Makeup… Achieving Job Interview Appeal

First impressions play a huge role in how people perceive your personality and acknowledge you as a person, and whether you accept this or not, an interviewer in a job meeting has no other choice but to rely on the first impression you give. Land your dream job by adopting a beauty look that will definitely help you in making the perfect first impression.


When you’re called in for a job interview, you feel blissful that there’s a chance you finally might land the position you’ve been pounding the pavement for - and you sure wouldn’t want to lose this opportunity. There’s no need to panic as makeup has the power to convey neatness and confidence on your face - and these two factors are your weapons to show you have the qualifications required.


Experience Revealed in Makeup

The interviewer needs to know that you have experience, and applying less makeup shows you know what you’re doing. Stick to the “less is more” approach and you’ll see that you might get a raise before you even sign the employment contract! Here are some practical tips that you should thank Fit 'n Style for…


  • Perfect skin means a healthy lady! Show up with unblemished skin by opting for light foundation that doesn’t make your skin look cakey, concealer that brightens up your eyes, and loose powder that evens up your complexion and holds your makeup in place.
  • Colors, bright tones, and shimmery hues show you’re a playful person who likes to have fun, however, you don’t want to imply this impression during a job interview. Stick to neutrals and earthly tones when it comes to both your eyelids and lips.
  • Steer clear from sticky or shimmery lip gloss that seems way too childish for a person who aspires a decent position in a company. Wear lipstick that reveals confidence and security.
  • Don’t exaggerate with makeup. Defined lashes are a must have, so use black mascara and apply one or two coats. Line your eyelids with black liner close to the waterline and avoid smoky shadows.
  • Make sure you have well-groomed eyebrows with no stray hairs.
  • Finally, add a touch of rosy blush so as to not appear pale or sick. You need to look healthy and up for the job!


Proficiency in the Hands

As you speak and brag about your portfolio, the interviewer might look at your hands, and your nails in particular. Make sure you have clean and tidy nails that are neatly polished to reveal that you’re a modern lady who knows how to look pretty. Neglect the French manicure look as it is way too cliché. Stick to neutrals and classic reds instead.
