A great interview is one that a potential employer remembers you, not for what you wear, but for your worth ethic and experience. You only have one shot with the interview, hit or miss, so you can’t afford to lose a job over some bad makeup. Don’t go overboard during the interview, just be yourself.
The first job interview makeup tip should be your personal grooming. It should communicate reliability, competence and professionalism. When applying your foundation, apply it to a clean moisturized face. Take your time applying your foundation to avoid too heavy an application.
Apply your eye makeup next. Avoid applying too much on the eyes. Stick to neutral shades such as browns, tans or soft plums that accentuate your eyes and do not show a lot of color.
A concealer to brighten your eyes should be used to add confidence to your look. A thin coating of mascara will complete the look leaving your eyes naturally beautiful and not appearing heavily made up. Be careful not to over emphasize your lips.
Keep your lip color makeup as neutral as possible – a shade or two closer to your natural lip color will work well, or try a very pale berry or pink color, and skip the lip gloss. The use of a soft pink blush, lightly applied on the apples of your cheeks will give your face a fresh, muted look. Lastly, a light dusting of loose or pressed powder, particularly along the forehead, nose and chin will keep you looking fresh and professional.
