HOW TO MASTER YOUR INTERVIEW MAKE UP LOOK

5/22/2017

This will come as no surprise to you when I say we live in an age where the society we live in tends to judge a book by its cover rather than its contents, and the same is true, if not worse for the professional world!  you can walk straight into an interview room and immediately a perception of you would've been formed before you say a word! which unfortunately exacerbates the notion that
: your beauty look has a lot to do with whether or not you land the job because as much as I hate to admit it, employers are more likely to extend a job offer to someone with a more polished, well put together look than someone who's, well... disheveled!

And I know that if anything should dictate the outcome of an interview, surely that  should be merits and competencies and not whether or not you're wearing makeup! But such is not the case my friend as we live in a world where image can sometimes supersede everything!
So, given that that's the hand we're dealt with, how can we ensure that we play by the rules and use makeup to our advantage ?

Well, I'm glad you asked because here's some interview beauty tips that will help you nail the job.

Step 1
IT'S ALL ABOUT PREPPING THE SKIN
The key to any fab' makeup look lies in creating a great canvas, aka your skin, on which to go on.
So why not try Esteer Lauder advance night repair  because it's super great for eradicating any signs of fatigue and dehydration!
Pop this on the night before your interview for a healthy fresh-faced skin in the morning - perfect for applying your makeup!

Step 2
GET YOUR FOUNDATION SHADE RIGHT
Hands up if you agree that the right shade of foundation to match your skin tone is something that can prove difficult, if not, elusive for many of us girls! Which is why this No. 7 intelligent Colour Correction is a must-have for that perfect smooth finish to your foundation.
This sheer foundation cleverly adapts to match your skin tone, it's hypo allergenic,  it has an SPF, and it's perfect for giving you that light easy base which is great for giving you that natural makeup look you should be hoping for for your interview!

Step 3
GET YOUR GLOW ON!
Looking for that natural glow? Try the No. 7 Instance Illusions Rapid Radiance Balm for that subtle glow and shimmer!
It's great for wearing either under your foundation or over it and as it'll instantly give you a healthy, natural glow to the skin, without being too glittery! What's not to love about that?!

Step 4
EMBRACE THE AU NATURAL LOOK!
There's really no need for wearing any shadows as you want to convey a more natural "you", but if you do choose to wear an eye shadow, choose one  in neutral and natural shades and remember that a little bit of shimmer is fine as long as it's not too OTT!
And rather than falsies, opt for a coat of black, waterproof mascara instead. That way it'll be weatherproof, sweat-proof and tear-proof, although no matter how bad your interview goes, I wouldn't recommend crying!

Step 5
POWDER-UP AND SET EVERYTHING IN PLACE! 
nothing says distressed or unpolished like an out-of-place make up look.
So make sure you use a good loose powder to ensure a more finished makeup look that'll help enhance your natural features rather than .... them!
I'm loving this Nars Light Reflecting Loose Powder - Enhanced with a photochromic technology that adjusts to light throughout the day, it'll work with your makeup to hide fine lines, reduce signs of wrinkles, and minimize pores, so your skin and makeup will appear completely smooth

Step 6
THE FINISHING TOUCHES...
Lastly, remember that you're going to an interview and not a social event, so pull back your hair either in a low ponytail or chignon for a soft finish or a mid to high ponytail to help give you that wide-eyed fresh faced look we all desire!

Step 7
AND LASTLY... GO FORTH AND CONQUER!
Now that you'll have your interview make up look perfected, go ahead with confidence & nail that interview!
