Interview makeup

It is that time of the year where university courses are finishing and people are having to start applying for graduate jobs. I have had a few interviews of the last few years, and last week when I had a job interview for a graduate job so I thought I put together a post of the makeup which I wore.

The Laura Mercier Foundation Primer is my ultimate favourite as it is a silicon gel which instantly adds hydration and is soothing on the skin. It is really does prime your skin ready for base products to be applied. I applied the Charlotte Tilbury Magic Foundation as it a medium coverage foundation and I wanted it to stay in place and it is a really great match to my skintone. The Charlotte Tilbury Powder is by far my favourite ever powder which I have ever tried. It is velvety soft and feels silky and smooth on the skin. It sets my base products perfectly and helps keep everything fresh and glowy all day. I choose the lightest shade (middle) of the Hourglass Blush palette in Dim Infusion. It adds a lovely peachy glow to the cheeks.

The Charlotte Tilbury Dolce Vita Palette is my favourite for when I want to add a little shimmer to my eyes. I used all of the four shades for a subtle blended golden smokey eye, as I didn't want to rock up in an over the top eyelook as I didn't want my interviewer to be distracted by any of my makeup. I think you should wear your makeup to a interview in the way you would if you was to work within the job role. For me it was a nursing job role, so within the profession we are not allowed to wear anything too bright or loud. However, if you were to be going for a role where being individual is a huge part of your role then go all out!

I never go anywhere without my eyebrows being filled in and structured and I always use the Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Definer in Taupe. This is an amazing brow product as it allows you get instant eyebrows in a few seconds. It has a wide section to help you fill in the middle section of the brow, and a more tapered side to help with definition. I finished off by adding my ever so reliable MAC Lipstick in Brave. It is a medium toned pink-beige with a satin finish which makes it look slightly pearlised when applied to the lips.
