In order to create a lasting impression on that job interview, I would advice to memorize this phrase: Less is more! Leaving a lasting impression doesn’t mean that you have to go all out on the makeup. You want to look polished without looking over the top, that is unless you have an interview as for a makeup artist position. But for any office or white collar jobs, I suggest saving your smoky eyes and hot pink lips for cocktails after you get the job.
For your face, unless you have blemishes or uneven skin tone, I would encourage to only use a concealer or loose powder to avoid heavy foundation that can be overly distracting. However, if you’re like me and need a bit more coverage, I would suggest a lighter foundation. For the eyes, use eyeshadows in neutral shades such as browns, creams or tans. I would avoid a lot of shine to the eyelids because once again, it can be distracting. Mascara and a pencil eyeliner is all you’ll really need. I would stay away from false lashes and the harsh liquid liner. A pair of well-groomed brows demonstrate that you pay close attention to details. So the night before, don’t do it the morning of because it’ll create redness, tweeze away any stray hairs. You can also use a brow gel to set your brows in place. Finally wear a lipstick and not a lipgloss. Gloss can be too shiny for a formal setting.
