A Job Interview Makeup Tutorial and Tips&Tricks

Hello Beautifuls! 

Today's post is going to be all about make-up for a job interview. You can also use this tutorial for when you are going to work or a job fair, basically when you go to places where professionalism is needed :) 

The one thing and probably the most important you need to know when you go for an interview is you want to look as natural as possible. Don't use too much eyeshadows or dark color eyeshadows because you don't want to scare away the interviewer(s). Don't put too much effort on your eyes, but on your face instead. You want to look clean but also to look dewy at the same time. 

For the eye tutorial, I only use a creamy brown eyeliner, mascara and an eyeshadow that one or two shades darker than your skin tone. I use a brown eyeliner because it looks more natural. A mascara is to help open up your eyes so you look more awake. The eyeshadow is to help create a dimension on your crease so it looks deeper. This is an option by the way - if you have had a deep crease, you can skip this step. Since my crease is not deep enough, so I want to make it more defined. 

For face, which is the most important one, conceal any imperfections like blemishes, redness, puffy eyes, scars, etc. Use a full coverage concealer. I am using Sonia Kashuk Hidden Agenda Concealer Set (for complete face products, keep scrolling down). Then, apply your favorite foundation, but not too thick please! As long as you have covered everything, then don't add more foundation. In order to avoid shiny face, set your face make-up with a little bit of powder. This one is optional: if you want to have a slimmer face, use bronzer (cream formula is preferable), but just a little bit! Just use bronzer to contour your face, apply it onto below of your cheekbones. For blush, use a plumy cream blush or cheek stain. The reason is because plumy cream blush or cheek stain looks more natural and creates a glow on your face. If you want to apply a highlighter, go for it, but only in the inner tear duct of your eye, above cheekbones and cupid bow. Again, not too much! 

So that's it for the face, now lets move on to the eye tutorial. It is really simple and quick I promise! :) 

Oh, one more important tip: clean your eyebrows a day before! A clean and defined eyebrow shapes your face. If you have little eyebrow hair, filling it in with an eyebrow pencil that two or three shades lighter than your skin tone :)

 Overall, for those of you who are about to go to interview, good luck! Do your best and be confidence. Don't be nervous, because if you are, you won't be able to answer the questions well. Take a deep breath if you get a hard question, then answer it slowly. :) 

loVe always,
