Face for the Future

December 03, 2011

Written By Eileen Castro-Peretz | Photo By Durinda Shaw The makeup you wear to an interview is just as important as the clothes you choose. They both convey a message to the interviewer about you. Pay special attention to your makeup as you face new opportunities. No matter the job or the place of employment, the objective of the interview makeup is to look pleasant and in control. Your entire appearance communicates answers to questions you might want to ask yourself before heading off to the interview:
  • Can she be taken seriously?
  • Does she look pulled-together and professional?
  • Is she a match for this business environment?
Do your research on the company. Be prepared because knowing what is appropriate for any work situation is the key to success. Look polished. Don't dress as though you are going dancing, and don't dress down and without makeup like you are going to the gym. Show that you care about your face and your clothes. Your interview outfit can often signal the appropriate makeup. A power suit is matched by a well-defined power face. Use a lip pencil and good eye definition via shadow and liner. Richer lip colors and eye shadows are definitely appropriate, maybe with red nails. On the other hand, if you wear less-structured clothes to an interview, your makeup should be less defined. Wear neutral makeup tones with less intense lip or eye color and focus on the smooth, clean application of your foundation. You are ready to face your interview. To answer your makeup questions or to address other beauty needs visit my website www.eileenskincare.com or email eileencastro@sbcglobal.net.
