We all know how job interviews work; we’re nervous, anxious, a million thoughts (and doubts) are rushing through our brains. Did I wear the right outfit? Do I look “professional” enough? What if my credentials aren’t enough?
Many articles and books state that the outfit you wear can depict what the interviewer thinks of you and can often tell the kind of worker you are. But I think one crucial detail that is often overlooked is makeup. The first impression they see is you as a whole, or in other words, how you look and what you’re wearing. But what about the second impression? It’s your face. When they go in for the handshake and make eye contact, they take notice of your makeup.
To remain professional-like, you don’t want to go overboard with a full blown heavy eye and lip. My suggestion would be a natural look with a bold lip. You want to call attention to your mouth so the interviewer really listens to your awesome, thoughtful answers.
While fall is only 241 days away (did you like how I tried making it sound like less time by adding the word ‘only’?), we still have to suffer in the blistering heat for another 240 days. And while we break out the shorts and crop tops, it’s now time to break out the makeup to cover blemishes, sunburns and to keep us looking good while we sweat it out.
But what happens when that makeup we thought was foolproof fails? You know how it goes–foundation streaks down your cheeks, raccoon eyes develop from runny mascara and eyeliner, smudged lipstick because we accidentally wiped it away… It’s so embarrassing…
Let’s stop the madness of worrying about our makeup and annoying those around us because we can’t put down the mirror or we’re constantly asking them if everything is still in place. Now it’s time for a game plan that involves an effortless look with minimal effort.
Everybody loves a red lip. It’s like the holy grail of everything classic. Is that going too far?
Anyway, achieving this look is not as easy as one may think. You can’t just slather any red color onto your lips, it has to be strategically thought out. Maybe this is too drastic for makeup, but it’s the truth. If you don’t have a red that complements your skin tone (or your eyes) nicely, you won’t accomplish the look you were going for.
Let’s take a look at what shade of red works best for you.
I’ll be completely honest—it’s not that often that I wear makeup. And if you’re expecting a wide range of products here, you won’t find that with this post. I’m picky when it comes to most things but especially makeup. I want to invest in products that not only make my skin look great, but feel great even after I take it off with ingredients that are skin-friendly.
I want high-quality, proof-that-it-works products. And I can definitely say I’ve found it with these five. Take a look!
