1. Look natural. Don't apply too much makeup. Make sure your foundation appears natural on the skin, not caked and heavy. Blending is key. Apply Fast Finish Foundation Stick only where you may need it: under the eyes to cover dark shadows, over blemishes to conceal them, and to blend over uneven skin tone.
2. Go for a classic look. Save the dark, smoky eyes for an evening look. Keep your eye makeup clean, applying a neutral color palette. Neutral shades appear natural and professional while not drawing unnecessary attention to your makeup. You want your résumé to stand out, not your overdone face.
3. Use a light hand. When applying your cheek color use a light hand and a soft brush. Try a blush shade that adds warmth, not artificial color, to your skin. A heavy-handed application of the wrong shade could look like a bruise or a burn.
4. Watch your mouth. Remember your lips are a focal point during the interview. Don't wear sparkling lip shades or an extreme wet-look lip gloss; they may distract the interviewer. Always blot your lips with a tissue after application to remove the excess. Once you've secured the job, check what's acceptable in your new workplace, making sure you wear the appropriate makeup for your environment. Try Fashion Fair Lip Teasers for the right amount of shine.
5. Check in with your compact. Apply pressed powder right before you enter the interview to absorb any excess oil and soften the appearance of lines. Try Fashion Fair Pressed Powder for normal to dry skin and Oil Control Pressed Powder for oily skin.
