover Foundation with SPF is designed for medium to full coverage to leave your complexion even and flawless throughout your busy day.

2. Bossed-up Lashes

Let your take-charge lashes do all the talking with the WBeauty3-1 In-Waterproof Mascara. The multi-purpose mascara adds volume, curls and lengthens lashes and is designed for long wear without flaking, clumping or smudging.

Pro tip: Start at the base of lashes and wiggle the wand while pulling upward to create added volume.

3. Line It Up

Give your look a power boost with a winged eyeliner using the WBeauty Gel Eyeliner. This soft kohl liner glides on like liquid, drying in under a minute into a budge-proof formula that is ideal for long days or on-the-go touch-ups.

Pro tip: Start at the top inner corner and pull outward in a smooth, sweeping motion for a power eye effect.

4. Nail It

Create a powerful statement with a vivid nail colour. The WBeauty Gel Effect Mini Nail Polish comes with a rounded square brush that makes perfect application easy without the hassle of UV lights.

5. Power Pout

To really bring your power look to life, reach for the highly saturated WBeauty Hydro Lipstick. The ultra-creamy, full-coverage lipstick is formulated to hydrate your lips. Bonus? It’s water-resistant so your coffee mug doesn’t have to wear lipstick, too.

Pro tip: Fill the lips entirely, starting in the middle and working out. Depending on your mood, layer on for a punchy hue or blend onto lips for a subtle tint.
