Job Interview Makeup

IMG_8728

IMG_8733Begin with a moisturizer, because moisturizeing your face is IMPORTANT. Then, prime your face– some say this makes no difference whereas others like me find it vital so it lasts all day and goes on nice and smooth.

IMG_8736Onto face necessities, I wouldn’t say foundation is necessary because it’s important to not completely cover up, at least it’s a tip I carry when meeting someone new- and especially for an interview. Eyebrows are up to you, but I find filling mine in a task worthwhile since they may be accidentally covered in concealer and it tends to bring any look at all together on the face. I have with the dip brow, an essence eyeliner brush which I find works just as good as the matching $18 brush which sits next to the product on the shelf.

IMG_8737A cat eye is a bit much for an interview, so a nice brown smudge of a line with a slight flick at the end brings attention to the eyes without being overpowering. Mascara is a go-to no matter where I’m going I feel a little more put together with mascara on, and once again it brings attention to one’s eyes.

IMG_8739Blush is always a fun time; I have a matte and a shimmery one- its personal preference really. I like to go for shimmery coral because I find it looks natural and glowing whereas matte reminds me of fall and works best for a super natural approach. Along with powder (which should go on before blush) I would suggest using a setting brush instead of a giant fluffy one if just going with concealer.

IMG_8740Highlighter is to glow, and I am one who loves glowing haha. I also have a lip balm with color (completely go for Burt’s Bees because this is Dior and this was a splurge for me) so it’s not too much like lip gloss or lipstick can sometimes be. Setting spray to set the face and re-hydrate is next, if needed.

Instagram

“The people who have hundreds of photos on Instagram are narcissists”– I was scrolling through social media and I heard someone say this. I don’t agree…

I used to question why people had 500 or so photos myself, but now I understand that it’s in a way a photo book. 

Sure, some are filtered and there is now the Instagram story… but you know, it’s cool to think that 40 or so years from now we can look back and look at every moment that ever made us think “hey let me pull out my phone, take a picture, or vlog (recording video of a day) because I want to remember this.”

Not only that, but we won’t have the questions from others of “what did you look like when you were younger?” And the thoughts of “wow I wish I could remember that day” because even if we forget about a social media account, it will always be there as long as we remember it at some point. 

Hear me out, I love physical copies of photos– but it’s nice to have a backup. It’s nice to pull out a phone at the drop of a hat and take a photo or video of family, an event, some random moment that made you laugh, or a city/ place you’ll never see again. 

Of course, there’s always a way back, but never a way back to that specific moment. The invention of film and photography has brought the privilege of being able to reel that picture back to us. 

Not just from parents perspectives, but children’s perspectives too. It’s bittersweet. 

More sweet than anything– I don’t know anyone that hasn’t had the thought “wow I wish I could relive that moment for a second,” young, or old. 

I for one love social media such as Instagram for this, because it truly is a giant photo book that shows a million different perspectives. 

But, physical copies of photos, books, cd’s, are something that I hope never go out of style because that’s what gave social media sites their start– and we can’t forget the moments or people that gave us our start. 

Love,
