The key to interviewing success is confidence!
Try these simple PRO makeup guidelines to help you look and feel amazing at your next interview!
When you’ve got an interview coming up, there’s so much to think about and prepare for. One thing you don’t want to be stressing over is getting ready. To improve your chances of interviewing success, we’ve compiled a collection of super helpful advice from beauty PROs that will have you feeling fierce and fine in no time!
Put down a flawless base
Every great look starts with solid foundations! If you don’t properly prep your face before you start applying makeup, it won’t sit or last as well as it could. Remember to take your individual skin concerns into account. Make sure to moisturize and use an appropriate primer before applying your foundation. Not sure which one will work best with your base? Check out our blog on common foundation mistakes for some helpful pointers.
Use lightweight foundation
When it comes to choosing a foundation for an interview, you want something that’s going to make you feel both natural and comfortable. You probably don’t want anything too heavy or cakey, so full glam is generally a no-no! Our PROs' best advice is to use a foundation or BB cream that you know blends seamlessly with a “your skin but better” finish. This takes us nicely to our next point…
Stick to what you know
While we’re all for experimenting with colorful and trending looks, right before an interview is the one time you don’t want to be doing a makeup trial! Not only will sticking to tried and tested products and techniques guarantee the best results, but it will also avoid any unnecessary stress before your big day.
Don’t forget setting spray
Spending hours perfecting an elegant makeup look and not setting it in place is a risk you don’t want to take when you’ve got an important interview. If you have a setting spray you swear by, then opt for that, but if not, we can recommend cult classic Urban Decay All Nighter Ultra Matte Makeup Setting Spray, $33, or brilliant budget alternative NYX Professional Makeup Matte Finish Long-Lasting Makeup Setting Spray, $9.50.
Another PRO tip: give your face a quick spritz of your go-to setting spray before you apply foundation, as well as after, to really lock in your look!
Touch up if you need to
Even the most carefully applied makeup with an impeccable base locked in with setting spray can require a touch-up here and there. This is especially true if you have to travel to get to your interview, or you have a case of pre-interview nerves. Be prepared for any hiccup by bringing a small kit along with you containing your lip product, some eco-friendly Q-tips for smudges, a lightweight concealer, and some blotting papers. Oh, and don’t forget your compact mirror!
