Make-up Tips for your first job interview

Over the past years i have had an experience of interviewing a lot of job seekers. The ones you remember are the ones that stand out. The women with a circus clown equivalent make-up, a women reeking of so much perfume that makes me want to puke! Or the one who wore the shortest skirt.

As far as i am concerned the rule no. one is if you are bent on wearing a perfume or deodorants kindly do so in minimal. We don’t want the interviewer to faint from an extra dose of what you call is the perfume. 

Rule no 2- is to apply minimal make up. concealer stick, cover-up or powder makeup to mask blemishes and dark circles under your eyes. Concealing unsightly marks on ones face should take about one to two minutes if only treating specific problem areas. A single coat of mascara will only take about one moment per eye, giving just enough definition to lashes, bringing out your eyes. A soft dusting of eye shadow in a complementary shade to ones choice of apparel will further enhance the eyes.

Putting on eye color should take no more than a few seconds, though mascara alone is a good substitute if time does not permit eye shadow application. For soft look to your lips slap some flavored or tinted lip gloss on your lips.

Lipstick or lip stain will draw more attention to your lips than lip-gloss, but either product will make a difference in the way you look and feel.

Invest in a few hairpins, clips and decorative sticks. We are not suggesting elaborate hairstyle here. A sleek cut in hair styling or if you have long hair kindly tie them in a bun or a plat.  Some types of hair accessories allow women to twist their hair up and pin it back, all in about 30 seconds. Spray gel or non-sticky hairspray may also come in handy in order to preserve the style and to secure fly-away.

Light foundation for an even tone to you skin is ok, as long as it matches your skin type and doesn’t give a feeling of wearing a cake look.
