So you’ve finally landed an interview at your dream job? Congratulations! From double checking your resume, to laying out your outfit, we know that you have a lot on your mind. That’s why we have compiled the perfect makeup look to nail that interview.
Step One: Conceal
Office environments are usually flooded with white lights, which can make your foundation look jarring. Instead, dot a concealer on to your problem areas. We love Inglot’s Cream Concealer for its amazing coverage and mattifying formula.
Step Two: Line Your Eyes
Save the dramatic winged liner and smoky eyes for your celebration party. Draw a thin line with a liquid liner for a glossy, polished look. If you just can’t do without a little drama, go for a tiny flick at the ends. Kat Von D’s Ink Liner makes it easy to draw on a precise line.
Step Three: Paint Your Lips
Although red lipstick denotes confidence, it can bleed and smear. A nude-pink shade always looks professional and pretty. NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in ‘Dolce Vita’ is our go to shade for all interviews.
Step Four: Nail It
Unless you are applying to a workplace that loves nail art (lucky you!), consider going for sheer nail paints. Not only do they add a sheen to your nails, but are easy to cover up if they chip. Deborah Lippmann’s ‘Naked’ is a sheer nude that adds just the right amount of colour to nails.
Step Five: Don't Sweat It
All the nervous sweating can make you look shiny, and not in a good way. Take a deep breath and dab on a mattifying cream. Boscia’s No Pores No Shine T-Zone Treatment keeps the oil at bay and will make your pores look smaller. Win-win.
Follow these 5 steps to make a great first impression. All that’s left is putting on a smile and strutting your stuff – we know you’ve got this interview in the bag!
