Many of us are going on internships/summer jobs: myself included. In addition to dressing to impress, your makeup & hair needs to look natural & polished for interview success.
Interview beauty can be tricky because you want to make sure you're making a good impression, while still looking natural & chic. This post'll help you achieve the perfect interview look to help you score the job/internship of your dreams!!!
DO: Keep your nails short & tidy with no hangnails & no cuticles!!
Allow yourself to show some personality with your color choice but keep it sophisticated. Try shades of red, light pink, nude or if you're willing to play it a little dangerous you can go for a dark purple.
DON'T: Use your job interview as an opportunity to try out the latest shade of green, hot pink or neon yellow nail polish.
DO: Keep your makeup clean & simple- your goal is fresh & put-together.
A few swipes of mascara, an even complexion with a sheer, non cakey, foundation & a nude lip can go a long way in showing that you're ready to work. If you want to show a little more personality with your makeup you can try red lipstick or a subtle cat-eye.
DON'T: Wear a smokey eye, heavy eyeliner, loads of bronzer or anything else that you'd put on when going clubbing.
DO: Wear a hairstyle that is both chic & refined.
Try the classic ponytail, but don't be afraid to put a twist on it such as tying a braid into it, leaving your bangs down or trying a slightly messier style. You can also leave your hair down, whether it's straight or curly, as long as it isn't out of control or over-styled.
DON'T: Let your hair speak louder than you do.
Don't worry about an elaborate up-do or large volume & waves.
DO: Dress the part.
Unless you're applying somewhere beginning with the word moonlight, body, nude or girls, please don't dress like an exotic dancer. Listen, I'm all for looking & feeling feminine, yet when you dress like you're going out to a club, especially in the middle of the day, it takes the focus away from you & your qualifications for the job. If you're one of those who're trying to get a job through your sex appeal, consider the person interviewing you might be a woman & then you'll be screwed. To stay on the safe side, dress in neutral colors & don't show too much skin.
What kind of beauty products do you wear to job interviews??? What do you do to pump yourself for the nerve-racking interview??? I'd ♥ to hear how all your interviews are going!
